The Submission Limit System and Auto Unapprove system have been completed and now implemented. Below is an explanation of what each one accomplishes.
Submission Limit System
This allows us to set a cap on how many submissions you can have pending at any one time. Once you reach the limit you will not be able to submit anymore songs until some of them have been approved. There is a counter in the top right that will let you keep track of how many you have pending as well as their approval/rejection status.
Your current submission pending limit can be found in the top right bar to the left of the notifications.
If you click on the Pending text it will drop down a window similar to the notification window. Here we can see that my first submission of Megalovania was removed or rejected. If it is removed or rejected you will get a private message about it from an SSR Member with a reason.
For the most recent submission we can see it has a flag, this means it is still pending approval and has not been touched yet.
When an submission is approved the flag will be replaced with a green check mark:
You are able to click on the song title and it will take you straight to the submission. The list will only show about the most recent 15 submissions, if you want to see previous ones then you can click on "View All" to see the entire history list.
Here are the current group limits for submissions:
- Default Group Limit: 8 Submissions
- Composer Group Limit: 10 Submissions
- Retired Staff Group Limit: 10 Submissions
- Pro Group Limit: 12 Submissions
This system also helps us to keep the submissions pages mixed up instead of having one user across 5 pages in a row because they were submitting many at once. But aside from this it also helps us and our staff keep the queue in check instead of letting it get to upwards of 600 submissions pending.
Auto Unapprove System
We now have an automatic unapproval system. This means that when you edit certain fields in your submission that require a manual check or intervention from the SSR team that the record will unapprove (be hidden) until it has been checked and updated.
Yes, this does mean you no longer need to report your post for an update. The system will detect that certain fields have been edited and notify us automatically for an update!
The following fields will always unapprove a post temporarily for reapproval:
- 3MLE Save File Uploads (MapleBeats)
- MML Code Box (MabiBeats)
- Recommended Instrument Choice
- Piano Roll Preview (Pro Member Option)
If any of the above fields are edited in your submission after approval then it will temporarily unapprove it until it has been updated by us.
