How Long Submissions Take to be Approved

December 6, 2009
By Anonymous

It seems that when you submit something, it takes weeks, perhaps even months for it to be approved. Everything is always published on the website, is it not? Has anyone ever received a letter saying your article was not approved and will never will be? I don't think so. Why not just post everything up right away so we no longer have to wait and wait to see our work up online.

None of them seem to fit.

My photograph took only a week to get approved. As for everything else, such as my fiction articles and poetry, have taken up to three weeks and still aren't approved.

Good things happen to those who wait, maybe? Hmph.

What they should do is create a rating system we use ourselves, kind've like what fanfiction.net has. Basicaly, you'd rate it like from G, PG, PG-13, or R. Sure we're teens, but teens are capable of writing mature material. This way we could get things posted a lot more quicker...that is if there problem is acting as a filter through all the work submitted.
