Hi there, I'd like to know why a post I sent for a live C64 concert in Kickstarter was not approved on the news and events forum. Some other kickstarters were there posted... is there any special reason why the post was not approved? I wanted to spread the word for this great event.

If it was something wrong with it, I'd like to know so I won't do it again.

Thanks!

That forum needs mod approval for all posts, same as the competitions one, probably nothing was wrong with your post at all.

What I meant is that it never got approved (kickstarter ended already), so I guess something was wrong with it...

Probably mods were just too busy to look at it, even replies need approval in these sections. The moderator activity levels have dropped recently, you can see sales threads and, etc are not getting moderated too.

Sometimes things can get missed but if you have a problem and nothing seems to be getting done PM a Mod or a member of the Admin team.

Unfortunately, we all have real lives to contend with as well as volunteering to manage AmiBay.

In my case I had a few days away over the weekend and returned to find 340+ new posts which I will work my way through eventually.

same for me, it would be best to contact a staff member for help,

just over the last few days dealt with early bumps, generic questions , new signups (on the increase), fixing threads without a prefix, closing or modifying, most of this is done without the member knowing, just magically fixed :D

but we cannot sit at the PC all the time....

there are a few regular members here that "highlight" problems and issues for us to deal with, the report button helps us deal with an issue quickly as it's easy to overlook a small issue when reading over 300 posts.
