I thought I had joined Airheads 8 days ago, but apparently not. So I rejoined today, and this is a test post. All my posts from the last 8 days were flagged as, "awaiting moderation". So hopefully, my posts will now be permitted to appear not the forum.

If there's anything else I need to do at this point, someone please advise.

Thanks,

Joe Hall

I am in the same boat, a good opportunity for a test post after" awaiting moderation" on the last one.

I don't know the exact answer myself. However, I think the belief was that your first post would go in the General Discussion forum. You know, something like, "Hey ! I'm Nannuk, and I'm a new member in Greenland."

That would get "approved" for publication by me, the moderator of the General Discussion forum. Thereafter, having been approved once, you would forever be on the 'approved to post anything anywhere' list. Which, for clarity's sake is not a physical list, but rather an electronic list kept by the website software of "real" Airhead members.

In this way spam and other obnoxious ads are kept from posting on our forums. That is the intent. This because having your serious technical discussion peppered with Viagra ads can get REALLY annoying.

To clarify, I am not the only moderator, and my "super powers" are limited to the General Discussion and Technical forums. And my knowledge to give you a full and complete answer is limited to my experience on WordPress. 

Owning an old Airhead is easy.
Keeping an old Airhead running great is the true test.

Same issue here.  I know this is an old thread but I thought replying here might let me get started making posts.

From what I can see as a "Junior Moderator in Training" everyone who posted above is at "Approved Status".
