Everytime I post I get a message about being moderation mode either b/c I've got a new account or I've violated policies of CreativeCow.net. Can someone look at my account and see if I have in fact violated policies or why this is happening? My account has been around for at least a couple of years is that still considered new?

About a month ago, you edited your account and changed the name that you had been using since you originally signed up. Every time anyone changes their name or their email address, our mechanism automatically puts the account in moderation and sends a reactivation notice to their address given; the notice contains a link that they must click on. The reason we do this is due to California's strict opt-in/anti-spam laws. We also do it to catch spammers who make one good post and then change their name and/or email and try to put their free laptop or mail-order brides posts all across our boards.
Sorry for the inconvenience but it allows our boards to be kept as high signal as we can make them.
Your account is now active.
