I'm really sorry if there has been some confusion about the new process. I hope to clarify some of the key issues raised in this post by so many of you. I'm grateful that you have raised them, so that I can address them as quickly as possible!
We have recently made some changes to who can be allowed to post on the forum. This means that in order to be eligible to post ads/schedules on the forum, you must be a verified user on either www.leolist.cc or on www.vipfavours.ch. The process to do this is currently listed at the top of each ads/schedule forum.
This change really only impacts newer users who register on the forum. Long-standing members such as most of you who have posted in this thread are not required to go through the process of proving to us that you are verified on either one of those websites before you can post and ad/schedule (in a sense we are 'grandfathering' your posting privileges).
Another change is that all posts which are ads/schedules will require pre-approval, which is why they are not immediately visible, even if you have posting privileges . This is done to make sure that all ad requirements are met, such as:
A URL to an ad must be included in the post
E.g. a leolist url - personal websites are acceptable
A telephone number must be included in writing in the body of the ad
It cannot simply feature in the images you post. It must appear as text in the post.
No frontal below the waist nudity or graphic nudity
Ads cannot contain direct or indirect sexual references
E.g. BBBJ, COB, etc.
Absolutely no mention of drug use. Zero tolerance here.
I agree with you Sophia that this process requires improvement - shortly it will be considerably streamlined, and we will eliminate this step for many users. It will reduce the actions necessary for members of the forum. However as explained earlier, you personally are not impacted by the restrictions on posting privileges anyway, but your ads (like everyone else's) will require a quick pre-approval by us before going live.
Meghan - your ad is currently hidden simply because it first needs to be reviewed. Having taken a look at it though, it wouldn't be eligible for publication since it doesn't meet our criteria (but I realize it was simply a test on your part, not an actual ad 🙂 ).
Please let me know if you have any further questions - I genuinely value the input provided from the issues you have all raised, and it's great to know that we can count on threads such as this from long-time members of this awesome community to improve or clear up our processes and policies.
