    Why can I post in this thread but not any other? Why, as an existing forum member, am I still waiting after 4 days for my posts to be checked by a moderator? What’s going on?

    Was wondering if you’d be back Motman. Sorry to see you are having problems...could try posting on this thread once more as I believe I read somewhere that new posters are restricted till they make 3 posts and we’ve all had our post count reset to 0.

    I've made at least half a dozen posts since finding the site up and running - still waiting for them to be approved by a moderator! There doesn’t seem to be any way to contact them. You couldn’t send a pm to M.Renk for me could you? 🤞

    Morning all,

    Apologies for the delay in responding, we noticed that when we restored the forum back on the new site the same spamming issues reappeared from the old forum, we've had to implement a workaround but it should now all be functioning correctly and preventing all of the spam going through. We have an approval system in place and once 3 posts have been approved you will be able to post freely without needing it.

    Thanks again for your patience!
