How long will I be moderated

Sucks having your responses buried in the thread by the time they are approved.

Sucks worse to have a forum polluted with spam. Manual approval of the first few posts of new users is a necessary evil, but serves the greater good.

Stay safe,

Welcome to the forum. There are some really nice people, here. We try to have a peaceful place to exchange ideas. I hope you will enjoy being with us.

Well understood. If you have any insight into the duration I would appreciate it.

edit: NVM, I am no longer moderated. I am a big boy now.

If anyone else is stuck like this, the best thing to do is probably message a moderator and just ask about it.

A partial workaround might be to quote some of the points you are replying to, like I have done here.

Too bad reddit is such a pit of scum and villainy, as the multithread format would work well for knife discussions. I wonder if there is any other multi threaded discussion format.

I don't know if they have a standard amount of posts moderated, in my case it was 2. :)

We monitor the posts of new users to confirm that they are contributing genuine content that is relevant to the goals of the forum before we let them run free. We also do that in addition to our other duties here at Spyderco and during reasonable hours of the day.

I sat down at my desk 30 minutes ago and I'm barely into my second cup of coffee... I've already banned about a half-dozen would-be spammers and still counting...

The price of freedom is eternal vigilance...

Thank you for your patience and understanding.

Stay safe,

Mike

Wow. Sounds like the spammers are relentless.
Thanx for keeping them at bay!

You know now that you mention it, it's been awhile since I've logged in and seen the forum polluted with spam. I guess that didn't happen by accident, thanks Mike! :D
