I created my account March last year. Maybe 2 of my posts have actually been posted. I saw a post from last year that STILL says waiting for admin approval. I posted a few weeks ago a new topic just to have another user days later post the exact same topic. Did my topic post? Nope. Did theirs? Of course! Wtf is up with this forum??? Let's see if this topic actually posts...

I see the FA is online now, probably with an answer to your question.
I can't complain but sometimes I still do.

Wink Methinks FA picks on certain people if they use avatars that even slightly resemble him...

I think that where you post and what you post is dependent upon the number of posts you've made (I see you only have 8).  The Admin is trying to prevent spammers.

^^^Actually, I believe that is correct and if I remember, FA generally works with somewhere between 5-10 posts before granting the next level of access...so post MORE. Talk to us. We're lonely.

Actually, I believe that is not always correct.

Back during the holidays I noticed that a couple of people were posting here who had joined just an hour or in some cases, minutes earlier and with one or two posts to their credit.

I think it's either just carelessness, or randomness or prejudice against certain usernames or possibly some kind of unexplainable logic on his part.

All consistent with the inconsistency and unequally applied rules and standards here.


Great news guys.... With the Air Hawk, flat balls are no longer a problem!!!

Yeah, I'm not totally sure either.  It's been 13 years or so since my post count was 8.  And at this age, I can barely remember yesterday.
