    After being automatically moderated immediately after registering, and reading the Nazi ass tactics in this forum, I am out, sorry guys, best of luck to the good people in here. This is why forums are dying.

    The owners of this forum activated moderation for new accounts probably to do with all the spam accounts that used to plague this forum. Other forums do the same.

    But what kind of moderation are we talking about?

    New users' first posts are 'moderated', meaning invisible to everyone but themselves until staff approve them (up to a couple hours, pretty much everything that is not spambots is approved). It's more sensitive with a couple sections.

    How many posts?

    I would understand a couple of post to protect the community against bots.

    no idea, I should really look it up as I am still unfamiliar with xenforo

    from what I see for the Registered User premissions, the allow setting is no moderation if its set to never the posts will be moderated. So I really don't get why some users are getting moderated.

    I looked in node premissions for each forum in the registered user group and no user should be moderated in that user group, very odd.

    The overwhelming majority of moderated posts/false positives happen in the ps1 and x360ce sections for some reason. Nothing particularly looks to trigger moderation other than account age.

    Yeah but those are the only sections pulling new users to the forums.
    I trust you guys can handle it, maybe keep a more watchful eye on those sections and a way to explain new users about the moderation so they don't run because of it.

    I understand the need for moderation of new users, but I only registered recently and had no problems.

    Anyone know what his was about?
