Article Rejected after 6 Days, Reason given need style money ????

0 Members and 1 Guest are viewing this topic.

Hi

I ordered 5 articles with i need articles - the first 3 were delivered real quick and it was very easy to know they were ready because I was emailed

So I have been logging into I need articles each day hoping the 2 articles im waiting for will be complete

Today I logged in and found they had been rejected - One of them was for Bussiness KPI Reports - here is the notes I entered when requesting the article

General details about business leadership and kpi details & benefits

And the reason it was rejected was this

If you have specific style requests, you need to add the style fee when ordering the articles. This includes the article point of view (first/third person), information or formal writing, article formatting, etc. The reason our rates are so low is that these things are left entirely to the discretion of the writer. If you need to specify these specifics, there is an extra fee associated with them

So I'm totally lost here - The other articles went through fine - this one didnt because I need to add a styling fee - but a styling fee for what - because I made notes that I want a general Article ?

And why doesn't I need article email us when a article has been rejected ? but to top it off I have had to wait 6 days to be told its been rejected.

Oh, 1 more thing - the articles that were accepted and delivered had same kind of notes so I'm baffled as to why these have been rejected and others accepted

thanks

The same has just happened to me, after a week.

I took note of the instructions:

Quote
Article Instructions and Details: (Optional)
One or two sentences describing the angle or slant you want the article to have and clarifying any ambiguous keywords. All other instructions will be ignored


I needed several 'how to' articles and because the keyword box could not accept the words I wanted to use as exact keywords I wrote the instructions as follows:

Keywords: handle network marketing objections

Article Instructions and Details: please write as a 'how to' article: how to handle network marketing objections'


Given that the rejection took a week to roll round and other articles from the same order went through OK my intuition is that when articles have been in the system for too long they need to be rejected with a reason other than our writers did not want to do this work. Because at least one writer took at least one of these articles into their own queue to write up and then recycled it out again, had any writers rejected these articles, with the 'style excuse' then they'd have been rejected days ago.

If articles are genuinely rejected for this reason as above then the instructions to commissioning clients need to be rewritten to make it clear that NO instructions can be given.

I also note that the instructions say the following:
Quote
All other instructions will be ignored
If the system was working correctly then the articles would have been written but the 'How To' request would have been ignored. That would not have been a huge issue, the delay and need to resubmit is a bigger problem for me as a client.

**EDITED TO NOTE** I just resubmitted the articles and noticed a thing. When I submitted articles last week the maximum number of keywords that would be accepted was just 5, now it seems to be at least 6. This was the reason why I instructed as I did. My resubmission was for the whole term, no instructions this time.
Also, the first 2 of the 3 articles I resubmitted has already been snapped of the list to be worked on and I did not pay for speedy service. ;) w00t!

We have almost 500 writers. Some will work on articles that should be reported.

Your best bet is to stick to the rules. Remember that these are primarily seo articles and that they're very inexpensive. You are going to get what you have paid for.

Asking for too much will result in your article requests being rejected by many of the writers.

Jon, the point here was not about rejection but that the instructions given on the order page and the outcomes of doing so seem to be contradictory.
It is interesting to note that ALL the articles I resubmitted are now completed, while I slept.
