Hi, first of all, I have looked through the TOS (actually read... well, thoroughly skimmed it.), FAQ, and all appropriate stickies. I keep trying to make threads about certain topics (totally related to the forum in which it's posting is attempted), but my posts are denied publication because I am a new user. I get this, I understand you need to prevent newbies from asking entirely redundant questions, things that can be answered by just googling or search these forums with a few simple keywords. However, the posts I'm trying to make are being denied even though I'm asking questions that I truly cannot find the answers to by searching or lurking. It's just too bad that because I'm so new (and truly can't afford to pay $97 right now) that I'm not getting help because of the moderation system. Anyway, could someone clarify why my new threads are being barred from publication? I suppose it's hard to know exactly why without reading the content of them, but I can't even show you and example! It would get denied publication! Agh!
