[Resolved] Forum account moderated

    Hi,
    My wordpress forum account is currently being moderated because of this:
    http://wordpress.org/support/topic/wordpress-support-forum-account-blocked?replies=7
    Does anyone know how long my account will remain under moderation as it’s very annoying having your responses being displayed only hours after posting them.

    Am I better off creating another account?

    I would rather not as my current one is 3 years old.

    I would also like to recommend a forum category be introduced specifically for this forum , pertaining to the forum itself as not much can be found on the subject via internet searches and surely many experience the same or similar issues regarding the wordpress forum itself.

    Am I better off creating another account?

    As long as you keep using more than 1 account on the forum it’s likely to be picked up by the forum’s spam protector, because it’s a common tactic people use for sock puppetry.

    Hi Andrew, thanks for your response.

    I only use one account now, and have done so since I reported the issue and it was suggested to only use one account.

    With reference to me making another account to resolve the issue, I have a dynamic ip, so if I were say to clear my browser cache and cookies then restart my router be assigned another ip from my ISP my guess is the spam filter would prob not know thereby resolving my issue.

    Saying that though it’s not the optimal solution, I would far rather have my current account functioning correctly once again.

    That account is not under mod watch currently, it’s the other ones.

    I think it was only recently changed then as my posts were not being shown at the time I reported the issue.

    Anyway, now that it’s clear, thank you for responding and confirming the status as it was driving me mad 😉

    I just saw your post here: http://wordpress.org/support/topic/my-wordpressorg-blog-can-not-be-found-in-bing-search-engine?replies=5&view=all&message=unspammed-normal

    It actually got picked up by the spam protector even though you weren’t being mod watched. Those things happen and it’s just an accident, it’s not necessarily related to anything that you did.

    Lol- thx
    Also that recommendation about a support thread for the support forum would be nice for when people like us get tagged for spam by the filter or any forum specific issues users may have.

    Thanks for your help, I will mark the thread as resolved – take care
