Last night I tried to post in the workshop area about how to remove the gear stick gaiter
The post was not authorised due to it not meeting the requirements of the section posting rules, I didnt get an explanation why, I thought it was a work shop question and could figure where else it would go
I also get a message after every post telling me that the post needs moderator approval etc....
Is it because I am not fully subscriber / paid up or something?

I have tried to search the FAQs etc... for the answer but possibly being too thick to figure out why every post needs moderator approval

Hi, the answers to your question are in the Orange Box at the top of the Workshop section.

Copied here:

Forum rules

When you put a new thread up in the Workshop please put your car's year and model in the title, along with just a brief indicator of the problem.

Car Year - Car Model: Brief description of issue. EXAMPLE- 1999 9-3. Problems starting when hot

Please also add as much information as you can about the problem, to your post.

This will help us to help you, without having to ask basic details such as what car you have.

Threads with non-compliant titles will be moved to The Pit Lane (in which no replies can be posted, but the OP can edit the thread - upon which the thread will be released to the workshop forum)

Nb. Generic thread titles for truly generic issues that genuinely are not model or variant specific (such as "how do I change the spring in an forge wastegate actuator") are acceptable

**The first 5 posts for new users require individual moderator approval (which they will only get it if they are in line the rules of the forum). Please be patient and allow time for that to happen, and avoid duplicate postings.**

The 5 post rule for new users is an Anti SPAM measure.

Your post was more than likely not approved due to not stating the year and model in the title thread or in the text.
More often than not if you have included the model and year in the text of your post we will edit your title and approve, or move it into the Pit Lane.
But if its not contained in either it will not be approved.

Think you know it all, it's a sure sign you don't.

Self righteousness is for the narrow-minded.
