I have noticed that my posts take 2-3 days to post. On the other hand, multiple worthless, offensive posts and entire threads attacking other members such as "X member should get a four wheeler" post almost immediately. It appears that the forum moderator has a certain preference for bullshit. Not sure if/when this post will show on the board, but I've had it. This is my last post. If people seek useful information information, there are several other, much better moderated forums.
batman is correct, after you have been here awhile and a regular poster you get placed in "post moderation" which means your posts
appear instantly subject to final approval. Ive had a couple posts removed after they were online recently.
hang in there...
I have been in this forum about six years. I have not found any rhyme or reason why posts of a particular person's posts are moderated. Sometimes they give me real time posts, sometimes they take it away. It looks like I have it now.
I have an idea that they may take real time posts away if others complain about you. Or, that it maybe when you are involved in a ruckus, like I have been doing lately. But, they gave me this real time when I was at it with TomZ. I, and others have posted some offensive posts which have been allowed. In fact, Danny a few times called me n**gr. Some of my innocent posts have been removed.
I think that because the moderators are Russian, they do not follow the same logic as we do. It doesn't mean we are better. It just means we are all different, and have different tolerances.
i had a post removed as it dealt with a technical issue involving IP addresses not related to subject matter and because it could be potentially "disruptive"
administratively. fine by me, their forum-their rules and I was indeed offering up things i agree now not to divulge
I have been a forum member for years and have posted very little, even though I have a wealth of information, because of all the BS. It seems that so many here just want to criticize others and do not want to contribute in any way to an exchange of information to make other's experiences abroad better. The only problem that I have with the moderators is that they allow the constant criticism of others, which wastes about 90% of the cyberspace this forum uses. I have no problem with a waiting time for moderator's approval.
What this forum needs to do, is to track down everyone’s IP address and eliminate the bogus multi profilers.
Today, several old members returned, along with danny/poopy, scolding members that fight?? How many people would be surprised to know,,, that almost half of the profiles are from the same person???
“Madusa/poopy/danny42/granny/danny41/flogdadog/pooten/moisty/ dansing,blobby, salon, Irina1, dansmart, TomZ, Daniel Green”
This list is not even complete, it’s missing the oldest and the newest of his extra profiles!
Simply removing his main profile does not work,,,, they tried several times,,, he just returns with several more.
It was around 10 or so months ago that I returned to this forum, specifically regarding the MH17 incident as I recall, and to enjoy a 'chinwag' with an old buddy or few.
These days, after I set up for the morning and with my brewed coffee by my side, I might log in, this morning as an example, and all I read is the same old shit, he said she said, name calling, pigs on a road in Crimea, he hasn't been to Ukraine for X amount of years, another one has failed with every Ukrainian woman he has ever tried, TomZ has got a bigger dick than the rest of you put together, even down to me being a failure semi-retired and living the life on a remote Pacific island.
I'm not referring to any of you in particular, well I'll make an exception referring to TomZ, the lot of you ... If you've got nothing constructive to say then shut the fuck up and leave this forum a more user friendly place for those that have.
