Hi

New here. Just wondering how long it takes mods to review questions before they are posted?

I'm not a mod but as far as I know posts are initially posted without moderation so they should appear immediately.

When I posted a question it said:

Your thread (or whatever the word it used) will be posted as soon as it is reviewed by a moderator.

I think for new users they are, up until a certain number of posts or until the account is approved.

As a temporary measure against spamming, posts (especially a newbie's first post) that contain a link that can't be checked out are very likely to have to await approval by a moderator.

Some non-newbie members might benefit from this also
