What does it mean?
When your post is moderated, it is no longer visible in the feed for your community because it has been removed. If your post is removed we will send you an email explaining why and you'll have an opportunity to Edit and Republish your post to earn back credit. While the post remains in "Moderated" status, you will not earn credit for it.
Why are posts "Moderated"?
Packback is your safe place to be fearlessly, relentlessly curious about what you're learning, and our guidelines exist to make sure that the discussion stays valuable, interesting and inspiring for everyone in the community. To make sure any questions or answers you post do not get moderated, please review our full Community Guidelines here.
How to edit & re-published your post
Re-publishing your post to earn your full participation points is simple. Check your email or your notifications to find the notice of your post being moderated. Click the Edit and Republish this Post button and make the necessary edits to your post. After making your edits, click the Save & Republish button. Your post will always retain the same timestamp as when you originally posted so as long as you edit and republish before your posting deadline (or whenever your professor pulls their grade report), you'll still earn your full credit for your participation! If you fail to edit and republish before your posting deadline, you risk not being able to receive credit for that grading period.
If you have any other questions or concerns, feel free to reach out to firstname.lastname@example.org!
