Hey guys,

It looks like new screenshots haven't been approved for close to a month. Is there anyway we could have someone take a look and approve them please?

Thank you,
Senaki.

Screenshots are approved bimonthly so you need to wait a bit more.

Its a mod thing. I guess no one has time to do it. I offered to be a screenshot approver because I noticed how slow it was sometimes but I got turned down. u_u

You were not worthy of such power.

Basically they are afraid of someone uploading porn and it impacting ad-revenue from the google overlords, so they manually check every image. The problem is the people who check the images, cba to check cause they rarely come here now so they never get checked.

I get you guys are busy with work or playing other games, that's fine but at least pick someone to do it that still likes coming here and not leave it to someone that does not.

If you won't pick someone to do something that obviously needs doing then you're lowkey saying you don't trust them.

I think the problem is that only moderators have the ability to approve them so if they pick someone else to do it then they would have to be a mod. I'm not sure if Rooks could enable someone to just approve screenshots or not. I don't really want to be a mod and not many other people do either lol

No comment on the other stuff.

I guess they would just hope people to give up posting pics in ffxiah because there are more appropriate medias for that out there like facebook, instagram, even the ffxiah discord though its almost dead there.

You can make someone a mod on an alt account and specifically tell them they are not allowed to do anything except approve screenshots. This works unless you think they will abuse it.

They really do need someone who just spends too much time here to simply do busy work like that.

Just approving pix and ninja editing people who fail [img] tags

I had to send a pm to one, i noticed they weren't getting approved for months. Then one day they approve all at once and it gets dumped and gets thrown from front

I wonder how long the process actually is. Maybe it's a huge pain in the butt. Because I don't think anyone's expecting the screenshots to be approved every day, but even once a week might help traffic to the site.

Even when I went silent for a number of years, I still checked this site every so often just to scan if there were any new screenshots or interesting forum topics visible on the front page.

I mean, really, how many pix get posted that don't get approved. No swears and no titties it should be largely a rubber stamp deal.

lol, occasionally.

One particular upload from Takomunch just before I came back had me in literal tears. I didn't even know who Oseem was, but the artwork told me everything I needed to know.

Being a mod sucks, it changes how people interact with you.

Which is why it's best to just allow someone to do it form an alt account and tell them to do nothing but approve screenshots. Then nobody changes how they interact with you and you don't have to do anything but that, and if you do they can see you did in the mod logs.

Well, i will give you a workaround:

Create a topic “Random Pictures - FFXI Related”, host your pics in a free hosting site (i use imgBB), grab the link and paste it in the new topic.

Then you managed to publish your images to the FFXIAH community without being subject to previous inspection (after that, it can still be mmoderated).
