View Full Version : Forum Moderation

From now on we will be moderating posts made by new users.

A user is considered new if they have only made a few posts on the forum, even if thy have been with us for some time.

The reason why we're doing this is because we've had a bit of a problem with spammers recently. Basically, if you have less than a certain number of posts on the forum (obviously not including deleted posts :p), all posts you make will have to be validated by the moderators before they appear on the forum, until you have had enough posts accepted.

There will obviously be a delay between you posting your thread or post and it appearing on the forum, particularly if you post during the middle of the night, UK time, as all the mods are based in the UK. Please don't repeatedly post the same thread, as we'll get annoyed and probably hand out infractions.

Please also read the forum rules, here: http://forum.team17.co.uk/showthread.php?t=35015
