    Why my posts aren't showing up immediately anymore?

    Hello,

    I used to get my messages posted as soon as I send them, but now it tells me that they need to be checked by a moderator...

    Could you please give me a reason for that?

    Good question, I'll pass this up the chain of command and see what's going on.

    In fact to be more precise, I'm able to post on some sections but when I wanted to reply to a thread I opened in the CSS folder, I got that message...

    I'm worried that somebody considered the link I posted as a spam

    Thank you

    It looked OK to me, but I want someone higher up to look at it and see if they can figure out what caused it before I approve it.

    Your post probably contained a word that happens to be on SitePoint's 'suspect' list. Any post that contains a word that occurs on that list is flagged for moderation and has to be approved by a moderator before becoming visible to the public.

    Some of the words on the list appear to be rather innocuous, but they are probably occurring frequently in spam posts, which is why they ring the alarm bells.

    Ok, and should I expect my post to be approved or I need to make a new one?

    If it hasn't been approved after 17 hours, it probably won't be. But making a new one will only help if you avoid the words that cause it to be flagged for moderation.
