Publish Weekly, Get Rewarded Not Accepted

I submitted my idea pin to the publish weekly, get rewarded goal on July 5th and it was "Not Accepted" on July 11th. I followed all the rules, so I'm not sure why it was not accepted. My question is, should I still submit idea pins for the rest of the weeks or does it not matter because I technically didn't do the first week?

Hey @bethgrushkin !

I learned that lesson the hard way. I used to submit pins immediately after uploading. Sometimes those pins flopped...and certain goals only allowed up to 10 pins to be submitted.

When I did the math last month, I could've made over $800 more if I waited until the pins reached the goal's benchmark. *cringe* right?!

However, I see that there is a 7K participant limit for each of the goals. So it has to be a balance because if I wait too long, perhaps the goal will no longer be open for submission.

Bottom line, I'm going to wait until certain pins get close enough to meeting the goal before submitting 😉

Good luck @bethgrushkin

Hey @imerikamarie !

That happened to me last month for several pins...and I'm certain I followed all the guidelines/rules too.

I still submitted Idea pins for the rest of the weeks and it was accepted because eventually the "not accepted pins" changed to "accepted".

Strange because I didn't write to the Help Center or do anything. Hopefully your "not accepted" pins will change as well. Bottom line, it doesn't hurt to submit pins for the rest of the weeks.

Good luck!

Hi, @NotABondGirl !

The pin changed to "in review", thankfully! I will continue to post for the rest of the weeks. Thank you for the response!

@NotABondGirl Thanks so much...super helpful. This is my first month in the Creator Hub, so I feel like I am throwing spaghetti at the wall. But super grateful to get paid after my YEARS of hard work on Pinterest. I got in mid July, so I can't do the one pin a week one, but am shooting for all the other options. 

Thanks again!!

Do you know what the reasons are for "not accepted"?  and is there anyone at Pinterest to talk to?  I was up for 645 bucks for three pins and just heard it was not accepted. They all had video content, etc. It's super frustrating.  I want to like this creator hub, but .......

Thanks!!
