    There's another strange thing going on: some new posts appear after some delay. I just got a notification via Tapatalk that jig replied in the PalmDesktop thread, but opening the page on the website still shows my post as the last. Refreshing the page has no effect, and the post will still refuse to appear. Strangely, opening Tapatalk also shows my post as last, even though Tapatalk notifications still show jig replied. The new post will appear only after a few minutes. I've seen this on other threads, but assumed it was my memory and short attention span playing tricks, but in this case I don't think jig would be a part of it ;) :)

    EDIT: I think part of it was my attention span again... I thought I read "jig" on the Tapatalk notification, but now I checked again and it says "jlwu". But there's still the notification of a new post, and I can't see the post on a browser or Tapatalk.

    Raspy, my thought is that jlwu has created a post in the referenced thread, but as a new member it hasn't been blessed by Our Moderating Volunteers (caps out of respect), so it's not visible. just my 2¢

    Since when did new member posts require moderator approval?

    jig, I was thinking the same thing. The post by jlwu finally appeared about 2.5 hours after I received the notification on Tapatalk. Something must be broken. If I had to wait so long for my post to appear on a forum I visit for the first time, I don't think I'd return to that place. I think the blessing by a Mod was proposed some years ago due to the high spam traffic BH used to have, but one of the big guys (Ed, I think) spoke against it. I've never heard about it being implemented.

    New member accounts get flagged for various suspicious info. This puts them into a moderation queue which we have to approve before they are made visible. Not all new members end up here. The details of why they were flagged are not made evident to us either.

    Here's a composite image, screenshots taken just now. Left is my computer browser, right is my V10:

    post.jpg

    Notice the time difference: the Alert panel says jlwu replied just 22 minutes ago, while Tapatalk says he replied 2 hours ago. It's the same post on the same thread. :vbconfused::vbconfused:

    EDIT: My last post went in just as hc was replying. I guess in this case the post had indeed been flagged for blessing. Thanks for the explantion, hc.

    2nd EDIT: And the image I posted can't be seen now. That seems to have become the norm as of late :(

    And as a last note, the accounts are flagged by the system, not by users.

    The image in raspy's post appeared after I refreshed the page a few times.

    I tossed the new guy into the pool after finding his first 2 posts in the Moderation queue. System software may have placed him in Moderation because he listed a January 1 birth date (a frequent spammer characteristic.)
