Moderated discussions?


Hi all,


today, I posted to a discussion (pretty sure in New to QlikView), and after send, I got following message (translated by me to english):


Please note that your answer has to be approved by a moderator, prior be posted to the forum.


Indeed, my answer didn't show up in the thread.

Haven't noticed so far that we have moderated discussions in here, is this the case?


I am just wondering because this is the first time that I got this message.

    I've never seen that message, and doubt that our discussions are moderated except potentially after the fact.  Perhaps you were posting someone different than expected?  Like maybe posting a document would require moderator approval, for instance.  I don't really know.

    Hello Stefan and John,


    Thanks for bringing this up. I'm new with the QlikTech Community team and wanted to shed some light on this conversation as well as introduce myself.


    Jason and I oversee the community as a whole and there are some embedded functions which do trigger moderation.


    We get a system generated moderation request for:


    1. New QlikView Documents
    2. Key words identified in our spam filter
      •      Title
      •      Content
      •      Tagging


    I just approved Stefan's post and also took a screen shot. I didn't see any keywords which would have triggered the moderation request here and have sent it over to Jason to help review. Thanks for your patience.


    Best Regards and keep the feedback coming!

    Today, I got another chance to get my posting reviewed by Jason


    Noticed also that my posting was sent to mail list after approval with sender name Jason Long.


    English is obviously not my mother language, but I try hard not to use too many offensive words...

    I am getting curious what in my postings is alerting the spam filter.


    Have a nice day/ evening,




    I just noticed that my approved posting showed the timestamp of the approval by Jason, but was correctly sorted in sequence of posting.

    I recently added a new Qlikview document to QlikCommunity and got a message saying that the content required to be approved by a moderator.  I dont have any notification / pending document.  Is the document being moderated or is it lost?  How can I see the status?

    My posts are being moderated again.


    I find my questions very useful for the community.


    Can you not moderate it?
