Hi there,

First of all, a BIG thanks to Jim for the recent changes to the 'My Conversations' gadget - yet another reason to think that h2 is the best community site on the net

NB It's because of how quickly and smoothly the changes were implemented that I feel accomodating my suggestion might well be relatively straightforward... i.e. it's _all_ Jim's fault that I'm here smiley - winkeye

Suggestion:

Somehow 'flag' the postings made by Researchers on pre-mod so that they don't register as a 'Latest Post' until:

they have been vetted by the mods
OR
a subsequent posting has been made (by a Researcher who isn't on pre-mod)

I know that the mods are usually remarkably prompt (smiley - ok) at 'clearing' posts but (and this is pure speculation and definitely not a negative criticism) it seems that the process is somewhat slower between 00:00 and 06:00 ish GMT - i.e. the times that many of 'us forriners' (and UK shift workers etc) are on-line the most and there's a lot (ok, a bit, but hopefully you know what I mean) of bandwidth being effectively wasted at present


Cheers

I think that <./>A1064963#conversations</.> might merit an update considering the recent changes

"Was that not part of the penalty?

The way premoderation works 'stimulates' to ignore the posters comment. We are all a bit annoyed by the 'blind' message and it is quite hard to reply to it.

If we only see the new message after the moderation has lifted, it would seem as if the Researcher only just had posted, appearing as if they are not on premoderation."

But when someone is on pre-mod, it should be them being inconvenienced, not the rest of us who've done nothing wrong...

"Something like: someone being on premoderation can not see what the others have posted until the moderators referred it, but the others can read the premoderated accounts postings direct.

Hmm, failing logic somewhere, and loads of work and technical changes required.

How about: someone on premoderation can only post once an hour ? (creating huge postings smiley - weird)"
