Mod Approval on Disagreeing with Guru thread?

Post by Mantrik » Thu Jul 12, 2018 9:17 am

Just wondering why comments are suddenly subject to Mod approval on this thread.
Is there an issue?
If so, perhaps a post on the thread would be polite.

That thread's on the Discovering Mahayana Buddhism sub-forum which has always been subject to moderation in my experience.

Thanks. That could be it but it only seemed to be in the latter part of the discussion. Odd.

Bristollad is correct. That forum is fully moderated. There might have been a mod closely following the thread for a while and approving as posts came in. When mods aren't on it, it will languish a little.

That said, it might be better to move that thread to another sub forum where the mod rules don't apply.

I'll do that in a second.

Entered a stupa compound
And chanted but once, “Namo Buddhaya!”
Have certainly attained the path of the buddhas.

Thanks for explaining. :)
Yes, it seems to be ticking along nicely.

Got distracted, but it has been moved. Happy posting!

That's actually a good point... as a general rule we only remove topics that, for moderation reasons, we feel should not be accessible, but I don't recall removing threads because they've outlived usefulness... will need to discuss this with the team...
