I just joined and after posting something it didn't show up on the front page, so I posted it again thinking it hadn't worked the first time and closed the original post for "duplicate". Then I got an email saying the new post had been deleted for that reason. I then tried to unclose the original post and it wants points or something??? Please help!

As a new user of this site, you have only one point of karma, and it requires more than that to unclose a question. Just be patient, ask good questions and give good answers and soon you'll be a registered user (your posts won't be moderated) and you'll be able to do more here.

I have up-voted this question to give you some karma! But 11 points might not be enough to un-close the question. Could you provide the link to your question. I'll try to open it. Just post the link to that question below as comment.

Hi. Welcome to ask.fedoraproject.org

I just joined and after posting something it didn't show up on the front page,

A question by new user will go the moderation queue and it wont show up until approved by a moderator.

I then tried to un-close the original post and it wants points or something???

Again this is to avoid any spam. Users are awarded Karma based on their contribution. Higher your karma, more rights you have in the forum.

Could you provide the link to your question. I'll try to open it.

Usually when a question is closed, it mentions the user name of the user / moderator who closed it. You may try contacting him/her or simply comment on that question and they might help you to reopen if required.

Not just might, will. All questions, answers and comments are moderated until a moderator decides to change your status from New User to Registered User.
