Do GR "vet" the success stories

Takes us back to my proposal for INSTRUCTIONS to be presented EVERY TIME someone clicks to start a new thread on a board.

Any board.

And plainly, the instructions should start out:

You are about to place a post on the ____ board, which is for posting _____ (and is NOT for posting _____, _____ or _____).

Didn't we just talk about that?

These search posts have always appeared on Success Stories. Despite the claim to pre-screen. And despite the notice, in the olden days, that "trying to find" posts posted on the wrong board (Chat, Success Stories) would be removed.

I have to say I have been tempted to post something completely outlandish and irrelevant on Succes Stories just to see what happened ...

Btw, what I've done in the past, and I think I did just the other day, is send a quick PM to the lost soul advising to post in the right place.

Tracey's story has been requested for review

but there was another "looking for" immediately above it, which I have requested for review

they did used to moderate all postings on the Success board

it would take at least 24 hours, or sometimes 3 or 4 days before postings would appear .......... you could tell from the date that was on the posting vs the date it appeared.

Plus, they used to appear in batches ...... nothing for several days, then 5 or 6 all at once.

I had noticed late last week that "search" psotings were appearing on there

Please, GR, go back to moderating Success!
