Around a 10 months ago I made a post asking about what happened to universe factory. HDE 226868♦ informed me that he was really the only editor left and that activity had died down due to a few things. A short bit after HDE made another post asking for more writers and editors. A few people said they could help editing. Although I don't know if anything came of those.

10 days ago I (finally) finished part 2 of my story I've been writing for universe factory and submitted it to the editorial board, and also left a comment as a reply to one of HDE's comments on a more recent meta post about universe factory.

To date I haven't gotten a reply nor my story approved. Does universe factory no longer have active editors?

    $\begingroup$ Just a comment for now: It's been a crazy last week and a half for me - I had to get up at 4:30 AM on Tuesday; that kinda encapsulates things in a nutshell. Currently, as I'm the only active editor (I believe?), that means I'm the rate-limiting step to all of this. Apologies for taking so long; I'll try and take a look at the post tomorrow. I think there's also a discussion to be had about getting more folks onboard for editing, and I'm also the rate-limiting step. For me, that's also going to have to be a tomorrow-ish problem. $\endgroup$ – HDE 226868 Feb 15 at 3:29

Last week was extremely busy for me, and I fell behind on a lot of things, this included. Sorry about that.

I've gone ahead and made the relevant changes:

  • The blog post is now published in Universe Factory!
  • I've added elemtilas as an editor; let me know if there are any issues there. Turns out Monty Wild already has editing privileges, so they're also covered
  • I've updated the meta post about blog announcements and set up an item in the community bulletin for the next week - it should show up around 0:00 UTC on February 16.

With the additional folks available for editing, hopefully this sort of thing won't be an issue in the future.

As one of the ones who encouraged you (and Mephistopheles) to post your stories to U.F., I'm glad to hear it's done and in the queue!

As for editors, I know I've expressed interest in being an editor before, and as I noted in that question, MontyWild also expressed interest. Sadly, I never heard anything else about the call for editors after that time.

The last mention of U.F. was in November & December last year.

Hopefully HDE226868♦ will be able to respond to this!

    $\begingroup$ @Topcode Making up for lost time, I guess. . . Also, elemtilas, if you're still interested in being an editor, I can add you on Medium tomorrow. $\endgroup$ – HDE 226868 Feb 15 at 3:34

Yes, I'm an editor, however most of my work is done via mobile, and Medium has compatibility problems with mobile platforms in my experience.

I can see work that has been submitted to Universe Factory, but I can't approve it unless I log on to a desktop... and my lack of time on desktops means that I rarely get a chance to do so.
