Community Call to Action – let's help authors awaiting moderation!!!!

First, a call to action – you can do or ignore it is your call.

Please send an email to the support team. Ask the admins to publish the backlog of users’ posts. Some have been waiting for more than nine days. I figure if we all email the support team asking them to get those articles published, they might move faster. Or at least we can offer some sympathy for our fellow community members that have been waiting for a long time. The viability of any site like this one is the reality of views. The more new material we have, the more likely authors are to come back. The following content we have, the more perspectives we drive. I have noticed that right now, most of the trending articles in the trending tab were published more than four months ago.

If you want some text, I will include a high-level sample of what you could send at the end of this post. As a community, we are stronger when there are more new posts on the site every day. The admin team is also more reliable when we have more posted content available for readers and other authors to read! I have a goal to read 20 or more posts per day. I know over the last couple of months, it has been a struggle to make it to that 20 goals often. Some of that is the traditional doldrums of summer. The site has traditionally had lower views in the summer than in the spring, fall, and winter. People tend to be outdoors and on vacation more, and not inside writing!

Suppose we all send the admin team requests for those posts to be moderated. I know, bak when the site had the publication bug, some so many authors couldn’t publish. I am sure many of you remember those days. It is so essential for this site (and for any writing site) that we continue to have content to review. The more content, the more likely we are to gain views from internal and external readers. Thanks in advance if you do decide to send a note to the admins. The more of us that do that, the higher the overall impact. As a community, we are stronger together. The critical thing to remember is that while the admins on the site, we hold the content. There are other content sites on the internet, so we have some power here.

Sample text (this is only a sample)

Dear Admin team

I’ve noticed there are a lot of authors waiting eight or more days for their posts to be approved. Is there anything we can do to get these posts available for readers?

  2. I assume that you are a verified member here, doc.

    You do not seem to have any problems getting your articles published.

    Some non-verified members are in danger of becoming “certified” members, unsatisfied, mystified, across this continental divide.

  3. No problem with sending an email or two however if they are backlogged how do your thing they’ll feel about all the emails? Perhaps it is time the admin considered adding onto their team someone who just takes care of the posts.

  4. This is a great idea and I do appreciate your efforts!! I have an idea that I want to post that will benefit all and will be fun, but I have to wait for moderation which takes days. I have several in queue here and several waiting to be added.

    Thanks!!
