Waiting approval by a moderator

This morning I posted an answer to this question: https://ask.sqlservercentral.com/questions/136016/prevent-database-in-recovery-state.html

and the site told me that "The answer is waiting approval by a moderator". Is this something new as I've never had to wait for my answer to be approved. Well, once I was past the karma threshold of course. ;-)

Just was checking on it.

Looks like your answer has now been approved.

Yeah I saw that. I updated the answer to remove some duplicate wording and it's tell me that it's awaiting approval again.

Ok, maybe it's just a timing issue. My edits are now approved. Weird

It's not showing in the moderation queue for me.

I think that might have been me. Sorry for that!

Dave C has been adjusting the spam filter settings to help prevent some of the more prolific outbursts of spam. Unfortunately, that has had a knock-on effect, and people we would normally completely trust have found themselves falling foul of the new filters.

I hope that the Devs are working on a better solution, but I doubt it'll get done soon.

No worries; Not sure I'd trust myself either. ;-) I kid I kid! Please don't block me. HA! =)

Ooh. I've managed to write a comment that I then had to approve. This seems a bit odd...

So this just happened again. Posted an answer and is awaiting approval from moderator. Just an FYI -

@ThomasRushton there's nothing that we can do currently, but I'll get in touch with AnswerHub and find out if it's something they'd be able to adjust for us.

Can't get the staff, innit? Just kidding - I just had a few minutes to spare and @gina.taylor is working hard next to me.
