    Requesting two small clarifications from the Lead Editor of Articles section

    Nowadays I am trying to concentrate on Articles section. I have noticed that whenever I try to upload articles which takes little bit time, I automatically get logged out. I can upload an article only after logging in at least three-four times. Most probably, as a result of this problem, draft articles are being created on their own. I have seven to eight draft articles (these articles have been finally uploaded, but some drafts remain). I request the Lead Editor to delete those draft articles. I hope that the uploaded articles (not yet approved) will not be affected if the draft articles are deleted.

    Furthermore, I have five pending articles right now. I would like to know whether I can go on uploading articles, or not. I would like to know the maximum limit of submitting articles for a Diamond Member.

    I would be grateful if the Lead Editor kindly clarifies the points.

    This is a common problem, I think I also faced this problem. Many draft copies are remaining on our list of articles. What is the way out, I like to know?

    Partha,

    I have deleted the draft articles. Note that in case of an error message or if you get logged out, you should not again submit a post (whether an article or a forum thread or an AE answer). What you should do is open a separate tab alongside it, log in again from that second tab and check under 'new posts' if your post was submitted. If not, then only go to the first tab, press the back button where you will likely see the post intact & then submit.

    Secondly, you can replace duplicate drafts with a fresh article. The only thing is, in this case, you would need to leave a message for the editors that you had replaced a draft with a new article & hence the file name should be changed to match the title of the new article. Otherwise what will happen is that the title & text will not match and the URL in the browser will also show the old article title.

    With regard to the posting limit for Diamond members - I will confirm this with the Webmasters. I think posting limits were removed for Diamond & Platinum members, but not sure of this. I also do not think that deletion of a draft article will create a problem with submission of new articles.

    Thanks Madam for acceding to my request. Yes, you can also delete the draft articles on Paona Brajabasi and the book review. Both the articles were earlier approved.

    Oh My God! This is a terrible problem! I was going to thank the ME for deleting the draft articles, but.....! Just now, I was going to upload an article, but due to deletion of all draft articles today, I have received the following message:
    ''Your posting rights in this section is temporarily restricted since 5 or more of your posts in last 5 days were rejected for various reasons.''

    I request the ME or any other Editor to lift the restriction as early as possible to enable me to upload articles.

    Beware! I question everything and everybody.

    I have moved the below 2 resources to another name so that you will not have deleted articles in your name. That will allow you to post more.
