    Hey there all! I've been lurking on the site for awhile and recently tried to post. I tried posting a picture of me and my bike to the Pics thread but was told that I had to wait for a moderator to approve my post. Why is this? Also, it's been a few days and still nothing. Is this the case for everyone?

    Thanks!

    A free website, chat board can not afford to man a help line. You are pretty much on your own. At the bottom of the main screen is a helpful thread about how to post pictures....first thing recommended is to post pictures set up a "smugmug photo hosting site".

    Also check out thread rules. At the top of each section of the main menu.

    Remember this site is FREE, no one should expect a lot of support. What support is available is from a bunch of volunteers.

    It's the same for all new members.
    Mostly they are cleared fairly quickly.
    Sometimes over a weekend the mods are out riding and may not get to clear posts for a while.
    It's there to stop the spammers signing up and hitting the site with spam.
    Small price to pay for a spam free site.

    Great! Thanks for the replies. I wasn't complaining at all, I was just a little confused. I read through all the rules and still wasn't seeing my posts pop up and wanted to make sure I wasn't doing something wrong. I've been using photobucket, so hopefully that's alright.
