Contribution with +50 votes not approved

Hi all,

I submitted my first contribution, got some suggestions (most of which I implemented), rest of the comments were positive. I got +50 upvotes, but after the 30 day period it hasn’t been approved, and now it says that the system has automatically rejected it.

I don’t know what I did wrong. Is there any way to fix this, and how to prevent it from happening again?
The contribution is called ‘Stranger Things’
Thanks for your help.

Are you able to republish it? All contributions have an approval period of 30 days only.

Hi 5DN1L,

yes I can republish it. Do I copy everything or is there a republish mechanism?

It will be republished with all existing comments.

cool! thanks @b0n5a1 , how do I do that?

As far as I remember, just resubmit it as is.

Ok I made a small textual change and Sent it… I hope it is enough and I don’t have to type everything again

You published it as a WIP, so nobody was able to approve it.
Now you have to publish it as a ready contribution.
(and for next time, you don’t need to wait the 30 days period to switch from “WIP” to “ready”)

If you’re talking about this one : Even Stranger Things, it’s actually not published because it’s “private”.

Oh, and also upvotes ≠ approvals @Woega

Well, for the infamous :japanese_goblin: TROLL VS :japanese_castle: CASTLES :european_castle:, 650 encouraging upvotes were not enough to let it leave the WIP stage… :slight_smile:
Its author must have quite high internal standard.


JBM thanks you for the link (I guess)…it will let him have more XP with this “social experiment”.
