    I don’t think there is a mod, i still have posts on some of the games that are still waiting for approval and its been weeks lol. By the time they get approved, it’ll fuck up all the games i posted in.

    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 have this problem too, but I also have this problem with regular posts. No editing – just a post in a thread. It’s absolutely infuriating.

    SOOO SORRY! Please accept my apology. My editors and I just found the place in this site’s admin area where all of your unapproved posts have been hiding — the ones we’re not  OKing for publication. OMG! We will fix this problem IMMEDIATELY.

    I feel TERRIBLE about this  — how we let our spam filters dangle your posts forever in limbo! Again, my apology.

    HOW IT HAPPENED: The system we use to catch spam  changed recently and nobody told us.  Months ago we editors would look in the “Forum Replies” area in our site’s admin area and “Pending” would appear in bright red letters next to a post if it was being held for moderation. All we editors had to do was to look for the “Pending” warnings, read the post and either push it through or delete as spam. Now all pending items go right into the spam folder and we’re supposed to sift through them for posts to rescue and publish as legit. None of us editors knew that we should even be monitoring that spam folder throughout the day! When I finally opened it today, I gasped,  “OMFG! I think we just found the source of the problem!”

    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?

    YES!!!!!! This seems to be what’s happening. It happened to me yesterday. I had a back and forth with a poster. I wrote something, she quoted me, I quoted her back, she quoted me again, and by the time I quoted her for the second time and hit the submit button, it never showed up.

    My new post would’ve had like 4 posts/quotes in it. Too long. So I decided to try and erase the first two posts (my original, her 1st response) and that’s when my post finally showed up. This is on the “OVERRATED movies of the year” or something thread in the Oscar forum if you want to take a look.

    It happened again just now by the way. I quoted Tom’s post and it had Tom’s original question, @forwardswill answer/quote, then Tom’s answer/quote and then my response. It didn’t show up. I erased parts of it, and now my response is there.

    So it’s either posts that are too long, or posts with too many quotes.

    So, I came here to talk about something else, but found that “posts are too long” theory and commented on it.

    My new issue with GoldDerby is that threads are showing up empty. I open a thread and then no comments show up, only the blank comment section. It’s happened twice now. My current issue is with the Survivor thread. I hit submit and my comment apparently goes on the thread, but I can’t see anything but the empty comment section again. I then write “Can anybody see my post? I can’t see the thread” or something like that. That was saturday.

    I went to the thread to see if the problem was still there, and yes, I can’t see any posts. But it does say “Last uptaded by MsCaramel”. I click there and it takes me to her profile and her comments on the Survivor thread show up. One of them is something like “Sorry you can only see your comments”. I asume this is an answer to my question. So apparently my comments are going on the thread. I just can’t see anything at all.

    I’ve been having issues with a couple of things:

    1. The ‘Y’ glitch: I’ve seen a few people comment on this issue where they can’t type the letter Y, and end up having to paste it into the text every time, capitalize it, or add in the letter with the accent mark. It gets especially frustrating when you’re on mobile and don’t have the same easy accessibility as you would with a computer.

    2. On certain posts, whenever I click ‘newest comment’ to get to the newest page, I have to click through however many pages there are to get to the current one, which can also get frustrating after a while.

    Maybe the problem is fixed now? I just went in to the Survivor thread and had no trouble posting a test message:

    The problem (or maybe it’s only me, I don’t know) it’s on the Survivor thread, the reality show. Not Designated Survivor. 🙂

    That new automatic scroll up thing in prediction center is really annoying!

    I have that same issue, but I can usually work around it by using the “Text” response tab rather than “Visual” at the top right of the comment field. Give that a try in the interim!

    I always liked going through previous choices from previous years for all the different awards. I miss that I cannot find that feature here.
