Let's hope the bots can't read.  Perhaps a disguised URL rather than a simple link could be requested, something an actual human could read.

Checking how the probationary protocol is working to date.

There are currently about 135 Probationary Members (of 235). Most are recent additions who have not posted, which is as intended.

However there are a fair number who have posted, and are thus outside the intended plan.
The posts seem to be on or before May 23. Are those posts all before the date that the current protocol was implemented? Will these Probationary Members turn into New Members simply by posting again?

Hoping to get off probation. Here, not in real life. Honest.

Yes, posting again will clear the probationary status.

Posting just to be posting -- although being a "probationer" has quite nice conotations!

Post or perish!

Have I escaped the probationary holding area?

Yes!!!

Welcome!

M.

(who deliberately uses a cap-M so as not to confuse people with your lc 'm' as a sign-off)...

Forsake the foolish, and live; and go in the way of understanding.

Reprove not a scorner, lest they hate thee: rebuke the wise, and they will love thee.

Give instruction to the wise, and they will be yet wiser: teach the just, and they will increase in learning.

I successfully posted earlier, but seem to have gone back to probationary status, as my post (on the 'animals that begin with P thread) is awaiting moderation before posting ....

I thought that post seemed familiar.  I've approved the new version; let us know if something else disappears.

Also interesting is this post did not require me to approve it; it was waiting here when I clicked "show unread posts" seconds after approving the other post (i.e., far too little time to write and post this post if waiting until the other post was approved to start this one).  Did this post mention requiring moderation?

Hi there *waves*

Just posting to get past the probationary period. I'm a reader more than a poster and had only a couple of posts on the CHE forum.

Thank you Polly.
Yes, that "p" post, and the one on this thread, both gave me a 'post will appear after moderation' type of message.

We passed a milestone today: 500 members.

250 members remain probationary.
