    Jacques, we get spammers in here occasionally, so the site's software is set to recognize certain things and flag them. Most of the time, it's no big deal and the post are approved. Occasionally, a spammer gets in here and the post approval thing allows us to catch them. As you can tell, we try to keep this site spammer free, so this process of approvals is a small price for us to pay. Generally, the spam filter only looks at your first 10 posts, so hang in there.

    The best thing you can do is make sure you read the forum rules. Like any other club or organization or business, there is a structural guideline for this community. It is part of why this place is so great in my opinion. It provides for a good balance between freedom and accountability. The result is that we rarely ever have any problems. Yes, something will flare up occasionally but for the most part, it's seems to be a smooth running machine. My job (and any of us moderators) would be a lot harder if these rules weren't in place.

    Welcome again!

    I know from working with Drum Bum through the years, that this forum is costly to run. It requires server fees, hosting, ongoing moderation, advertising, software upgrades, security certificates and IT work when it breaks. All in addition to the expenses that come from running a business. These costs are offset (hopefully) by members that click through to Drum Bum to make a purchase now and then, if not make a contribution to help keep it running.

    On behalf of Drum Bum, thank you for your consideration.

    Being a moderator on another forum and after reading the rules, I have zero problem with anything. Totally worth it to keep things clean.

    Glad I found this thread... I thought I wasn't posting properly at first. It is a good feature to keep on top of spam. Although, depending on the posting volume and frequency of new members, I imagine it could get busy for the admin.

    See you on the boards!

    Welcome to Drum Chat Rick.

    You are soooo right about all this keeping the administration busy. They're the real heroes of this place.

    Just out of curiosity, how long does it generally take for posts to be approved? I posted a few things last night that had images, and all have gone for moderator approval. Not a big deal, but if it's more than a day or two, I'll just hold off on making posts with images for a while (so that the posts aren't finally visible after they've lost relevance).

    Thanks!

    Sometimes we get behind, sorry. They're approved now. Also, be sure to review the forum rules. Sometimes that's what holds up posts. There is no vintage buying or selling in here and the classifieds section requires 100 posts to post in there. - Thx

    Does this mean that I have to post at least 10 posts before it stops happening?

    My very first post went through with no problem, but my other posts didn't.
