Urk?
Jus wun, farz eye no.

so far my first two posts had to be "approved", and I suppose this one will as well.


Yes, as will the next, and the next . . .

Have you noticed your post count hasn't gone up? That's because this thread doesn't contribute to your post count. So until you start to post ELSEWHERE, the system won't register you as being anything but a first time poster, and I will have to keep approving your posts. Assuming you joined here to discuss something other than introductions, GET TO IT.

Each is the proper guardian of his own health, whether bodily, or mental and spiritual. Mankind are greater gainers by suffering each other to live as seems good to themselves, than by compelling each to live as seems good to the rest." - John Stuart Mill

Um, Cap, apparently he did try to post elsewhere according to the above.

If a member doesn't post here first, *NO* other posts elsewhere will be approved.

Once a member has posted here, *subsequent* posts should appear properly elsewhere in the board.

It's not retroactive, and subsequent posts are subject to the board rules to stay up. Hope that clarifies.

Further clarification provided.

I'm glad I understand this now. It caused me some confusion when I tried to create a new account a while back.

Incidentally, is there a reason why we don't have an automated password reminder here?
