Default How long / many posts before my posts don't need moderating?

Hi mod team,

Not a problem, but a question (I think this is the right place - feel free to move if required): I'm curious how many posts I need to make or how long I need to be a member (or whatever other metric you use) before my posts no longer need moderator approval?!

No malicious intent here, and I completely understand the need to moderate new people / users and their posts, I'm just curious how long I need to be "baby sat"!! Thanks! How long / many posts before my posts don't need moderating?

I think I've "crossed the line" - not quite sure what the criteria is, but I must have reached it!

You crossed the line at some point and are a normal registered user now. There are no hard and fast rules in reaching that point.

Well I wish I could cross the line, its kinda annoying to come back and see my previous comments lost in the thread. I didn't want to make a bunch of lame post to get there. if I have to wait weeks before I accumulate 10 or 20 thoughtful post , Ill probably forget about the community till the next time it pops up in a google search.

Well over 460,000 other members managed it Sometimes Moderators can be a bit scarce so a post approval might be delayed. This is only your third post. it would be unusual not to be freed by 10 posts, but it does happen. The count is not the most important aspect...

If the criteria include "more than XXX days since joining, and no bad behavior", there's nothing you can do except wait XXX days.

If the criteria include "more than YYY posts / attempted posts, and no bad behavior", I recommend making two or three enthusiastic but not lengthy replies, per day, to various discussions in The Lounge. A painless and simple way to boost your post count.

If the criteria include "more than ZZZ high quality posts / attempted posts, and no bad behavior", you may not have the patience to create all of that good stuff, only to see it get rejected.

I know the back end Mods and hosting pretty darn good, and have to call you out on that 460,000 cause I know how it works, Members: 468,627, Active Members: 26,250

slightly argumentative, full of crap, and unaware of what I don't know. Should fit in just fine.
