It's the best one we have so far. For example, I just deleted 19 spam threads under moderation. I apologize for the inconvenience to the new legitimate members, but once you're approved you'll have no more issues and you'll have a spam-free site to post on

Yeah. I Hate That They Storm Upon Us Like That, Just For Their Business.
But, Like Me And SummerStorm, If You Post About XI AND Then Advertise, Thats Fine.

It's really not that big a deal, and it's well worth the wait if it means a site that's safe from spam and other undesirable detritus I tried to find something in the FAQ about it, but didn't see anything - which is why I assumed there was something wrong with my account, when it first happened. No biggie, though.

Approximately how long does it take to get your account authorized? I registered nearly 4 days ago, yet I'm still unable to do anything in my user CP due to permission issues.

As a fellow vBulletin admin, I appreciate the work you do. Thanks!

Unhappy Aha!

And here I was waiting to be able to set my signature and avatar before I began posting. <sigh!>

This really should be a FAQ item -- and perhaps included in the registration activation email as well...

--
Boldly going forward 'cause we cannot find reverse!
