First topics and trust in Discourse vs Akismet

There seems to be an interaction between trust levels in Discourse ( and Akismet hiding first posts for review by a human (

So, now that I’m somewhat trusted, I’m wondering what to do next, about my hidden post:

  • wait for it to unhide automatically
  • wait for it to be reviewed
  • ask for it to be reviewed
    • if so, how
  • repost it


Edit: I don’t know whether it’s rude to invoke the admins by name, but waiting does not seem to have worked for me.

@sampson, could you please confirm that someone is reading the posts which Akismet blocks, to decide whether to unblock them and, if mine is to stay blocked, tell me why, please?
