can some one tell me who these moderators are and what they are looking for in my posts and why they are delaying the posting?  I have posted noting except info on what I received on the promotion along with a question on the promotion, Along with answering a survey of do I stay in more Marriott that have perks for Platinum or not. Then my comment on i have never seen this pin people.  Have I violated some type of policy on this site?

    Hi, NVB78. Welcome to MRI and thanks for participating and posting. The moderators are part of the MRI team who monitor discussions and provide advice and help when needed. All new MRI members' posts are moderated for a short time, primarily to ensure the poster isn't a spammer. Once you've been posting for a while, the moderation is no longer needed. Our NathalieF posted this a while back to explain the reason for moderation:

     

    Why is my post ‘awaiting approval’?

    You've violated no policies; it's just part of the program for all new members.

      A top of the line answer from one of the elder statesmen!!

       

      I'm still at a loss as to why my posts are not moderated and delayed, do they not know who I am?

        They let misterchk post, so that means you are in the clear.  (I know you try to emulate Chuck, but the truth is that he is the champ in this area and if his stuff gets in, so can yours!)

          Sorry, no emulating anyone......just another side to find on the "Dark Side".

        IAHFLYR you moved to the "Dark Side" the moment you started associating with me.  You are now considered by the moderators "guilty" by association. 

         

        The good news is we have infiltrated the highest levels of Marriott and our operatives are so well placed that they allow all posts of my compatriots thru without delay.

    NVB78 It took me a while to figure this out too!  I could not even send a PM (private message).  This was only a few days ago I figured it out.  Keep posting !

        I sent you a PM - I think you need to get more credits.   I had issue with that too until the admins here decided I was a real person and not a spammer.

    This is fairly recent, IME. Over the past few months we were getting spammed by people who would create an ID then flood the site with some Korean writing. Don't know if it was real or Gibberish. But thread after thread would be flooded with this ****. So now if you are a new poster then the mods have to review your post. Once you've been around for a while your posts aren't reviewed anymore.
