Default New Members Moderation


Unless I missed it in the rules somewhere, I did not see a specific rule addressing length of moderation for new members. Is there a given length of time, or number of posts which may be made, prior to new members being removed from moderation?

I run two online forums (IPB software) and have them set at 1 and 5 posts, respectively, prior to the member being moved into another user group, OR being removed from moderation.

Anyway, was just curious about that, if someone is willing to share that information.

EDIT: I see this post was not moderated. Are there specific forums, or other parameters in place, that may cause a post to be moderated?

It is not a static thing. While it is set for a specific number of posts it can also kick in for a fairly new member using specific keywords in a post.
