    Do yalls threads ever not get posted and you get that message that says “awaiting moderation” ? Cuz that’s happened to all the threads I try and put up in the Q/A section and they never get posted

    This is an automated system put in place to try to combat spam bots since we've historically had a problem with them. When new users make new threads they get put in a moderation queue for the mods to approve if it's an actual person posting and not a bot.

    Unfortunately the mod staff is basically a skeleton crew these days as forum activity is very slow with most players having migrated to Reddit and Discord, and I've been away on vacation for the past week so I didn't get a chance to check PF. Usually I try to be on top of this stuff and I approve threads by new users within 12-24 hours though, so I apologize for any delay on yours.

    Wait, everybody left? But I just got here! Serves me right for starting a game several years after its launch.

    There's still plenty of people playing, they've just moved on to more active communities than this one.

    There's still a small group of dedicated users who post here but it's a shell of its former self.

    There's still a good number of us here if you're looking for help with anything. It's also easier to ask for help here than on Discord but I can't speak on behalf of Reddit since I don't use it.
