Suddenly Moderated?

In posting today I have noticed that my posts are being moderated. May I ask the reason for this? Just kind of confused.

This board has always been moderated. The moderators review all posts and topics for any rule violations and approve all posts that don't break those rules. During the past 24 hours, for example, several spammers were banned and more than a dozen spam posts were deleted. The main reason we moderate this board is to stop spamming, which, if we did not do, would greatly diminish each user's experience here.

We did recently change the method of moderation here, so you may notice a slight difference.

Take care,

Scott

Thanks for posting this! I was curious too... all of a sudden I was getting this message of "A moderator will preview your post" every time I wrote something, and I was thinking "OMG, what did I do??"

Somebody would tell you if you something were wrong. :)

It may take longer for your posts to get approved as we all get used to this system, please don't take it personally, we're trying to figure things out too. :)

We are still fine-tuning the changes to the moderation methods. All of us are in North America, so there there is a period when we tend to all be asleep. Posts made during that time may experience longer delays than usual before being approved.

I was wondering exactly the same thing. I thought "Oh my what did I say?" I also notice a "watch status" at the bottom of my name... what does that mean?

Thanks for your help.

The 'warn status' bar under your name would show you if you had been warned for any rule violations. You would also receive a PM explaining everything. BUT, you have no warnings. :P The bar is only visible to you and the moderators. Everyone has one, but you only see yours.

Welcome to the forum! :)

Ohhhh thank you so much for your reply. At 60 years old and having been on the Internet in chat rooms and on forums for many many years, I have never felt as awkward as I did when I received the moderator notice and warn status... thought I did something wrong. I appreciate your answer and explanation.

We're pretty anti-spam here. I know it's a bit of a hassle for new members, but then, you don't log on and see 15 tennis shoe posts either...

Wow!  I had cold urticaria (hives) when growing up.  Actually my whole life.  Amazing, it resolved after my celiac disease diagnosis.   Luckily, I live in Sunny Southern California.  It made for a hard time skiing, but I did it anyway.  Swimming in the Pacific Ocean triggered it too.  Even an ice cube on my skin caused.  Girls were required to wear dresses to school back back in the day, but I was exempted because of those hives.   When glutened though I now get chronic autoimmune urticaria
