I haven't been waiting for weeks on end... But i have been waiting about a week.
And I'm just curious as to when I'll get any feedback regarding my submission(s).
Both are very much my own work. I don't buy that we are waiting for a mod to listen to make sure we aren't ripping anything off when "Cleanin' Out my Closet Freestyle" (275933) exists...

Not bitter, just looking forward to contributing.

this really sucks.....ive already posted about four people up and i waited about two weeks now going onto my third....ive pmed a lot of moderators and only got one reply which didnt help.....and its getting a little ridiculious.....i mean i know im being impatient....but ive done a lot just to submit one song......i guess eitheir one of two things....one moderators are "overwhelmed" by all the submitters....or im just being over looked cause im a noobie sending in stuff that might be "copyright" but the thing is i know its mine and want ppl to listen to it.....how long must i wait just to get one song is kinda sad compared to all the ppl who DO send in B.S.

i know im just complaining so....sorry for wasting time.....

I think that it could be much better if we had some kind of "Submission status" on our Audio Submissions panel.

Something like: "File --- Status: Awaiting for approval / Online / Removed / Rejected"

That would ensure us that our file is really being evaluated and that our submission was really done; coz when I check on my panel It looks like I never even tried to upload my file, and that I will also never see it online.

Could a mod or someone check out my submission? I made the whole song and it doesn't ressemble anything out there... or basically I just have to wait 'till I can resubmit again?

Well, it's been a week since I submitted about three things, one of them being a remake of the first thing I submitted. However, I'm more concerned about my 3rd audio track getting submitted. I have waited for about a week and to no avail. just wondering if a mod could come check me out? oh, and I also submitted a new song just now. It's original, or at least to my knowledge.

Jeez people, I don't want to be a dick, but if any of you have been paying attention there actually are a lot of submissions waiting to be approved, and yes, the mods do actually listen and check if there's any stolen content in them. They're volunteers, don't get down on them.

So please just calm the hell down and wait a bit like the rest of us. Once you're cleared, you're cleared, so it's worth it. Just be patient.

Because there are (last I heard) about 500 people like you with the same problem. There's just a huge waiting line. The audio portal is gaining more and more new artists every day and the audio moderators have to deal with that. They do that without getting paid, so you better be happy they're still willing to do it.

Also, you check if you're banned by trying to submit something new. As it's been a month, there's a good chance you got banned.

Will you get banned from using movie quotes in your music. I've been thinking of using some quotes from 'IT'. I am not sure about the facts, but will the artist get sued to sampling others music but does not plan to make profit from it?

Don't kill me for this sort of "Bump" post, but it would seem this should be a sticky thread or something, since the forum still seems to be being flooded by posts about "their audio not being submitted the second i posted it because i'm a whiny bitch who is impatient and inconsiderate of other people actually having a life" thread. Though i may have been paraphrasing. lol

I'm doing the same thing atm, making more tunes while waiting for approval. I can wait, It just makes me nervous not knowing if I'll get approved or not, I mean, yeah my work is 100% my effort but...mods aren't perfect so..I still get a tad concerned about it.

If you are concerned that the mods will ban you when you did make everything yourself, make sure you just give enough details about the production in your author comments, that helps the moderators figure out whether you made it or not.

Just posted something a couple hours ago, now to wait and see. Hopefully I won't have as bad luck as some people. (No offense.) 100% my work so I should be good unless they are deaf hahaha.


If you wish to change something, do it! Don't sit and whine about how you can't.

Hello, i was just wondering, but i posted my first song i made like yesterday, it's pretty decent to my opinion, but it's not in yet, maybe it's too good to be a first time song? lol, oh and i posted another one today, hope i didn't get banned for some reason ._.

and i saw the whole new song list cycle trough whole. It's pretty annoying. Thanks for any help.

Yah, I was approved a few days ago!
Thanks!

But I do have few questions on what I could upload.

What are the grounds on playing sheet music from other popular artist with your own instrutment? Is that grounds for termination or what?

I mean if I play king of the road on my trumpet and upload it, will I'll be gone for good or am I stressing over nothing?

Sure, give credit to the original artist and you can do that

Hm. I just now realised that the file name for my music has "By DrunkenOrc" in it. Because DrunkenOrc is my account on the site I originally started putting music on before I decided to change to NG. However I can assure that I am, in fact, the creator of them. Is this going to be a problem? Is there anything I should do?

This could very well be a problem...
Um you can try to prove its you by sending me or another mod (depending on what sequencer you use) the file you used to make the song...that would be proof enough.

MESSAGE TO ALL

PLEASE be patient...the list takes some time to go through, so please be patient.
Thanks

Alright. Is it possible to send files over NG? How should I send you the file? And, I'm assuming that sending the file for only one of the songs would be enough. I use Ableton Live so I can send you the project I used to make one of the songs I submitted.

Not to whine or look be impatient or something, but we (this is a joint account) just submitted our first track - Rise of the Empire, and if an audio moderator can validate it within an hour or so, that'd be very convenient!

Sorry, we're in a bit of a hurry right now... I understand the process takes from a few days to a few weeks, but if you can validate it for us within around an hour or so, it'd be great :). Thanks, and sorry if I'm not allowed to ask for validation or something. If you can't validate it within an hour, it won't be the end of the world, and I'll stop bugging you and be patient :P.

Sorry to say duder, but we can't just approve audio because someone asked. You must have a legitimate reason, like if it was for a contest (ie pirate day voice acting contest).

Other than that your submission will be processed in the order it was received. Please be patient!

Alright, sorry! It's just because a friend of mine's waiting for me to show him the song today, since tomorrow he'll be going abroad for the weekend, and he just wants to hear it before he goes. I suppose he can wait till Monday then ^^. I'll shut up now :P.
