iIf I remove any given sentence from the post it submits just fine, if I leave it all in it dies out, even when I use the admin interface. I had to use my version of the code I work on to get the quote in there.
I don't see any strange characters, and that's not the reaction it should have to them anyway...

What a bunch of bullshit. Tho I feel a little bit of troll emanating.
MaybeNever- Perhaps the solution then is to throw the chihuahua at the bad guy, then pump the shotgun while eating a big slice of cantaloupe. Am fear nach glèidh na h-airm san t-sìth, cha bhi iad aige 'n àm a' chogaidh.

Hi guys, I have been around the fstdt website for a while and I finally made an account. You know, long-time listener first-time caller.
I have been trying to submit quotes, good ones too. However, they never seem to get posted on the website. I check other entries to make sure I don't re-post and I usually go through the confirmation process without a hitch. Is there a queue or a backlog? I want to know in case I am doing something wrong when submitting the quotes.
"All national institutions of churches, whether Jewish, Christian or Turkish, appear to me no other than human inventions, set up to terrify and enslave mankind, and monopolize power and profit."
There's an approval process, which generally weeds out 90% or so of the submissions.
Those who have been around since I last picked up new public admin members can vote on submissions. If the votes exceed certain thresholds they're approved an posted, or deleted and removed from consideration.
That said, lately the voters alone don't hit the approve threshold on their own. I'll go over a day's worth of quotes, or less if I get a good haul of them before that, each day. If some thing has received a decent response, I'll look over it, do any apparent editing needed and approve it, if it hasn't I typically bin it without reading over it. Though I do flush some quotes even if they're popular just because there's nothing amusing about them and they don't manage to cause me to froth while reading them.
My advice is something fundie and in some way evocative. Be it the person who said it, something horrible, something worse, or something funny as hell in the wrong context. Those are the most likely to get approved, if I'm sitting at work going 'Pew Pew Pew' all day because of a quote it'll sure as hell get approved. Short of that, it could be victim of just not sticking out enough from the mass of submissions.
The typical lag between submission and final assignment is about 3 days, if you don't see it by then it's not likely to pop up. If you see it before then enough people liked it that I wasn't the one doing the approval.
