I recently posted a news story about the launch of my new Kickstartarter but it did not appear.

Can somebody advice me what I did wrong in the process please?

While you're waiting for an answer on how to post even more, how about typing a few lines explaining your duck-and-cover strategy on
this, this, this, this, or this?

I'll see what I can do.
This used to be a job for mods. Now we just have a sysadmin.

@FairBoy

As you have only done 28 posts, may I ask is this a cover account to hide who you really are?

Perhaps use your full account to question my lack of attendance on this site lately, which is fair, but I have been busy designing and building Amiga products as well as having a day job and I use diferent ways to interact with people now.

@clusteruk

Not sure what you're asking.

this is Sibbi

If you're asking who can approve news, Matthew certainly has site access.

Pay no attention to "about us". Those people are all long gone activitywise.

Hi Stephen.

I've sent you a PM separately. If you can resubmit the article I'll get it posted.

There wasn't anything to approve when I logged on this evening.

Unfortunately, you posted the old Kickstarter link.

https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/checkmate1500mini/amiga-3000-inspired-mini-itx-computer-case


This is the new one.

Steve

OK, the actual link was at the bottom of the page if you click more. Can you put the new Kickstarter link at the top please so browser can see it.

Thanks

Steve
