    I just joined this forum yesterday and tried making my first post. I was asking for comments/recommendations between 2 tele's. The post has been sitting for 18 hours as :Awaiting Moderation Approval". Does this usually take this long? Should I try reposting that post??

    I'm not sure what that means, maybe try posting comments in other threads before starting your own thread?
    I've certainly seen threads where someone joined up just to ask a question, but the problem with bots starting threads sometimes taking over the forum where almost every new post is a bot might lead the mods to hold new threads by new members who have never shown signs of being actual people, as opposed to bots- or computer generated new thread posts.

    If you are an actual human Tele player; Welcome!

    this is the thread status of that first post:

    Thread Status:

    Awaiting moderation before being displayed publicly.


    Just seems 18 hrs is a long time for moderation.

    It's normal in my experience. It took at least a day for my first post to show up. By then it was kinda outdated. Once that first one goes through you'll be good.

    And welcome!

    I don't recall having any problems when I first started posting. But I didn't start off with a new thread. Although I've seen many threads started by new people in the Welcome Wagon. Maybe it just works on that one?

    Right, good point, maybe posting in the Welcome Wagon and saying a bit about yourself would get you out of that status, but then this thread is up and running.

    The mods are all AFAIK volunteers, and when bots hit they can bury the volunteers and pretty nearly shut down the whole forum.
    Lots of sites have some sort of "prove you're not a bot" firewall...

    I did not have to wait, but my first posts were comments on existing threads. Other forums use the delay for moderation, so it's pretty normal. The mods have a lot to do. Welcome. It's worth the short wait!

    Hi,

    I am a newby myself, and I can’t figure out how to make a new post. I can only reply!(at least looks like it)

    I would like to put up a post concerning a Tokai telecaster.
    (In Tokai Club) but I have no clue how.

    Can you help me out?

    Thanks Ahead!!
