- Why can't I see my post?
Posts which start new discussions go through a
quick review process, where members
of good standing check posts for anything inappropriate.
Until that speedy check is done, Anonymous Monks can't
see those posts on the Newest Nodes page.
- Inappropriate? Are you people prudes or something?
We consider this site to be a home away from home,
so we treat it as such. We have some standards,
and we try to keep our home clean according
to those standards.
- OK, so what kind of standards do you have?

There are a few options for you.
- Type the title of your node into the Search box at

unique, you'll arrive at a search results page which will
(hopefully) contain a link to your question.
- Go to Anonymous
Monk nodes and look for yours.
- Wait a bit, someone will probably approve your post soon.
Soon is usually 30 minutes. Get some lunch, take another
whack at your problem, and you'll likely see your
question when you get back.
- Log in. :)
