A couple of requests from a writer attempting to submit stories to the site:
1. Please provide some kind of automated feedback to indicate whether or not a submission was successfully executed. Perhaps a confirmation email, or at least a pop-up that says, “Upload successful. Your story, XXX title, is now in the review queue. Thank you for your submission!” Right now, when I click “Submit”, all I get is a redirect back to the top of the Submit form, with no indication that my story and cover image were even transmitted. I submitted a story titled “Angel’s Tag” in October 2017, and “Sand Circles” in October of this year – and I have no idea whether or not the site actually received them.
2. Please provide rejection notices. At a minimum, a “Rejected” email is fine. If I get a sentence or two with actual feedback about my story, even better – I’ll take the input and write a better one next time. Right now, I have no way of knowing if my stories were even reviewed.
I’ve been visiting this site for a couple of years now, and I appreciate the forum you provide for writers to share their tales with a popular audience. With posted stories ranging from amateurish to professional-quality, I’ve enjoyed the reads and creativity I find here. Plus, it’s Creepy. Many of us value the platform, so thanks, and please keep up the good work!
Please let us know any suggestions on how we can improve the site and the forum.
