Currently three forums require new threads to have moderator review+ prior to posts permitted : Nursing News, CRNA and Philippine forum. This was done as posts placed in these areas often were better suited to other sections of the board --easier to catch and quickly relocate.
Members placed on moderation due to infringements of Terms of Service - All Users Please Read and Follow
also require moderation approval/review and conformity to TOS prior to appearing on the board.
Due to availability of volunteer moderating staff, there may be periods of minutes to several hours prior to appearing on the board.
