Journal theStorminMormon's Journal: After 12 Days: Story Submission Still Pending 7

Right so I submitted a story on March 2nd pondering whether there were more vista installs or uninstalls. Now I'm not whining that my story has not been posted. Of the 6 stories (other than this one) that I've submitted to Slasdhot 4 have been rejected 1 accepted as is and 1 accepted by clustered with other stories.

It's 12 days later, and the story is still "pending". Does this strike anyone else as odd? I did put it under the "Ask Slashdot" section - so maybe questions take longer than stories. Who knows. But I find it odd that I'm 2 days away from the 2 week mark and the story is still in submission limbo.

After 12 Days: Story Submission Still Pending

Comments Filter:
  • It does seem a bit odd. I once had a submission in "pending" for over six months, but I think that that was a bug. It's possible that Ask Slashdot submissions hang around a bit longer, though. Can you see the state of the story through the FireHose?

      Not to get drawn into a pending contest, but I had one linger for a year. I think it sometimes just falls through the crack. You know, the kind the mods are smoke.

    • "Can you see the state of the story through the FireHose?"

      I honestly haven't tried. I guess I'll go see if I can or not.

At the source of every error which is blamed on the computer you will find at least two human errors, including the error of blaming it on the computer.

Working...
