You might not like it, but let me assure you that it is far more beneficial to this forum than not having it. ~70% of submitted threads aren't approved for a variety of reasons such as not meeting requirements, being in the wrong forum or they're just blatant SPAM. Its far easier to keep this section of PC orderly by having moderated thread system other wise more than half the threads you would see once you logged in just wouldn't be up to scratch. This cuts down on the eyesore as well as people spamming the report button for a thread about a hack made in five minutes. Emulation is the highest-trafficked forum on PC and brings in a lot of new members who don't understand the rules so its only natural to have this system in place.
I can promise you that, if you were the mod of the Emulation section, you'd be thankful that threads didn't automatically get approved. Things would be quite messy-looking otherwise.
I can approve your thread (frankly those screenshots are amazing)- but I will ask that you have a bit of patience. It hasn't been 24 hours since you posted it, and moderators can't be around all the time to approve threads.
