    Moderated post disappears?

    I posted to a thread I started (on MC Hammer trousers) and it got marked as needing moderation. Why was that, since other posts I've made haven't so far needed moderation? Also, my post is now not visible, nor is any indication that it is waiting to be moderated. Is it sitting in some moderation queue somewhere or has it been eaten by the system? Thanks.

    I added a post to the thread, post #14. It was not visible after being posted, as it was in a moderation queue. However there's no indication of the post being successful but in a moderation queue. It did get approved this morning, and is now visible.

    It's just a bit confusing as there's no indication the post was successful but needs moderation. Nor could I find any indication of the moderation policy for the site, so wanted to post here to clarify and for future people wondering what happens.

    I've had a couple of other posts and thread submissions that weren't moderated, so was also wondering why this post was.

    Something to do with posting a link within your first few posts I think.
