"auto silence first post regex" For all first posts

We want all new users that are posting for the first time to go through a moderation. So I put a * in the field " auto silence first post regex", but found out today that a first time comment-er’s post appeared without any need for moderation.

Am I not using that feature correctly ?

That’s a :warning: dangerous setting to modify as it is intended for hard-core spammers.

What you want is simple require approval for all new posts, look in site settings under approve post count, approve unless trust level, approve new topics unless trust level, and so on.
