It’s just because I was a new member, they have to manually approve the first few posts from someone who’s just signed up.The mods didn't approve your original replies?!?!?!?!
I think you must be confusing this forum with some other one(s). Never heard of this happening here--but I've only been around for 20 yrs give or take on this site. New owners might have changed something but....between this and your rather vague 'criteria' to begin with, well...you might just be here to play, neh?
