Pending list: 982

The next user that sends me a verbally abusive PM will get banned.

This is equally (i dare say EVEN MORE) frustrating for the mods, than the users on the pending list.

guys, cut the mods a fucking break. They are almost a 1000 submissions behind, you think they are looking forward to that?!?! I really suggest that you get more audio mods, to help lessen the load.

I think it's FAR more frustrating for the mods (those who give a fuck that is) than for the users on the pending list.

Dear users,
Please stop;
-Submitting your favorite j-rock/J-pop song.
-Submitting Punk-o-Matic songs you 'made'.
-Submitting Midi rips.
-Submitting your favorite Linkin Park song.
-Submitting garage band loops.
-Submitting Acid loops.
-Submitting Mix Craft Loops.
-Submitting FL Demo Project Files.
-Submitting Copy-righted material.
-Submitting your brother's sister's mother's father's brother's uncle's music.
-Writing TERRIBLE author comments with LITTLE to NO information.
-Writing LITTLE to NO information where your samples came from.

Thanks.

and anything else I missed that you know is NOT acceptable

4 days you say? Sorry, but in my case, that's 1000% Bullshit! It's been around a month that I posted 2,
3 more songs last week, the first two still haven't been approved! Doesn't take that long to listen all fiv together, what... 10 mins of music?I've lost my patience, this waiting time is abnormal, so say those I asked before, and it'd be strange to wait another month, also annoying and irritating.
Mods, go for it!
Respect, Andy J.


If you don't like something, just don't comment.. If you do, try to be nice.

Exactly, I'd even LOVE to be an audio mod, cause I love music alot, I wouldn't mind even if I had to do 792 submissions a damn day. I approve this post, zami1

This needs to pop up in massive bold letters whenever you try to submit a song.

Also maybe record it in speech form for the dummies that can't RTFM.

They should make a system which automatically scans waveforms of songs you submitted and checks if they're from Linkin Park or not xD.

Open your eyes. Read text. Read the last couple of pages of this topic. PLEASE. READ! You're not the only one that needs to be checked.

It's been mentioned a bazillion times that the list is damn huge at the moment. (>900) SO BE PATIENT.

I hate how so many people are just so damn lazy that they can't just put some effort in reading. It's not fucking hard.

Come to think of it, you're right; they have lives too.. sorta. I can imagine that having a good 1000 people raving impatiently with their bullox in a knot can't be a whole lot of fun. We should totally have a "Audio Moderators make my life 7 times over day"! ... maybe...<>,..,<>RAWR

Unfortunately, the mods are extremely busy now and last I heard there are around 900 submissions waiting to be approved. Don't be surprised if your submission takes over a month or even more to be approved, since the mods are so busy nowadays :(.

Still, if you didn't use any copyrighted samples, didn't make the song out of loops, didn't steal the song (obviously) and didn't grab a MIDI file and just change the instruments, then you should be alright and have nothing to worry about.

so... I guess this is a useless message, but it's not forbidden to post crappy, fast, home-made failure songs?

You know, I have an account here on newgrounds where I post my "professional" music, but I also want a place to post my hyper-active songs, esspecially for my friends :D

(if somebody wants to know what my other account is, pm me :))

Can we start a new thread for new moderators? It is very obvious that we need more in order to keep up with the workflow.

The current moderators nominate and vote on who should be the next new moderator, normal users don't get to interfere with that. Plus I doubt more mods will help much, an improved system would be a better option.

How about an entire audio category for new artists. Or, a flag for all first submissions that says "New Artist" that can act like a quick report tool if the song is stolen or whatever. I think the only way to truley lighten the load for audio mods is to let the users help.

A list of abuse reports would be a lot more managable than a list of every new song that is submitted to newgrounds.

I think you should wait a bit longer than just another week to send a PM. A lot of people ,like myself, have been waiting for more than a month.

Wow. I thought five days was long! I guess I'll stop checking specifically, and just wait for an Audio tab to appear on my user page. (That's how it works, right?) Kind of sad, though. I just didn't realize the scope of the problem.

Try submitting something else, it'll probably tell you you are banned. You probably broke the rules.

Read this and consider whether or not you may be banned, otherwise, await the reply of a moderator on the matter.
