    all this will do is create a behaviour change until they get through or they may sail close to the wind without breaking T+C's
  2. I expected to be approved by now with my fairly innocuous new post

    If I were a real new poster I would have given up by now

    So how does it work?

    You were approved and it was posted 12 hours ago.

  4. ooooo thanks

    they said that they would email me

    and they did not no message or anything
    how would I have actually known
  5. And it posted at the time that I posted it in terms of its position on the thread I wonder what time it actually appeared ... it was not there when I went to bed
  6. Ah I didn't realise that they said they would email you. I had seen your message ages ago and wondered why you hadn't.
    Sorry if I was a bit short earlier, the aftermath of trying to persuade my 3 year old to talk to her Dad.

    The funny thing is, if they then post it much later and slot it into the thread at the time the poster originally wanted it posted, the post would essentially be lost as pages might have gone by in the debate.

    Oh the lost people, wandering the desert.

  8. lost, yes but otherwise it would not make sense
  9. JustTesting is a 'new' poster who has been here before.

    A bit messy really, but, if it rids the trolls then so be it. I sit and wait to see the results. Is there a statistician here keeping count and pulling together a graph with the findings?

    As to the Opera Browser, I think we were talking about it here, well I was, airy is right, it works every where else bar here. All I ask is someone tested the site first. The fact now the same issues happen with 2 other browsers is not great really. And there was no sign there is even going to be attempts to fix it. I mean really, how long ago did the new site come on line? 2 years this year?

    God, 2 years already. WOW

    I read it about 10 minutes after the time stamp on it. And there were several other posts after it at that time, so I'm guessing it appeared immediately.
  12. I am very pleased it has happened.
    No longer do I have to do the forum equivalent of walking through my chavvy area - check for dogturds, which appear with such regular monotony, that I have no time to enjoy the view.
    How lovely to open threads with confidence.
    Thank you moderators.
  13. Plenty of forums have pre-mod and it doesn't put new posters off. I see no reason why it would here - and it will probably make it much easier for new posters anyway.
  14. I might be tempted back

    It would seem they can still star-rate threads though?
  16. Can they? I have forgotten how to check who has rated. I have probably rated myself by mistake.

  17. Thanks, Mods [​IMG]
  18. Yes Genabi, it is me that was the point

    Thank you from me too.xx [​IMG]
  20. I must have missed it

    As I said I thought I was waiting for an email

    Do not get me wrong, I think it is a great idea .... I just wonder how it is going to work in principle and I wonder why it is limited to Personal, is this a start or a definitive decision
