There is no art submitted by you in the queue at this time. Please resubmit if it's not already in the database. Thanks.

Yeah, I think one of the EB team members added The Flaming Lips one on the same day I submitted it.
Thanks. I know there are lots of posters to get through.

I added a print to the system on Thursday nite & I still can't find it. I did notice that my pin changed from gray to green, but I still can't find the poster. Thoughts?

correct. the art approvals has been backlogged lately, theres a TON of submissions to be approved, most of which have to be edited to be correctly formatted first. we appreciate your patience!

Nay. But submissions with properly sized images and correct title format and print details will get uploaded even faster.

Very true, very true. Honestly, outside of two members of the staff (myself and bigdz who runs the EB Store) no one else is privy to what donations are made or in what amount. The only viewable knowledge is that you may or may not have a contributor pin.
Ryefish is dead on - we've been talking about the how and why and difficulties of many submissions made to the site. If they have oversize images or those that need rotating, cropping, etc. If information is vastly incorrect or incomplete. If it's submitted with no bands, artist, title, etc. These things will make a volunteer taking some of their time on approvals pass over a submission in favor of those which are more detailed, have a good image, and are generally just needing to have their details confirmed and checked to make sure that it's not already in the database. The more work that has to be done... the more time it will likely sit in the list.

i thought the size of the image wasn't an issue....just as long as it was focused and cropped.

what's the recommended size of an image when submitting stuff?
