Thread: Post activation

  1. #11
    It is good if you have it set for the first few posts when someone joins, but if every post has to be sent for approval, I leave within a short time of trying to post.

    It's different if they have had spam attacks and it's only for new members or something but I disagree with it having all the time.

    I have this, but only in one section of my forum, the Websites section. And that's only so i can moderate sites that have or have not given link backs.

    I agree. I don't want to wait for an moderator to approve my good quality post.

    It would be a nightmare on a large forum to approve new posts. I can't see the reasoning behind it. I tired it once on a few smaller sections of my forums and I just couldn't keep up with it. In the end you have to deal with the posts as they come in. I moderate new members from time to time when I am getting spammed.

    I just leave right then and there if they have that; there is no good reason for it, and is very annoying from the users view. But it may be smart from the Admins view because-

    Post activation= no spam

    yet it also equals:

    post activation= no activity.


    i agree with this but i think if someone spams you delete their post and warn them, if they keep spamming then you ban them

    I would only put it on users that are known to spam or flame. For the whole board, gawd no

    Are you guys talking about post moderation?

    I guess it sucks, but some communities either are very selective or they are extremely spam-protective.

    I only moderate posts (post activation) on only certain people who spam.... or break the rules alot of times.

    Yeah, its bad when trying to post an introduction. Don't really feel welcome then.
