How long before your 1st post shows

Postby garryr » 2017/09/26 23:51:42

I see the notice about the first posts being held for moderation, and understand the reasons,
but it is not clear, how long before they even look at and decided to accept it or not ?

Thanks,

It depends. We have moderators in various sections of the world, but they may be busy. For example, I'm in the eastern part of the US, but haven't had a chance to look at the forum for a few hours. So there is no clear cut answer, it usually shouldn't be more than a few hours, but posts are manually approved by humans, so if all mods are busy, it may take a little longer.
New users should check the FAQ and Read Me First pages

Ok, thanks , in this case it didn't take long at all, less then a hour.
But understood, it could be longer, even a few hours.
Thanks
