Question: Why don't my posts appear online? I've tried a few times so far.

Please tell me if I'm doing something wrong. Thank you.

You are doing nothing wrong

For new members it will take from 24 to 72 hours for new threads to appear. All new information must be first approved by the moderator team.
Since we are all volunteers, weekend coverage may be less, so new information may take longer

  • I am in the same boat as Willy8 only I've been here a bit longer than 72 hours. With some threads I have responded to, it has stated that my post is waiting for approval. Is this under only specific threads I suppose? Please let me know Moderators!

    Realize that FEAR is our worst enemy. Get up & get out in that stormy weather of the real world & kick fear in the teeth. Stare at it dead in the eyes & walk right through it into the storm; because once you're wet, you won’t fear the rain anymore
  • We are not showing that any of your posts are waiting for approval.
    A new member process has been implemented to help cut down on forum spam, as well as to ensure that the posts from new members aren't violating the forum rules.
    When a new member registers, his/her posts are held for us to review , and if necessary edit , then we approve them to post.
    Once the member has been established, depending on whether their first post was to an existing thread or not, it may show the approve tab which one of us will take care of when we see the post. If they have created a new thread entirely, then the thread will not show until we have reviewed it first.

    I left a response to a thread and it said that it was waiting for approval.Perhaps a system glitch? It isn't that important it just sent me for a bit of a loop. Thx

  • My posts never did appear, Guess they don't want new people. That's OK. It's still a good resource for reading.
  • Your posts are here.........and your my posts never did appear isn't true.........they posted above your recent one.
    Go to the My Stuff area on the left hand side of your page, and click on view my posts........it will bring up all of your posts .
  • I did that, Sandi, but the only posts of mine that I see are on this thread. I had tried to ask a question about the drug Gabapentin on the thread on the subject - I actually tried 2 or 3 times - but as far as I can see it never appeared. If I post it again will it appear now, because maybe I'm OK'd now?

    Its hard to figure out what happened in the past. I have found no reason why your threads did not go through immediately like other new members that joined around the same time you did.

    The behavior of different browsers, how their cache is deleted/managed/refreshed and cookies either deleted or refreshed can determine what you can see on a given web page. I have had members that stated that they didnt see their posts for days, while everyone else could see those same posts. That particular person never rebooted their machine nor did they take down their browser. It was hard for me to get an answer of they were using a PC, MAC and and IOS device. Each will handle things somewhat differently.

    But you can see the post now

  • Hi, Ron. I just successfully made a post on a Gabapentin drug thread, so it looks like I'm OK on here now. - W
