I’ve tried 3 times now to upload a post with pics showing a completed project. Frustrated at this point… not sure if its because I’m a new member? or what. I am able to upload the pics (although get error msgs on this also, lets me on the 2nd try of each pic) and type in subject header and message but when I click to submit the post it gets me to an error page. Any help would be appreciated.. my computer and connection is fine. Thanks! – Nate

This is what David, (Patron) posted a few days ago:

you can download them directly
from your computer
by clicking the img button
(at the top of each comment place)
and going thru your picture files
( do make sure you have a place for them to land)
as they will show up in the middle of whatever you are writing
when you hit the load button
go to where you want them
and put the flashing bar there
they will land there
then you can add more
or keep on writing
you might want to edit them
so they are less than 3megs
or they will take forever to load
if at all
since martin gave us this help
nobody used outside servers much anymore

The first (and so far, only) project I posted apparently required a moderator’s approval prior to actually posting to the site. I suppose its that way for all first projects posted.

It could be something else for you, as it was clear to me at the time that I just had to wit for approval. I’m guessing they don’t want inappropriate pictures being posted.

I know this is kind of an older thread, but I’m having similar problems. I joined this site today and tried to post a project and got a “You cannot post a new project until your first post has been reviewed and approved” message

Am I to assume that the project I posted is my “first post” and was submitted to someone will review and approve/not approve it? Just curious how long this process takes?

I also can’t create a forum topic and get a similar message before I can even type out my topic, it just bouces back to the main forum thread index… My topic was basically going to ask the same question. In all the getting started documentation it says you can “Jump right in and post a project”. No mention of needing to be approved and what not. and if someone just wanted to participate in the forums and not post a project, how can they when it won’t let you?

I guess I’m a little confused.

since these new member ‘checks’ have been initiate
(to weed out scams and spammers)
that part has been upgraded

but i’m guessing some older formats have not yet

with so many members
there is allot for the staff to take care of

in time it will be straightened out
please bear with these wranglers

Figured that. Doing a fair amount of webdesign myself I know how frustrating it can be with fake signups and spammers.. Looking at the “newest jocks” part of the site I can see they get A LOT of those :/

Just doesn’t spell it out very well in the documentation. When I saw a project posted from someone who signed up today after I did, I thought maybe I did something wrong.. and in the “my projects” part it says 0. Would be a nice feature for new members to say like 1(pending) or something just to avoid confusion.

Thanks for the info. This seems like an active, helpful, friendly place to be!

not sure what the issue is re: uploading the photos… I’ll check into it
As for waiting for approval, yes, we’ve had to add that step due to some, well, not so nice photos being posted as well as spam advertising.

The “welcome” message has probably been an oversight. I will add that to our list to fix. Thanks for pointing that out.

I will also check into the approvals of those who are still waiting. It’s usually within a day (except weekends).

I sincerely apologize for reviving an old thread, but due to the problem I’m having this seemed like the best place to put it.

I joined LJ 17 days ago. I’ve made several posts & attempted to upload a project several days ago. I understand that the first project takes a while & I’ve been patiently waiting to see when it would post but nothing yet. Not a big deal since I’m sure whomever reviews these types of things could be very busy at the moment. However I thought I’d try to post a 2nd project in case something went wrong with the first (even though I got no error messages). For the 2nd project it told me that I couldn’t upload a project until my first post was approved – which it was quite some time ago & I’ve posted several messages since. I got the same message when I tried to start a new topic in this forum – hence this post being located here. Could anyone fill me in on what’s going on?

Looks like you’ve done almost everything you need to do. Maybe there is a backlog in first-post approvals and Ms. Debbie and crew will help out. Or is it because you still haven’t submitted your new member dues? It was there in the small print when you signed up – 10 cents per member per post. (What, you thought A1Jim was churning out thousands of welcome emails out of the goodness of his heart?)

You can make my check out in pesos please, I’m going to Nogales this weekend…

That seems to be part of the problem, my first post was approved just not my first project. I seem to have lost privileges I had yesterday.

That’s even odder. You seem to be going backwards on permissions. Have you tried sending one of the admins a PM?
