Having to wait for nearly four hours to post is asinine and counterproductive.

Today I came across the posting:


I found the answer to this question and wanted to post the answer at 5:35 PM, but I had to register first.
***There was no facebook registration available.**** This is where someone presses a facebook button and is automatically registered through their facebook account.

I attempted to login after registering in one minute and got this message:

Your account needs to be approved by an Administrator before you can log in.

I was irked, I had the answer ready to post NOW.

Most people would just say "f--- this" and not post the answer.
I am not most people.
I copy and pasted all of my answers and waited.

At 9:16 PM, 3 hours 41 minutes later I was finally approved by an administrator.

I only saw the message that I was approved to post 6 hours 22 minutes later.

You are a large website, with tens of thousands of posts, but you could be so much more.

When there is instant registration through facebook, having to make people wait for nearly four hours to post limits your sites growth.

For the exponential growth of your site, change this immediately.

Thanks for taking the time to post. And sorry about the wait. The forum registration was open until spammers came. Then we had to add the approval process.

Yes, it'd be helpful if one could sign on with Facebook but this forum software does not have that feature.

The image button icon is not broken. That's how that icon is. :-)

A user should be able to upload images from the computer. We'll have to wait until that feature is added in the forum software.

Thanks again! We welcome complaints.
