Hi all,

Just joined up to the forum and posted my first query in the 'PIC Microcontrollers - Software and Hardware,' section. However I notice my post didn't appear. Why is that please?

you may know the answer already, but we currently have a moderation process that means the first post or topic you make has to be approved by a moderator or administrator, so it was simply sitting in the approval queue.
The reason we do this is to detect and deter spammers from taking over this place. It's a process that takes some time and work, but overall, we believe it's well worth it as it keeps (most of) the junk off the boards.

Hi Erik,

Thanks for letting me know, I in fact just got my approval email and realised what was happening :)

Thank you
