Hello? Where are my posts?

Hi. I submitted at least two posts 3 or 4 days ago, and I don't see them anywhere. I realize that this board has a moderation process, but with all due respect, for posts to take 3+ days to show up seems excessive to me. Furthermore, there is no acknowledgement of my posts--even as "pending"--in my User Control Panel, so I don't know if they've even gone through (despite getting a message that my posts "were successfully submitted" when I originally posted them).

Two of the posts were very lengthy, and they took me a fair amount of time to write. In one I was seeking help with a ROM problem, and in another post I was trying to help somebody else.

Can an Admin please look in to this? BTW, I see several places around the board where it says "Contact an administrator to report a problem", but I cannot find ANY links and/or methods to contact Admins. Also, there is nothing about either concern in the F.A.Q.

Thanks for your attention.

I can't (won't) speak for anyone other than myself, however, moderators do things as time permits. Personally, I was away for several days and checked pending posts only recently. Truth be told there are seldom life and death emergencies on these forums though we often feel like that when we post a question.

The delay is only imposed upon new users to protect the board. Once you pass the predefined threshold your posts are immediately made public without a review. I'm sure we all appreciate your understanding.
