    Several posts in feedback have for some reason been landing in a moderation queue. We're doing some sleuthing. So far it looks like it's the gold members having trouble, but I'm not sure if it's all of them or some of them. We've been springing the posts as we've spotted them (so be patient if it happens to you...you haven't done anything wrong). Some responses here from members of various user groups (HHs, SAs, contributors, regular members, etc) would be helpful toward finding out where the problem is (or how widespread). I'm not going to spring ones from moderation here (hopefully other mentors won't do so accidentally), so Greg can see who is winding up in moderation more easily to find the problem.

    Test response.

    Edit: Seems like that worked.

    Yep, seems you're allowed in. I'm curious if any of the folks who have already been sprung from the mod queue will be retrapped if they post again.

    Looks like you and G01 are the only gold people to avoid the trap today (between this and the PhD Comics thread). You also both have being HH's in common. Maybe it's just gold members without other medals getting picked up.

    I had that problem in the PhD comic thread - how about another post?

    Hmm. I wonder if I can post here as well?

    Apperently so. This is a weird problem. If I can be of any help, don't hesitate to ask.

    Looks like mattmns and MIH got trapped.

    So, either it likes usernames starting in the letter G, but not the letter M, or being a Homework helper is protecting people. :biggrin:

    I think the obvious connection is the connection between Wannier functions and cartoon anthropomorphic French fry boxes. I don't know how you guys missed that connection!:biggrin:

    It happened again this evening. It seems to happen to contributors who are not HH's/SA's. Go figure.

    I don't seem to have encountered any problems touch wood. :uhh:

    Well, you're a HH and SA, so that ought to be double protection!

    People seem to have been released from the mod queue...does that mean Greg fixed the problem, or does that mean that mentors weren't paying attention to the instructions not to "spring" them on this thread until Greg had time to sort out permissions?

    Let's find out.




    Astronuc: Let's leave this to see what happens if left without action for 24 hrs. I think it gets automatic approval.

    Update: Looks like someone approved it.

    Hasn't been fixed yet, at least not for me.
