Hey guys,

Just joined the site last yesterday and wrote a massive post asking for advice on my 1st new rc car getting back into the hobby in the nitro forum, spent about 30 min typing it up and it still has shown up

What gives?

Was hoping to join the community but it feels like a disappointing start

Did you have any links in your post? I know new members can't post links or pics for a certain number of post. If you didn't have either im not sure why it didn't work but im sure someone with some more info will chime in.

I'm new at being a mod, but I think if your post count is low, your thread needs to be approved. I know from experience that a mod is not sent a message or anything when a thread needs approval, they have to look all the time under their setting and manually look. I would contact a mod from the area you posted and ask if that is the case.

Correct RoadRash, a new members first post, most of the time but not all, need to be approved by a mod. I'm not sure exactly who gets the notification of a new members first post, I know it's not me.

You can PM Marcos.J or Matt M. about it. Just remember that all of us volunteer to do this and have a normal life just like everyone else.

It can be a bit of a pain for new members but it has had a HUGE affect on the amount of spam bots that get in, making RCTech much better for everyone.

Thanks guys, i understand the reason for the mod auth, just a shame after spending so long i'm not going to bother again if its possible it will just get deleted!

Especially as a duplicate post!! Sure i was asking for advice but it was specific to my situation (sure there is a lot in other threads which i have read) but i also had a pic of my current car and a story about getting back into RC.

Its not like the post was "I can haz rc cars, want to buy where can it get buy?"

Anyway maybe best to go lurker status

My advice is to never compose your posts in the browser - and that goes for any forum, not just this one. That way you can save your work in progress and never lose it again. I've learned this the hard way too many times.
