Long latency in moderation damaging forum timeline

When it takes 5-8 hours, or a day or so to approve content tagged for moderation, the time stamp reflects the time of approval not the original time of posting. This can make it look like the post repeats information already provided.


We really need to work on the aspects of the forum that are flagging posts, and this seems to be a ball that was dropped months ago. The forum back in December was much more permissive, now there are many innocuous things that flag posts. Can we please focus more effort on fixing these things, and making the experience for the primary contributors less tiresome?


Posting as a new discussion because the point system is broken to favour creating noise rather than answering questions with thoughtful answers.
