Why am I getting this message after I posted a comment to the "Paul's Drumming on "Dear Prudence" topic in the "Albums" section --

Your post is awaiting moderation in the topic Paul's drumming on "Dear Prudence" 

???

Thanks.

I got two messages saying two post were mellow and awaiting the mods attention. What is a mellow post? Aside from being chilled out and relaxed.

A post about Kenny G perhaps?

Mellow is the title Joe used, at my suggestion, for Beatles in the Blood's Heal/Hurt game after he split it from the Rockers version while moving them all to their own sub-forum yesterday. You do have two posts in the section that was split off and retitled, though I don't know why they'd be awaiting the mods attention – unless the messages popped up while Joe was working on it. I know I got a whole bunch of messages telling me a Mellow post had been moved.

Joe had mentioned in a different thread that certain triggers will cause a post to go into 'Awaiting Moderation" status. It has nothing to do (99.99999% of the time) with the individual who posted, but rather the content. If a post contains multiple links, questionable links (not necessarily unsafe) or web photos that contain hyperlinks; certain anti spam triggers kick in. There may be other triggers, but these are the ones that happen most often.

When I log in, I look for these and fix 'em when I see 'em. Thanks for your patience!

Thanks for the answers mja and zig. No idea there was a thread called mellow and therefore it intruiged me that a post was mellow and blocked.

Yeah, thanks! I wondered about that too, but just assumed it meant that my posts had been moved to that new thread and didn't give a second thought.
