    Moderator Approval

    Why in the hell does every forum I register to, need a damn moderator to approve my messages before the post is made public? Its annoying as hell, I just registered to a forum, and left for this damn reason.

    To prevent the dozens of spam accounts made here each day from being able to shill their cheap sports jerseys and fake designer handbags, and to stop people only here to troll before they can cause any drama. It's a minor inconvenience for new users in order to prevent the place from being constantly overrun with junk posts.

    Yup. It lasts a few days at worst and putting up with it is the least you can do to become an active member.

    When I joind the gaminformer.com forums back in '05 you had to have a minimum post-count, hours logged and pages viewed. Each of wich numbered in the thousands.

    As much as you might hate it, these anti-spammer/advertizer measures do wonders at maintaining a community.

    That's a shame. I only joined Destructoid for the free ipads nude Miley Cyrus Nigerian contests.

    That's how they lure everybody here. But once you join it's nothing but dicks and bad rape jokes until you either die or go insane. Or leave, I guess, but who would want to leave this place?

    Tried to cheer a rape victim up in work by telling a few jokes but she got all defensive and started going crazy...

    When I tried to apologise and calm her down though it just seemed to make things worse and by the end she was hysterical...

    In hindsight "it was a joke not a dick, don't take it so hard" we're probably not the best choice of words..

    You're a good friend, Phil. I know that meant a lot to her while she was in victim therapy.

    It's to make sure shitty-smelling assholes don't ruin this place for everyone. I can dig.

    And dicks and bad rape jokes? Guess I'll die happy then.

    Don't fret about it here, you have it for about 10-15 posts then you have no approval needed. Just don't spam to get your postcount up

    Don't think the op is coming back. If they'd read the Forum Rules and New Users posting guide that they were told to read during registration, they would have the answer anyway.

    Why doesn't everyone immediately treat me as a regular on a site I've only just made my account on? It's unfair!
