Why are my posts being moderated?

I made two posts to this thread today and they were both held until they were moderated.

I've been posting on this site for a while and have never seen this, is it new or specific to certain threads/forums?

You are not doing anything wrong. We upgraded the forum software here and I guess the moderation feature is going haywire.

@HB - Can you disable moderation? I don't think we need it and it is almost always false positives. I don't have enough privileges to do so.

I see.

I'm also being logged out and have to re-login each time I come back (not sure how long before I get logged out, maybe an hour).

I check the item to "log me in automatically each visit" but it does not seem to have any effect.

EDIT: My posts don't seem to be moderated anymore, thanks!

Sorry about the moderation issue - one of the anti-spam settings was too severe.

Regarding the logging out issue, it may be worth clearing cookies / temp internet files - the forum upgrade may have messed with the cookie "bits and bobs".....

Normal service should now be resumed hopefully... (I am tweaking things behind the scenes so apologies if i break something again!)

I was having the logging out issue on my laptop all day yesterday. I cleared cookies, but not temp files.

Am on my desktop now, and everything's fine.

I will have to check the laptop to see if it's fixed there as well.

I've checked using Ie11 and Chrome and all seems OK here now...

Can you post what browser(s) you're seeing this in and details on how / when you get logged out please.

Might be worth deleting temp/cached files as well?
