Hi there, I've only just realised you have a moderation queue for parts of the forum. The text for this was small so I didn't notice it so apologies for submitting multiple posts in the Welcome thread.

Not a concern. It's odd (and unintentional) that the icebreaker forum has to wait for post approval and elsewhere does not -- still working out the kinks it looks like :)

Welcome!

I figured it was to prevent spam and other crap. Didn't bother me at all. It's a feature, not a bug.

It can be useful sometimes but forum trolls are better off being banned rather than sent through a moderation queue where they add to the time of running the forum. There is a good spam controller that Christian could link the forum to called Stopforumspam.com which will weed out most of the trolls.

You can't ban a true troll. They just join again and again. Using a different IP

I took a look at phpBB forum add-ons, the bottom two look quite promising and are still supported @ Stop Forum Spam http://stopforumspam.com/contributions#link_phpbb
Thank you Andy F! I'd been building up blacklists and this is a huge leap forward. In use as of 10/29 13:30p PT.
