    I Need an Explanation, Please

    I posted my digital works thread in the Photoshop/Rendering board, but when I went to go check up on it, I found that it had been deleted.

    I don't appreciate this kind of bullshit, especially from a forum that's supposed to be so professional and respectable.
    I did not advertise in that thread.
    I did not offer my service as a graphic designer.
    I did not try to scam anyone.
    I only posted my own work and none of the work that I posted even had stocks in them.
    I didn't swear in the thread.
    I didn't double/triple post.
    I didn't pick a fight.
    I didn't post offensive/pornographic material.


    I am the owner of a forum and can understand any logical reasoning for deleting someone's post(s), and I would like to hear that reason from the moderator who did it.
    In my thread, I posted a few logos, two of which were for a forum called Alternate Platform. I was not advertising and they were two of my best logos and I simply wanted to show them off. If this was the reason for the thread being deleted, you could have/should have messaged me, and I would have happily taken them down, you did not have to delete my thread like I'm some common spammer.

    I don't want to leave this forum, and because I'd still like to try to be a part of this community, I won't be rage quitting, even though I probably should. I'd just like an explanation from the staff member who did this. I would have PM'd a staff member directly and possibly had a discussion with them on the issue, but it appears I cannot send private messages yet, this is the reasoning for posting this topic.

    Thank you in advance for a quick reply,
    S Michael

    On Darkdemon, we have an approval system. Everyone who signs up has to have their first 10 posts (may be 15, I forget) approved before they have full access to the forum's features. In this time anything you post will not appear until it is manually approved by a member of staff.

    Your thread was not deleted. It had simply not been approved yet. I just approved it. Unless I am missing something, this is a misunderstanding.

    I do hope it was just me being a moron.
    It was already approved and working fine yesterday, what would have caused it to need re-approval?

    My apologies for this, I tend to get worked up, mostly because of crappy experiences I've had with other forums.

    If you had edited the first post between then and now it will have gone "back under" for reapproval. Every edit of the first post will cause this until you're no longer in the Newly registered user group.

    Easy assumption to have made, man.

    Whilst we're here, do you have any other questions?

    Re: I Need an Explanation, Please

    I do indeed have a few questions.

    My forum is being overrun by spammers, is the post approval system preinstalled in phpbb, or is it a plugin/mod/hack?

    I also need to know where I could post a graphically modified version of easytoon? I changed up the GUI to make it look smoother and more professional.


    Thanks for being so helpful and understanding.

    I'm not your guy for technical help, so don't quote me, but I think it's a phpbb feature. The truth is though, that I don't know. Hopefully Elliott will chime in on that.

    Here or here will do for posting your easytoon tweak. As long as you're not claiming to own the software or making money from downloads or something then you're fine.

    Edit: and, you're welcome.

    I utilise a combination of built in features to keep the forums clean, the first is the use of the newly registered usergroup, which is a default group in phpBB, the second is a Q&ACAPTCHA with pretty strict settings
