Hello posters one and all!!
So we have been swimming in posts waiting to be approved, ever since the new system took place.
Part of the reason for this is that certain areas of the site, and permissions to approve the posts FROM those particular areas, has been granted to only a certain LEVEL of moderator.
We did not figure this out until very recently!
Part of the complication is that only Global Moderators and Admins have power to even SEE the posts from the Private Fora, for example.
I just recently found just that little piece of information, so if you all can bear with us a little longer we should be able to work out the other permutations of this post approval system that is totally new and foreign to all of us.
Again, the regulars moderators (section mods) have been unable to access the posts in Private Foras in ANY way other than to know that they exist...somehow. The interface doesn't let them go any further than knowing their general existence. The menu to DO something about their existence is VERY convoluted and was stumbled upon recently after A LOT. Of digging and trial & error.
There are several more layers to this onion that need peeling but we wanted everyone to know how much the system has handicapped us all and that we are working diligently to get these things solved!
