    That will depend on when the moderation team are available to review the thread. I know that this won't be an overly positive answer for you, but there's no definitive timescale. I'd hope that it should be no longer than a couple of hours (unless you post in the early hours of the morning, say), but there's no certainty on that. You should get an automated email notification once the thread has been reviewed - hopefully you'll not be waiting too much longer!

    Why? This thread doesn't have any specific details that would link back to the thread in question.

    I guess so. But may be the thread in question has some specific details that link back to OP. I dunno, I just would.

    I wish there was something that I could do! Unfortunately where a thread passes to the moderation queue it needs manual review before it will appear on the site. If it gets to tomorrow and it's still not been reviewed I'd suggest posting a thread in Ask An H&R Moderator to chase on the status (include the thread title).

    I gave up and tried to solve my problem alone. Luckily I managed to do it! So that means I dont really care about the thread anymore, it will still be interesting to see how others would solve it though
    Thanks for trying to help anyways!

    Ah, that's good news then - at least as far as it can be!

    On a similar note: Can moderators see username or email address for anon posts? i.e. is it anonymous even to mods
    If the mods have powers in the section where you're posting using the anonymous function (I.e. in the Health and Relationships forums) then yes, we can see usernames. We never reveal the identity though of people who post anonymously and nor do we ever judge people for it.
