This forum seriously needs some love. Tried to help other user yesterday, and mod takes ages to unlock the post. Also responses to community could be more frequent and precise . Just to mention the hmr 2 update.

Garry isn't much better to let the forum open, unmoderated and let people express yourselves? And only in case of impropriety thread/post delete it backward? The people want to communicate, want answers. And where is better place than here?

It's not so much about moderating content from valid members, as it is keeping the SPAM and garbage posts filtered out. Unfortunately there are lots of bots out there that try to abuse the system. :(

I'll talk with the Mobvoi team about it.

Thanks!

Ι totally agree - this forum is like a barren field and, I feel, much of it has to do with the fact that EVERY post is moderated. When I signed up and first posted I thought "oh, they're moderating my first posts, that's ok". And this would indeed be a good practice. But EACH and EVERY post? That's too much and an unnecessary burden. And of course nobody else does that... It's a pity, because people look elsewhere for support etc ultimately.

That's actually the last thing you want to do.

I run another tech forum and if it was totally open, I'd be spending my entire life deleting spam. One spammer signed up and immediately proceeded to send about 1200 spam messages to the forum.

What we do is moderate the first few posts from a new member, and once they've proven that they're not there to spam the cr*p out of everyone, the moderation flag is cleared.
