Are you sure that's the right username? According to the mod panel, TheCoastGuards, CoastGuards, and The CoastGuards are all nonexistent usernames.

Yeah i know, im sure its CoastGuards but the next day it just dissapeared, pretty weird right ?
So i gues il just make a new one then ..... Im positive it was not a dream :P

Odd indeed... I would have suggested you could have made a typo... but if the validation email says "CoastGuards" specifically, I don't know what to say. Generally the only time accounts ever get deleted is when the person behind the account has caused undue stress to the community or staff members or is an alt created for the sole purpose of trolling or spamming.

Judging by your demeanor here, I highly doubt the above is the case... So that really only leaves me to assume something bugged out when you created your account. Maybe shoot Tom a PM asking about it...
Although I wouldn't get your hopes up for a prompt reply, with the redesign 3 days away, he's a real busy dude. And his inbox is practically full even when it's slow.

Afternoon,
I've been waiting eagerly for almost two weeks for my voice-demo to make it through the grinder, still no response. Could I get the status on it, please?

I'll check your file, but you could do with learning a little patience. It can take anywhere up to a few weeks to get approved because of the number of submissions we have to go through.

I wasn't rude with you, so I feel like you're projecting some unnecessary negativity. I've waited for approval on the audio portal before on other accounts, and it never took that long. I was just making a simple request, and clearly it wasn't much of a hassle. Thanks for approving my songs, for real though.

Hi, I'm newer to posting on the site, I've been a fan of newgrounds for years and I recently wanted to start posting my music, and I have uploaded a couple tracks already. I was just curious when I can expect them to be approved.

Sincerely,
Ryan :D

Hello!

I submitted my first audio loop "Whacktivism" on January 25th. It has been a couple weeks since I submitted it, and so I'd like to request for it to be reviewed for approval.

Thanks!

I am a little confused as to whether I've been approved already or not. I resubmitted a reworked version of a song on this account after being banned on billing-support due to a copyrighted sample.
Today I saw that the song suddenly appeared on my profile (on this account) where it had not appeared before, so I assumed it got through and I was approved. I went on to submit another song I'd been working on in the meantime, however it still hasn't shown up in the newest submissions list after half a day, neither do both songs show up in the search.

Also, for some reason the song that got me banned on billing-support has suddenly shown up and also got a few listens, however it's also not showing up in the search. Also I can't edit the description or do anything with it because it keeps telling me I've been banned from publishing audio.

So pretty much I have no idea whether I'm approved and why the song is showing up on my other account even though it's been banned.

There has been a major change to how the approval system works (And more changes coming), now, the second you submit a track, it will show up on your profile regardless of your approval status, but it will not be in the actual Audio Portal, meaning you won't be able to find it in any genre you list it as, nor will it be searchable or in the New Submissions list.
This is to ease up the pressure on the audio mods, allowing us a bit more breathing room to deal with Audio Portal issues while new users can still show off their music while waiting to be approved to have their music put into the audio portal itself. Once you are approved, your songs will show up in their respective listings on the audio portal as well as show up in searches. If you are banned, it will never show up on the audio portal, but will remain on your profile and you will be unable to submit anything else nor edit the submissions that got you banned.

As for the songs you've submitted on this account, I just gave them a listen through while typing this out, and I've approved you, so your songs for this account should now show up in the Audio Portal itself.

Hi again. So I think I need to have some extra approval or something, or else the track got messed up in the system somehow. Even though I've done all the stuff I can to properly submit the track and make it live, it still is not appearing. Searching by name or tags, trying to find it in the lists for the past 2-3 weeks, doesn't allow me to find the track.

Maybe I'm missing something... but there isn't an audio FAQ that I can find with details for how to figure out this issue. This is why I didn't think it was approved, since it is still only relegated to the direct link.

Any suggestions for how to resolve this would be great!

Your submission states that the drum track is by another author on vgmusic.com. Please bear in mind that MIDI rips are not permitted on the audio portal. So, you'll either need to show us that you recreated the drums, or come up with an original drum line.

Hi. I submitted a track almost 3 weeks ago- waiting for it to be approved (which is completely fine- I know all you guys are very busy). But- one day I came and saw my song on my audio list, with like 5 views and 1 download, which led me to believe that it had been approved. So- I've added two more songs, which didn't show up, which made me even more confused.

SO- I was just wondering if I could get them approved somehow or if someone could just let me know how long that normally takes. Thanks!

Ok, thanks for the clarification. Although, I do use Guitar Pro for my drum tracks, so the end result will be midi anyway... x D
