I registered and posted a very long post last night which was later deleted. It was titled "Buying/building advice" and it consisted of a long and detailed explanation of what I was looking for in a PC and what I needed help with. From my point of view, it was a very informative post that would not only help me, but also contribute to anyone else looking to build a PC as I asked some questions I think are rarely answered. I included links, items I would recycle, and a list of components with questions regarding worth for money, performance, compatibility and necessity.

The post was reviewed and approved after 5 minutes. It appeared in the list of threads. However I spotted a grammatical error I wished to fix, and edited the post. Directly after editing, the post disappeared. I thought it may have needed to be reviewed again, but having waited overnight I have to assume it has been deleted, probably by mistake. I'm sorry to make a thread about this, I wish I could contact an administrator instead, but new members are not able to use the Private Messaging system. I've looked everywhere and I have no other way to contact administrators except making another thread. My request is that my post be reinstated, as it was very long and it would be a hassle to write again.
If there was something wrong with the post that warranted its deletion, may I be told what the problem is so that I can fix it and not make the mistake again?

Thank you, and sorry for the bother,
El Burro

The post wasn't actually deleted, what happened was it went back in to the moderation queue to wait for a moderator to approve it.

I just went back and approved the post and you should see it here.

The purpose of the posting queue is to prevent spammers (which it does very well), but unfortunately it also holds legitimate posts until a moderator or administrator can manually approve the posts. You are very close to breaking out of the queue though (like one approved post away).

Thank you for your reply and help. The reason I thought it was deleted was because it took more than 8 hours to be approved. I thought the reviewing process was done by an automated system that looked for banned words, I was not aware they were individually reviewed by a moderator. I apologise for my impatience, thanks again for the help.

Don't worry about it, I would be impatient too :mrgreen: .

You should be out of the posting queue now and free to post wherever/whenever.

This one is more for the Administrators/Moderators.

I know that somewhere Shen made a form to print out about the mods that we have done so that people can just read what is done to the car and ask questions. I know that there alot of people that talk all the time about the car but sometimes it would be nice just to talk to the people that you chat with on the boards.

That something that we might want to do?

Looked in my owners manual and no heat in passenger seat back. Wow, doesnt seem like there should be any good reason why Honda didnt put heat in the passenger seat back? Whats up with that.
