Please do not post the same thing multiple times. The board software automatically flags certain posts as needing moderator attention. This happens the most often for new users. I'm pretty sure this is made clear at the time you attempt to post. Posting the same thing over and over again just makes that many more posts the moderators have to weed through later. This makes us sad. Don't make us sad. If your post/thread doesn't appear, just wait a while. Don't post it again. If it hasn't shown up by the next day, then you can try again. I normally go through posts in the mornings, and try to check a few times throughout the day, but I'm not here 24/7. There will typically be a significant delay before posts are approved. Just be patient.
Announcing the new iPhoneDevSDK, running on Vanilla Forums
No more worrying about malware issues, site suspensions, etc.
Easier management for moderators and administrators to keep the community healthy and happy.
We know there will be some kinks to figure out over the next few days, but our hope is that this will provide a much brighter future for the community as a whole.
In particular, I think there are some great new features provided by Vanilla that were not previously possible in vBulletin:
Badges, Reactions, and Reputation: You now have the ability to earn badges and reputation points for participating and posting insightful, useful, and otherwise awesome comments. These badges and reputation points will be used to help other users know exactly why to trust you and your posts. There's also Reactions, which allow you to share feedback with others. You can help the community keep abusive members and spammers out using the Spam and Abuse reaction.
@Username: Just like Twitter, you can now call attention to a particular user by @Username-ing them. For instance, you can do @iseff to mention me.
Notifications: You can now visit your Profile and set fine-grained controls on when you should be notified: replies, mentions, bookmarked discussions, etc.
User Walls: This is a new one, and I'm interested to watch it work. Just like a Facebook wall, every user profile now has a Wall. You can post messages to users by placing it on their wall (and others can see). Hopefully this will help the community engage with each other and build great relationships.
I hope you thoroughly enjoy the new forums, and if you have any questions at all, please do not hesitate to ask me directly via a private message.
