The approval process can take a day or two. You will receive and email when your persona has been reviewed. If you want to know how large the review queue is, go here: http://www.getpersonas.com/en-US/dash...

I don't know, but be patient, mine took a day to be approved.
If I edit mine, how long it would take to be approved again?

Hmm, I wonder how long it takes for them to approve a new approver? And if not long, could you then find your own submissions and approve them first? ;o) I guess not, but maybe this could be used as an incentive to participate - approve at least X number and then earn the ability to approve an equal number of your own without waiting. But if anyone can become an approver, why not just automatically publish everything until revoked by using "disapprovers" instead. (ie, assume "innocent until proven guilty" instead of "guilty until proven innocent") Disapprovers would only have to screen a smaller number for removal after they have been reported for abuse by anyone. Or would such a system be too badly abused to survive? Maybe not if it were more responsive, which it would be.

Yes, they email you either way. I think they use standard formatted responses, and by the way, what I submitted was in fact not identical or in some cases an obviously different image, and others have experienced this same issue. Here's an example reply...

"Thanks for submitting your Persona 'Personal Title'. Unfortunately, we cannot add your Persona because of the following reason: The design appears to be identical to a previous version you submitted.

We appreciate your involvement in the Personas community and encourage you to create another design that fits our Terms of Service (http://www.getpersonas.com/en-US/upload)

Also, you are able to use any design you like on your own computer. Here is how:

1. If you have Personas installed, click on the little fox on the bottom left of your computer screen.

2. Click on "Preferences" and ensure the box "Show Custom Persona in Menu" is checked and close the box.

3. Click on the little fox again. Mouse over "Custom" in the menu and to the right find and click "Edit".

This will take you to a custom persona interface that will let you design any persona you like for your own computer. Thank you again for being a part of our community.

If you have any questions or want more information, please stop by the Persona message boards and tell us what's on your mind.

Best Wishes,
The Personas Team"

BrianZ: That doesn't work anymore.

There is a bug that no one has picked up yet that prevents custom personas from being applied. You need to go back to 3.6 or 3.5.8, both of which are undesirable due to security flaws patched in subsequent versions.

References:
https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug...
https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug...

Edit:

Also, the queue page shows 11k pending out of a total 100k personas. That gives no indication about where/when a given persona would get approved. How many personas are getting approved daily? That would help give some indication about when a given persona might be approved - which is what folks are asking about.

Yes, aesir.rising, I'm aware that the last couple of versions of FF don't let you apply custom personas for more than 15 secs. That's why I reverted to ver 3.5.9, which they say is supported for a few more months. I'm just hoping this bug doesn't end up like color management, which was crippled in later versions of FF after 3.0.x and hasn't been fixed yet. But you're right, it is yet another example of misinformation, or incomplete information, like on the submission page where it says your persona will be quickly added to the directory, and doesn't explain all the details about the submission and approval process. I guess the popularity of personas has outgrown the ability to adequately support it, and the old "next day" has now become "next week". Time for a totally automated "approval" system.

Seems like Personas is a nice idea, but one that is over subscribed.

Perhaps amending the 'show up' time for Personas to three or four weeks would be more realistic, and save people wondering what's going on?

I submitted themes about 5 days ago, but based on others' experiences, don't expect to hear anything for a long time.

I have also responded to the 'become an approver' suggestion, but got an automated reply that brought me here.

Perhaps make them available in unmoderated form in a specific container category where users are made aware they're unmoderated. Then, as they are moderated, they move to the moderated categories.

The process is broken right now - and the issue is further exacerbated by the bugs in current versions of Firefox preventing local/custom personas from being used. After those bugs are addressed, we're still left with a broken process.

The approvers have been overwhelmed by thousands of submissions. They are working through them but it may still take a few days.

watych the number of ones waiting to be approved the qued list is huge dont summit ones that dont show the image very good cause they most likely wont get used and are taking up space for all the good ones that need to approved and if you are summiting ones that show violence and or nudity nazi symbols or anthing like weapons you might be wasting ur time and ours keep it clean people
