Waiting more than a week for approval.

I haven't had a story pending nearly this long in the past, and it's not as if there is much to be shocking or controversial about it from what I could tell. Anyone else have this experience lately?

Yes. I had been contemplating sending a PM to Laurel because the story was taking much longer than usual to appear. The pending (on the old interface) turned from blue to grey a couple of hours ago so it's on its way.

My last submission date has changed to tomorrow's date.

My last story to go up took 10 days. I took it down on the 7th day and put it up again, sent a few emails.

And my current pending story says it will be new 11/06/17 and that's been on the shelf until day 10 as well. Sent a couple emails as well, but was given no response.

In the past my emails were answered, so maybe I'm just getting annoying now.

I'm a 10 day man, which means I won't be making the Christmas Contest deadline.

I guess 10 days is better than never. I guess.

Three and a half, which is longer than they’ve been taking me lately. In fairness, much of my recent output has been for contests, which are faster.

My record is seven days.

Puts on ancient Og mode...

Seven days was fast when I first starting posting stories on Literotica.

My last stories were parts of a chapter story. The first took five days. The second took two days. I submitted the second the day before the first one was published, so the result was that the two stories went up on consecutive days.

Laurel's been doing this for a long time and it's sometimes interesting to watch details about how the site operates. It's not machine-like. It's reasonable, if you've been waiting for awhile, to remind Laurel that your story is in the queue.

LATER: I checked. It's been six years. 11 Green Es from Laurel until July 2011 when I pointed to a list of stuff that needed cleaned up on the existing Web site (rather than giving attention to fancy bells and whistles updates--which still aren't fully delivered--and leaving the Web site full of broken stuff, much of which the forum users had to give guidance on). Her answer was to say that everything functions just hunky-dory on the Web site and that I was a troll. That ended the nice run of editor pick Green Es on my stories--like maybe that was the point that I stopped writing editor pick stories--that there's some connection between writing and storytelling talent and Laurel's concept of a troll.

I might think it was a sarcasm on KindofHere's part.

Is this the right emoji?

I like this one.


I'm not much of an emoji guy, but for you Sr7plt, I'll make an effort in the future.

I suppose that I'm just not used to it taking that damned long, and this has been a grueling week in RL. It's just very frustrating on top of having stories rejected for rather dubious or shady reasons, such as because they are too political (at least two stories so far rejected because of politics). It's been a weird, wild ride between that and some of the idiot trolls that some have my stories have attracted of late.

When it's been five days, which it has been a few times, I send a PM to Laurel asking if the submission had fallen in the cracks. She doesn't always answer, but it's always been posted the next day.

My one is now posted. I expect it to have a very limited audience.

https://www.literotica.com/s/bridal-protector

I wasn't sure whether to put it in fetish or transsexual/crossdressers. I chose the second.
