    Hey, I joined last week.

    Former Aerospace engineer living in Colorado. I primarily code my own SEO tools (not looking for customers at this time because I don't want to deal with customer support) and attempt to make money from legal leads.

    I successfully posted to one thread that was selling stuff (I wanted to buy) on the day I joined. I haven't been able to post to any other threads since. I tried later the same day I joined and then again today. In both cases I was attempting to post info for people on how to get data out of the referrer string and the request URI. The first post had no code but the second had a couple of lines of PHP in it.

    you've gotta use the code tags for posting code
    the brackets (squareish parenthesis) around the word code with /code marking the end of it (in brackets as well)

    You may also be getting the message that you are a new member and have to wait longer to post more messages. If that is happening than you just need to wait a little while.

    Yeah, I'm getting the "triggered moderation" message. How long do I have to wait before posting?

    Thanks

    at monk13 (won't let me use the usual)

    Thanks for the heads up but my first post didn't have any code it and still was rejected. I'm getting the "triggered moderation" message on both. I assumed this was what all newbies got when they attempted to post. But I wasn't sure if I needed to wait longer or do something...

    Thanks again
