hey @fivetwelve ,
sometimes our akismet spam protection gets a little overeager. If you are new around here, it is especially sensitive and will flag posts that contain a lot of text, images, links to the same site etc as likely spam.
When that happens, the post won’t appear in the forums until a moderator (likely me) gets a chance to review the post and unspam it.
I realize this can be a bit annoying but we do think that having as little spam as possible makes the experience better for everyone! the best approach is simply to spend more time here and get a little bit of user reputation! that goes a long way in informing the robots that you are legitimate and not trying to sell knockoff viagra or fake watches
