Regarding Pending Submissions

9,174 views

Hey everyone, it’s be a while since I’ve posted some news here!

For the past few months you guys have been sending me a lot of emails asking about when your submissions will be reviewed, which is understandable. Right now, the reviewing system is really slow, and it takes way too long before new submissions are being reviewed. There have also been cases of people abusing the reviewing system to gain influence and sabotaging the whole process…

I just wanted to let you guys know that I will be updating the website and the reviewing system somewhere in the next few months. I will also be adding all the promised features that are listed in the first news post called “New Website!”.

After the website has been updated I will send out an email to everyone that has a submission in queue for reviewing. You will then have to follow the instructions in that email to make sure that your submission is not deleted. This will hopefully clear the submission queue of junk submissions and will allow for even faster reviewing.

I hope this clears up some questions for all of you!

    As a person who reviews mostly, I am not sure if this suggestion would be as helpful for other people who want to give feedback, but a important part (I feel) that is missing in the editing points is a way to give positive or negative feedback as far as – good idea, bad execution of reveal, or well-written but idea needs work…( a “when did I start to lose you” section or a “tone down the rape-snuff fantasy” check box).
    I don’t know if people realize that they sometimes mis-categorize existing creepy-pastas as original pieces or if people accidentally resubmit a story months later while still missing the point of why it was largely ‘rejected’ in the first place, like a inappropriate tense change or missing tag.
    Sometimes, I read really awesome stories and I have no way of explaining why I have to reject them, and there is no accounting for taste, or people resubmit the same story without knowing exactly what it was they needed to fix. I know comment sections are kind of troll zoos, but something like that could be helpful to both the authors and editors if formed respectfully in editing. I love this virtual space and really enjoy reading everyone’s work. Thank you.

    @HECOMES
    Thanks for the suggestions! I will probably add the most requested features first and then later add additional stuff that you all might like 🙂

    A suggestion that I have is that there should be more sections. It takes a LONG time new pastas to be submitted on the home page. So something that could improve that is a “Recommended for you” section, based off of tags and authors read by that user. Also, there could be a “trending section,” and “most viewed.” This would add more variety and make the website more used than just every month by people who simply read the best pastas.

    I joined this site yesterday evening and, honestly, I love it. I haven’t come across any glitches (YET) but if I do, I will repost them. Also, I love all the stories on here and the freedom you get.

    Regarding what you said about emailing everyone that has a submission in queue for reviewing.
    You could make that into a feature, in the way that when you make a submission, then there’ll appear a button that you can press, say maybe once every third day, and if pressed, then you’ll be pushed a bit further ahead in the queue.

    I don’t know if you can or not, but I think that it would be a great idea to be able to look up users in the search box.

    I only hope the reviewing system is fixed. I’ve been waiting a couple of months, and all four of my submitted stories are still under pending.

    Oh ok. I’m a new creepypasta writer with my very first submission waiting to be reviewed. I really want to get some opinions on it. Also, you should have competitions on this website. You’ll be able to use the New and Updates part more

    I apologize if my suggestions are redundant. I kind of go into a reviewing hole sometimes and wish I could give helpful feedback and encouragement to most of the writers.
    I like so many here, thought that my one and only pasta was pretty awesome, but it took a year to be reviewed and I know what some of the problems with it were now, but have always been hesitant to resubmit it as I am sure there are just some problems with it that I as the writer of it, am blind to. (run on sentences, perhaps?)
    As a slave to detail, it is hard to convey the larger picture with out a notes section.
    Anyway, I have nothing but admiration for the writers, reviewers and readers of this site. I am so glad to have been able to do one thing, reasonably well, and that is read such a variety of short stories and help some of them make it through to the library wall. You all are my cyber sanctuary. Stay Spooky.

    Was definitely very confused with what was going on. Thank you for a better clarification of why submissions were not being reviewed. Especially since my 2nd submission has received influence but my 1st and 3rd haven’t.

    Another idea is to suggest a ban – for when someone posts the same (usually terrible) pasta like 5+ times in a row or keeps posting troll pastas. To be reviewed by the admins/owner.

    This still hasn’t been fixed. A new pasta posted less than once a week is way too slow. Should be as many as submitted at least every other day. There is ONE GUY reviewing creepypasta.com and it has a new one almost every day and has VERY high standards. I also wonder if there is a clique just rejecting everything. I accepted some really good ones and was at 1000 influence. None were posted and I actually lost influence (this was never mentioned as a possibility.)

    I think that there should be a way that writers can get together and make two creepypastas one.

    (the creepypastas are belong to the people who get together.)

    Dear Admin,

    Perhaps when reviewing there can be an option where the reviewer can write a note to the author? If they struggled on certain grammar mistakes we can tell them what he/she needs to work on. Or we can use the comment option to give suggestions of how they can improve ( make their next story scarier)? I hope you consider this.

    With all due respects,
    KKstar

    I read the info and so I understood that I would need to be patient, yet it’s still nice to know that my submissions have a chance. I feel so much better now. May not after review, but for now there is hope. Group hug anyone? Ok, yea that is a bit creepy. Well may all your dreams be twisted, rude and creepy sweet.
