How long does it take for an article to be published?

skeeterlynn skeeterlynn
I was just wondering...I had submitted my first article and was wondering how long it usually takes before it is published? I submitted it Thursday between 1 am and 3 am, and later that day Thursday it was submitted to someone for review and is still waiting on that person. Is it normal for them to take this long? Am I just that anxious that it seems longer of a wait than it really is?

OK, it's published now. And also, I mean this in no way towards the editor. I just was wondering so I know about how long it takes since I want to continue doing articles.

Lately it has been taking days to get an article posted.

It has taken me about 2-3 days per article lately.

There is usually a flood of new submissions towards the beginning of each month as the new topic suggestions are posted. Unfortunately, editors can currently only hold 3 articles at one time for editing (hoping to get this increased soon) and most authors do not seem to be immediately responsive to requested changes. I've had some that the author still has not responded after several weeks.

Some of the most common reasons articles are sent back:

1. All images used require a source, whether it's a website, link, or a name/screen name if it is your own. SexIs requires this for liability reasons and articles will no longer be published without this information.

2. Articles should be at least 500 words in length except for SexIs Subjective, News Feed, and Define This (link), which should be at least 300 words in length. Large quotes do not count towards the word count.

3. Submissions should be thought provoking, generate discussion, provide a lessons learned, etc. Stories (even if autobiographical) and erotica are not acceptable.

I would say 90% of submissions I edit are returned or rejected because of one of the above reasons.

Lastly, an editor does not receive notifications of messages left on a submission in the notes section once the article is released back into the Task Market. You will know if it was released if you can no longer edit your own submission. In this case, send any comments to the editor via a private message. Alternatively, you can email Rayne.

Hope this helps!

Thanks for the great info Kindred. It has taken a few days as of late, which is no problem. Before we moved to SexIs Social you'd submit and sometimes it would be 2 or 3 weeks depending on the editorial calendar before the article would show up. It was kind of like Christmas, you'd check and there your article would be. I like the new system a lot, and the editors do a fantastic job!

Thanks, Kindred!

@AHubbyof2SexualMinds - That's because we had one editor/publisher and a billion of you awesome contributors. It was hard to keep up!

@Everyone - We're still working out the kinks with this program. Every month, we have new contributors (which is so incredible!), with even more to say, so we have to adjust how we do things. However, like Kindred said, probably the most busy time will always be the beginning of the month. We'll try to get the backlog down as fast as possible, but in the meantime, we thank you for your patience!

Thank you for this. As far as guides go what do they typically look for?

I'm working on a how-to for these and hope to have it up this week. Keep an eye on the SexIs section of the forum for it.
