    After a few months of browsing, I thought I'd found something useful to say, so I signed up as a member. I posted my pearl of wisdom, and got a message about needing to to be moderated.

    I've successfully made a post to another thread, but my original post has not shown up in Infotainment Screen Video (http://www.teslamotorsclub.com/showthread.php/4897-Infotainment-Screen-Video), and I get the same message about moderating when I try to post again in that thread.

    Any ideas?

    Yes, it's a new member thing. Occasionally new member posts will require a moderator to approve them, so the post might not show up immediately. It's helped cut down on the spam a great bit.

    Ah - It was the "occasionally" bit that threw me. I'm all in favour of weeding out the real weirdoes and spammers with a bit of moderation :) so no complaints here.

    Thanks for the prompt response.

    err.. I had to approve this thread. I intentionally didn't approve the other post because it seemed to be a paraphrased duplicate.
