    Hello, I wasn’t sure where to post this on the board. I seem to have an issue where posts that I make with URLs aren’t appearing on the forum “to the public” and require Moderator approval. Do new accounts need to wait a while until being able to pos links?

    Thank you!

    Hi @Teeth Brusher :)

    Sometimes new member posts that contain links are put in to a queue for approval by an anti-spam algorithm running on the site. Normally the posts are approved pretty quickly, but it means that it's rare for spammers to get through to the site. It should work ok for you now :D.

    I've tweaked the settings a bit more, as for some reason the anti-spam software has a problem with Russian and Chinese letters when too many are posted - I've upped the limit a lot so hopefully it should work ok now :D.

    I seem to have a problem with the loading time for this forum, it takes quite a while and it worked perfectly in the beginning. Is it just me?

    Hi Denisa, sorry you're having issues with the loading times. Does this happen on other sites, or only this one? I've had a look at the server and everything seems to be operating ok. We've got monitoring set up to check load times and it's reporting that times are loading as normal, so I wonder if it's something specific to your connection to our server?

    Ian, I'm sorry I couldn't get back to you sooner, I had some health issues. Since everything is fine on your end it must be something to do with my Internet connection. Thanks so much for checking, it must be me :)
