Tried to post in "off topic" section, got some odd behavior

Fri Jun 18, 2010 9:08 am

Howdy,
I just tried to post a new topic in the "Off-Topic" section, and it was pretty weird

1)I got a basic compose form - it has subject and body and that was it. There was none of the formatting text options (color, bold, link, etc), and my "options" were limited to... "Do not automatically parse" and "Notify me..." instead of the normal 5 options. Additionally, after I submitted I got told it needed mod approval before it will be displayed. Is that a change in this forum? Is there something wrong with either that topic or my account? Or is this the way it is, and I just need to deal with it?

Not (really) complaining, really just asking the question.

I posted a thread in the OT and it said it had to be approved, which it was a couple days later. Clearly OT is set up differently.

Yes - but I compared the setup for offtopic forum and others. Atleast for my view they were the same. May be admin has other options ...
1st Leaf : 2/28/2011 to 5/6/2013
2nd Leaf : 5/4/2013 to 3/21/2017
Volt : 3/25/2017 to 5/25/2018
Model 3 : 5/10/2018 to ?

Looks like you can't post to OT threads... it says the posts have to be approved, that's not much fun. If an admin is reading this can you move the thread I recently started to environmental issues or something? tx
