Yet again I'm curious of something; it says that we ought to PM a mod after two weeks asking "what's going on" if not approved within that time. Just want some clarifications on that. Does it mean that the mod will look through your music skiping the line, or does it litterally mean that the mod's just gonna answer "what's going on" like "the list is long, takes time.. etc"?

Like that probably. Maybe with a little criticism attached too.

How do you know if someone is an audio moderator? Do they have some sort of tags??

Exactly. We aren't going skip ahead and approve people because we'd get 1000s of PMs asking which in self would be like processing submissions they way we are already.

Sweetness. Why don't you guys promote/request promote Loans and Mich? They know their stuff enough for audio approval. Actually there's probably a grip of people that would be up for this task, however from my experience so far they seem to be the most active forumwise/helpfulwise.

Maybe a slight hint of critisism, though only due to my impationism (yes i make up words :P)
but i was mostly just confused and now i got the question answered and now i feel content :)

i had submitted an audio file and the way the page was worded it made it seem like it would be up that day. im glad i checked the forums before i started complaining! i had no idea there were hundreds waiting to be checked... er... processed... lol. intense. good thing yall look at everything, else there would be some serious spam of crappy audio files.

Lol I don't think the screening process is helping that.

BTW, I uploaded Tails (Fuck you Sonic) last night..

Still waitin'. I know it's good, and I know you mods probably don't think a newgrounds member made it.. but rest assured I only created a newgrounds account to upload it.

I have sent my submission in a week ago, I think, and I haven't gotten any kind of confirmation.
I was just wondering if I got banned.

It's a little like "MLIA". You submitted something from Thanksgiving, and then at Christmas you start seeing the Thanksgiving submissions, then New years you start seeing the Christmas submissions...

Things just go nuts. I'm just glad I don't have to deal with all that crap. :P

Sorry Lemon :(


This too shall pass

Hey guys, little update for you:

We kicked the shit outta the list this weekend. Went through about 200-300 submissions. There are STILL about 200 left so PLEASE BE PATIENT!

I can tell you this: If you have submitted a song BEFORE
1/31/2010
you can check to see if you've been banned or approved.

anything AFTER that date, you are still being processed. So the 2 week window for the approval process is back to normal. QUIT BITCHING!

A suggestion for the first post (assuming the topic post can be edited): You should have a FAQ in teh first post since I see a lot of people frequently asking the same questions over and over, including myself when i first posted here. By having a FAQ it would make it a lot easier, especially for the mods spending so much time just answering questions already answered.

usually new artsts submissions won't get showcased in the "latest submissions" list, since it goes by order submitted there. and since it normally takes a few days to get validated, your spot at that list is long gone. all submissions after validations will show up however.

^An old post, I know, but the thread is still going, so:

If my first submission is accepted, are there any issues with deleting it and resubmitting it so that it shows up on the Latest Submissions page?

I don't see why there would be any issues by doing that. O.o but then again I might be wrong

I found this post and have read through a few of the pages. It looks like response time has been greatly varied. I submitted my song 4 days ago and haven't heard anything. It's no biggie, as I'm sure you guys were busy over the weekend, but I have a couple other songs I would like to get up this week, so just wondering where I stand. Thanks for your countless time spend listening to terrible songs like mine!

:D
