I registered yesterday, and my account was activated today, after I'd received the email.

Went to post today, in Introductions, and it said my post would have to be approved by a moderator. When I tried to email the forum to query this, the email bounced back.

Is this normal, that new members' posts have to be approved first? If so, for how long does this "approval" period last?

EDIT: I see my post in Introductions is now there!
