Post moderation a bit excessive?

Hi,

As a recent owner of an old Merc, I was hoping to have great use of the forum. However, the issue I seek assistance with has been sitting in moderation for four days. Is this normal? Or are my posts being thoroughly reviewed because I'm new? Otherwise, this sorta limits the use of the forum...

Best regards.

It's not normal... probably a thing because you are new. Has your post been approved yet?

Is this a not being able to attach pictures related problem? "They" used to stop you from posting pictures immediately...

You'd be jealous: It is long and straight and doesn't have any gnarly ugly bits on it at all!

It is a thing of beauty.

I'd say its a fluke. I bet Jim will straighten it out. Let me apologize for the forum on this. (I have absolutely no authority to speak for the forum but do so as one of the old farts around here!)

To the OP: Sorry to hear about the delay and I hope the moderators have now provided you access.

To the rest of you clowns: Could we please go back to discussing important things, like if the forum clock is correctly set? Geez.

Sorry, forgot to return to this thread, a day or two after I made the post it was up (all in all almost a week...). We'll have to wait and see see how my next thread goes
