    Default why do mods have to approve FS/ FT,

    I am a member of multiple Forums, and this is the only one where a mod has to approve my FS/FT post.

    a bit redundant if you think about it.

    Pretty much, also as we are not ebay, the forum is a "buyer beware" situation, and a mod checking the post before it goes live is the last thing djtt has to do with any transaction.

    I'm a member of a forum where you can buy/sell good with the forums own form of currency... Not even real money... And that sucker is HEAVILY moderated.... Trading and selling on a forum like this is a privilege, and the mods are attempting to protect the users from anything that might seem fishy.. It's not that big of a deal.

    I'm confused about how this forum works compared to others, apparently. Is there a standard waiting period until the posts are approved, and a list of pending posts? Maybe feedback on why a post wasn't approved? I think I have two posts that were approved and five that weren't...? That doesn't really make sense to me since there wasn't anything even remotely questionable about the content of my other posts...

    On a somewhat related note, I think trying to protect the users from each other/themselves is noble and all, but creates extra work and doesn't address whatever underlying problem you're policing against. Sort of like raising children or governing a body of people. Just my .02.

    Figured it be better to bump this, then start a new post.

    I submitted a Listing, for sale, and I have yet to see it approved, or given a denied message...

    Heres looking at you Jester or any mods, i'd appreciate a response.
