Tigris has been running an older version of CEE for a fairly long time
now. It was upgraded to the latest version in early December. In the
intervening versions a new Discussions system was created in CEE that
unifies web-based forums with mailing lists. The previous ezlm
mailing list is no longer part of tigris. Obviously the migration was
supposed to be smooth and mostly unnoticeable, but that has not turned
out to be the case on tigris. There are a lot of old usage patterns
that are not working the same.

I believe this is being worked on. There is a notion of a "trusted"
poster whose messages do not need to be moderated. Subscribers that
do not have a tigris account are not getting this bit. The moderation
system ought to allow it to be added, but it does not currently. It
can be set via the web UI. So if you want to go back to your old way
of using tigris, I can probably find your subscription and make you

There is some hope that this might finally be addressed. With all of
these other problems we've had to absorb, we are using those as extra
leverage to elevate the priority of this.

I think once you do this you will become a trusted poster and not need
your posts moderated.

Yes, we discovered it was doing this last week and reported it. I
believe it should be fixed in an upcoming patch.

I still cannot find you in the list of subscribers. Try going to this
page, which let's you edit your subscription settings. Uncheck and
check again if necessary to subscribe.
