Just thought I'd add the typical reasons why your submissions may not have been yet accepted.

If your review falls under any of the following categories then there's nothing we can do until it does not:

Quote by PiCSeL

It might happen because of:

1) This CD is not released yet
2) We're waiting for proffessional review first
3) Too much reviews pending
4) I can't find info about the subject of review
5) smth else

PM me with title and category of your review, please. I'll check it and tell you the exact reason.


Thank you.

Hi guys. I submitted a review for a CD over a month ago, back in January. The 29th, to be specific. Usually my reviews are accepted (or in some cases, rejected) in a prompt and timely fashion. But there has been no word on this review yet. It is for "In The Halls of Awaiting" by Insomnnium. The Sunday after I submitted the review, I submitted a tab which was approved within a day.

I'd just like to know what happened to my review, and whether it will be accepted or not. Thanks.

At current we only have one review for Insomnium, which can be found here:
http://www.ultimate-guitar.com/reviews/compact_discs/insomnium/above_the_weeping_world/index.html

First I suggest you check to make sure you've spelt it all correctly as, in your post, you spelt it wrong.

Goggle says the album was released in 2004, but we still don't have a professional review done. If we're waiting on one then it might take a while longer. The band are not exactly mainstream and thus of little importance in reviews. However, for the same reason it might not need a professional review. Give PiCSeL a little time to handle it.

Aye, my mistake. I thought that something was spelled wrong, but I was typing through my phone so I couldn't be arsed to double check. But I didn't need to worry about double checking when I was submitting the review, as I selected the band name from a list. Oh, and you spelled Google wrong

Also, Since The Day It All Came Down was the album that was released in 2004. I plan on doing a review for that one soon. The review I submitted was for their 2002 debut release.

I understand that it isn't of much mainstream importance, but then again, neither was It Dies Today's debut EP or Dimension Zero's last album. However, both of those reviews were accepted pretty quickly.

I PM'd PiCSeL about a week ago or so, but I didn't get any response.

I just don't want it to end up getting lost and forgotten, that's all. It's not even on my contributions page anymore.

I submitted a lesson on sweeping technique (not the other three) and it hasn't been accepted yet.

PICSel told me to PM him the title and category, so i did, but I haven't got any reply.

The lesson is on this forum, and I submitted it as Learn to Sweep Technique.

Also I was told that the three lessons would be approved weekly, and the third hasn't been approved yet either.

whats up?

When did you PM him? Also, when was your third lesson due? Because PiCSeL has been out of office due to illness recently... that might explain why your work hasn't been reviewed on time.

I sent in a review for the DVD "Church of Tiamat" by the band Tiamat around January 3rd or so. It has retained the status of "Waiting" ever since then.

In that exact period, PiCSeL has been ill... so I guess that is the reason he didn't get to review your work, and right now he's probably still working his way through the pile of work that accumulated while he was gone.
If you must, you can PM him again (he'll be here this time!), but probably just waiting is enough...

Google provides plenty of info, but at current we have no reviews for it here.

My guess is likely backlog. Since it's a 2005 release I doubt we're still waiting on a professional review.

Hey! About a little over a month ago, I submitted a review for my guitar. Its a Peavey Mystic. And it still hasnt been approved yet. I was just wondering why it hasent been approved yet. Usually my other reviews got accepted between a week and two weeks. So if you could try to check in on that....that would be nice.

I recently sent in a review for my guitar, a 2004 Schecter Tempest Semi-Hollow 1. I put alot of work into it, and i was just wondering how long it usually took to be approved? I don't want to come off as selfish though, and i don't mind waiting.

i tried to submit it about three weeks ago, and something must have happened, as when i tried to submit around three weeks ago it never got checked, and randomly vanished from my contributions list. i put in the review for a second time last week i believe (i could be wrong, it has been a real confusing two weeks for me)

Alright, I submitted a review of Lewis vs Clark's CD "Selah" around a month ago. I PM'd PiCSeL, didn't get a reply. Can I assume that he's either working his way through it after his recent illness or the band is too obscure to warrant a review?

I had a review submitted, for an album (CD) it was about 3 weeks ago, now

"My So Called Knife" by Lollipop Lust Kill

Thanks!

Hey, I've got a few things really.
I submitted two reviews last month for some bands that aren't that well known, and as such didn't have a category already. A review for Brazen Bull's S/T EP and a review for sleepmakeswaves "In Today Already Walks Tomorrow" EP. It's been over a month for the BB review and a few weeks for the SWM review. Just bringing it up 'cause I was worried they might have gotten lost in the mire.

Also, this is a different thing really, but my review for After The Burial's "Rareform" CD got accepted and put up twice for some reason.

Thanks.

I don't doubt that he's behind in stuff due to his illness, but I've PM'd him twice since last week about the lessons he said he would approve, and I haven't gotten any reply, or approval.

Is there someone else who can approve them, or what?

sry if that came out negatively

It looks like this guy is the latest addition to the article approving team... Maybe you could PM him, and ask him why PiCSeL isn't responding, as well as linking him to your contribution?

And you don't come of as negative or rude or anything, as long as you keep in mind that the team is doing their very best to keep everything up to date. Nobody would ignore your submission on purpose...
#24
Magero, There are no review for Brazen Bull, so submit it again if you want, and I'll approve it shortly. Sleepmakeswaves "In Today Already Walks Tomorrow" - approved. Thank you for telling about that bug with "Rareform", fixed.

I submitted a review last week I think for the EMG KFK set. There's a "W" next to it when I look at my profile. That means it's pending, right?

Damn
I was hoping the BB one would accept, because I forgot to save it first
Did it just not send? Like, come up blank or something?
Either way, thanks for getting the other fixed

Instrument Reviews Bass: Gibson: EB-3

Instrument Reviews Acoustic: Guild: D46

These reviews have been up for close to three weeks. There also seems to be a problem with the listing for reviews where each of these would be posted. I reported that in another Forum thread on site problems.

Hi UG,

I submitted an article/ review to UG of Overloud's' 'TH1' some weeks ago ...and the current status remains at 'W' (waiting)?

Could you please find out 'what's up' as the software has had a recent 'feature update' that I'd like to add to that review?

Many thanks in advance.

Regards,
Richard

cleptobismal: lesson "Learn to Sweep Technique" - approved


Thanks, there's also another lesson that was supposed to be approved named Learn to Sweep pt 3

PiCSel said the three part lesson would be put out one ate a time every week

also, could you make the headlines bold and yellow, that's how the other lessons are done. And in the beneficial tips section on the lesson you already approved, the second tip I hyphenated was supposed to be a bullet, could you possibly drop it down a line or two.

sry if that didn't make any sense...

Dear 'Articles' Admin,

'Happy to amend article as suggested re 'TH1' ...but as the HTML article was edited direct onto the proscribed PAGE, as such ...I don't have a "back-up" of it, to reflect on the comments made ...or to edit it (i.e. there's No Link just a greyed-out 'D'.

Could someone please send me a copy via the internal email? ...Or to my registered email address?

Many thanks.
