I just wantet to write something (positive) about one of our member's gallery fotos of really beautiful pots. When I hit the add comment button, I got the "Your comment requires moderator approval before it will be shown". I don't like that. I know we already had that problem discussed on and on in the near past. Please Admin, stopp the moderator approval thing. It is generating a great deal of bad blood. Thank you and kind regards.

Check out the "In the Studio" area of the forums for a long thread on Gallery Commentary ... They would love to get rid of it but have not figured out how.

Sometimes with software ....you fix one thing ....and that breaks another.  Such apparently was the case with the recent malware attack.  They are trying to figure it out.......... without breaking yet something ELSE.

 

Sorry.  Patience appreciated.

Thank you, Chris and John, for your comments. Just wanted to inform you. It's good to read that admin is still trying to solve the problem.

We are definitely looking into this and are trying to adjust settings to make comments in the gallery possible without moderation. You, Evelyne, and many others are here to have a conversation about ceramics, and commenting on images of ceramics is central to that. Hopefully we can nail this soon.

 

Thanks,

Update. We have a help ticket in with the forum software company to address this, since we've "allowed" comments on images and bypassed moderation everywhere we can find in the admin tools.

 

Also, we have located the place where admins can approve the comments that have been held up to this point, and are in the process of approving all of them, so those should go live soon.

 

Its not ideal, but will at least get the comments posted, and the forum software folks might learn something.

Hi Sherman

 

Thank you very much for your comment and update. I always thought it a good idea to comment on other ceramists works, (and maybe get in touch with them through discussions), writing comments on the gallery level. I feel that Mods and Admin will do everything to give us that possibility back. And when we see you are making such an effort, we feel valued and respected.

Today I tried to write in the gallery of another member and it worked perfectly fine. It seems that all the effort Mods and Admin did were successful. A big thank you to all the responsible helpers!
