    I have been trying to add my personal background story for over a week now but can't get it to save and show up. I've tried several different ways but each time I hit "save changes" it will say saving and never finish... Anyone got any idea or am I doing something wrong????

    Before you click "Save", I think there is a drop down menu on the top right. It stays at "Draft" by default. Isn't there a "Submitted" option? I think you have to change it from Draft, and then Robin (or any other possible admin) needs to review it before it gets posted.

    So either you need to change that option, or they just haven't been able to review your post yet. I know a lot of people in Holland go on holiday in the month of July.

    Hope that helps.

    Mine still says draft beside it.....I guess I need to look into that as well.

    Ahh. Your correct VT8man. My story has been up there for a year or so as a draft and never noticed till today!

    Thx guys but I did change that option to finished (published) and it has made no difference....it never stops saving and each time I look at my profile it states no background story.

    RWH, it will not post yet. You have to change it to finished, and it will only publish once Robin, or someone else at pinside.com reviews it first.

    You did save it with those changes? If so, you should see it post in several days. They have to review it first to make sure you didn't put anything in your post that violates the content they care to have on the site.

    Okay, I'll wait a week or so and check it out then.

    I think only Robin can approve stories.
    I remember having issues with my stories and it was because I was using Internet Explorer. This website works best with Mozilla's Firefox.

    Really? I am a Chrome user and I haven't had any issues that I KNOW of. Are there additional features that I would get if I switched to Firefox? And, I also had a story that was "finished" a few weeks ago that never changed to approved.

    I had problems also when I tried publishing my story. I tried it on both Firefox and IE, and couldn't get it to work. Eventually I got it, but I can't remember how.
