In the case of articles, the best way to convey a message regarding a specific pending article is to use the message feature that has been provided for this purpose.
Just below the box of 'Article Body' where you entered the main text of the article, you will see in blue 'Advance Options'. Click on that and a box will open to put in a message to the editors. You will also see below these notes-
- This information will be visible only to you and admins.
- If you have any special information/message/question to editors regarding this article, provide it here.
- If your article is special in some aspects but is not noticeable to editors on a quick review, you can mention it here.
Submit the article and when the editor reviews it again, the message will be seen. In case you find that somehow the editor missed it or did not understand what you were trying to convey, you can post a response in this thread.
By the way, as you did here, the forum is the right way to raise an issue, whether a problem or a complaint. Only if it is something very personal or for some reason you do not wish to raise the issue publicly that it is fine to contact an editor (or even the admin. if necessary) directly.
