    Forum moderators that approve postings and support

    nouveau Newbie
      Does anyone know how we can contact the moderator for the forum?
      We recently made a posting that came back different from how we submitted it.

      It would be great to have a preview of the posting before it is submited.
      Or have a way for the owner of the posting to edit it.

      Thank you,

          There have been numerous accounts of responses being hacked and changed by a former member who periodically hacks the site and makes changes, answers questions etc.

            It is strange as there are "moderators" that will approve your post, but yet there's absolutely
            nobody to contact???

              I have made a forum post today and also posted a story and neither one is visible anywhere. Not even when I click on my contributions in my profile.

              Does it take a while for the cahe to clear on this forum and then the post will be visible to the public, or what.

              I would be very disappointed if the past hour I spent posting on this site was for nothing.

              What happens as soon as I click on post? What process is there. Moderator approval, etc?

               

              Thank you

                  A former/inactive member probably still hacks the site. The same thing has happened to me as well. Post again and keep trying. Maybe one will get through when 'that person' is not looking.

                      Based on the activity and no response leads to 1 reason, it's a Bot.
                      Bots are software applications that run automated task over the forum.
                      This is way you don't see any support contact links. That would require a person to work at least part time.

                      All it does is parse incoming postings to filter out any key phrases that are against the User Agreement and Community Guidelines of this forum..

                      Very unfortunate for a site with so much potential.
