Your post isn't showing ... right NOW? This could be why...

I've noticed some people on this board, despite the prevalence of use of phpBB3, aren't used to one of the basic anti-spam features that acts as a first line of defense against spam robots.

Basically, if your post isn't showing up right away, it's because your post has been entered into a moderation queue. This isn't exactly a heavy forum, so our moderators don't appear every minute of every day - and this forum is also not run by any commercial entity and does not enforce such timely obligation on the moderators.

So what does that mean? It may take a while for your post to show up. Just because you don't see it doesn't mean it's not there - if you get the message that your post was successful you can rest assured that it is. Unfortunately there is nothing we can do at this time to speed the process along, although occasionally some of us do see curious queue icons on the forums and investigate. In most cases, posts are approved within 2 days, if not that almost always within a week.

Sorry if this is an inconvenience for you, but it is there. Hopefully this will help clear up any confusion. If you need to edit a previous post but cannot see it, you are free post your message a second time, in edited form, and if you wish to avoid confusion, inform the moderators inside your post that the original is obsolete. They will find it and take care of it accordingly. :)

Yes, DRD Team has, in the past, been a target for spam bots - so this step is necessary to block them out.
