    It's a matter of you're a new member and when you post links in your messages until you reach a certain post threshold (3 or 5) it goes into a queue where it first needs to be approved as not spam.

    There's a very short edit window right now - people were using edit to get around some of the spam prevention mechanisms. Michael is working on a solution that will apply the edit restriction only to new users.

    That's good news because the edit time limitation is very annoying.
