Why is my item not available to be listed as for sale?

I am new to Bonanza and have a question! I found that the system somehow put one of my items on reserve. I did NOT initiate this! When I followed instructions to place it back for sale, I got this message: “Just letting you know… This item can not be set to for-sale status.” Why???

The item is probably “Under review”. These are items that are manually reviewed by Bonanza staff to ensure that they are not counterfeit items or they are not infringing on protected trademarks.

The review process usually is done within 48 hours and if there are no issues, the items are placed “For sale” and will appear in your booth.

That may be true for many items here on Bonanza, but I have a K>D> Lanf vinyl LP record that Bonanza always has “under review”, that over the years was never approved and still is not …still sits there with that red dot

love how we cannot edit our comments if we don’t catch errors quickly!! typos = K.D. Lang vinyl LP record and I am referencing the vinyl LP record “Angel With a Lariat” …Bonanza apparently thinks it should be censored?????
