Test users new posts going straight to moderation


(Brock) #1

We are currently testing our new Discourse self-installation.
Many of our testers posts and replies are going straight to moderation and I can’t figure out why.
Their replies are short “testing testing” type replies to someone’s post.
Any help?

  • Bootstrap mode is set to 50 users
  • Initial default trust level is set to 0 (should this be set to 1 and then after hitting 50 users it auto goes to 0?)
  • Min post length: 3
  • Min first post length: 10
  • Min topic title length: 5

Thanks in advance for helping clear this up!

Anything that is pasted instead of typed is highly suspect. Search for typing in your settings. But beware you are opening yourself up to spammers if you relax these settings; Discourse is not a chat system, and if you use it like one You Are Gonna Have a Bad Time ™

Yeah, it isn’t that. I tried it with a test user and typed out “that’s cool!” and got flagged

You will need to read all of what I wrote above.

Ah, I see. Considering this is testers, I’m sure their first initial post is super fast and they are getting flagged.

So I’m clear:

If I type faster than 3 seconds (the 3000ms default) and it’s my first post, I’ll be flagged. And let’s say that is then approved. Now on my second post and I type faster than 3 seconds, then I see the “slow down try again in 25 seconds” pop-up, but not flagged?
