Do all new users have to wait for 1st post to be authorised?

#1 Post by chmaine » Tue Mar 16, 2010 11:09 am

As I have just posted a new code in the free films section, but once submitted it says the post has to be authorised.

But now another user has just posted the same code after me I believe =/

Yes. It was introduced as a spam blocker and has been helpful ever since. That's why we recommend writing the first post in "Introduce Yourself" and not to wait until you have found a code, as first posts can be stuck in limbo for hours, until we check - the moderators do not get an alert about them.
