fonts are not showing up after submitting
I submitted fonts that were never on DaFont & I didn't receive an email telling me that. One of the fonts was a Powerpuff Girls font, not the one made by Neale Davidson, it was an outlined font made by someone else, when I submitted it & it was supposed to be reviewed. The first I submitted, it didn't show up! What caused it? Why does DaFont even have a Submit a Font option? Does it only accept fonts made by people themselves?
I was a bit same like you. First time I submit my font here, it doesn't show up too. Then I go to Blah Blah Forum and asked people why my font didn't accept. The webmaster said to me that caused by a bad kerning. Maybe you should check the font if it has a good kerning and readable. Or maybe DaFont didn't accept font that imitates the other font. If you submit a font, it doesn't appear at that moment, usually you must wait until one day or two days, although sometimes it took until a week.
Sorry for my English, I'm not a native English.
DaFont doesn't usually reply with rejections unless you directly ask them. Most of the time, it's due to the font having errors in it for some reason (bad kerning, recursion, overlapping countours, etc.) It can also be due to the submitter is not the person who created the font, if there's some question involving licensing, etc.
As for the 'hollow' version, I stopped making and supporting hollow versions of my fonts (such as Powerpuff) for two reasons. First, most art programs will do it automatically with a 'stroke' option, which will get the 'hollow' effect simply by turning off the fill and leaving just the stroke. Second, they usually look horrible in desktop publishing as regular text and don't get much use, accordingly.
Does it only accept fonts made by people themselves?
Yes. But in your case, you stated that you found this font on the internet, so you didn't make it yourself
First of all, I never made my own fonts. I tried different softwares, but none of them would do. That's why I decided to find fonts online that were never here before, but they weren't accepted. :(
Second, how do I make my own fonts with a software that has an option to import images in them? :|

If you didn't create the font, they won't be accepted.

I did, but none of them would do. I'm under 18 & I don't make fonts. Anyone under 18 that makes fonts?
I said 'Read'. Which in spite of your answer you clearly didn't. For if you had read what I advised you to read you would have found the answer with ease.
How am I gonna contact them? There's no contact form on the contact page. I hovered over the "click here" link, and it's by email. Isn't there ANY way?

samuraijacksgirl4ever grow up please
Well, I'm not submitting ANY fonts here until I can find a decent software! I give up! I tried EVERY font software. Font Creator is the only font software I know how to use, but it doesn't let you save the files. I wanna find a software that lets you save without buying a license & has an improt image option!
