I recently created a new thread onto the forum, and I have not seen it listed. Does it take time for the admin to review all posts? How long does it take for threads to become live to the general public?

A thread should go live immediately. Was it this thread you are wondering about?
Since I just finished my first batch of my own wine (Cabernet Sauvignon), I used recycled bottles (sanitized of course) from our friends. I finally found a real easy method of taking off factory labels. Here is what I did:

1. I took a razor blade (you can buy these simple plastic handled razer blades at any local hardware store - used for removing excess paint off windows). I scraped off all of the old labels.
2. You are then left with some glue residue. To remove this easily without going nuts with the razor blade, find some 'Gojo hand cleaner' (this is a waterless hand/grease remover for the garage/shop). If you use this without water by rubbing this around the outside of the bottle, the rough particles that come in the cleaner will remove the glue excess without major effort. Yes, your bottles may have a smell to them, so....
3. Use hot water to rinse off the excess cleaner off the bottles and either air dry, or use a old towel or t-shirt and dry them.

Now your ready to sanitize and bottle with new/used bottles.

Enjoy!
I noticed for some reason it said this thread was Moderated which I though was bizarre since the threads here are not moderated prior to posting. If you have that feature activated on a forum a post will not appear until a moderator approves it. I will see if I can do that for you.

Actually I just went into the control Panel and found 3 threads of yours that were awaiting moderation along with a few from a Spammer. I don't know why you were on that list. Maybe the Forum Admin can answer that one for you. I do know he said he added something to the forum to keep the spammers from posting but it looks like it is picking up your started threads as well.

Smurfe :)

If your post contains these words the spam filter puts it in the queue:

ipod buy [url free sex pharmaceutical ringtones MOTOROLA NOKIA Samsung Treo

After you have 10 posts though it stops filtering your posts for these words.

That sounds like a good idea. Maybe I ought to do that to my forum. Is this a feature built into vB or did you have to add it? I haven't had Spammer problems in over a year, but for a while it was like here. I was invaded by Porn sites in much the same manner the electronics sites are spamming here.

Moderated?

I tried to post a few days ago in the new member listings and I noticed it never made it in. Was it moderated?

It was basically an introduction of me and the first batch in my basement!

I also tried to post in the new member listing. Do I need to try posting again or will it be moderated?

Hey all--

Got moderated again. I tried to post a topic in the Making Wine section asking about specific gravity.

THanks!

I have 2 posts that are pending moderation too. I think it is because I put a link to my blog on them. Can someone please release them?
