I agree. It's incredibly annoying to want to post something immediately that would completely solve the problem and change people's outlook on the thread, but instead I have to wait 8+ hours for a moderator to hit a button. And then, I make myself look like a moron because the original response I gave is outdated! Oh well, Hopefully it goes away soon.

It does go away but yes, it's very annoying! I understand why though... They want to make sure they don't get retards posting BS junk on here, attempts to fraud people, things of that nature...
Just give it a week or so, then post all you want. Except about the teddy bear......

Glad to see I'm not the only one. It's especially frustrating because there is no warning, there's no timeframe expectation set, and there's nothing to indicate the existence of your pending post or thread. Are the moderators trying to mimic the black box of issuer approval processes out of some deep-seated sense of irony? :-P

It took about 24hrs for my first posts to get approved, but once they did, my account was "graduated" right there, so it wasn't a big deal. It's a bit frustrating, and maybe a problem for somebody who has a time sensitive question, but I'm sure financial forums get more than their share of spam, so maybe this measure is necessary.

I've seen worse. There was some forum I used where it took a full week for my account to get manually approved, and until that happened, I couldn't post anything. Lots of people complained about that, some taking more like 2 weeks, so it was happening to everybody, not just me.
