I completed all the required fields on the “Ponylabs Registration” page but an e-mail was not sent to the e-mail address that I provided.
First make certain that you registered with a valid and correct e-mail address. If the e-mail does not appear in your “In Box”, check for the e-mail in any “Spam” or “Junk” folders you utilize with your e-mail account. Also, you may be using a Spam Filter program that only allows you to receive e-mail from people that you have added to your “Safe Sender’s” list. If this is the case, you will need to add firstname.lastname@example.org to your “Safe Sender’s” list in order for the registration e-mail to reach you.
I received the confirmation e-mail from Ponylabs, however the link provided in the body of the e-mail cannot be clicked.

How long does it take Ponylabs to approve my upload before it appears in the Graphic Library and in “My Images” section of “My Stable”?
Ponylabs administrators must approve all content uploaded to Ponylabs.com. This approval process will happen as fast as 10 minutes, but in some cases may take up to 8 hours.
An image has a picture of a lock in the lower left corner and I am unable to open and view the image.
The member who uploaded this image restricted the viewing of the image to either the member who uploaded the image or to only their PonyPal(s).
An uploaded image appears in “My Images” in my account, but the image does not appear in the Graphic Library.
When a Ponylabs administrator approves your content to be placed on the site, the administrator will either place the uploaded content in your account (“My Images”) and the Graphic Library, OR the content will be approved for placement only in your account. Not all content will be approved by the Ponylabs administrator to be placed in the searchable Graphic Library.
Why was my uploaded content not approved for placement in the searchable Graphic Library?
The following are the main reasons that uploaded content will not be approved for selection and placement in the searchable Graphic Library:
The content was inappropriate or vulgar
The content is copyright protected
Similar content is already in the Graphic Library
The content is not horse related
