...so I log on and I get the achievement (because Slashdot is like xbox live) for the successful submission of a story. Now I donated a few bucks a while back so I am able to preview the stories before they are submitted, you know for that extra trollin' touch, but looking on the front page I did not see any stories that I had submitted and I have no filters applied. This means one or more of the following:
---I still do not understand how Slashdot works fully, as I may never truly grasp.
---That instead of posting news as soon as it happens, someone picked out a bunch of stories and will let them feed out at predetermined times. This makes it appear as if someone is still actively checking articles as they are submitted.
The second option above disturbs me...why not just release the stories instantly after a number of people thumb them up? (There is no need to "fake updates") But like I said before, it could be I'm just retarded...hell one of my submissions had a terrible spelling error in the title! (funny)
