I posted again as QL and this time I just clicked on the Talk heading and the QL post is here with a pinky red background.

Kizzy you can approve it :-)

This is how the settings look. I especially like the way people can have their points reduced incrementaly because it means if someone posts a lot before we see it and take action we can add warnings which increases the red and will take longer to lose. Sorry that is not a very well said description now is it lol

see screenshot

Interesting - when I clicked onto 'Talk' there was a red exclamation mark besides its heading on the main page and a notice at the top saying:

! There are 0 topics and 1 posts awaiting approval in this board. Click here to view them all.

I just approved QL's 'am I going to be moderated for a while' post  >biggrin<

I'm going to go back and edit one of 'her' posts  ;-)

I'm sure I made another post after this one - no matter...

I've looked at all the screenshots and I can't see what I'm supposed to be looking at with the 'traffic lights' - is it the symbol under QL's avatar which also says 'moderated'?  Sorry for being so thick  >blush<

Kizzy,

Sorry  >blush< I slipped into not explaining enough. When a member is warned the icon and wording under their avatar is green, when they get put under pre moderation it goes to orange and then when their posts are blocked it goes to red.

It is not actual traffic lights.

Hugs remember I have had more time with the program than you and you being here is helping me work out what I need to do eg screen shoots walk throughs ect.

I am watching BB the interview should be good but I wont say who got evicted in case you are waiting until tomorrow to watch it.

Thanks for not posting a 'spoiler'  ;-)

I get it now about the warning icons - I think I got muddled because I didn't see the process of them changing! 

Got another test - can QL post something which will not be approved and then we can find out if they are notified when their post fails to pass pre-mod....

The QL account did not get notified that the post was rejected. I posted again using the QL log in and could see there are only two options approve or reject and no option to notify. It is good to have a better idea of how the system works.

If you look at QL's info on this thread it has orange text, could you go and warn QL again and see that it turns red :-)

I've issued another warning, but I couldn't increase the level from 55% due to the '24-hour rule' - still seems to be on orange  >erm<

PS - I've got to go out for a bit, BBL  :-)

Ooh, I just increased it to 60% and it all went red - 'user will not be able to post'  >biggrin<

Then I didn't include that information on the warning issued  >doh<

I'm just itching to ban QL >lol<

Off out to parents' tonight, see you in the morning sometime  >hugs<
