Reasons your post hasn't been published!

Quiz Post.jpg

We're all getting used to using the Hub at the moment, and some of you will notice that your posts aren't being published. Read on to find out why.

We won't publish...

  1. Posts that repeat an idea that has already been talked about. Make sure your read all the posts first. If someone else has written about your idea, you should COMMENT on their post and join the conversation.
  2. Posts that are one sentence long. Posts should be longer and more developed. Perhaps a paragraph of ideas, or some research (in your own words) with a question. If you have one sentence to add, write it as a comment on a different post.
  3. Posts that aren't about the Issue. We keep all conversation focused on the current BNC topic!
  4. Posts with pictures from other websites. We can't use any photos that we don't own, as they don't belong to us!

We LOVE reading your ideas, so please follow this advice and keep them coming to win some stars! You can find out how to win on the Hub here.

REMEMBER: YOU ARE JUST AS LIKELY TO WIN STARS ON COMMENTS - SO START OFF THERE BEFORE YOU WRITE A POST!

    When you write a post, does it need to be factual or can you include some opinions?

    Opinions are great! Make sure you write your reasons to explain why you hold your opinion. Also, we welcome more creative posts, like poems, stories, pictures you have drawn or videos (all about the current Issue)!

    Hi methodical_engine! Thanks for your enthusiasm. Unfortunately, as that's not on topic this time, you won't be able to. Perhaps in the future it'll be linked to one of the BNC issues that we are looking at, so it might be a good idea to wait a while and see if this happens at later date!

    You're right, I posted one in the first few weeks of term when everyone was getting used to the website. Now, I think you've learnt so much about Myanmar that you'd write a great post or add some fantastic comments on that topic! We'd love to hear your unique voice on what you've found out about in your sessions.

    Of course. How about entering this week's weekly competition? You might be able to win a star there. Or, you could tell me why there was a financial crisis in 2008 and explain as clearly as you can!

    Reply to this comment
  • Olivia-Avatar.jpg Olivia @ the BNC 4 weeks ago in reply to beloved_chocolate's comment

    If they're linked to the financial crisis, then yes - especially if they have examples to support your point.

    How long will it take for a post to be published? Only mine has been waiting for approval for about 2 or 3 days now...

    Reply to this comment
  • Olivia-Avatar.jpg Olivia @ the BNC 4 weeks ago in reply to content_lemon's comment

    Usually posts are approved the same day, unless it's a weekend when they may take a bit longer. If your post hasn't been approved, it might be because it was too short, or repeated an idea that had already been discussed.

    Hi lovely_sealion, thanks for taking the time to write a post! Posts are usually approved during working hours, so between 9.30 and 5.30, but occasionally can take longer, especially over the weekend. As you wrote your post in the evening, it won't be approved until tomorrow.

    Is this the same with comments? And what do you have to include for your comment to be approved, and I'm very sorry; I'm having lots of problem, but my comment on the Weekly Competition has not been approved....🙂

  • Olivia-Avatar.jpg Olivia @ the BNC 3 weeks ago in reply to content_lemon's comment

    At the weekend the BNC team aren't on the Hub, so you might have to wait until Monday for comments to be approved if you write them after 5pm on a Friday!

  • Olivia-Avatar.jpg Olivia @ the BNC 3 weeks ago in reply to attentive_perspective's comment

    If you've read this post and think that your submission fits the criteria, then it might just be because it's the weekend! BNC HQ don't go on the Hub on Saturdays and Sundays, so be patient, and hopefully it will appear!

    Hello, I checked why it was rejected and found that your post repeated something that was already written. Posts should take some time to write, perhaps you would like to do some research, or draft your post to make sure it is a really high standard. We want posts to be the super-starters for interesting discussion! I'd recommend starting off in the comments section, before you have a go at posting. Thanks!
