Hi,

Apologies if this has been asked elsewhere, I searched it and nothing came up.

Does the moderator approval for every post a user makes get removed after a certain amount of posts or is it permanent??

It's either after 25 or 50 posts IIRC. I suggest a handy way to reach that amount is to take part in the L2's prediction league ;)

Just another way to stop spam accounts IIRC.

Thanks for the responses guys, seems a tad overkill really but I do get why it's there.

I'll check out the Prediction League.

A single unitary authority for urban Dorset
Last year the forum went through a period of getting absolutely smashed by spam bots.
The 'first 25 posts check' was part of a package of measures put in place to stop that. And to my knowledge so far, not a single spam bot has managed to get through the system since. I appreciate it's not ideal for new users, and it causes me a load more work, but it's worth it compared to that nonsense.
Gaz12321 You should now be good to post as normal

AFCB_Mark I totally understand, I used to run a forum a few years back and that got hammered with spam all the time as well.

I appreciate you removing it for me.

Can mine get removed too please?

I feel like I can't get involved with this restriction.

Thank you.

As a new member, your posts will initially be reviewed by the staff.

Once you have made 10 posts, this restriction will be eased.

Thanks,
TB
