"Why was my post rejected?"  
[Please note: if your post was rejected, feel free to correct whatever mistake you made and submit it again.]

[Please note #2: If you don't understand any of these/need clarifying, do not hesitate to ask.]

I figured I should just write a post and direct people here rather than typing out the same answer repeatedly.


01. You do not have the correct subject line in your post

I ask for people to put a particular phrase in the subject line so that I know they've read the rules. If you don't have it in your subject line, I reject the post by default no matter what it says.

02a. You do not have the correct category in your post

A lot of the fandoms I am familiar with, but not everyone else is. I also need to know which post to file it in.

03. "But I tagged what category my claim is in"

Saying in your post what category your claim is in is mandatory, tagging is not. If people want to tag, they can, but they don't have to. Tags can be added or removed by any member, so it's important to keep all the info I need in your post.

04. "But I saw someone with another claim that didn't have a fandom listed"

For actresses/actors, they usually star in a variety of things and I don't list a fandom for them anyways. for musicians, if I know that they only do solo work I let it slide (if I'm unsure, I will reject it.)

05. "The mod keeps rejecting my posts, they must have a problem with me"

(Not a reason your post was rejected, but I figured I should add it anyways)
I do not pay attention to usernames AT ALL when I'm going through and approving/rejecting posts. I don't really have the time to keep track of usernames and go ~omg reject this person 4 lyfe~
If your post has been rejected multiple times, I'm sorry (for srs.) I try to not reject people more than once (usually between two posts they get everything right), and if I DO reject your post.. feel free to submit it again. If you're unsure about any of the rules or why exactly your post was rejected, feel free to ask.

(that's it, for now.. I haven't had to reject many for any other reasons)

Non-related to the original post, but question anyway: is anything going to happen in this community other than intro/"I am" posts?

Nope, that's all it's for. everyone still has to be a member, they just don't have to add us to their f-list.

That's okay! It'll be rejected, but you can feel free to submit it again (no mistake can't be fixed, lol)

If your post was rejected then would they[the mods] PM you to tell you that it was rejected?
ferrars on May 27th, 2009 01:23 pm (UTC)
To tell you why it was rejected... so you don't make the same mistake twice.

Yes, you may repost.

Why was my Freida Pinto claim rejected? I thought I did everything right. What did I do wrong?
ferrars on January 31st, 2010 07:12 pm (UTC)
Sorry, I'm not accepting new members at the moment. I just posted any entry. Hopefully your person will still be available when I open up again.
ferrars on January 31st, 2010 07:35 pm (UTC)
I just checked and you're a member! Go ahead and resubmit. SORRY!

Cool! I kind of wanted to switch to someone else anyway :)
