  • A fair number of my posts are getting blocked with an "Unapproved" notification

    Is there anything in particular I'm doing that triggers that? Too many HTML links? Something else? It's very irritating to not know what causes it.

    I have never been able to identify a pattern, although longer posts seem a bit more likely to get auto-moderated than shorter ones.

    Maybe 1 post in 3 has been unapproved recently. Michael is doing a good job of getting the posts unblocked quickly but it's got to be a pain for him as well as for us.

      Yeah I wish I had an answer myself... The anti-spam plugin was made worse by vBulletin 5 and with Akismet not being open-source, etc, not sure of all the different triggers. It's been a pain lately but yeah for the 15~16 hours I work a day, I try to check for any moderated stuff at least once an hour.

        It's a shame the anti-spam plugin can't figure out that after 9 years I'm not likely to wake up one morning and decide to become a spammer....

          Would be nice if the forum software at least had a manual whitelist for certain people, then at least Michael could add you manually. =c

            The phoronix bot itself that posts our articles from the main site into the forums even gets moderated as spam at least once a week.... :/

              Yikes. Sorry to hear that. I thought I had problems with it. That's crazy.

                So why do you use this crap named vBulletin at all?

                    Every single one of my posts needs to go through approval. Is this a spam filter thing, or just a new user thing?
