To be honest I just click the post not read button every time I come. I dont really browse by subsection, so I never noticed it. But I'll keep more of an eye on it now.

Eunoia, there should be no reason the News account posts off topic.  We manually move news posts into corresponding forums that either fit the headline or if there isn't a forum for the headline topic, we move it into the news/general section or the lounge.

There are a lot of topics in off-topic that probably shouldn't be, I agree. But It is at the top and that's where most people click and where the most responses will be.

 

I'm guilty of this. Sorry =/

Hm, thanks for pointing this out. When I post, I'll definitely try to consciously post things to their corresponding forum topics

To be honest, i've tried posting in a few other sub-forums, everytime I go to do it is says something about needing a moderator to approve the post first.  Then either they don't see they need to be approved, or they just deny all of them and I never get the e-mails.

Hi Dorkstar,


This definitely isn't intended functionality.  Where are you seeing this and what is the message you're getting?  Can you copy/paste it here?

Thanks

I've gotten the same thing when I tried to post under the processors subcategory when I saw a leak of information about Intel's Haswell line on another article and Tried to post it, I figured it required moderator approval just so community members don't accidentally post information on things HotHardware could be posting on?

What Osunday is right on from what I've experienced.  The processor forum is moderated, and won't allow you to post anything in there without approval from a moderator.  I'm fairly certain there is a few others out there as well.  It's hard to tell because I typically am responding to an article, and not paying attention to what forum it's in. 

  However, if you post a reply from the article itself the reply works fine.  If you attempt to post a reply via the forum, it says it needs to be approved.

Wow, I posted a link and the moderation thinger didn't eat my post! Stick out tongue

(Save your posts before clicking "Post", soooo frustrating to type out a long post and know that it's gone into the ether, never to return.)

Just got the "Post Pending Moderation" when replying to this thread : http://hothardware.com/cs/forums/p/65067/443264.aspx#443264.  This one makes no sense, it's not in the processor sub-forum, and I've already replied through the forums on this particular post.

Ok, I think on i'm to something here.

I posted in : http://hothardware.com/cs/forums/p/65072/443304.aspx#443304

The first time I quoted rapid1 and it gave me the post pending moderation message.  I went back and erased the quote portion of the message, and it allowed me to post.

Yes, I need to turn back some of the moderation settings it seems.  Will look at this shortly.

OK, I've gone ahead and relaxed the spam settings a bit but tightened up in other areas.  See if this helps.

I seem to be getting it every time I use the quote feature now.  If I don't quote someone, it seems to work every time.

I figured out the issue.  It's not the quoting, or anything related to anything we are doing.  It's the ad's that are created after we submit our initial post.  You know, the ones that pick words in our sentences to hyperlink to some website "relevant" to that keyword.

  I simply went through a message I quoted earlier and removed the hyperlinks today and it allowed me to post.

It doesn't happen to me at all, anytime.

Probably because you hold the power of a demi god, AKA Moderator.

OK, I've turned off the duplicate post block but set the dupe post wait time to 2 minutes.  Hopefully this helps.

Thank you for all of your attention towards solving this for those that are affected by it.

Nope, the Admins are the ones with the real power around here.
