Is It a Good Time to Submit New Articles Right Now?

    I have a couple of articles ready for submission but was wondering whether I should wait a week or so until the new editors have been trained and the dust about  all the take over changes has settled.

      I've always thought the sooner the better. The current crew makes mistakes sometimes, so well, I can't think of a reason to wait.

      Hi Sue,

      Others have given very good answers here already, but I thought I'd chime in as well. Some of our existing editors will be helping to train the new ones, so we may not be up to full capacity for another 2-3 weeks. But the only way that may affect authors is that there might potentially be a bit more of a delay in getting new articles reviewed for Network Sites than usual. I definitely recommend publishing when your articles are ready so that they can begin to gain readers as soon as possible.

        Thanks for the clarification Christy and everyone else! I'll get a couple of things published later this week.

    I am. I published one yesterday which still hasn't been approved and it's got 50 views already. Hurry up new editors big_smile

    Edit: Stats update, make that 61.

    The new editors may not be ready in a week. They got to complete some training first. I would publish right away.

    If you've still got several to submit, why miss the chance to submit as often as you can? The existing editors are still working as usual.

    OK, thanks. I haven't published a new article in months so it's quite exciting to get back into the swing of things, especially now.

    I'm still publishing articles as I finish them. I figure, even if it takes a little longer for the new editors to review them, they will still be featured faster if I publish them now than if I wait a couple weeks. If for some reason they make any weird edits that I don't agree with, I can just change it back later (I don't really foresee that happening though).

    Article publishing and staff training are unrelated, one is your job and the other is not so... publish, publish!
