Post here if you get the "Your post needs to be verified/approved" message


#61

Fixed.


#62

My last two comments got this.


#63

Fixed. Looks like earlier (noon-ish PST?) almost every post requires you to be Verified before it can be posted. Spam queue is full of all sorts of real people. Helping clear that out now.


#64

Yo valaris! I got that message too in GD on a number of different topics


#65

Fixed.


#66

I fixed up everybody that was (accidentally) in the Spam queue today, and took care of all the double+ posts that weren’t actually different posts entirely. I believe Wiz is switching to a different less crazy anti-spam-bot for now. Hooopefully that avoids us having a repeat of today’s shenanigans. =P

Preppy, if you check their profile it says Not verified. I find if you click it and change it to Verified it just takes care of the problem altogether. It happened when we originally switched to these boards but I guess it takes time for some people to get “caught”. I originally went on a giant spree and changed as many people as possible but clearly I missed thousands.


#68

If you just flip the Not Verified bit it would either leave all their blocked posts in limbo (I believe this is what it does) or post their double/triple/etc posts. That’s why I use the very dangerous Spam queue to handle these things. With the Akismet helperbot offline, though, I’m hoping we can avoid trouble again. :\

Take me off the blacklist. I dindu nuffin.redacted

It seems it was already in effect :confused: ??


#70

OK, super crazy aggro Akismet is back online since either we get a lot of spam or a lot of Your Post Must Be Approved messages. Posting this as an FYI, since this is probably going to be a pain in the ass for the next while.


#71

Just got the message as well.


#72

Just got the message as well.


#73

Fixed.

If people could NOT double triple quadruple post, that’d really help. :\


#74

Hey. I can’t post in the General Discussion thread now. Please help :smiley:


#75

Fixed.


#76

I’m getting the message now.


#77

fixed


#78

I can’t seem to post in FGD. Tried three different browsers and it didn’t go through.


#79

yep. saw that you triple posted there and double posted here. fixed that and your Verification for you. peace.

IF ANYBODY’S POSTS ARE NOT SHOWING UP, YOU JUST AREN’T VERIFIED. A MOD WILL FIX THIS FOR YOU SHORTLY.

I can’t make that a log-in message, but I wish I could. :slight_smile:

My last post didn’t show up until like 6 hours after I made it. I don’t remember seeing any message, but I assume this is related?
