Worth repeating advice.
I, and everyone else who publishes on Triond is familar with the processing of our writing. Unlike other sites which have a mammal who actually reads our work, Triond has a automated bit of software that it would be perverted to call ‘moderation.’
This piece of crap application is set to bounce every single factual article. Every article that backs up facts with quotes and attribution will be rejected as ‘being too like’ or ‘already published’.
This, of course, teaches you the advantage of sloppy journalism. What you learn on Triond you must disregard on more academic sites and in proper writing.
To put it simply, if you quote the London Times to back up an averment; i.e. Osama Bin Laden is living in Pakistan, your article W I L L be declined by the automated crap application. Hence, you avoid all forms of authenication.
If you are listing events or persons, i.e. The past ten Prime Ministers of England or the past five Oscar winners, your article W I L L be declined.
The method Triond uses for a writer to contact them and make their complaint is a repulsive forum called ‘Get Satisfaction’, (a misnomer) where you can post your complaint and sometime in your life time, someone who actually works for Triond might get around to glancing into that Forum and if they feel like it , will allow your article to be published.
As this can take a week, and as many items are fairly topical, the method to escape this is to write a ’stub’.
Create your title, put in all your tags and summaries and photos, but not your article. Instead post a 250 word exposition on the crappy software cheap Triond uses to ‘moderate’ and that as your article consists of facts or quotes, or by necessity needs to put in ‘already published’ items, you will do so after publication.
Once your item is published you can then ‘fix’ it, adding all those facts and quotes and authorities which prove you aren’t making this up.
The publication of your stub takes at the most 24 hours, at the least, less than five minutes. As soon as it is published, delete your stub and pop in your previously written item.
No muss, no fuss, and you Get (instant) Satisfaction.
