As a nubie to the forum I have to wait hours if not days for my posts to be authorized by the mods. This makes it unfriendly and impossible for nubies.

I was nice knowing you

Oh no - don't start it all over again...

It ended up as a diatribe against SJD and CUK, which went on and on and on, posting some pretty nasty / libellous things.

Billy-Bob - the post that is not up yet was deleted as it contributed nothing to the discussion. Once you get to a level of good posts then you can post without moderation. You are struggling to reach that level due to the low number of posts and the low quality of your posts. Fix either and you will be posting freely before you know it.

Before you say about the things that others post on the board... Others here have earned the right to post drivel, you need to earn your stripes now unfortunately and we can choose to be a bit pickier about the quality of posts that we let through from n00bs.

Hear, hear!

Billy-Bob: Unless you temper your postings with jibes, insults and barely-disguised offence, you'll just have to put up with waiting.

Great and abiding grief.

Exacerbated by the new server...

No forum available for what seemed like years...

Yeah, Zeity must have missed about 4000 posts in the time we lost...
