How come my articles that are accepted, never hit your home page as recently added articles?
I just had an article that was just approved, but I do not see it on your home page. Also, how long does that link stay up there, even
if it is inserted (unlike mine).
Answer: Unless your articles are in a restricted category (sexuality for example) they will usually reach the home page unless pushed under heavy volume.
Currently, we’re only displaying 20 articles on the home page at any one time. Today, we approved 564 articles so far…which means, the home page turned over 28 times in about a 10 hour span of time while our editors worked. In a typical day (such as Friday), the home page will turn over 50-70+ times and all in a compressed time span of somewhere between 4am till 9pm CST while our editors work.
Because it is possible that your articles never made it to the home page if we approved more than 20 articles in a 5 minute span of time (say, multiple editors are working), I think what you are identifying is that we should probably lose that statement from our new article approval alerts because we can no longer guarantee your article will reach the home page every single time. Sorry…
We’re open to hearing how you think we should change this issue?
