ADMIN: If you think a thread doesn't belong...

Do you let the original poster know? Or do they just wait in limbo?

I posted a thread to swap, about my craigslist post (still for sale after all) and it hasn't shown up yet. But other new threads have. Help?

If it was not allowed, please let me know.

It is really up to the individual moderator as to whether they feel a note is appropriate or not. Many times they do, but sometimes they likely feel it was obvious or perhaps intended to send a note and got distracted or didn't send one for some other reason. I don't usually approve swap posts, so I'm going to report this post and the swap moderators will hopefully see it and approve your post or send you a note;-)

Also, if you don't see your post show up in swap by the next day, something may have happened to it. At that point, you could PM a mod to ask.

I just wanted to add that generally, if it's a move from say swap to community member chat, we'll leave a short re-direct so that the OP can find it.

Also, if the swap moderator is unsure about the forum a post should be in, we will sometimes ask each other and wait to approve it until somebody has weighed in - in that case you may see other posts approved before the initial post.

Sometimes it's also a case of the swap moderator starting at the top of the threads waiting approval and then getting interrupted by kids or family before we finish getting through the list. I generally try and start with older posts and work my way up, but if I plan to get through them all I will sometimes start at the top and work down. (The forum software displays the newest threads at the top of the list and then moves to older, so if you don't purposefully start with the older ones and work your way up, it sometimes mixes up whether newer or older posts get approved first.)

If it's been awhile since you've seen other threads appear though, it's fine to send an inquiry to a swap mod or two just in case we got sidetracked. We do our best, but sometimes life slows us down. I know that I will make a trip to my computer if I get a PM about something. :thumbsup:
