Suggestion Attachment pending approval

    "Attachment pending approval"

    First let me say that I totally understand the need for approval of attachments, I've seen other boards get spammed with porn and so on and its a total nuisance. However I was wondering if anyone had considered allowing senior members (with over some minimum post count) to have automatic approval of certain file types (types incapable of carrying viri for example). Or is even tis too risky? Any comments?

    This has been considered before. I'm not sure if it is possible. However if you do see an attachment that has been waiting for approval for a while, please feel free to report the post.

    I do this fairly often, and the response time (after reporting) is pretty good.
