News: Status of submissions

Monday, May 17, 2010

Hello, Writers,

We've been getting a lot of queries regarding status of submissions lately. Admittedly, it is taking a while to turn things around, but you've flooded us with good stuff! We've got nearly a thousand queued up. So, we thank you for your patience and understanding as we review the work you've sent us for potential publication in GUD.


- reddit, digg, facebook, stumbleupon, etc... please! ;)

I've added a few items to our "stats" page to give a better view on our response times now that we've been around for a few years.

Love the stats page. Kind of a number geek.

My left brain says I probably shouldn't have posted thate.

The shiny new stats page won't load and I can't satisfy my inner geek.
Anyone else having this problem?

The address in the email was incorrect but the link above should work; sorry about that. :)

The problem wasn't the address- I checked the page a couple of times with no problem until one day it just refused to load. No idea why. Anyway, it loads now if I use google chrome.

The site has been down a few times in the last week as well, but it would be very weird for one page to fail and you be able to post here...though it could just have been bad timing. I'm trying a few things to make the server more stable.

In any case thanks for the notice. :)

So, it's a good sign that I've not heard back on my story that I submitted on 3-16-10?

*crossing fingers, toes and anything else that can be cross...remembers that he doesn't believe in luck and uncrosses all of the above...*

I was just about to query and then saw this thread. Pays to look . . .

Couldn't manage to get into the stats just now - the link just kept me hanging on like an old Blondie song......

how long is too long? How rude is completely ignoring a query?

How long is 'too long' is for the individual submitter to decide. Queries are not being ignored; it's just we don't have time at present to answer them. Trying to reduce the slush pile while at the same time trying to get Issue 6 to the printers are our current priorities.

Being busy is a good sign really - for anyone who is successful in their submission it means more exposure, so I won't complain!
