"a moderator has to approve your post" message came up
3 days later and 3 separate posts and they still do not appear.
How am I meant to progress as a new member (on this particular forum) and impart my extensive knowledge of Jags, if the moderators just delete and/or don't even bother checking my posts? (they do not break any rules whatsoever btw, completely within the guidelines. I even went to the trouble of paragraphing)
Not at all pleased..... "Jaguarforum The Worlds #1 Jaguar Car Forum" never did this to me.... maybe they are right 🤔🤔

Right so, 5 mins after posting this. all my posts appear... coincidence? I think not!!
why could't that have just been done in the first place?

Still, glad to have it all sorted now

This forum gets bombarded with spammers and bots, so there is an automated system in place which blocks some new members posts.

For whatever reason, your account, email address, post frequency or style, triggered the system. Seems that you never posted an introduction thread in the new members area, posting a thread and building up your post count there usually avoids the spam filters.

Just FYI the moderators here are volunteers, not paid staff. I have now approved those posts which were held back, I had not seen them prior to your rant in this thread

I found it quite amusing this thread was also blocked by the system, I guess the computer just doesn't like you.

Yeah I know! I obviously did something to the spam filter!
that was literally the last nail in the coffin!!
U have no idea how mad I was when the post, about there being no moderators, needed a mod's approval!!

thanks for sorting it out for me

I think you have the right to be angry with your fully paid "gold level" membership
