So, I'm starting a new topic - Awaiting Moderation - every time you make a comment in the Things We Said Today section - you can make a quick post here whilst you are "Awaiting Moderation" For example

"I am awaiting moderation for a comment I've submitted regarding The White Album ."

this way it won't feel so lonely.

Anyone else?

Back last may, everyone got affected with moderation sickness. That pandemic inspired the Beatles bible back up forum.

You look more like it than I do. 

Sorry, I just eye-caught your awesome signature and my Beatley-brain warped it. I think it's a good idea. Can one of the mods explain to me why moderation is necessary? 

I'm awaiting moderation on my comment on "For You Blue ", which is song of the day today. I just listened to it for the first time, and found it lovely, and then listened to Dhani's version, and was flipped out by how much he sounds like George, and other things to that effect. 

 

EDIT: I see that several new posts appeared while I was very slowly typing mine. Correction: I type fast, but I write slow. Anyway, I was talking to @robert.

When you submit a comment into the Things We Said Today section - after you submit, this is the message you get "Your comment is awaiting moderation." - and then at some point it shows up - so right now I am "awaiting moderation" for a comment I submitted on The White Album ".

I assume one of the site moderators looks at each of those comments and decides whether or not to post it - which I totally get and understand - but I started this topic just for fun while posters wait.

Clear as mud?

Moderation happens in every section. It depends on the post in question. Mods will moderate posts they think is questionable.

There must be a glitch in the system. The mods don't have any notifications that any posts are in moderation status.

Who all has something in moderation status?

I'll check on Silly Girl's post now.

And I think that's cool - I certainly wasn't complaining - just creating a new forum where those of us Awaiting Moderation can hang together. Like me and Silly Girl are - in fact we are quickly becoming besties

Double posting here...

The way Joe has things set up now, only first posts by new users go into moderation unless a mod sees something that needs to be restricted (put in moderation) until it is reviewed by the other mods. All existing member's posts should go through easy-breezy.

....now off to check on SG's post.

Oh, hold the presses. Are you talking about putting posts on the main web pages and not the forum?

Yeah, that's totally different. Only Joe handles those.

I dont receive any notifications that posts are awaiting to be approved in the 'Things We Said Today ' section. @Ahhh Girl, @Zig, do either of you or is it only @Joe who deals with that side of things?

Oh, ahhh girl has posted above. Ignore me.

I'm pretty sure that every post submitted to the "Things We Said Today " is held for moderation - in my five years as a member of this site of every one of mine has - and the message you get back is that your comment is Awaiting Moderation - maybe it's just Joe who looks at them - which is completely fine - but I'm fairly sure that's the way it works.

@robert, did you make your post/comment on https://www.beatlesbible.com/a.....ite-album/ ?

and SG you made your comment on https://www.beatlesbible.com/s.....-you-blue/ ?

When you make posts to those pages, Joe has to read and approve them. Those comments end up on the home page in the Things We Said Today box.

Joe gets to them as soon as he can in between his job and family responsibilities.

Do you have to be signed in to post a comment? If not it may be Joe's way of keeping an eye on what is happening over there.

Still not getting the point of this thread, not that i have a problem with it.

 

Edit: Had a look and saw that you just post your email and a name so i guess if it goes into waiting for approval, probably by default, and Joe has to approve them by himself. I did wonder what he did with his spare time.

it's all good. I'm happy my little topic has generated so much activity already - as I have said - I'm not complaining and I totally get why Joe reviews all those comments - this is just a silly little topic - what is funny is that Silly Girl gets it - 'cause she's Awaiting Moderation just like I am! too funny.

So mods only can do mod stuff on the forum and not on the rest of the site?

everybody's comments in the Things We Said Today section goes into Awaiting Moderation - go post there and you'll see. I know Joe has to get to each one of them - did it sound like I was complaining? Cause I swear I wasn't. But I'm feeling a bit piled on to right now.

Suppose so, i never even gave thought to the comments on the main site. I would be happy to do that to but it may be a site default setting - or maybe Joe likes it that way.

No one is "piling" on anyone and i know it wasnt a complaint. I honestly had no idea that posts over there had to be waited for Joe's approval and my "you" in the above quoted post ("Do you have to be signed in to post a comment...") was a plural you not a singular you. Just trying to figure out what was being posted about and if there was something we mods were missing.

Apologies if it came off any other way.apple01

No, I didn't get the vibe that you were complaining. No worries there. I was just terribly afraid that we mods were missing something and therefore letting all of you down. I'm glad we got it all figured out.

You can be logged into your BB account when you post something on the main pages. It will give you a notice that you are posting as _(your username)_. Or you could post using a made up name and an email if you don't want people to know it is you posting on the main site.

That is correct, @Starr Shine?. Zig, mmm, and I cannot make any changes or do any post approvals on the main site pages. We are forum mods.

This has been a fascinating conversation!
