Just One Quick Question
I am new to this site. I posted my very first thread this morning in the "Atheism and Theism" forum and then as soon as I clicked "post thread" my thread just vanished. Was this just a bug or is there some sort of approval system in place where a thread has to be approved before it can be submitted to the public. Thanks!

RE: Just One Quick Question
First posts need to be approved by a member of the forum management team. This is just a way to prevent spam bots from cluttering up the forum.

I've also moved your "Argument with my Philosophy Teacher" thread to the. Philosophy section.

RE: Just One Quick Question
The post has to be approved by a mod, we used to have a major bot problem and this is how we weed them out. As long as you're a real person it will be approved whatever you write, it's not a censorship thing or anything.

Thinking about it the fact that you could post this probably means your post has now been approved, you should check again and see if it's reappeared.

Best
Ferdinand: We don't really say 'theist' in Alabama. Here, you're either a Christian, or you're from Afghanistan and we fucking hate you.
Worst
Ferdinand: Everyone from British is so, like, fucking retarded.

It's a little confusing to everyone at first, but you really need to read the forum rules. I'm guilty of the same confusion after having posted without reading the rules. Your first posts must be approved by a moderator. Until you have been approved for posting your posts are hidden from the public and only mods can see them. It protects from spam bots and other nuisances.
