[NEW] Did you review my stories thread (4+ days since submission)

As we’ve changed things for contributors - I thought we would start a new thread. Before that, please review the new system thoroughly here:

We ask you to please review our guide before asking if your story has been reviewed. We are no longer prioritizing Medium submissions and will put the vast majority of our editorial resource into stories submitted via HackerNoon.com.

In your comment, it helps to address/tag the editor that’s responsible for your category directly.

Thank you for your understanding!

@natasha Been 4 days since I submitted the story. Kindly review it


Hi there @isudhanshu25, thank you very much for your submission!

I think this story could be greatly improved with a few tweaks:

Up the ‘relevancy’ factor in your title & intro.
Generalized trend pieces, titles, and statements such as “6 Innovative Technologies…” ; “The world has seen great leaps in digital technology in the past few years…” and “the pace of innovation is fast with new technologies emerging every single day…” are likely to make an educated reader say “Yup… that’s pretty obvious.” In other words - “So what?!”. You’ll lose them before you’ve even started. Your current H1 promises to reveal (on a personal level) how the most disruptive technologies will change my daily life - so you need to deliver on that promise in your first paragraph, by shocking me with something I hadn’t thought of before, something that’ll hit home - something that’ll make me want to keep reading.

Increase the number of references to external sources, research, opinions
Instead of simply presenting a listicle of technologies everybody has already heard about, consider including a curated list of the latest news and opinion pieces on these subjects; quotes from people building these products; research on how these products might impact society… etc. You’ve done a good job of including a few real-world examples - maybe include more multimedia - such as a few screenshots of these referenced products, use cases, or links to demo videos, to really make it clear how these technologies might change lives?

Finish stronger
Memorable content makes readers want to take action, read further, subscribe to something, share something on social media… What do you want your readers to do and/or feel when they’re finished reading your piece?

I hope that helps - let me know if you have any questions?

Hi! Please, tell me what’s wrong with my story: https://app.hackernoon.com/drafts/business-intelligence-in-microservices-improving-performance-ds1gm32kw

It was submitted via HackerNoon website one week ago.

I can understand the whole revamping is a bit delaying the publishing process. Thanks for updating me :slight_smile:

Hello @natasha!

Hope you are doing well. Thank you publishing my first story. However, it is missing the proper formatting. I even tried to edit it with proper formatting but it is still not showing any changes.

Can you please have a look at it and fix it? Here’s the link to the story: https://hackernoon.com/how-online-players-can-secure-their-privacy-while-gaming-and-streaming-uskk38rk


Hi @Storm @David, I submitted the fourth and last part of my story 4 Days ago through Hackernoon.com , I would really appreciate if you could review and publish it as early as possible.

Thank you :smile:
