Post Didn't Go Through

Hi, I posted in the General Cosplay section of the forum about a week ago and my post never went through. I'm guessing it was marked as spam. I've been attending anime cons for almost a decade and I'm currently completing a thesis in UNC-Chapel Hill's Anthropology department on cosplay. I was hoping to see if any Cosplay.com members would be interested in being interviewed for my study.

My study has been approved by UNC's Institutional Review Board. I'm not collecting any identifying information (with the exception of photographs, which are not a requirement). My number with the IRB is 13-2709 and my faculty advisor is Dr. Don Nonini if anyone would like to verify my study.

Can someone please help me get my post through the queue?
Thanks!
Laura

EDIT: My email address is lbgrant@live.unc.edu and Dr. Nonini can be contacted at dnonini@email.unc.edu . The IRB's phone number is 919.966.3113 and its email is irb_questions@unc.edu

You're new..Happens to everyone for a little while..But the MAIN reason it didn't go through, was not only that all new post go into a filter, but also that kind of post ins't allowed. You aren't allowed to use this site for asking for research/interviews.

I'm not interviewing through the website, just looking for people interested in being interviewed. I have seen threads requesting the same thing in the past on here.

Also, I have tried contacting the email address listed under "Contact Us" and the mail keeps getting bounced back.

Jason's right in that it's because a) you're new and b) things like "help my paper" or "Help me with something school related" isn't allowed.
However if you post asking for interviews and don't say it's for a school related reason then I think that's allowed.

(Side note: If you need interviews I'd probably be down for it. Shoot me a message with a few more details. (: )

There is nothing wrong with asking for help. Ichigo is right on the post though. If you post it like that then it will go through.
Keep in mind, there is nothing wrong with posting when you need help, this is a community, we HELP eachother. there are specific places on here you can go to and post.
Dont be brought down by any rude comments you may hear, some people just cant give positive advise.

Surveys and research of any kind are prohibited, so when I went to review the posts that was deleted for that reason.
