Sorry to mention it on here but I know there's some overlap.
I joined the BLW forums a couple of nights ago and made a post in the introduction forum. I got a message saying that it needed to be approved before it would appear. 24 hours later I made another post in the new to BLW forum and got the same message. Neither message has yet appeared.
Now I know the admin might be very busy so not got around to approving them yet, but I'm worried I'm getting the message in error. I know some forums require the first few posts from new members to be approved to check that they're genuine, but there's no mention of this on there. There is also quite a lot of spam on there, which presumably hasn't been approved by the moderators. Also there don't seem to be any introductory posts from new members since 2nd June, so I'm wondering if we're all getting filtered out.
Has anyone else joined recently and had problems or am I blackballed?
oh i'm so sorry, dita, you've not been blackballed, the site's servers were hacked a few days ago and everhting's gone to hell in a handbasket tbh. i can't even log in at the moment (which is why i don't have your message yet, it stays in your sent box until it's picked up) but i'll get onto it as soon as tech sends me a new log in. many apologies.
No worries, I'll try again in a few days. It just looks like such a nice community, plus I thought you would want to know about the problems. Hope you manage to get it sorted out soon (and glad to hear I'm not blackballed ).
