Same here. 18 was a hell of a long time ago for me :cry:

I'm curious though. I made two responses to this post. One was approved and the other not. The reason given was that it contained a link to illegal or pirated software. It didn't. It contained an image link to my ImgBB account, exactly the same as the image in my post about Trike wanted in for sale or wanted and that one was approved.

I too appreciate that there are issues with online forums - of which I am an active member of many - but this is the only one I've ever come across with such a delay. Like Union man says, it can be very off putting.

Whatever. This one is infinitely better than the 'other' one.

Yes I agree I was on another forum and to be honest it was a bit of a click and also gets boring and its the same old issue

My only gripe is here things are not directly posted. But otherwise well done MoDerators.

I recall many moons ago the late Bill Hayles who ran the Costablancaexpats Forum didn't give you trusted status for a long time. You then got a message to say you had earned your badge of honour and your posts appeared directly :)

Yes bee that’s a great idea. When I had our beer forum you gained the updates and also we unskilled people from newbie to professional we did have a member who posted 10.000 post so we made him a honorary life member. With a impressive logo. Just a idea.

It`s a sorry state of affairs when posts have to be vetted first before being allowed on the forum. .. It`s like being treated like a load of naughty children.
Whoever thought that daft idea up .. We`ve never needed it before, so why now all of a sudden when hardly anyone posts any more. :roll:
