This is kind of trivial, but on your 'Personal Experience' page of the non-fiction section, it has a typo when you click on someone's work. At the very top of your computer where it lists the tabs currently pulled up, personal experience is spelled 'ersonal Experience'. Like I said, it's trivial, but I figured I'd mention it anyways.
I'm afraid I don't have an answer for you. The office is on vacation this week so I have no one to ask ^^;
I can tell you that the delay in approving them should be unrelated to your submitting process as all images go to the same place.
It sounds like you gave us an incorrect address, which means we were unable to get your copies to you.
Please email alex (at) teenink (dot) com with your full name, address, and the months you were printed in, and I will get everything to you as soon as possible.
Thanks for pointing that out! I'll let our programmers know. :)
I was wondering if Teen Ink's users can send you an email to appeal for a VIP status ourselves? I know the requirements for the VIP status are to be active on the site for a long period of time. Some VIP writers I know have contributed seven and commented on one forum and have received the status, but I have yet to become a "VIP writer" although I have written about 15 posts and commented on a couple forums myself. Just wondering! Thank you so much for your time (:
I'm afraid VIP status cannot be applied or asked for. It's something that's awarded for multiple reasons, and posting is only one of those.
Keep being active on the forums, upload lots of your work and you'll get the badge soon enough!
I was wondering, about how long does it take for the comments with links in them to get past the filter? I know it's possible to have a comment with a link on it, because I've seen them.
I deleted one of the pieces that I had submitted for publication. It seems that when I do this, the poems that I posted before the deleted one get "stuck" in the queue (I had a similar problem a while ago and it was in the queue for well over a month until I deleted it and resubmitted, causing it to be published literally a day later). However, I don't have a copy of all the currently pending poems, so I can't delete and resubmit them. What should I do?
I've got another question. (Sorry 'bout that.) You know how when you press the enter key what you're writing moves down a notch, but when you press the shift key then enter, it makes a smaller bump down? In the forums it's reversing that. It's confusing because I have no problems on the main page, it's only in the forums.
I'm afraid it's not my department, but I've been told comments with links take much longer to get through as they must be read by a staff member, whereas other comments go live immediately. I can't say how long that will be exactly as it varies week to week.
My advice? Don't post links, especially since off-site links aren't allowed. If you need to link someone to a piece of yours, tell them the name instead. Your posts will go through much faster!
In answer to your other question, I've heard through the grapevine that we may be working on a new forum format, so nothing is likely to be changed on this version. Just don't tell anyone I told you ;D
I don't have a fix for you yet, but I will ask the staff about your problem!
I will advise what I say to everyone; keep external copies of your work! We'd hate for you to lose something you worked hard on.
It's actually okay now. It took a lot longer than usual for the two pieces to go through, but it wasn't too bad of a wait. Thank you though!
Thanks Mod, I appreciate your help! I'll keep that in mind when I'm commenting. And don't worry, I won't tell anyone. ;)
Yeah, it's me again. I just posted two replies on an RP, and neither of them went through. I posted the first one last night, and the second one just now. They weren't very long (I've posted longer before), and I didn't use any bad words or language. Could you please tell me what went wrong so I can stop doing it? Thanks again!
(Do you know how weird it sounds to say,'Hey Mod'? Mod just sounds so plain. However, I was about to call you TIM. TIM=TeenInkMod. Anyways.)
Just curious, but is there a character limit to a forum post/comment? i've seen some pretty long ones, but was just curious if the forums followed character guidelines like writing submissions do.
Archy: Yup, there's a limit. Posts can't be longer than 10,000 characters.
Hello, Mod! I was just curious as to how long it takes to get info after signing up for the student advisory board? Thanks!
Hello, Mod! I'm sorry if this is a repost, but my computer is not showing that my first post went through. I was just curious as to how long it takes to get info after signing up for the student advisory board? Thanks!
I was wondering if Teen Ink has links to other literary sites and magazines that hold writing contests? I tried to enter one from a magazine, but I can't since I'm a minor.
If you tell me which thread you posed in specifically, I can check that for you. ;D
