Articles and Tutorials

The articles must be reviewed by the proofreaders before they are approved and most do not get approved because they do not meet their standards. The wait time may be significant depending on the workload for the proofreaders, so patience is necessary.

Just let me know if you hear nothing or it is not approved within a week, at that point I will inquire on the status of your post.

Cool, okay Mfillpot! I'll wait (I'm just anxious because it'll be my first "real" article that isn't just a blog posting). I just didn't know what to expect. Blog posts are published instantly! So compared to "articles and tutorials" there's been quite a difference, lol.

Thanks again,
Robin

It might be nice to get an e-mail or something when you submit an article or tutorial - some sort of acknowledgement that it has been received and is pending review, instead of leaving an author hanging for this long.

Blog posts appear instantly, so I don't understand why an article should take so long. It's been several days now and while two more articles have appeared on the site, mine has yet to even be privately acknowledged.

Perhaps I'll just stick to blog posts.

You are one of the lucky blogs users that is pre-approved, most users must wait for the same moderation/proofreading for both articles and blogs.

Yes Robin you are one lucky user as mfillpot told. My blog posts are in waiting state for just 3 weeks. So far not any one of them get approved. And more over, if you post any blog post that will come under Article section also.

There wont be much different , I think

I am sorry that I forgot about your posts, they must have been lost in the hustle. I will continue to push the admins to get them published or maybe even get something better set.
