    I have been getting a lot of emails lately saying: "Congratulations! We've Reviewed Your Article on LetterPile and It Looks Great!"

    This is fine, but why are staff reviewing articles that have only been moved to the niche site two or three days ago? This seems a little premature and a waste of much-needed resources that could be employed elsewhere, doesn't it?

      Every time you edit an article, even if you add a full-stop it goes back to the queue to be edited. They only check the changes you have made, so if it's not much it's a few seconds of work for them. Not a waste of resources if they maintain the quality this way. A few seconds or minutes is not much, imagine the spam that would go through if it were reviews every couple of months and not every time an edit was made.

        Ok, I did change one word. Fair enough I guess. I didn't realise that was the reason. Thanks.

        It'd be nice if we had the tool that they use for comparing current versus previous versions so we could see the edits we've made. Maybe it's something proprietary but perhaps not. We probably get a glimpse of it when we see the magenta/green highlighting in "view edits" after an editor has changed an article. I guess after we change something, the changes just appear as highlights in their viewer.

          An editor did a major overhaul of one of my older and most read articles, and he provided me with a copy of the original for comparison. Since I was relatively new when I published it and they have made major format changes since then, he did some reformatting to comply with their formats. I liked it except that there is some confusion, even among HP editors about what is proper APA formatting of section heads. Personally, I have an APA stylebook and if they want me to follow it, I will follow the book, not the way they edit it.

            I agree about the APA format. I use the website referred to us by Paul. Sometimes the editors do make changes even when I use this, but they are minor and I'm fine with that.

            But I follow this website as it's quick and easy. I never had a stylebook, just knew of the rules as I write papers, etc. often. Had to often look up rules online, until I found this site.

    I imagine that much like when our articles are edited and we can choose to view the article with changes highlighted they can do the same thing so if it's just a word or two or a full stop they can easily figure that out and it won't take them any time to edit it.

      That's exactly how I imagined it.

    I thought it was all automated, Jodah. Every time we edit one word it goes through a basic edit bot. I doubt that HP staff is doing it by hand. No time or resources wasted. I may be wrong, not 100% sure. I get those emails all the time, too and delete them.

      Nope, it's manual edits. Someone from the staff told us about it a while ago when the question was asked. They can see the changes made, so it's quite a fast edit process.

      I remember someone asked if writers should not make these small edits because it wastes time and resources of the editors, and the reply was that they actually want us to keep making these small edits as it all helps to make the article better.

        I remember that. I think it was Christy or Christen, the one who recently left. She said it wasn't a problem, it was just their job.

          Yes, I would think it was Christy too.

        Thanks for the correction, Brandon. That explains then how some things are missed.

    Maybe they're doing a mass review ... I found about 4 or 5 articles with major edits today.  The editor axed quite a bit ... photos, quotes, verbiage, and fixed grammatical issues.   At first, I felt upset but after further investigation, I realized whoever edited had my best interest at heart.  No longer taking it personally.

    Every time I update a niche article I get a positive pass from HP via email.

    Interesting, I too thought the process was automated especially if the changes were minor.

    On the other hand, there's been times when I made a small edit and received an e-mail that told me to fix additional things. Usually the suggestions were to fix broken videos or links.
