Okay, so I don't get it and I feel kind of hurt....or like I'm stupid or something. I got an email saying I didn't get approved to be an editor. I don't understand why....I have a 6.7 or something and my reviews (besides the first few) get EU or U votes. Do I suck that bad? Am I missing something? Is there something I'm not doing right?
I don't know where to ask so I hope this section is okay. I just always had pride in my writing and all through school/college I received great grades in English or on any papers I had to write for class....and I have wrote a TON of papers in college, enough that I actually have carpel tunnel! I've wrote a 20 page paper and got a perfect score. I'm just a little hurt .
Don't worry! I was so disappointed the first round because I was denied too
It was sort of a shock because I've actually gone to school for writing AND EDITING! I was somewhat crushed. Felt like I wasn't good enough, but I tend to get sensitive when it comes to writing because that is my number 1 talent and passion. Editing isn't the same as writing, but it's something I do and am educated in and I do it well. I was accepted this time and my email ver. won't work so I don't even get to edit!
Maybe people get denied simply because the spaces were all filled, not because you aren't good enough. I am starting to think that may be it. I'm sure you'll get approved the second time around. I don't know how long you've been here either, but some of us have waited for nearly a year to get this. Some of us have waited anxiously and want it because we want to do a very good job. I could use the practice since editing will be part of my actual career and I plan to do my very best. Then I see all these reviews with 2 and 3 mistakes before you even get past the FIRST paragraph and it disappoints me that the editor didn't take time to actually do the job when some of us truly want it
Sorry to rant.
Anyways, I'm sure you'll be approved when it comes time again. Just try to be patient. Use this time to practice and just put extra focus on your reviews for now. That is what I did. Also if you're a mentor, you'll have plenty of editing to do there. I think it's pretty fair, the editing program. I've not got to start yet because the damn email verification problems, but I think everyone will get their chance and all. Just be patient. Focusing on my school work editing and writing helped me pass the time without worrying too much about why I wasn't accepted.
