Required Fields Not Valid in Idea Submission

posted by Cooper Sukaly at 11:37AM Mar 26, 2015

Hi, I'm trying to submit an idea, and I've filled in both the Title and Idea fields to my satisfaction, and I also checked off that I read the terms & conditions, etc., but when i click submit, it says, "Some required fields are not filled or not valid. Please verify." Any ideas? Thanks!

    I have a question about the rights to the submission. I would be submitting a subject i'm writing a book about. Does Direct Tv and Tongal own ALL the rights to the subject idea i submit? How does the rights to the submissions work?

    If you submit your Subject and it is selected as one of the winners, then DIRECTV owns all the rights for that winning Subject for three years. However, if your Subject does not win, then all rights and ownership revert back to you. Hope this helps!

    Copy and paste your idea. The new site has been a little buggy, that has helped me get ideas through already. Also if you go over 140 characters and add blank spaces at the end of your idea it might be counting the blank space as a character, making it give you that error. Check title length too!

    I recently checked on my submission for the Maybelline project and only see my 15 second cut-down, not the full length main video. I made sure to upload both there a way to verify that both were received?

    I can't select my favorite 4 stories from the Twilight contest. It shows me the 15 top stories that I chose (and the others), but will not let me select 4 out of these 15...

    Hi Aline -- You have to rate (on a scale of 1-5 stars) each of the 40 submissions in order for your votes to be accepted. You can also choose to select up to 4 favorites (indicated by the HEART) but you'll need to rate all of the submissions.

    How do I vote? There are five boxes from blue to red? Which is the highest? Red to the right or Blue to the left? Would greatly appreciate some help.

    Izzy Francke

    Hey Gean, you vote from left to right (right is highest). The stars range from 1 to 5. The more stars you give to a story, the better you think it is. The red heart to the far right is for favorites! Hope this helps!

    It may be because you have used too many characters in the title. Try resubmitting with a shorter title.
