My guess is you haven't been scouted yet, and thus your submissions don't show a voting panel, or tags (apparently, didn't know about that before... which probably means it's also hidden from search results).
This is why I've always hated the art portal! It's so backwards!! I've never understood the logic behind it. Aren't unscouted users the ones that would benefit most from reviews? They hide them away like they're ashamed to have them posting here at all. Yeah, some people will abuse it and post garbage/inappropriate stuff ...they already do... but isn't that what art portal mods are for?!I The movie/games portal isn't like that. Even the unscouted audio section is visible to all... so why isn't art?
And why unscouted art isn't included in tag searches just baffles me. I know the belief is that 'if they're good enough, they'll get scouted.' But not everyone strives to be the next keepwalking. Some people just want to participate... in contests, activities, etc. Why penalize them? Why discourage people from even trying? This user only submits pumpkins. So he has to wait ANOTHER YEAR to even be eligible for scouting... even though he's won and been front paged. It's so messed up!
I had my fingers crossed that with Jazza's monthly contests going on... this stuff would change. I can only hope that it's in the works! If not...
Fix your shit, @tomfulp :P
