Moderators vetting of posts
 
How many times does one have to post in the forum before one's reply appears immediately, rather than after scrutiny by a moderator?

In tutoring, we have usually the sense of talking directly to the poster; and if they are in the forum, and respond with a request for some further clarification, we can gain a sense of shared effort, and get to know each other.

But when one's reply goes into a void.....and may not appear for hours.....

....it feels like relating to a black hole in space.

It takes about 5 or so posts before new members are no longer moderated. The reason for moderating is to keep the forums free of spam.

Sorry for the delay, we do appreciate your contributions!

Many thanks for your reply.

I can appreciate your desire to keep the forum spam-free. I fear that this policy, of posts not appearing for up to 24 hours later, is also keeping new visitors from becoming active members of the forum. I happened to enquire about non-appearance of posts. I doubt that potential new members in the past did; and like John Kenter this month, felt that they preferred the experience of immediacy offered in other forums. He hasn’t been back (but is posting in another forum!)

Forgive me for being so forthright, but while three or four similar forums are thriving, with posts often every 10-15 minutes, this forum has averaged one post a week this month.

This forum could be so much more.

The irony, for me, of your reply - “It takes about 5 or so posts” – is that there are no questions to post to, in order to establish my bona fides!

Hi sir. Can you tell me which ESL/EFL forums are that active? I have done research and haven't found one that has lots of conversations going on currently.

Thanks
