When are articles written for public requests released?

Postby stelle on Wed Mar 13, 2013 10:10 am

I wrote for a few public requests last week. While they've been viewed, the customer has obviously decided not to buy them. Oh well, such is the life of a writer.

How long before those articles are released to everyone else? Some of them were approved last Tuesday, and they still don't appear under my profile. I thought it was supposed to be 3 days? It doesn't really matter, since I don't think they'll be snapped up by anyone else right away...I'm just curious.

Thanks!

Depends on the request. Three days is average, but it could take longer if the request is for a large number articles. Basically, in order to be released the customer has to come on and approve or disapprove of your article. In most cases don't look for your article to go into the general pool until the request expires.

Huh. So those looooong public requests (80 days, etc) mean that your article might be in limbo for a long time. Doesn't really worry me, since - like I said - I don't think it's likely to get snapped up right away. Still, that's a long wait!

Barry, I want to thank you for always taking the time to answer my questions. It's much appreciated! Are the forums always this sloooooow?

No actually. I was away for a while, and am quite surprised. I'd guess that a lot of our writers are experiencing the crush of what Google Panda has done to hits on websites. Quite a few writers here also write a lot of other places.
