Re: Article offer and acceptance

It would also be useful if an offer triggered an email to the author. I personally have had offers sitting there for a long while before I became aware of their existence. Its not always easy to check back in as often as I would like.

Re: Question about animal & menu names

Animal names are a little more complicted but the way I understand it and using the example you gave, is that it would remain a non-...

Re: Is CC More Than a Quick Buck?

Article Resubmission

Hi All

I am wondering if the option to remove an article and replace it with an uodated version could be added to the interface after an article has been resubmitted following a rejection. You cannot do this currently although you can add a new file.

Re: contacting request submitters

I cant give you any specific answers but I would say, take a deep breath, write, submit and see what happens. Reading through the guidance on this site it does seem as if personal point of view articles are discouraged unless specifically requested.

Good Luck
