Recently I was contacted via PM by a new forum member who is having trouble making his first public forum post. And is gungho to contribute to the forum.
Writing he can not find anything about the process in TOS or other area of the forum. But his new post are either not appearing or in some other way blocked. This is maybe the third time I have been contacted by new members about what happens after requesting to join, and when their post will appear. I forget the process.
It seems people can register, they can send a PM messages, but there is a process delay until their public post will appear posted to the forum.
I seem to recall [maybe incorrectly] that the first 5 or so post by a new member will not appear until after they have been moderated and approved by Peder. If they have proved they are not a trouble-making spammer, and they are here to contribute to discussion of tenkara fishing any new post will immediately be posted to the forum.
Is that correct?
If not. What is the process new members go through from joining to having their first public post appear on the forum?
If the process is documented here, then maybe new members can more easily find it. And know what to expect.
