Dear RealityRipple,


Thank you for your recent upload of your In The Dark for FireFox
Unfortunately your upload has not met our guidelines and has been rejected.
However we do look forward to your future submissions.

Sincerely,

Items rejected are called exiled.  Exiling means the item is being removed from the site for infractions of the sites guidelines

If an item is rejected please refrain from posting questions about as to why in the forums, as generally these types of posts and answers can be embarrassing for all involved. You may PM a Mod and request a reason or help if you did not already receive an email detailing the cause of the rejection.

Tips on uploading can be found here.

 

It'd be nice if there was a list of Mods somewhere. Or if PMs didn't go unheeded.... Or for that matter, if the rejection reason would be mentioned in the E-Mail.

BTW, I think what you posted above was meant to be private and may be taken down by a moderator.  Private things should stay private. It's part of the TOS..

Thanks for that, but none of them have been online in 2+ weeks, so how am I supposed to contact them?

Edit: The site seems to have glitched and said 11th when it now says the 21st for WOM's last activity.

There's nothing worth being private about. They gave me no information, and I'm not asking for a reason here.

Quoting RealityRipple,

That's not so. They each are online daily. Info onsite that tells when they were online last is inaccurate. These guys are here every day of the week, and sometimes even on weekends.

Choose the first link I gave you, scroll to the bottom and then:

 Click PM, after their name, leave a PM (Private Message). Keep that message and response private.

 

Or click email. PM is best.

Read the Terms Of Service. ( http://www.wincustomize.com/terms-of-service )  Better yet, post a private message, or email contents, in the forums and eventually a mod will show up and explain why you don't do that. Good luck.

If you send a pm, someone will respond. I have sent pm's several times to mods and got responses.They are around, very busy, but around.

 

How did you determine they have been gone for weeks by the way?

By the profile "Last Activity" field, of course. That's what that field is supposed to be for...

My work was already accepted by Addons.Mozilla.org. I just resubmitted it here because they had a 3 year old version on this site. If they don't accept it, I'm going to delete the page and remove my mirror-link to this site. I don't have time to deal with a second set of reviewers who think they know better about Mozilla than Mozilla.

I guess you was able to upload the theme only because "Firefox" is still present in the SelectGallery\Submit page

but I cannot see anymore the Firefox Gallery in the Explore All Galleries page

probably the Firefox Gallery is not more in use as the last entry was dated 2008

Isn't FF having tremendous problems with the last two releases?

Dunno about that. FF22 was just officially labeled "Safest Browser" after Chrome's spotless record was destroyed by a Flash exploit.

Pretty much which is why I don't use it anymore. It kept flagging WC as a potential hazardous site. Yeah right!

You got your mail?

Actually I just "updated" from the old one's page. Didn't bother to glance at any of those gallery lists. All I'm interested in is updating a dated mirror. It's starting to look like I'd be better off without this site as a mirror, though.

ok you used the "edit" button trying to update the theme actually due to the rejection also the old page is not more available

in the end you can surely delete the mirror to the Firefox Gallery

btw the email is pre-compiled nothing personal and no details

Well I mean your old Firefox theme page cannot be accessed anymore

and I was able to provide the link to the Firefox Gallery only because I'm firefoxmaniac (the link was in my Firefox 2 legacy portable)

We are a good bunch most of the time,we just were trying to head off a nasty end is all. Stick around , be patient, this is a good place to share and also get stuff.

 

As Frankell commented, the emails are generated responses. Could just be some simple reason for rejection, or, as stated, embarrassing to post publicly, maybe not to you, but not hurting someones feeling in public is consideration, not lack of attention. Send the pm, fix the issues, resubmitt, let us see your work man.

 

Stardock has their own guidlines, every site does. Cheers DT1.

It can, you go to the Home page, hover over explore, scroll down to the bottom of the list, hit customize, check FF, now you see it on mouseover of Explore.

 

The list you see is customizable, you choose what you see.

RealityRipple, you'll have to either meet the WinCustomize guidelines while you are here, or move on. Your choice.  

 

We'd love to have you here, and I can assure you that the mods have reasons for their decision, only they can tell you specifically what that is.

As was said to you by a mod, via email, I presume from your quote in the original post, this (forums) is NOT the place to have this conversation.

No it doesn't. Sounds like how you got excited and wrote without thinking but now you are a nice person.
