Talking New members, can't see your post? Look in here!

First off, welcome to Reefer's Cafe! If you're reading this post, there's a good chance it's because you're having trouble submitting posts of your own. Here's what's going on: For the first 10 posts for a new member, any post that starts a new thread, or contains a picture or URL will NOT be posted immediately. Instead, your initial posts go to a moderation queue, where one of the moderators will approve it before it's posted.

Why all the hassle? Well, Reefer's Cafe was flooded with "hit-n-run" spammers. These are people that create an account, post an advertisement or three, then disappear never to be heard from again. We (the moderators) would delete the spam and ban the spammers, but soon it became like playing a losing game of whack-a-mole. We finally added a vBulletin enhancement that forces new posts (or posts with links/pictures) into the moderation queue, where a moderator examines and approves them. While we understand that it is an unfortunate inconvenience for new members; it has effectively solved our problem with spammers.

New members, please bear with us. If you create a new thread, or try to post pictures or URLs in any of your initial 10 posts, there will be a short delay before your post appears in the forums.

If a day has passed since your initial post and it is not displayed please e-mail webmaster [at] reeferscafe {dot} com or simply click here to send us a message.
