Noticed when I post to a thread, I get a message that (my message) will not be seen by other visitors until it has been approved by admin.

Just wondering why this is, and what I can do to get it lifted.

Thanks,
Don

Once your profile is filled out an admin goes through and approves new users. Sometimes same day other times it might be a day or two.

Or longer....

One thing that happens often is people sign up for the forum and they don't do the email confirmation. If they haven't done that by the time I check for new users to approve (every day), I don't approve them if they haven't confirmed their email. If they haven't done that within a couple days there is a good chance they aren't going to post anyway or maybe a long time later. If they confirm their email and finally make a post at some point then they will get approved.
