Ok this is ridiculous. I make a post and it has one Link in it, even a link to an Adobe website, and I always get "This post is being moderated". What the F is the problem.
And here I thought I was the only one!
Moved from Lightroom forum to Forum Comments for further feedback from Forum Moderators.
Adobe rents the forum software from Jive... including the anti-spam module
Even Adobe staff do not have specific information from Jive as to why any individual message goes to moderation
Between Staff and Moderators there is someone online most of the time, so messages usually don't have to wait very long
Sorry, but I can't be any more specific than that, because I simply don't know why any message is caught
Thanks John but this is just Bogus. Adobe has full control over the forum software. I seriously doubt the members listed as STAFF get this in moderation notice when they post a link in a thread. So whoever runs the forum has some control to Exclude certain members from being moderated, along with the moderators.
I will repeat... the forum software belongs to Jive, not Adobe... so Adobe does NOT have "full control"
It took several months for Adobe to get Jive to do whatever it is that Jive did to exclude Staff and Mods from being subject to moderation... and I do not EVER see that happening for individuals
Well it never happened before about 2 months ago. I use to post links all the time without ever being moderated. And I'm not the only one.
And during the past few months there has been a HUGE increase in spam, the anti-spam filter has been switched from a "relaxed" setting to a "stern" setting (not the real names of the settings, but I don't work for Adobe so only my take on other messages I have read)
The only way to not have the forums FLOODED with spam (mostly from China or Korea, but also a fair amount in English) is to set the spam filter to "stern"
It doesn't only happen with links, a post of mine containing a file path was being moderated ..
It now turns out that anything I post in that thread is moderated, even plain text without links or urls.
It doesn't happen when I post in other threads.
This is completely ridiculous. I made a post with an image in it and it is being moderated. Some body FIX the forum software.
Moderation is absolutely essential to prevent spam and inappropriate content from being posted. We have millions of users, of all ages, and thousands of messages being created every hour so it's impossible to read them all and delete spam retroactively. Only a small fraction of submissions are flagged for pre-approval, it depends on the content and context of the message, and the status of your user account. Beyond that we do not discuss how the system operates.
This is an official company website and there are legal policies which must be enforced. We're not 4chan. If you don't like the rules, nobody's forcing you to stay.
What rules? There are no defined rules posted about why my posts are being moderated. Like I said I posted an image and it got moderated. It was an image of the folder options view tab in Windows 7.
Your right though I don't have to come here anymore. Thanks for confirming this fact.
Images are checked for inappropriate content by the moderators because the automatic filters cannot tell what they show. We moderate nudity, offensive topics such as racism or violence, and private information (users regularly post screenshots that contain email addresses, credit card and serial numbers, which we have to keep out of public view for the customer's protection). Unlike Behance this community has no age restriction for registrants or adult content filters, and if we approved everything we saw in the queue we'd certainly need them.
This is the screen capture I posted in the other thread.
Lets see if it get moderated in this thread.
