New users will have their first 5 posts "approved" by the moderating team before being made public - this has been put in place due to the recent outbreak of SPAM infesting all forums (not just UKS) since mid January.

Also, if your are 5 posts or under you will now find yourself in the Newly registered users group and you will be subject to the same procedure until you get past that 5th post.

This also means that you will not be able to respond to PMs until out of your Newly registered user status.

Good idea Si. 8)
All these spam posts of late are a pain, downside is it means more work for the mod & admin teams.
Well played fellas. 8)

You can change/update in in the User control panel at any time.
in fact its a pre requisite now, so if you change anything, and its still blank, you'll have to fill it in.

The king of spam (we'll call him 'Pot' for arguements sake?), calls the new member (we'll call him 'Kettle'?) black? :lol: :lol:

Well I know I post a right load of old gibberish most of the time, is that spam?
I dont know, I thought spam was loads of links to porn sites blasted all over the place...& I like to keep those to myself! :lol:
I suppose I could be classed as a troll, but Im not 100% sure what one of those is to tell the truth.
Oh, I dont do pot, no issues with those who do, thats up to them but its a big no no for me.
I do have a good relationship with the kettle though, it gives me coffee so we get on well.
Is this a spam post or am I trolling?

I need to learn more about these computer terms. :lol:

I understand why, but it’s still quite frustrating as your reply eventually gets posted after approval half way down the topic gaining fewer views.

Seems like a very sensible idea to me, and as a new subscriber to thisforum it took under 24hrs to get my first 5 comments approved, which ain't bad! Cheers, Angus

Just typing a topic to introduce yourself as a new member and getting that approved would seem just as good at selecting out the spammers. The waiting period for the new messages to be placed is not a nice thing... I hate waiting.;)

Are there different moderators who 'look over' these new postings?

Reason i ask is because i posted a new topic in the Projects section before i posted two other postings and those two postings are placed but the new topic is still invisible...

I'm almost at 5 postings now. ;-)
