    What kind of problems are you having? You can't start a new thread at all, or your thread is getting deleted? What is the topic of the thread you are trying to start?

    bhanu, I looked in the Art Discussion forum and I can see your thread, but I don't think anyone else can see it. It has a note on it saying that it has been "Moderated" but I don't know what this means and I don't know how to change it.

    I think perhaps that forum has a setting to try and catch all the spam and maybe your thread got caught? That's just a guess.
    Pontemonti would be the person who would know, I assume.

    That forum is for some reason marked as "moderate threads", which means that all threads posted in it have to be approved by a moderator.

    Ditto, I've tried posting art related questions etc there a few times before, and it never shows up. In fact most of the threads in that forum dont seem to change much. Seems to be a little over-moderated perhaps?

    Whoa, same thing happened to me. So a moderator has to approve your topic before it gets posted? Strange...

    The problem is that forum gets TONS of spam--like multiple new threads a day. So the settings were changed requiring all new threads to be approved by a moderator before they show up.

    Right, so how long until a thread becomes 'approved'?

    You just have to wait until a moderator gets to it. I'm sorry it's rather inconvenient, but we are trying different things to handle the spam problem.
