How to find a moderator

    I've noticed that quite a few people have posted threads in the past asking which moderators are online and making requests which could be dealt with more quickly by sending a PM to a mod directly.

    To find a a moderator, scroll to the bottom of the page and look just above the photo gallery link. Click on 'View Forum Leaders' as shown in the red box below.

    This will then take you to the page which displays the usernames of the site moderators and the site administrator. Any moderators that are online will have a green dot next to their username. If the dot is grey, they are offline. You can send a PM to a moderator or the admin by clicking on 'Send PM' on the right-hand side, as shown in the red box.

    Hopefully this should make things easier for new members.

    I joined 2 days ago and made a post which has still not been approved. There was nothing controversial about the post. I cannot find a way to contact anybody about this. 25 posts before one is allowed to send a PM? Ludicrous.

    Thank you and goodbye.

    The first post on this thread tells you how to find a moderator. Yes, it is 25 posts before you can access pm facilities but you are still able to post on a moderator's wall if you have a problem.

    The spam filter may seem a little strict to some but it sure does filter out real nasties before members get to see it, for that I'm grateful.

    I think they do not exist as I joined the forums yesterday and am still awaiting two threads to be vetted by a 'moderator?' and appear on the site. Absolutely ridiculous wait.

    Really encourages newbies to hang around here.

    Unfortunately the mods are just volunteers, there aren't many of them and on odd occasions they are all just busy elsewhere

    With the thinly veiled aggression we've had around these parts recently, I should think they are VERY busy elsewhere :rolleyes:.

    I see your post has now been approved by one of the other mods but when newbies post pictures or links then their posts/threads are likely to be held up until someone has time to approve them. Sorry we've all been a bit busy recently.

    Huh, I had no idea, things were even moderated before they got posted, I've never had an issue so far, but it's good to know in-case I can't post immediately in future.

    That would be to be sure you haven't posted any we never heard of, right?

    If you would prefer we dispense with the filtering software which prevents endless spam, most of which are not even in English or consists of nothing but gibberish, so we have no time to do anything other than delete it all till the next day, I am sure there are sites where you won't have to wait quite so long.
