Has an editor every incorrectly corrected your article?

ArcaneBlast ArcaneBlast
I don't normally read over what I post too in depth, but sometimes I subconsciously notice differences. For example, I tend to use semicolons a lot, and I happened to notice that there were none in my post; all the semicolons I had placed were replaced by commas. These commas were between independent clauses with no conjunction connecting them, and were not elements in a series. Basically either a semicolon, or a period would be the best punctuation for that case.

Has something like this ever happened to you? I'm not the biggest stickler for grammar and I make mistakes myself frequently, and while there are some mechanics that isn't common knowledge for everyone (who/whom), editors should have a grasp of these.

I've never had it happen to me. Seen some really doozies on editors parts on others, however...

I'm Australian, so my (correct!) spelling of words such as colour is often changed to the American spelling. It's annoying, but I guess it's bound to happen considering that this is an American based site.

Opps, just realized that this topic is about the correction of articles, not reviews. Never mind.

Correction of reviews is still pertinent; this thread is more about the quality of editors in general more than anything.

Yep, it is frustrating because I can't go back and fix it.

I don't think some of the suggestions of that work for sexls articles. I wish you could downvote editors when it came to articles.

Hey folks!

I'm sorry you're noticing some errors in your articles. I wish you guys would have emailed me or PMed your editors about it directly rather than bringing it straight to the forums, but now that it's here...

We've got a solution!

Within the first 5 days of publishing, your articles can be re-edited by the editor who published it. If it's just plain errors, email or PM the editor who published your article and ask them to fix them.

In the case of ArcaneBlast's semicolons, my suggestion to you is to save your original article in a Word or text file so that you can compare your version to the version we published. This way if something is changed that you think is right, or that you included intentionally, or something like that, you can point it out and ask them to revise.

If you notice the errors, and it's been more than 5 days, email me directly (rayne@edenfantasys.co m). DO NOT PM ME. I need to be able to keep track of issues we have on SexIs, whether it's an editor missing errors, or an author violating the ToS, or a guideline that needs more explanation, and the easiest way to do that is if they're all in the same place.

And as always, please feel free to email me with any question or concern you have regarding SexIs. I love questions and suggestions and I'm here to help!

Thanks!

Thank's for the reply, I was not aware I would be able to PM the editors about this issue.

Not with articles, however I've had parts of reviews re-written for no reason at all. I've also had sources and quotes get deleted. I'm glad I don't need an editor anymore, as I hate having to go back and fix my review after a bad edit job. That being said, most of the editors I had did fine. It was just a few who didn't.

Not a problem. In the future, though, if you're unsure, please don't be afraid to email me.

Same here. I've only had this issue with reviews. I don't write articles.

Wife is more than welcome to come to me when she has an issue and I'll help her work it out.

That goes for everyone. If ever there's an issue with the editors, or a concern about the magazine, or something you think we could be doing that we're not, please feel free to drop me a line. That's what I'm here for!

I have before, yeah! But they were really small things that didn't stand out a lot.

I don't write article, but I had an editor who actually shoved semicolon's into my review willy-nilly. It didn't make sense to my review, it broke up my words, and it annoyed me a lot. She didn't seem to be able to understand what I wrote either. She'd read one paragraph, question me, then later realize I already answered her question.
