Where is my Nanny post?

  • Print

Help PSP, I posted about my Nanny and I don't see it!

Don't worry! This is probably due to one of the following reasons:


1) It's still within 36 hours since you sent your post to the Classified.


Park Slope Parents has a dedicated Nanny moderator.  Posts are usually checked every 24 - 36 hours (sometime a little longer at the weekend or on a holiday). 

Thanks in advance for your patience!


2) Your message was rejected and you didn't see the reject message


Our Nanny posts are closely moderated and to for a Nanny post to be approved, it must meet the special set of requirements PSP asks for with caregiver recommendations. Check your SPAM folder or if you are a GMail user search one of the tabs to (see here for our instructions about how to do that).  Sometimes posts from the PSP Moderators can end up in the wrong place.  Read all the requirements for Nanny posts HERE.


3) You sent your recommendation from an email address not associated with your Park Slope Parents membership.


We get that there are a lot of email addresses to keep track of.  The email address that you signed up with is the email address you need to send your Nanny recommendation from.


4) You are a member of Park Slope Parents, but not a member of the Park Slope Parents Classifieds List.


To join the PSP Classifieds list, please follow the instructions HERE.


5) You message was approved, you just didn't see it.  Search Conversations in Yahoo! to see if your message was approved. 

To do this, you must first login to the PSP Classifieds page with your Yahoo! alias (if you don't have a Yahoo! alias, we list how to set one up HERE

Once you are signed in, at the top of the Yahoo! groups page, you will see a search box with "SEARCH CONVERSATIONS."  Use a keyword like you or your Nanny's last name, the last four digits of the phone number you provided, or some other individual identifer you remember from your recommendation and you'll be able to see all coversations (or what we here at PSP call posts) about your Nanny.
