if the problem keeps happening let me know, perhaps it's time to disable the new-post-needs-approval thing.
I realize I'm quoting a fairly old message, but it looks like I'm having the same issue: I've written around 4 between posts and replies by now, and I'm still being told they're going to be moderated. Is there anything I may be doing wrong? Thanks!

I think we've upped this to 3-5 posts because spammers were catching up, but there is also something weird going on that prevents some users from being whitelisted. Luckily I know how to manually lift the moderation requirement for them (by removing them from the 'newly registered users' group).

I'm sorry, it's cumbersome, but better than a forum full of spam ;).

No problem at all! Thanks for the clarification, the threshold for minimum number of posts makes sense.

Hi

I'm a 65 years old newbie on Linux.
Live in the north of Sweden

Tested various distros and the only one I got my
Focusrite Scarlett 2i2 and Tracktion 7 to operate
with really low latency was Ubuntu Studio.

So that's what I'm using

Here is a small test from yesterday evening

Hi,
On the first post, there is this link:

Clicking on it result is:
Page title: “404 Not Found”
Page content: “Not Found
The requested URL /doku.php was not found on this server.”
Could you fix it (in a way or another)?
God bless you.

Thanks for the heads-up! We don't have a linuxmusicians.com wiki anymore, so I have removed the link.

Was it this information https://wiki.linuxaudio.org/wiki/newbies?

Who knows how long they are still online.
I hope that all this does not disappear!

Hello Nathan and everyone else.

My main academic computing interests have been in applying remote sensing and spectral image processing in plant pathology. Over the last few pass-time I started learning to make some of the music I love, using the Ableton Live DAW in OSX on my old Mac Pro cheese-grater.

However, like many people here, I am increasingly sceptical and concerned of the direction Apple, Google and Microsoft and their 'big data' agenda are going. I am currently away from my home for a while and have been configuring my 7 year old Asus Zenbook UX32a laptop run Manjaro KDE, with Bitwig Studio. It was realising that Bitwig was analogous to Ableton and ran natively in Linux which lured me back to have another go at Linux after some 6 years.

So far almost good :| ; but I'll save my thoughts and queries for the right threads.

Hi Nathan and all here in the forum!

I'm Paolo, from Rome, Italy. Currently use Ubuntu Studio 20.10 on a Toshiba laptop made in the 2012 (4GB RAM). I use Ardour with the JACK/ALSA server.

Hi Nathan and all here in the forum!

I'm Paolo, from Rome, Italy. Currently use Ubuntu Studio 20.10 on a Toshiba laptop made in the 2012 (4GB RAM). I use Ardour with the JACK/ALSA server.

Years ago I was a Unix programmer (SunOs, Solaris, Digital Unix) and of course I love Linux and Open Source moviment.

I use a very cheap audio interface (a chinese USB not more wide than an USB memory card) and a simple Klon Centauron clone:

Impulse Response convolver <- (KPP TubeAmp LV2 plugin) <- Ardour <- JACK <- ALSA <- LinuxPC <- Klon Centauron clone pedal <- electric guitar

I'm currently involved in a personal project, a sci-fi graphic novel and I'm composing all the music.

See you here!
