I just signed up for the forum a couple of days ago. I have enjoyed reading the threads on this site for about a Month now. It looks like a great group of people with a lot of knowledge to share. I look forward to discussing all things related to gemstones with my fellow forum members.

One question. Since I joined, I tried to post a reply to a thread where someone was looking for some help. My posts don't show up. Since I am new, does the site restrict me for posting for a while. The permissions I see say I am allowed to post.

Steve

Hi Steve and Welcome to the forum :D
We are proud to host one of the few happy islands in a see full of trolls and spammers. this unfortunately has a cost. Our safety rules requires every single post from a new member to be manually approved by the staff before it will show up in the forum. once the number reaches 10, the member will become a trusted one and he will be free to post directly without any other restrictions but the general rules.

Welcome Steve.
In order to weed out potential spammers, we manually approve the first 10 posts, as Alberto said.
After 10 approved posts, you get full forum privileges. :)

Barbara, Steve,
Thank you both for the kind welcome.
I understand the need to make sure that this site is protected from spammers and trolls. I fully support your efforts in this regard. I will continue to post, and look forward to reaching the 10 post threshold in the near future.

Steve
