Chances are your game was denied because I didn't meet the criteria for acceptance. Use the template here
. The more information and effort you put into submittng your game, the more likely it will be accepted.
Edit:: I see your game "Rob the sea dog" in the approval queue. Below is all the information you provided:
Rob retired his pirate life and started a living on a lonely island. One day his servant Binley delivers Rob an alarming message: the pirate Cormack has robbed Robs treasures and ships. Rob doesn't put up with that. Together with Binley he decides to seek Cormack on the sea and reclaim his property that was stolen from him.
That won't do for the main site. Personally, I like the pirate idea but you should provide some character bios, information on the world they live in, their status in that world, motives, etc. I'll copy/paste my advice from a similar thread
If your game isn't approved on the main site, it'll at least stay on the forum.
If you want to make sure your game gets approved on the main site, be sure to provide at least 3 screenshots (6 is recommended), a solid paragraph describing the plot, some character bios, and a list of features that make your game stand out. The number one reason games are denied on the main site is because they lack information. Pretend you're a user browsing around looking for a game to download.
Are you going to download the game that has a screenshot of the title of screen and maybe a town? Will a description like "As the hero, you must save the world against the forces of evil. Recruit party members and quest through forests, caves and dungeons to stop the generic evil bad guy!" convince you to download the game?
Remember, your job is to sell the game and the more information you give, the more screenshots there are, and the more effort you put not only into making the game but into showing it off will affect how it is received.
For some examples, check these games out:Fireheart - Legend of the PaladinsCrystal Birth: The Story of ArninElemental-The Runics
Also, I highly recommend you use this template when submitting. It'll give you an idea of what you need. It's from this thread in case you were wondering.
