Post approval conditions

Sorry if this has been an answered question, but why do each of “my” posts need to be approved by a moderator? Some kind of account reputation level? I am clearly not a spammer. :slight_smile:

Thank you


There is already consideration about this topic:


From the latest comment in the Gitlab issue it seems that posts by the “members” class will get auto-approved. I’m apparently in that class but a mod still needs to approve all my posts. I became a member in February, apparently before this new rule came into effect. Maybe it’s a bug?

@purplish, yes, it’s an issue for existing accounts and staged accounts (the ones created by the mailing list mirror). The ticket is not resolved yet and we are looking into this.


From Evaluate the Discourse trust level to remove trusted contributors from the moderation queue (2022 Q1) (#40060) · Issues · The Tor Project / Community / Support · GitLab

Update: Users at Trust Level 2 (Member) or higher are not subject to the moderation queue anymore.

Obviously I’m not at that level yet, all posts are moderated.

If you take a look at your own user profile, you will notice that your current trust level is basic user.
