    Wish there were actual forum mods who would monitor threads. Not ones who will once in a blue moon open a thread to get our opinion about something so they can write an article about it. A lot of the threads recently tend to get super extra and toxic where people start getting personal. It’s fun at first but now it gets annoying/toxic.

    I’m starting to get these annoying “This post awaits approval by forum moderator.” messages after some posts. We all know there are no active “forum moderators” here. These posts could be days waiting to be approved. Not good.

    It would be nice to have catagories for in the fourms for Film Awards and Tv Awards … then we could move all Oscars , Emmy Etc convos to those and simply talk about movies and tv in the og catagories.

    I disagree, as this website’s edge is its focus on awards.

    Are posts still failing to show up after you hit the “Submit” button? I thought we’d found the source  of that problem and fixed it a while ago.

    Riley’s newest television polls are prime examples of this:

    No links in the posts I have Tom. Is it possible that the forum can just no longer handle the long posts that the episode grades thread requires and that has caused it to glitch/see it as spam?

    Same. Most of the spam that gets through doesn’t have many links anyway

    Very interesting theory — maybe so. So I assume that’s what the missing posts all have in common — they’re too long. I’ll have our tech wiz kids investigate that …

    Waiting for a forum moderator to approve an edited comment.

    So frustrating, especially in fast paced threads where your comment will end up lost by the time it can get approved (if ever) – I don’t think I’ve ever seen one of my comments approved after it gets highlighted.

    Really infuriating as a regular poster who isn’t spamming. I’m just editing my comment. In my own thread I created. Grrrrrr.

    I dislike that I’m still unable to login on my phone, no matter how many different ways I try. The sidebar menu button is un-clickable. I saw someone else had this trouble before and I was wondering how it was ever resolved? Help me pls :\

    I guess the honest question here is: is there actually a moderator doing this work — regularly or not? Posts from days ago still have not been “approved”. The whole thing is infuriating because once these comments are allowed in, chances are no one will see them, as they will be stuck three or four pages behind the current discussions in the threads
