There’s nothing that makes this girl quite so giddy as when I see a brand new #realworldsex submission waiting for me in my inbox. But, because MLNP.tv is still in beta (read: a work in progress) and often suffers from some not-so-fun technical glitches, new MLNPstars sometimes have a bit of difficulty completing their submissions without a little help. Guys, I am here for you and I can’t apologize enough for the difficulty or thank you enough for bearing with us while we build out our bootstrapping platform.
There’s still lots of work to be done and fixes to be made. But, that doesn’t mean we don’t have more experience with our platform under our belt, and in the interest of making the submission process as smooth and delightful as possible, I thought it would be helpful to share this handy list of the pointers I most often give.
Tips for making sure your #realworldsex video makes it to Madam Curator:
1. Use the latest version of Firefox or Chrome.
Trust me, this will make everything easier.
2. Read the file upload requirements on the Share page.
Files that are 1 GB or slightly smaller seem to have the best upload times. Mp4 is our fave format.
3. If you’re short on time, do your uploading overnight or on your home computer while you’re at work.
Depending on the size of your file (Max is 1 GB) don’t despair if you get an approximate upload time slightly longer than your most recent netflix binge. While it looks clean and simple, our upload form collects a variety of file types and information (your video, your IDs, your description) and all of these are encrypted for your security. 2257 law requires that we collect two forms of gov’t ID and while it takes extra time, encrypting them along with your video makes them much less likely to be hacked by meanies.
4. Hit that Next button.
This is super duper important. Even if you plan to come back and add something later, clicking “Next” (at the bottom of the page) will ensure that your submission is saved to our servers. Ta da! Now Madam Curator will see your submission on her end, and you can go back to your share page now and edit your submission without having to add all that information over again!
5. If you have a question about your submission, just ask!
I respond to each and every complete, incomplete, accepted and rejected submission I receive. If it’s been a couple of weeks and you still haven’t heard from me, please feel free to send a quick check-in by email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
6. If at first you don’t succeed, try, try, again.
This is where having clicked the “next” button really comes in handy because all you have to do to edit and complete your submission is:
- Go to the share page.
- Select your submission on the left hand side of the share page.
- Mouse over the upper right hand corner of your submission and click “edit.”
- Add your info
- Click next.
And, you’re done! Congratulations you are now well on your way to winning my heart and becoming a MLNPstar!
