DC Digital: Releases for Dec. 8

Posted on December 12, 2010 at 10:08pm 1 Comment

Stop the presses! DC’s precious resources are being depleted!

Well, maybe that’s a trifle alarmist, but that’s what occurred to me when I realized what a large portion of DC’s digital release program is devoted to Green Lantern… and how precious little of the current run is…

Time flies when you’re in a turkey coma. I’d taken my last look at DC’s digital releases so late that by the time I got home from Thanksgiving, I misremembered that I’d already finished last week’s column. So, skip… Continue

Sorry for the late column, folks. Been a busy week at chez Staeger. But time marches on, and DC marched through this Wednesday with another sizable week of digital releases. There are 55 new releases in all; it seems like 58, but issues 1 to 3 of Identity…

Wow.



After a couple of weeks of relative dormancy, this is the week where DC started to get its act together. There were planty of new debuts (and almost-debuts) this week: Four from the DCU, three from Vertigo, and one from Wildstorm. (Zuda remains MIA.)



Also new is that DC has… Continue

Before we get to this week’s offerings, I should mention that DC provided readers with a few Halloween treats on October 31. There was issue 2 of The Long Halloween, issue 8 of Starman… and two more issues of Batman, issues 645 and 646. This run continues Judd Winick’s Batman… Continue

Yep, we've thought it through. No blog posts get up without mod approval. :)

Rest easy, friend . . . you didn't screw anything up.  The culprit is a peculiarity in the function of the system.  Saving an article as a draft---which should send it to my blog list only---will also send it to a mod for approval.  I imagine some reason was imagined for requiring drafts to be approved by mods, but it's inconvenient because, once a mod approves the draft, it appears in the "Latest Activity" column on the home page.

 

That means folks can access it before I'm ready to publish it.

 

The reason it became more of a problem this time is because I had to deviate from my normal routine.  Typically, once I've written and proofed my article on Word and collected all the art I'm going to use into a file, then I go the the blog page, cut-and-paste the article, add the art, give it one last proofing (not that that ever gets all the bugs out), and then send it over to a mod for publishing.

 

During that evolution, I usually save it as a draft twice---once to make sure I have it, in case of a power failure or something, and nearly every time I add the art, a glitch in the hyperlink system forces me to save it a second time.

 

Because I usually do it all---save the draft and proof it and publish it---in one session, the mod approval of the draft usually isn't a problem.

 

But "Mars or Bust" I had to do differently.  I had to edit some of the art two or three times, and I saved it as a draft each time.  (I found one piece of art I had to edit, then saved the draft, then found something else that needed fixing, and so forth.)  Even so, that wouldn't have been a problem---except that I ran out of available time to proof the article again.  So I had to keep it in draft status until I can get to it this morning.  (Actually, right after I finish this note to you.)

 

Apparently on the moderator's end, nothing indicates that it's a draft one is approving, vice an article ready for publication.  And because it was only drafts you approved this time (and no follow-on final article for publishing which usually happens), it didn't publish.

 

So you didn't goof up, Rob.  I just broke routine.

 

Best,

Commander B

Rob, now maybe, with your godlike powers of moderation, you can help me with something.

As I typically do, when I post one column for approval, I go back to the previous one, correct all the errors/typos which escaped all of my prior proofreading, and submit that previous one for (re)approval.

 

When I posted my current Deck Log Entry (the Legion Quiz), I also reposted the previous "Mars or Bust!" entry, after cleaning it up.  Usually the reposted column gets approved at the same time the new one is. 

 

But for some reason, the "Mars or Bust!" column is still waiting approval.  I don't know who the system decides what moderator gets what stuff to approve, but if you can give me an inkling on how to get "Mars or  Bust!" reapproved, I'd appreciate it.

 

Thanks,

Commander B
