PTB is now closed
We are testing out new post formatting for the forum. There might be some issues present (white text, blank quotes, etc.), we are looking to resolve those. Thank you.

Minor spelling edits cause discussions to be held for review?

Why? I get that there might be some sort of anti-flooding system at work here, but why not just accept the change without bumping the topic, especially if it occurs within less than two minutes of posting?

    This is indeed very confusing. My post just disappeared after an edit and I didn't know why.

    It's due to your accounts being newer and the spam filter holding them for review. @MandyTalk or @Peanits if they're on can clear it up for you.

    Heyo. There's basically a spam filter that catches most spam posts. Sometimes it'll catch a legitimate post and flag it. A mod has to come through and approve it or confirm that it's spam. The reason why it sometimes flags on edits it to prevent someone from posting a legitimate post, then editing it to spam.

    Hang tight, I'm out right now but I'll check it out soon.

    Sorry Peanits I couldn't resist that one, the timing was too priceless.
