Posts that need approval

I attempted to post a roadmap thread for Boom Boom Rocket a few hours ago, before I was told that it would require moderator approval to be posted. Upon further inspection, it looks like I should have posted it here. However, I spent a lot of time working on that roadmap, so I was wondering if it's still pending approval, or if it's been flat-out denied and I haven't received notification yet.

Due to the amount of spam we get, we have some behind the scenes rules that auto-moderate certain posts. I am not going to disclose all of the rules, but your guide fell prey to the auto-moderation. You didn't do anything wrong, so you don't need to worry about that aspect, and I have since approved your post.

Also having an issue with needing moderator approval. I posted in a trading thread for Fable 3 a few hours ago, and it's not shown up yet. Not sure if I have to repost or just keep waiting.

I also have a thread I decided to start last night that hasn't seem to have been approved, I'm really hoping it hasn't just been lost either. I'm still trying to get my first five posts to validate my account as not being spam :L

I don't see any pending from you, so perhaps one of the moderators saw it and approved it. Let me know if you have further issues.

I think that was me.. I got distracted and forgot to post a response that I had taken care of it. Damn ADD.

Is there any way to avoid every single post I make having to be approved by the moderators. I am not a robot. Can you guys mark my account in some way please? After lurking on the site and forums for so long now that I have decided to get involved it is a real turn off not having posts to up or not being able to link a gamer card immediately. Rant done! I wish I could end with a witty quote from one of the robots in blade runner questioning whether I am real or not but sadly I don't know any! Thank you!

I'm also getting the "needs to be approved" message on each post. I'm new here so I don't know if that goes away eventually or what.

After you have posted enough times, it goes away. Also, you are more likely to be auto-moderated if your posts contain links to external sources.

I get that moderator approval frequently. Not that I use foul language in a "demeaning" manner, certain words get picked up while making a point.

I've needed to have a number of posts approved. I've just posted a list of games/DLCs, etc in the Deals of the Week thread and it needs approving. I posted a list first and it needed tidying up so reposted a tidier list. If a moderator reads this, could you please approve my second post in that thread rather than both?

Also, quick query, what is the post count needed to reduce/stop the auto moderation? Thanks.

I've approved the 2nd post. I don't know if there is a certain number but from what I can gather it is around 15 posts before the auto moderation stops. If any more of your posts are moderated feel free to send me a message

Automoderation for posts without links stops pretty quickly. It is the inclusion of a hyperlink that triggers the panic response from the software. That doesn't go away until 50 or 100 posts, I forget which. I think 100 however.
