    Default Where is the How 2 I have completed?

    I completed a How 2 lastnight on changing the thermostat on the 1.8 VVTi however it has not appeared yet on the forum?

    Do they get checked over before they are posted??

    Thanks

    Yes the How2 threads are moderated first. I will be interested in having a look at this one.
    The text below taken from a sticky in the how2 section.

    ========================================

    Please read before posting in this section.
    This section is for members to post instructions on How 2 perform a particular task, ideally with pictures to accompany the instructions.

    If you have a 'How do I' question, please post this in another relevant section.

    Green Growler (Martin) has recently done a mass clear up of this section, so to keep it like that this section is now moderated. This means that any new threads posted in this section won't appear instantly, they will join a queue for approval. A moderator will then look at the thread and if it's relevant to this section it will be approved and will then appear. If it's not a How 2, it will be moved to an appropriate section.

    Once a How 2 has been approved and appears in the section, only the original thread starter will be able to add any further posts. A link will placed in the original post to the section for discussing/asking questions on the How 2. This will keep the How 2 uncluttered and only containing any additional posts by the thread starter.

    Thanks

    Thanks Tony

    I had some problems completing it last night, the site appeared to have auto-logged me out, so I logged back in refreshed the browser and re-submitted it. It said that it had been accepted.

    Hopefully it is there and just awaiting moderation. The job iteslf was really straightforward, it took me longer to write the How 2!!

    It's sometimes a couple of days for it to appear in the How2 section -
    It makes it more difficult having to take pictures - ie keeping the grease, etc off your camera

    When you next sign in tick keep me logged in, I've not been signed out since we upgraded to vB4 :-)

    EDIT: I've just approved your How To which can be found HERE

    One of the reasons Howto's are moderated and require approval is to make sure that the pictures are uploaded to the site and not hosted on Photobucket, flickr etc, Incase at some point the pics are deleted, therefore leaving a Howto with no pictures, which is not a lot of use to anyone..
