      Sites like this put some new users posts into a moderation queue which them have to be looked at by a moderator before being allowed onto the site. They do this to help them keep spam of the site, I'm sure that someone will let your post through and into that topic as soon as a moderator is available to look at it.

      Hi Kudos, the forum software automatically puts posts into the mod queue if they contain (i think) a hyperlink and the user has made less than (i think) 10 posts. Your first post didn't have hyperlinks so was auto approved.

      I've approved them now.

      It's just a safety net, what if the link that is posted is dodgy and causes issues for other users. Better safe than sorry.

      I think she was asking why it's for the first 10 members specifically?

      Nobody said anything about 10 members, the reference is to 10 posts. The reason for this is that spammers or scammers will not usually go to the bother of making 10 posts before they can post a link. There are posters deleted and banned everyday for posting scams and spam. I have been a member of forums where this was not applied and they became nothing more than vehicles for advertising body part enlargements, Russian girlfriends, etc.
