Approving the posts in the only way they can be locked. The point is not to examine them for violations or some such before approval but to lock the posts in a similar manner and for the same reason the Survivor Story posts get locked prior to posting. The idea being that this is to be a forum where you can state those "light bulb moments" or your victories that mean so much to you, and they can stand on their own without them being diluted or hijacked by other discussion.
Of course if you want feedback on your "Progress" you are free to post it in the "Survivors" or other forum for which it is on topic.
