I'm not sure how it all works. I created a thread sometime ago and was told that it should be manually approved, I then posted in one of the threads and again was told that it should be manually approved. I checked a few days later and nothing was approved. Now it's been a few weeks since I registered and to find if my posts/threads been approved, I tried clicking my name to see my profile and it's still saying that I can't do it... Isn't it a bit too much security for a forum? This thread will probably just disappear as well.
