I have been a member since 2012 believe it or not. I never post topics or really comment on topics. I have started doing it now and its annoying waiting for a mod to confirm the comment. I really don't want to spam but If I went through 10+ W.I.P asking if there are any updates would that be classed as spam? Thanks.  :)

So far, the mods have been pretty good at approving comments pretty fast. Also you can only post 5 posts per day, but still dont spam the WIPs asking for updates, that is usually not a good thing to do.

Hi Leask,

I am sorry that despite being a member for so long, you are limited the same way as new member accounts. Maybe there is a way for me to exclude accounts which are over 3 months old. It will take me some time to implement it as a feature because I do not have much free time these days, but I will see what I can do.

The WIP posts would be considered spamming, yes. Please avoid doing that very often.

I am a new zombie player and ugx forum reader and quite disturbed by this, but I understand this has to be done and I even have to admit this is a good idea. But how long do you have to wait(average) to let a message get approved?

This totally depends on how many mods/admins are online. If i don't notice a new post, it might stay unapproved for a while. It won't take longer than 24 hours!
Again, depends on multiple things..

And btw Welcome to UGX, enjoy your stay here!!

I'd say based on what I've seen lately, on average it's within a few minutes. At the most, within an hour or two.

If you are in for the long term you'd get over it and if this is too much trouble for you then this probably isn't your thing anyway. I totally stand by the ruling.

I usually am online all through the day, and as soon as I get on, I go straight to the page to approve replies/topics. So it usually doesn't take too long to get approved.

Ain't so bad. no-one really cares what anyone have to say anyway. Delaying a post by an hour or so won't make that any different lol.

this is the topic i have been looking for, IMO i think it is a tad hard, unless obviously you try to post right away. I myself have been trying yo figure out why for the past week i could not send a PM to a friend. I believe this is a really awesome newcomer law, but i also believe it should be easier to find, like say automatically send it to an inbox/make them read it.

Well i think its not fair if you have donated to the site to keep it up your still treated as a noob and have to wait every day for a moderator to approve your posts until you hit 20 posts

I agree with this sentiment but I simply have not had time to rewrite the existing system to exclude donators from the post limitations. Maybe I'll have time now that I'm on summer break.

Good idea, I've added a link for this topic to the Welcome PM that gets sent to all new members.
