ATTENTION ALL NEW MEMBERS: POST APPROVAL

Post by P-F1 Mod »

In an effort to prevent trolls or spammers posting on this forum, your first post[s] will need moderator approval and you may not access the private messaging function or start a new topic until account approval has been given by a senior moderator.

If you still require approval having already posted elsewhere, make a request here please.

ALL NEW MEMBERS - IF YOU WANT TO HAVE YOUR POSTS BYPASSING THE POST APPROVAL SYSTEM DURING THE RACE, PLEASE MAKE YOUR FIRST POST BEFORE 4.30am GMT.

In other words, make your first post more then 90 minutes before race start. After that I will be watching the race, and won't be checking into here at all. Since I am the only mod with access to the admin panel [albeit limited], once I leave for the race, you will have to wait for mods to approve your posts and I can't promise many of the team online then.

Hi,

I used to be a member on this forum but lost my account, I've opened this new account and was wondering when my posts stop needing approval and also how long it takes for approval?

How long approval takes depends when mods are online. You stop needing approval in a few minutes when I remove you from that list.

There's no set timescale/post count, it's just when I get time to go through a list full of banned spammers to find all the members who are actually human. I'll do a sweep this evening.

Any new members who have posted prior to now should be able to bypass the post approval software.

Stitch - very sorry, somehow your name slipped through the net. Problem fixed.

Phil - you should now have all the permissions the rest of the approved members have.

Hi, I am in a similar situation that RealPhilBrown was in. I joined yesterday, but cannot start a new thread. Why is this?

The reason is that your name hasn't yet been taken off the list. We don't remove you once you sign up, we remove you once you post. If we just approved every new member, we'd end up approving spammers as well.

Unfortunately, until we approve your account the forum won't let you start new threads.

Hi, I'm Marc. Currently working on rebuilding http://f1.wikia.com (F1 Wiki). I'd like to ask if you would mind me posting on this forum to try to attract new editors? The wiki isn't in great shape at the moment and I could do with some help from people who know what they're writing about. Unfortunately I can't post at the moment as a result of me being a newly signed-up user. Please can you let me know what you think?

Thanks

Marc

Hi there, I'm new to this forum. Have started putting some posts but all require mods approval. Just wondering how long does it take for this restriction to be removed? Thanks.

OK, that's weird. I'll have another look through the list.

EDIT: Now it should work.

Please be aware that I will be away from the forum a lot over the summer months due to offline commitments. I will be around when I can to activate and derestrict accounts, but I may have to hand overaccess to this account to other mods so as to maintain moderator access the the admin panel. This may result in delays in requests and accounts being processed, but we will do our best.

Regards,

It's slightly pot luck at the moment, because I'm barely around for the foreseeable future and I'm the only one who can approve the accounts. Posts can be approved, but if not by me then names stay on the list so I apologise to anyone having problems and urge them to PM me.

Thank you for the response and to whom ever have approved my first couple of post. As this forum host is unfamiliar to me I cannot seem to figure out how to pm you. I will be patient.
Thanks again.....I cannot believe I did not join here sooner for fantastic F1 talk.

Maybe not for new members? All that's at the bottom is your profile and quote and no PM in your profile.

If you could take me off the list I'd appreciate it.

I wasn't aware that new members couldn't send PMs, that's interesting.

You should be able to post normally now.
