On our instance we’ve discovered 2 users who were silenced for “new user typed too fast”, but don’t have any posts appearing in the (historical) review queue, so it seems like there was no way for moderators to ever approve their posts.
One of these users reported it themselves, the other I discovered after some investigation:
I’ve spent some time trying to figure out what went wrong here, but have very little idea. The closest I’ve got is by making a post get stuck in the queue locally, then manually deleting the
ReviewableQueuedPost from the db. The end result looks the same as with these two users, so my only theory is that something has been deleting these from the db, or they were never saved in the first place.
Everything I’ve tried is in the issue above, including the Rails commands to fetch this data. I’d be interested to know if there are any users affected by this on Meta.
