My post doesn't appear

Post by Ramage » November 27th, 2014, 1:03 pm

I've tried numerous times over the last few days to submit a new topic to 'General Philosophy' under the title 'Objectively evaluating the concept of Eternal Annihilation'. On submitting the post I recieve the message that it will be reviewed before appearing - but it never has appeared. - Wonder why? Admittedly my email's not working, so maybe I've been notified there's a problem with the post that I'm unaware of- but I can't think what problem there could be.

I have also run into this weird limitation that I have never seen elsewhere. But OK, I can see the reasoning behind it. However, having only had one post released so far it looks like it turns up in the thread at the point it was originally posted, which for a quick moving thread may be well out of contention for actually being seen. In other words it might be 20 posts ago and no-one will see it.

If that's the case it kinda takes away the motivation to comment...

It depends on the number of active moderators how fast posts get approved. Currently it's more active but when too few moderators are active there is a long queue.
