    Do new threads post instantly, or do they need approval/delay?

    Alright. So I guess if a thread doesn't show up, it must be a glitch.

    Threads in the w8 forum and serious discussion forum are moderated / placed in a moderation queue and will stay there until they are approved / deleted.

    New threads in the MDL Projects and Applications forum can be only created by our approved developers.

    Anything else has no restriction and will post instantly.

    Actually, I don't know if phailyoor is talking about the Windows 8 section or not, I've had a problem recently.

    First time was posting in one of Josh Cells threads, then one of Alphawaves's, but they never posted and I had to write them up again. May be off subject here but thought I'd add that in case it's what's being talked about haha.

    Really, please approve it more quickly, it is taking at least 3 hours to approve something.

    It's not up to 'us', it's due to different time zones. And everybody needs to sleep. Scientists actually don't know why humans really need to sleep, but it's a fact, lol.

    If you want to get your things approved quickly then post it at 7-10 am or even better at 9-11 pm GMT (UTC).

    Better wait some hours for the topic approval then see hundreds of topics like "Active W8 rtm.. how?!?".. :p
    If these topics actually exist would your topic jump to page 2 or 3 quickly and nobody sees it. :D

    3 hours? This is way too long. I think that 60 seconds even aren't acceptable. Can you live with 30 seconds?
    Just give me two hours, I need to quit my job, reject all friends, stop eating and sleeping. What else should I be living for?

    Without irony: We're all doing this in our free time. If you're willing to pay the team a monthly salary enough for living, I will ensure that threads are approved < 1 min. We have free time, friends, work, relationship etc. I consider 3 hours a good or at least acceptable time. What is so important here that the world can't wait three hours for it?

    Man,

    you guys are doing excellent job (except on Windows 8 section, it become unreadable and full on useless flooding posts lol :p)
    Mdl is the best forum ever, in my opinion all serious sections must need thread approval to guarantee right and legit info well organized!

    Keep going Masters, some members are too young and silly to understand the real life point... in fact if they have a life :confused:
