Post Story "pending," but dated for tomorrow

For those who've been through the process many times, a quick question:

If your story is still listed as "Pending," but instead of saying "Awaiting Approval" there's now a date -- tomorrow's date -- in that field, does that mean it's been approved and will go live tomorrow?

Thanks to anybody who might know.

Yes. You'll also noticed it is blocked out and you can't click on it .

Should be up early am. Good luck with it.

It means your story will go live on the date listed. At that point, the listing will change to "approved".

Laurel sometimes pre-approves stories like this to get ahead of the curve a little.

Laurel is really grinding them out. Only a two-day time lag now--but today's "New" list goes over two pages. Those not appearing on the first page are behind the eight-ball for readers.

And there's the rub I've always talked about with the approval times. Sure, you can approve them faster if you work longer or get more people, but then there are the unintended consequences.

Not only are those stories on page 2 of the new stories list, many of them probably never appeared at all on the new story section of the category hubs.

There are obviously more stories coming in than can be fairly dealt with while maintaining a lag time of only a couple of days. One or the other is always going to suffer.

That's very common. The story is probably posted by now.
