new FAQ -- why am i unable to post in a community?

putting this up for general review; the next person to do the smackdown can then add it. :) FAQ76 will need to be altered to remove duplicate info and link this in the further reading section.

TITLE: Why am I unable to post in a community?
CATEGORY: Communities
SORT ORDER: 87 (or 90, and then make the last one 95)

There are several different reasons why you cannot post to a community. You should first make sure that you have joined the community you wish to join, instead of just adding it to your Friends list. Most communities do not allow posting by non-members, and as such, you will first need to join the community. Once you do so, you will generally be able to post.

If you have already joined the community, it may be that you do not have posting access. If the community is not listed in the "Posting Access" list at the bottom of your full userinfo, but is listed in your "Member Of" list, then you will need to contact the community maintainer and request that you be granted posting access.

If you receive the error "Maximum queued posts for this community+poster combination reached," then it means that the community you are trying to post to is moderated. This means that a community moderator must approve your entry before it is added to the community. If you already have an entry in the moderation queue, you cannot post another, and you will receive this error.

Similarly, if you receive the error "Moderation queue full", this means that the moderation queue is full. Up to 50 entries can be in the queue at one time. Until these entries are cleared from the queue, you will be unable to post to the community.

If you recently created a community and are the maintainer, you will not automatically receive membership or posting access to your community. You will need to grant yourself access to the community before you can post.

If you recently joined the community and are trying to post from your downloadable client, you may need to log out and log back in so that your client can recognize your posting access to the community.
