    Suprised you can see them, but I might change that system soon anyway as the user authentication in 3.7 is much improved.

    carpo, i only see one message from ming there that is already approved.. There is also one message that you deleted, but I'm assuming you can't see the deleted message.

    edit:
    If you are trying to approve the message from ming, it would show an error message since the message has already approved.

    edit2:
    as far as I know, visitor messages are treated like regular posts - in that regular members are able to post visitor messages without needing to have them "approved" but non-members (or members still waiting for their first post) still need to have the visitor messages approved just like they need their first post approved.

    The better question may be why users have an approve option in the first place on the visitor messages..

    So they are auto approved?
    I need to go thru all the options for every usersgroup and standardise them but there alot of options and it gets very unexciting very quickly :D

    you should get some admin's that don't stop coming to the site a little after they are made admins.. *cough* *madmatt* *cough*

    *runs away*

    j/k.. i still talk to madmatt on IM once in a while.. life and work for him has pretty much occupied all his time.
