I am tired as heck and can't take this anymore

The time for quiet is over. I am tired of this, and I cannot take it anymore. Admins, please approve posts. Writers are waiting for 20, 24, or more days for their positions deserve to be treated better than that. If my home office had a window, I would run to it, open the window and shout to the world I am tried of this, please approve posts.

I don’t have a window in my home office.

But I am still tired of this. Originally the concept of a members-only area where pending posts would be visible was one that we sent to the admins about two months ago (not quite). The simple system would be, if you are a member, you will have the option to go and view posts from members that are not currently verified. This would speed up approval. Plagiarism checks could be run against the entire site. A bar would move from pending to published upon receiving a certain number of licenses. We could even say that an author cannot approve their content (I could see people using that as an excuse to well, publish their stuff).

With limits, I could see less abuse in a system like that then we have now.

I commit to being here on this site as long as my friends stay, and there are posts to read. I commit to replying to every comment made on my posts. I commit to commenting on everyone who takes the time to leave a comment on my posts. I will not give up, But I am not going to be quiet anymore. I find the situation with the admin team to be bad at best. We have no trust between that group and the authors. While trust isn’t critical, it helps when communication is lacking. I know that many of you feel the way I do. I am sorry now that it has come to this. But, honestly, I know that the only way to get things done sometimes is to be the squeaky wheel.

So here we go – squeak. Admins approve the posts!

  1. Doc, you just need an injection of hope, and being Doc Andersen, perhaps the sharp end of your stick doesn’t affect the numb backsides of the Admin staff, so much these days.

    Dear Virily,

    I have 3 posts awaiting moderation.

    What is causing such a massive delay in moderation right now?

    It is discouraging, and stopping me from further writing.

    Is the site still going to continue long-term, or not, or is it on its last legs, last days now, trying to just hang in there, because that’s what it seems like to me?

  2. I think I will compose a song I leave the melody to you Doc and you can pass it to admin. Hire me, Hire me pay me some salary, I will edit, correct, or do whatever to each submitted post and pass them along to be posted in a weeks time, hire me, hire me, I will work hard and I will do my job just let me work from home and it will all get done la, la, la, la

      • I don’t know if this might be a solution or not because people don’t want to spend even the smallest amount of money these days but one writing job I have that keep giving up orders requires that we have two things a Copyscape account and a Grammarly account and every time I write for them I check through both and then submit. Could that be required here? I mean you sign up for a year and the Copyscape you have to keep refilling but each time you check it only take pennies per article so $10 buck put on Copyscape goes a very long way and Grammarly you pay for a whole year and check as much needed.

        • i suspect they are using Copyscape or Grammarly for the plagiarism check. I do often wonder why this process takes them more than an hour. You can set a folder system on the server that would have new submissions and scan all of them.

  3. You know how I feel about the situation, the same as you. We have done all we can do. It is up to admin or whoever is out there doing whatever it is they are or are not doing with the site. Enough is enough.

  4. I was on a site in which members reviewed other members work. This lead to a LOT OF CORRUPTION.

    1. Voting down an article which did not contain the views of the member reading
    2. Voting down this one and voting up that friend.
    3. Voting down then virtually plagiarising article to be published by the ‘reviewer’.

    The key feature is that when your posts aren’t published…you go somewhere else. That is what is happening.

    As I posted before, I could post an item, it is up, work on another, check the front page, and three articles had been published, so post again.

    I could post my five items withing an hour and keep the ‘social distance’…i.e. me….user 1, user 2, user 3, me, user 4, user 5 ..

    Now if you look at the times between posts, an hour, two hours can pass and NOTHING is posted. So I either have to shrug and post again so that Article 1 posted at 8:30 is followed by article 2 posted at 11 am, with no intercession.

    It is not your problem Doc. You’ve spent MONTHS trying and trying…
