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.

Ah yes, it's gone now.

@C.R.A., send Joe an email requesting a name change. People used to be able to change it themselves, but we had people abuse it.

@C.R.A. I prefer not to do it unless it's for a good reason, but send me an email and I'll see what I can do.

I stopped people from being able to do it themselves because people were swapping usernames and it got confusing (and annoying).

@Ahhh Girl I edited your message to obfuscate my email address (which I'd rather wasn't posted here; I get spam).

@Ahhh Girl is it possible for new posters to post twice, even before their first post has been approved? If so @and I loved her yesterday could maybe post in one of the more prominent threads and explain where their first post was, so you could find it?

Love one another.

A new member can post multiple times before any of their posts are approved. Each one of the new posts from that person would have to be approved.

I found and I loved her yesterday's post in the upcoming on TV thread. I looked in that poster's profile. They have only made that one post.

What I meant is that whoever posted the post that you can't find could post again in a different thread and, in that post, tell you where that other post is so you could find and approve it. I may have been mistaken as to the identity of the poster (sorry) and I don't even know if it's possible...

It was just a thought I had. Sorry if I'm confusing. paul-mccartney-facepalm_gif

I was going through every unread thread I had and scouring every new post to see if I could find the ones under moderation.

Now all I have to do is look a the list of new members

new.JPGImage Enlarger

and see which one of them has posted.

50-1.JPGImage Enlarger

I see if they have a number in the "posts" line, then click on "topics posted in" and find out where the new posts are.

Such a simple solution. Why didn't I think of it before?a-hard-days-night-ringo-7paul-mccartney-facepalm_gif
