Moderators to approve each post?

Are moderators going to approve each post every user makes? Or is it just for the first N posts? And what is N then?

I made a reply in this thread:
viewtopic.php?f=2&t=191

It has not been approved? Why?

Edit:
The post is there now - THANKS!!! And I my posts are now instantly showing.
Still waiting for my DM42 - really really looking forward to receiving it ;-)

Just the first few, as a means to prevent spam accounts.

Ok, I can understand that. I'm the founder, owner and admin of another phpBB based forum, for danish amateur astronomers: https://www.astronet.dk/forum/

The key to keep out spambots, is ether as SwissMicro does here, or more easy, make a good Q&A. I am using the latter, and spambots only gets through 1-2 times a year.
