So last night I was trying to post a session run through of Onirim. After I had got done writing it up, it said it was pending. Then this morning I got a notice that it was declined, something about geekgold. I tried again and made sure the "This is a good post - please consider it for a GeekGold award" was unchecked, but same thing again, it's pending.

I'm new to posting here, so maybe I've missed something??

Even as I write this I wonder if it will post.

Help?

So this posted, but I can't get it to work on a "sessions" forum?
What am I doing wrong? Or don't understand?

Note that anything posted in the Review and Sessions forums is always sent to Geekmod for review regardless of whether the "Good Post" box is checked.

If you are posting something very brief, then you may be better posting to the General forum which is not reviewed unless you check the box.

Okay, thanks!

Where then do I find "guidelines" for posting in a "sessions" forum?

Thanks DaveD! That worked for me, just posted it under the general forum of the game.

This "feature" is also known as a bug. For the "Sessions" forum of a game the checkbox should be forced as auto-chosen. This seems to bite all new session posters.

Yeah I might have to work on that.

But what's interesting? Adding a thematic story? Giving stats? A combination of both? More feedback would be helpful.

If you really want to post a Session report (and get GeekGold for it), take a look at the Sessions forum for the game you're thinking about. Read some of the reports that have been posted there, especially the ones with a lot of thumbs and/or comments.

If you just want to talk about a game, use the General forum. If you have a Rules question, the Rules forum.

So it went through?!? Hip, hip hooray!
Guess it depends on who is doing the GeekMod at the time.
I thought it was then prudent to delete the general forum post, since they were identical.
Thanks for all the help everyone.
