This forum is fantastic however....

Post by schismatic » Wed Feb 29, 2012 9:22 am

.........it's slower than treacle. Is there really a reason why every single post pretty much needs to be approved first before it appears on the forum?

While there may well be a good reason (and I suspect it's to do with spam...), the speed of the forum just feels like it stifles really good debate on here. It can take literally days to get an answer to a question unfortunately, whereas it appears that there's a strong community chomping at the bit to discuss this awesome product. It feels like this forum could be so much more lively and is waiting to be so, but the whole approving thing is just stopping it.

I might be wrong, but I'm sure I'm not the only person who feels this.

Anything we can do to let this forum fly?! :)

In fact they do (until you exceed specific number of posts).
Spam protection.

We have about 10 to 50 spam post per day. After 10 approved post you might not wait for admin approval.

Yes, after 10 you're a free bird.

Like it was mentioned before, we get inundated with SPAM daily. This filtering idea allows us to keep the forum clean with the cost of a 10-post minimum for new users. A small price to pay, really.

There is another problem: currently there is 40621 forum members :shock: and the number is rapidly growing everyday. You can imagine how many of them are spam generated.
