    @backlong90 - You a listed as a standard member so you should be able to post fine. PM me with the details of the issue you are having and I'll see if I can figure out why.

    Sometimes it takes a couple hours from the time I approve a message to when you get promoted. I just checked your account and it says you have full member status. If you still get that message then something must be messed up in the database. Let me know and I can take a deeper look.

    Your system also does not allow replies to be posted until they are moderated. You should at least let replies be accepted automatically. This is frustrating and rediculous. Do you really hate spam that much that you will do everything to stop it, even if it hinders your business. I was thinking of support you, but now, I'm getting the feeling that I am not welcome, so I won't.

    Yeah, this needs to be fixed. My forum at Gamination is set up so that all you have to do is enter a code and three questions (which, the answers are already given to you in the question. Really simple and easy), which is really more than you need to combat spam.

    Hi Brandon, I'm sorry waiting a day for the moderation to take place caused trouble for you. Based on spam issues that crippled this site about a year ago, I'm over-protective for sure. I will look into what you've suggested as an alternative way to post messages. In the meantime, you should be all set and can now post freely.

    Thanks for clearing that up, BantamCityGames. Some new people have joined the forum since then, including Marek Codex. Just a heads up!

    Hi, I have made a couple posts, but I am having the same invisible post situation happening. My first post was a couple of days ago? Should I do something to gain the ability to post? Thanks in advance for your help!

    Sorry ccowan, I sometimes miss posts when I'm moderating and I only do this extremely part time. You should be all set now.

    Hi, sorry, I saw this thread too late... So there might be a double version of my thread in "Help Wanted (Unpaid)". Sorry for the inconvenience!
