A quick note on our new contributor contest

The good news: We’ve had a ton of submissions this week (wheee!) and are super excited about the incredible content y’all have been bringing to the contest.

The bad news: The very high number of submissions have resulted in a bit of a backlog as every post has to be reviewed, edited and published. But don’t worry; we’ll make sure to get them all up and published by the end of the weekend!

Thanks for your patience, and stay tuned for news about round two next week…

    I assumed that if they weren’t up by now, they weren’t eligible (?)

    Hi Vanessa,

    Just wanted to make sure — so l0ng as we submit both entries to be reviewed by the end of the day today, we’ll still be in the running? (I submitted a post last night to be reviewed and I’ll be submitting one more today)

    I’ve had trouble posting images to go with my contributions. Any suggestions?

    Hiya, not to be annoying as I know you guys are swamped! Was just looking for my submission from Friday 24th to edit (I forgot to tag it) and noticed it wasn’t there. I know it’s under review, but I thought I was able to see it until then. I just wanted to check because I know Friday was the deadline and I’d hate to get disqualified because of a technical issue! Thanks so much!

    I just noticed that the initial post says “Friday the 25th”….so were posts accepted past Friday the 24th? I went with the numerical deadline of the 25th…

    I appreciate all the hard work you folks are doing to get all the posts up! Does this mean that if we don’t see our posts by the end of Sunday that we did something wrong in posting? I ask only out of excitement and hope, since mine have not made it up…

      My second post is still pending as well. Maybe the backlog extended into this week? Thank you Feministing editors and contributors for all of your hard work on the SYTYCB contest!

      I have the same problem. My two SYTYCB entries were submitted minutes of each other but only the first one was posted so far. I definitely didn’t miss the deadline (they were both submitted on Thursday night) and want to make sure the second one is just still pending review. Any way to check? Thanks so much!

    I have the same concern as Tango above. I submitted 2 posts…one on Tues night (Aug 21) and one on Friday night (Aug 24). I have been going through daily to see if they had made it through the review process and have not seen them posted. Did all posts that were submitted and followed guidelines accepted? Or perhaps I did submit it incorrectly? Thanks :-)
