• Effective immediately we will be deleting, without notice, any negative threads or posts that deal with the use of encryption and streaming of scanner audio.

    We've noticed a huge increase in rants and negative posts that revolve around agencies going to encryption due to the broadcasting of scanner audio on the internet. It's now worn out and continues to be the same recycled rants. These rants hijack the threads and derail the conversation. They no longer have a place anywhere on this forum other than in the designated threads in the Rants forum in the Tavern.

    If you violate these guidelines your post will be deleted without notice and an infraction will be issued. We are not against discussion of this issue. You just need to do it in the right place. For example:

Seems I'm on only my fourth or fifth post but I'm still getting a "wait until moderator approves" on them. The message it keeps saying it applies to the first three posts. How long before I can post in the regular way?

The number was changed because spammers were getting smart and posting a few relevant appearing posts to get past moderation.

When you made the post previous to this one your account auto-upgraded.

Thanks for the info. I don't think I could get smart enough to be a spammer lol, I can barely post on one of these internet forums!
