Wait... so does your first submission ever show up in the portal, after it's approved? Or is it pretty much fated to never get a single listen?

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.

So then it's a bad idea to submit other stuff while you're waiting for approval... like I did. Oh well...

Just found this through another thread, thought it deserved a bump. Really useful information for new users, such as myself.

Thanks a lot for the info; hopefully I can get approved soon. xD

Dang. I submitted one of my best ones first, and it's been awaiting approval for a little over a week... I think. If I knew I would have to wait, I'da put my older song up.

Wow, thanks for the info, I submitted my first audio some hours ago, and I didn't knew how long it would take to be approved. A comment on my page sent me this link. Well, Patience, patience :)

You got banned because you uploaded copyrighted material. Just FYI, uploading a copyrighted song and altering the pitch, speed etc. can not be called a remix...

You remain banned till the new audio mod system is implemented. Alternative, you can create a new account, upload material that YOU created YOURSELF and try again. A usage of copyrighted material is not allowed on the audio portal.

I'm glad I managed to find this thread. I've been waiting for a day and a half now, and now I'm still waiting. I'm not upset or anything; I'm just hoping that I didn't get banned or something, because I'm looking forward to brushing up on my FL skills.

So if I'm not mistaken, and please don't kick my ass if I am, the submissions you make/do (don't quite know the right verb for it) after your first one don't have to go through such a long proces? Or is it for every song the same? Just wondering.


I dare you, I doubledare you to click this image.

After your first one gets passed, your others automatically show up. I think there is a limit of 2 per day though. And make sure they all keep to teh rulez or DarKsidE will bust your ballZ

No worries, every song I'll submit, has been/will be written by myself and played by my band. Love the sig by the way.

Thanks for making this thread, Rucklo!

I couldn't find anywhere else on NG any mention the approximate amount of time that it would takefor new submissions to the Audio Portal to be approved.

I'll work on new music while I wait. :)

Take care,
Adam Pearson

The ability to read can often be an advantage in your life...Sometimes I just wanna...ah forget it.

You're approved now. Consider yourself lucky that you only had to wait ONE fucking day. Others wait up to 2 weeks if not more.

Thanks for this thread guys, lots of good info in here. I only wish I found it sooner. I didn't realize my first submission wouldn't be on the "recent" list. Is this the same for the flash and game portals as well?

My bad, what I meant was, when i submit my first animation/game, will it need to be approved and not be in the recent list, or will it be in the recent list because i've already submitted audio? Thanks again to everyone in this thread!

Hey, just a quick question. Will there be some sort of e-mail notification once I do get validated and the song is posted? From what I've been seeing here, people have been banned without realizing it.

I haven't been waiting long at all (about a day) but I just wanted to make sure that I wasn't checking my inbox for nothing.

Thanks a bunch mods, great work you guys are doing.

No, there's no notification. You're better off checking your profile rather than your e-mail.

You were banned. As far as I can tell because you just used some FL preset loops.

"I threw a few melodies together with a simple beat quickly..."

Not really original and not really a "good to go" for the Audio Portal, since the AP is meant for music that was created by you and not just some faggy loop fest.

Well, you have two options now...You remain banned till the new audio mod system is implemented. After that, your ban will be lifted...Alternative, you can create a new account, upload material that YOU created YOURSELF and try again.

I didn't use a single loop in that, it was all original content.

I have the .flv file to prove it if you have the time to take proof that it is all original content.

Does this happen frequently, where people will get banned when they shouldn't have? And if so, is there some sort of process to go through to amend the situation?

If I'd known back then (just yesterday, but still) that none of my submissions would appear in the "New Submissions" section if I, as I did, submitted them before my first submission was approved, I might have done things slightly differently... Anyways, great thread. "it's a quick process" couldn't possibly have given me a more wrong impression and cost me some sleep last night constantly refreshing my profile page.

Sooo, my sympathy and understanding goes to the audio mods. You really have quite a tiresome job. Take your time :)

When is there going to be a system notifying people when and why they were banned? I thought I heard something about it.

I see not-yet-approved people making new threads and news posts, so I guess this needed a bizump.
