I posted an autographed book in the thread I have been using and it hasn't shown up yet. I went to see if I forgot to hit the reply button and my post is there, but it is marked with the above message.

I used my normal format. All I have is the name of the book and the author and a picture of the book cover and the signature.

The only thing I can figure is that the book is by Robin Roberts and the title of the book refers to the nickname of the 1950 Phillies team. Could that somehow be offensive?

My main point in sharing this is that we are a small enough community of active participants already and we seem to be pretty well behaved. Do we really need to be so restrictive and make it unnecessarily difficult for people to participate in the forums?

It seems like a lot of people are getting it, and it’s turning a lot of people off…not sure we can afford to turn people off here, as low as membership is already…not sure what can be done about it…

I posted an update in my Astros autograph thread that gave me the same message and it still hasn't been approved. I'm not sure what the point of updating it here would be if it will take days for it to activate.

It's not some kind of conspiracy to monitor peoples speech, a mod is just fiddling with the board's settings behind the scenes and has it set janky.

I don't think it is a conspiracy theory at all and that certainly wasn't my intent, but MrMet and Therion are raising the same concerns that I have.

I don't think it's a good function if it is annoying people at a site where we need to be encouraging people to participate.

If for whatever reason, the software is necessary and we do need moderators to approve messages, then take whatever steps are necessary for moderators to actually approve the messages. It shouldn't take days.

This happened to me several weeks back, but it seemed to have stopped, at least for me. Sounds like its back again, but I have not been affected yet. I think I recall it had to do with images being loaded.

We are in total agreement, it does suck.

If you guys all decide to jump ship to a board that doesn't feel the need to mess with things to the point that it irritates the members who were here LONG before the new ownership took over, could you please let me know where you're going so I can join? (y) :)

Just look at the sports card site trading card central. The owner hasn't posted or done anything with the site in about 1 years.

I mentioned I added a image scanner add on that would check for inappropriate pics like chicks in bikinis. It wasn't working the way I wanted it to as it would moderate normal images of cards. I tried tweaking it to see if it would start allowing card pics, but it never worked right. So 2 days ago(I think it was 2 days ago), I shut it off. So you shouldn't be getting anymore of those approval issues again.

Thank you very much. I appreciate the update.
