Ive been waiting for about 9 days now, and just wanted to make sure there wasn't an error or anything. I know some people have had to wait longer than this, but I'm just paranoid...

Question: I added 4 songs at once(well not at once but 2 a day because you cant do more than 2.)... because I have been working on all four for the past maybe 4 days maybe. And I added them at the same time. I guess they are all pending... if you add more while some are pending will that take a longer period of time? Or just 4 days like if you added one?

I've been waiting almost two weeks now, and it could take up to a month?

Ok......Uhhhhh, I'm just hoping my submission didn't get banned. I used a beat made by war-spawn and Yun, but I had cleared it with them prior to using the beat for recording and finishing the track.

Hello.

I've been waiting almost two weeks now, could someone perhaps give me some sort of status or how long it may be?

Thank-you for your time.

Submitted a loop over two weeks ago, but not uploaded anymore yet as I've been waiting for approval. Messaged an audio mod a couple of days ago, still not heard back.

yet somehow you managed to miss the fact that newgrounds audio portal is NOT an mp3 filesharing site... which mean, you're not allowed to submit songs by Blind Guardian...

Do read the links in my initial post.. :-/

If you'd read the terms of the contest a bit more thoroughly, you'd know that you could post a link to your submission here, so that you can get your approval fast-tracked.

Yeah, I missed that part before, but it actually got approved quick enough, so that I was able to make the deadline.

TO THA MODERATORZ

It would be way uncool to assume songs are stolen because they sound professional. You know they make music identification software for this sort of thing? You might already use it, I dunno. If not, check it out, it might make your lives easier.

Here's a link to one, there are probably better ones if you look for them:

http://www.wildbits.com/tunatic/

BY THA WAY if you'd approve my submission (Jumble III) soon that'd be sweet. It's clearly too weird to be stolen...

Thanks for all the hard work guys!

It's not that simple. There are hundreds of new artists awaiting approval. It can take anywhere from 2 days to 2 weeks.

Just be patient and we'll get through the list. :D

You should be able to do it if you have any DAW on hand, but it will still sound like crap. WMA usually goes around 40 kbps as opposed to around 300 with mp3, so I reccommend recording into mp3 from the beginning.
Still, if you insist it can probably be done with almost any audio editing software.

I've gotten a response that the process averages "two weeks" for most new artists
Week one is almost over. I may not be able to provide sexually attractive pictures or things of that matter, but I'll bake some bad ass cookies for a mod if they can bump me through the main gate =D


bust out the towel, its gonna be a wet one

Two weeks? Damn. Oh well, beggars can't be choosers. Although, regardless of how many people need reviewing, more are joining every day so I guess it's more like a 2 week backlog than a 2 week process. Review a seventh of the new submission queue every day and you guys will approach efficiency! ;)

I think that generally if it takes more then 1 week, it is because you have been banned. They don't send you an email, or change the message on the audio that has been banned, so you as a user a quite oblivious to the fact that your song has been banned. There are a few things that constitute banning, I think the most common is reusing someone elses audio in your own (such as playing guitar over a copyrighted song) or doing midi copies and replacing the instruments.

I was banned a couple months ago for submitting a cover of a sonic the hedgehog song, it wasn't a midi rip, but I spent a lot of my time getting to be almost a perfect recreation, so yeah, that kinda thing gets you banned.

I started a new account and submitted my original work, and got a song approved in 6 days.
Hope you get approved or get an answer!

If your third week is coming up, I bet would be a good idea to start PMing an audio mod or two (listed on the FAQ linked by the original post in this thread). However, I wouldn't bug these guys until then.

These are the 5 most recently active audio mods on the forum (from what I can see):
jarrydn
Jonas
poxpower
Rucklo
TMM43

When almost three weeks go by, it would get ridiculous. That is enough time to lose interest in this site as well as miss the opportunity of spending your time in a different music community. As far as users being blacklisted without receiving a notice, if it's true, the possibility of waiting and never knowing is also a turnoff to caring about Newgrounds.

Also, if you have been approved in the last day or so, post how long the delay was. Seeing only people post who are waiting might make it seem worse or more mysterious than it really is. :)
