pete will become famous soon enough
We have installed a new forum add-on to prevent newly registered users from posting new threads to the wrong forum. Recently we have seen an increased number of code specific questions being posted to the main forum or the CFD Wiki forum instead of to the correct code forum. The newly installed add-on will require that all users who have made less than 5 posts confirms the selected forum before they can post a new thread. Once a user has posted more than 5 posts this extra confirmation step will not be necessary and the forum will work just as if this mod was not installed.
