It's almost time for another major US holiday and we're trying something new here at MetaTalk this Thanksgiving: a post queue.

Like most MetaFilter sites, new MetaTalk posts are added without any moderator approval. If the post breaks the guidelines it's removed or closed after the fact. This works well when mods have their full attention on the site. But mods are humans too and they like to eat turkey with their friends and family. So from Wednesday to Friday this week, MetaTalk threads will require moderator approval to appear in MetaTalk.
This is a first test of a moderation queue that we plan to use around holiday times only. As always, the contact form will be available and folks will be around, but latency might be higher than usual. If something in the post requires immediate community attention, the thread will be posted. If not, a moderator will contact the poster about why their post wasn't approved.
Thanks for your understanding, and happy Thanksgiving (if you're into that).
