    I have a thread in the space engineers modding section and edited the original post to reflect I had solved an issue with info to help others ..... 5 hours ago. Why does it take sooo long for my posts to be approved?

    I guess because there is almost no one to approve them. I'm not even sure if we have more than two mods.

    I just noticed there is no "report" button like most other forums have. I guess that's why they manually approve posts from all users?
    Seems a bit counter productive to not use some anti spam filters and place a report button on each post so the community could help get rid of spam, would at the very least reduce their work load and make posting on here much less painful for us. Just my thoughts.

    I think the first six posts need to get approved to avoid spammers. You should be good now.
    EDIT: as for the report button, it would get abused. A lot.
    BTW, is this the thread you were talking about? https://forums.keenswh.com/post/solved-could-really-use-some-help-getting-mwmbuilder-to-work-7318706?pid=1286392078#post1286392078
    it didn't disappear, it probably just went to the next page.

    Yes I think you are correct as the last post I made went through right away.
    Yes and no. It is the thread and it did indeed vanish until approved because I edited the first post and title I'm guessing. All good now though and thanks for the response :)

    that's one of not more than two :)

    also, when are we getting better software?

    and Dampir, the reason they need to manually approve was that before we were constantly spammed with well... spam. it was quite bad.

    Meow :cool:. Not all the mods write on the forum too much but they are there... watching from the shadows... It's just sometimes we get a backlog of posts to approve so a new poster may not get approved for some hours.
