ERROR - New Thread “Awaiting Approval”?
« on: 01 December 2022, 11:04:54 »

I posted a new thread on the mech fan designs board last night, and the system gave the post an “Awaiting Approval” label in the title and the post itself has a pink background and similar note “This message is awaiting approval by a moderator.”  I’m not sure anyone else can see the thread (only a handful of views), but here’s the link:

https://bg.battletech.com/forums/battlemechs/bushmaster-bushwacker-c/

Did I miss something and new threads now require mod approval?

Or did I accidentally click something I shouldn’t have?

Or is the system just screwy and I need to get a mod/admin to fix?

Thx for any insight.

...okay, so the one I already knew about wasn't an isolated incident.  That's... concerning.  I'm going to ping the sysadmin again.

New threads are not supposed to require moderator approval.  I want to be clear: We are not interested in requiring that.  The feature set that apparently involves isn't turned on in the board settings (and to my knowledge never has been), let alone the settings to require us to review anything in that board or anywhere else.

Looks like the anti-spam plugin flagged it as spam.  There's also something else funky I see.  We're going to keep looking into it.

Roger.  When you know, just let me know if I should repost as new thread or if old one will be fixed.  Will hold off doing anything in the meantime.

Thx much.

Once we've got it resolved, I'll approve the post for you.  For now I want to leave it like I found it so it can be examined.

Any estimate on when this will be over and the thread “approved”?

Thx.

Gave up waiting and just posted the same content again in a new thread.  Worked this time.  If a Mod or Admin is paying attention, they can just delete the old thread at the link above.
