Why does it take days for my posts to show up and be approved?

Hellboy needs to move you to a different group. You're still in the "Newly Registered" group.

I believe he's Arizonabay on the old forum, but got locked out and created a new login like the others. Hopefully he'll see this and confirm so you can fix him up.

FYI: He posted an interesting tidbit on the "Aenima CD's Spurious catalog insert/jam cd Discussion" last week that was stuck in the spam filter.

Edit: You may want to check on these fuckers too. Think they got lumped in with the Spammers:

Bogart
trilobite
Tool_User

Is there anyway I can get my posts approved by the mods or, preferably, put into a group that doesn't require approval to post? How can I prove I am not a spambot?

Anyway I can move out of this moderated status?

I had a lot of posts on the old 4th =X

//edit

This post went through w/o needing to be approved, not sure what that means...

Apparently, I can approve posts, but don't have the rights to move people out of the "Newly Registered Users" group. So it's up to Hellboy to move you once he's sure you're not a 'bot.

You can get moved out of there, but I can't do it while on the road. You'll have to wait another day I'm afraid...

I just approved a bunch of potential spam that wasn't. If your post gets moderated, be patient, we will get to it.

This.

I am hitting the moderation queue on the regular, but this is a volunteer position, ya'hear? Hellboy will get you moved when he can.

FYI: I will be held hostage by Tool all day tomorrow and out most of Wed as well.

LULz. I will address each in turn, as it amuses me to do so...

>he's a moderator - Yes
>on the internet - Yup
>on an Tool fansite - Uh.... yeah.
>he does it for free - Without a doubt
>he takes his "job" very seriously - to a point
>he does it because it is the only amount of power and control he will ever have in his pathetic life - I have a modicum of "power" in my real job, but I don't really get off on that. So... no.
>he deletes threads he doesn't like because whenever he gets upset he has an asthma attack - Never. Hellboy can confirm (or deny)
>he deletes threads he doesn't like because they interfere with the large backlog of little girl chinese cartoons he still has to watch - See above
>he will never have a real job - See above
>he will never move out of his parent's house - LOL
>he will never be at a healthy weight - Ouch. I am on the portly side, but working on it. You should talk... knowamsayin?
>he will never know how to cook anything besides a hot pocket - Au contraire. I get raves on my culinary skills regularly.
>he will never have a girlfriend - Got a hot wife. Sorry.
>he will never have any friends - I have wonderful friends.
>Tyson is jelly - Clearly!!!
