Hi I know im very new to this site but was wondering if restrictions on the mods having to approve each reply / new thread should be lifted as this would increase the fluidity that members can interact. Maybe restrict it to the sales forums.

I fear you're missing the point here Iain, the whole reason a probationary period has had to be enforced is because we get SO many bogus membership applications - all of which are potential 'spammers', or even worse.

Now, our vetting system is pretty efficient - but there is always the chance that one might sneak through it notwithstanding.

By having the probationary period where all posts from new members have to be vetted and authorised it's a sort of back-up defence after which time we can judge from the content of those posts the voracity of the new member and he/she can post without each entry having to be authorised.

Bit of a shame it had to brought about, but that's the modern internet age, so better to be safe than sorry.

So it's just for new users ? If so that's fair enough to keep the spammers away.
