mods: stop censoring my writing

22 0
About 5 days ago I submitted an article to help dp users maximize on the credit card rewards. That article has yet to be publushed. I wrote to them about it and I am still awaiting a response.

Last year MODS were doing great job, this year too much partiality...every user is seeing that, its mostly one man show...

Talking about your article, why wasn't it published right-away? May be you should have written an article entitled "Credit card reward Rumors" lol

JK....take it easy...Hope to read your article soon.

I have written three pages in the past few weeks, all three took some time & research but none of them show up. I sent messages to two mods and one responded and one did not. My Pages have yet to show up. I have concluded that I have either written too many (over a hundred) or they don't like my choice of topics. I have given up. I certainly won't write any more and I it is pointless to ask why the Pages are not showing up.

I did the same thing I think back in late January or early Feb? I posted a topic about credit card fraud and tips on how to avoid or what to do and I've never seen it. My email to anyone in general at DP went unanswered as well. I guess I'm still waiting but it tired me out writing the first one ;-P

Thanks for sharing. I thought it was just happening to me. I am just so used to seeing it published immediately. I understand if they want to rule out plagiarism, but it's been 5 days. It's an original article written by me that I think a lot of DP users will benefit from.

Sorry for these issues. We actually automatically approve all posts, but there was just an issue on our end that was not showing most of the new Page posts. We are currently trying to find the posts you guys are mentioning.

In the mean time, please try posting again (save your content before posting) and let us know of any issues.

Again, we do not moderate what Pages get shown so there is no censorship going on. We're sure they were great articles and apologize for the inconvenience.

I have a tech site bane-tech dot com if anyone feels the need to post about anything of the sort. I will publish without hesitation :-)

maybe there is a technical issue with the site?

At least, they respond.

They don't moderate what is shown? Hmm that's funny because I had mine pushed back and thumbed down by a moderator because he said they weren't deal related. I've also had some not ever show up.
