Validation

Posted 17 May 08

I'm so happy that I was chosen to be a moderator in this amazing site, but there's one thing I would like to say.

Please, please spellcheck and revise grammar before submitting.

It's very hard to review a chapter that is full of mistakes and, quite frankly, I don't like rejecting stories that have a lot of potential because of mistakes.

So once again: Review rules before submitting!

 

Thanks,

Gabriella (lustandthrill) 

 

Also;

Please, categorize your story into ONE CATEGORY ONLY! There has been some confusion about this. There may be more than one category that applies, but pick the one that best fits.

Thanks,

j3nn

Congrats on getting the role of moderator! Such an honor could only go to an author such as you. But (and I am fully aware that I'll sound stupid asking this) what does a moderator do?

The mods are the ones that manage the validation que; reading the stories and deciding which ones are post-friendly and which ones need more touches by the author before the can be posted.

so cool. How long does it usually take for a story to be validated?

How long does it usually take for a story to be validated? I sent in my first story ever yesterday and it hasn't been validated which makes me think its crap :((

You shouldn't expect your story to be validated so quickly. It can take a few days since so many stories are probably being sent in.

Whe nyou are a trusted author, your stories are posted imediately. ON the SPOT. I just post and it's there. I guess i'm a "Trusted" author.

OK, this new mod thing is totally great... there's new stories on here every day, practically every hour. Sweet!

It depends on who is validating and how many people are able to get on. I haven't been on all weekend - Sun poisoning... yuck! - but when all three of us (I think there are three?) are validating, you are usually validated fairly quickly. Thanks for all the congratulations! I can speak for both lustandthrill and I that we were both extremely excited to see that we were chosen. :)

I am fully aware that I'm going to look like an idiot asking this but every time I submit a review it comes up as a review on the first cahpter of the story so here's my question: How do I submit a review properly.

By lustandthrill

Wow, I haven't seen all of these comments! I'm very happy I was chosen and to answer, a mod basically validates or rejects submitted stories. The validation period usually takes a few hours, the most, I validate about four or five times a day. Since I'm a senior, I hardly have any work now, so I'm online most of the time. Thanks to all that have been making this task easier! And all of you wonderful authros, keep the stories comin', they keep me entertained.
