has there been any changes in policy for new members here, for example you cannot post new threads of reply to them unless you subscribe

No. There's been no change like that made.
I'm guessing you posted to a forum that has pre-moderation. Those forums take longer for the post to show up. The moderator has to read the message over and then decide whether to approve the thread or not.
