As a first-time submitter only just yesterday, I wanted you & your peeps to know I found the entire process very straightforward, very detailed, and fairly simple. I did end up making a slight goof with my submission, but received prompt and pleasant feedback alerting me and found the step I needed to take to correct my goof exceedingly simple and painless. Although I have no experience with the old process, the new process rocks IMHO. Thanks for making things better and making this site a great place to be!

Just a heads up to everybody - I've adjusted the showthread page so that when you tick the "I have finished changes and await a review" box, it now hides the checkboxes and displays a message that it will be reviewed.

I noticed that now when I hit "I'm ready for review", I get an acknowledgement screen saying someone will review my stuff. Yay! That's exactly what I wanted. Much better than it was before, thank you!

dcd15, what has your posts got to do with the context and content of this thread? I'll tell you - absolutely nothing. In future, please read the thread before replying and go to the Game Help section.

dabrooklynboi, thats becuase you have "Use old-style thread view for downloads" ticked in User Tools -> Edit Options.

This is outdated now - especially with all the new changes to the moderation screen. You also miss out on things like EP markers, recolour lists, mesh lists, thanks filtering and a bunch of other stuff.

Hello Delphy, Hope all is good Ok here what I would like to know please, when the staff send you a link to edit your upload for approval or that you need more work, and to tick the box for I am ready for you to review again. When I go into Manage Attachments to remove and add what is new for ( pictures ) I had to do my rar files over like new pictures and some touches within the inside of the lot. The problem is I could not find "Add Full Image Inline To Post." so that I could remove the old one and add the new one since I did a whole new rar file. Not there in Manage Attachments.

Right now the old one is still there within the write up link Althose it still look the same as the new one I wanted to add the change. I have already tick the box for review again. But I would like for the lot picture to show up above my text first. When I finish the editing everything was there, but where the picture should go that I wanted above the text it was empty with a Red X in the box.

What should I do to add the new Add Full Image Inline to post, so that I can remove the old one or will it matter since they both look the same? Or will the numbers for it be different? What should I do ? Thanks for your time I hope I am making sense here.

Simonut,

you can always add pictures manually: copy the URL of the pic you want (e.g. "http://thumbs2.modthesims2.com/img/1/7/8/2/8/2/MTS2_plasticbox_788639_NewbieRoad_134_TopDown-1.jpg" -- the one that starts with "MTS2_$username", NOT the one that goes "MTS2_thumb_etc"), then add an IMG tag with Insert Image (the little postcard icon above the text field when you edit your post) and paste that URL.

Add Full Inline Image is something that is only within the Upload Wizard - it's nowhere else on the site. Hence why you couldn't find it. So you'll need to follow the instructions given by pb

''On the thread screen, you now see a list of the Changes Required reasons appearing above the download text.''

Ok im well confused. Normally if the thing im uploading gets rejected my initial responce is to just resubmit that thing through the normal 'Upload your creations here' . So basicly from step 1 again.

I dont get this whole being able to review it as Ive never been able to look back on something if you have denyed it, so in theory it just gets deleted and i am told about changed that need to be made then do the changes that resubit it again like its a new project.

So I dont really know where any of these changes take place in the moderation queue.

Life is a curious game..

sinniti, this entire thing is talking about the changes required part of moderation, not the rejection part - hence the title and the first post.

In other news, we've added a "Suggestions" box that allows moderators to seperate out "helpful hints and suggestions" from actual mandatory changes, and reworded things somewhat.

Hmmm...I did go through this when uploading a set recently, I had to fix my snapshots, which I did, and then I ticked off that it's ready to be reviewed by a moderator and everything, and I haven't heard anything after that for 5 days now...is this normal?

I'm completely confused as well, but that's nothing new for me! I just hope the new changes mean I can talk to somebody through PM if dealing with a Changes Required sim. I got so confused during one submission about what exactly I needed to fix that I gave up in mental exhaustiong! LOL! Anyway, thanks for always trying to make communication better here. I do appreciate it how you folks are always trying to make this place more efficient and organized.

summersong, no, the new changes mean you can talk to somebody via the Other box - I think you'll find it's much more streamlined now.

I like the idea, however, what happens if you don't make it to moderation queue? Like my sets that were rejected because they wanted them to go into creator feedback. (The sets were Modern Orient Bedroom-chalet breeze, Modern Orient Livingroom - chalet breeze and Modern Orient bath-chalet breeze) I combine them into one creator feedback posting, waiting 19 days before getting anytype of response, finally contactor Hysterical Paroxysm and she looked into them and approved them. I uploaded the living room and bath the same day she approved them, but due to a glitch on my end I had to redo the screenshots for the bedroom which I then upload the sets the following day. The next day they were rejected again because they had to go thru creator feedback. Meanwhile I had already put another set (New Haven Bedroom-Sping into creator feedback, which I am still waiting for feedback or approval to upload, it has now been 9 days. No I won't complain frustratingly...but I really don't think this system is working???????/

The system itself works fine - Creator Feedback is totally seperate from the moderation queue and there are no guarantees or limits on the amount of time that you can wait for responses there - it's not part of the queue.

Thats... not very helpful Ailias. (And off topic, too). This system is designed to help feedback between creators and staff, hence will actually speed up the system in some ways. You can't just "speed" people up - we already have guidelines on how long things take. Be patient.
