Waiting for a long time :(

I am waiting since long for my post to get approved by a moderator. I have made two posts so far.
1. in newbie section for seeking help in repairing my gnewsense installation.
2. in the introduce yourself section

Please help, i am having a hard time here. Need help to resolve my problem.

How long will it take before my post is viewable by all in the newbie zone.

Also, where can i view the status of my post which is in moderation queue?

The first post a member makes is subject to significantly more checks than subsequent posts and in a very small number of cases a legitimate post is put into the moderation queue. They are usually addressed quite quickly, and your post has now been approved. Welcome to LQ.

thanks a lot.
Since it has taken almost 9 hours to approve my post, it has gone totally down the page. Thus, reducing my chances of getting help.
I have checked for like 30 times in the past 9 hours, franctically waiting to see if my post have come up.

please help me out here if you can.

If you cant. please let me know if i can bump it or can you please make it go on the top.

For what it's worth, posts without are automatically bumped if they have no replies after 24 or 48 hours.

Auto bumping of threads with no replies.
I didnt know that. Great feature.

Only 9 hours?

LQ mods are probably all over the world, do you really expect 24/7 alert?
