How long until project appears?

9 years ago | Corvus (Member)

I don't know if this is the place to post this, and don't want to appear impatient,but I realized I haven't seen anything regarding how long it takes a story to be listed, once registered.

Any estimate of how long between submitting a story and when it will be available to view?

Thank you.

    Just had a look, and your submission is still sitting as a draft in your account. It is missing the author name field, at the very least. Please fill in the missing information and click the "Submit for Approval" button -- it should show up as "awaiting editor" once accepted. http://webfictionguide.com/about/submissions/

    I'd love to know the answer to this in general, too. :)

    It's usually under 5 days. We had a backlog last month, due to a technical problem that I didn't have time to address for a while, but that's all caught up now.

    That's good to hear. Thanks for the quick response--it's very much appreciated. :)

    Ah, thank you.

    Ironically, the last two lines in the current chapter 6 are:

    “Which component malfunctioned?”

    “Me, it looks like.”

    I was wondering if the "usually under 5 days" thing is still the case. (I realize that post is over a Year old.) I posted A Devil in God's Country about a month ago, and at the time is said it was "awaiting editor". I figure I must have done something wrong 'cause I don't see anything listed. Of course, it you think it sucks, please take your time:)

    I apologize for the wait—there's a big backlog, and the two of us dealing with the queue have both had very little time to do anything about it. I did update the submissions page a while back to say "3 weeks" instead of "5 days", but even that has been hard to meet. At the moment, there are 30 listings in the queue, and yours is about 10 in. I'll try to free up some time this week to get through at least half of them. Again, sorry for the delay.

    No worries Chris, I thought 5 days sounded pretty quick anyways. You guys being so busy just reaffirms that this is the place to be. Thanks again for the quick response Chris.

    Hope nobody minds me bumping this thread to ask if there's a current backlog? It's just I noticed some new listings came up since I submitted mine, but it's still listed in my submissions as "awaiting editor attention". I just wanted to check it hadn't been missed - but if it's due to backlog I will wait patiently. :-)

    I'd bet it's due to backlog. There are a number in the queue. Yours is in the middle.
