How come I submit and article and it gets rejected and then two days later the very same link gets greenlighted with a boring headline.  The mods have been infiltrated by the illuminati and the trilateral commission.  Obama is just an unwitting pawn of the Fark mods, think about it it make sense

Spends his morning in his office reading the news and making jokes about it then spends the rest of the day reading people's reactions to his jokes?

Bad timing: Submit when the queue is enormous and I think they often just flush the queues due to being overwhelmed
Awareness: it takes a few go around in the queue before the modmins see a topic has legs
A lot of the modmins don't share my sense of humor

The mods have been infiltrated by the illuminati and the trilateral commission.  Obama is just an unwitting pawn of the Fark mods, think about it it make sense

Oh I see. I think it's because your headlines suck

Devilishly handsome, definitely not a virgin, with a super model girlfriend who lives in Canada?

agree on all three points

/also spam the hell out of the queue with headlines (not actual spam, but if you can do 30 in an hour, you'll probably get 5)

And it certainly does help being a total farker, but that is not because the modmins are trying to punish liters for being liters but because being able to see the queue, what has been submitted and what is greened is enormously valuable in figuring out

+ how full the queue is
+ what has been submitted and is a waste of time to resubmit
+ what has been submitted and red but is a decent article needed a better headline
+ what is unique and so stands a better chance of being greened
+ being able to submit a redlit headline

there are certainly cases (iirc) the modmins admitted intentionally waiting for a much better headline to appear.

None of that is secret or indicates any sort of cabal.

The only part of all of it that is terrible is that modmins don't share my sense of humor. Can't figure out why that is allowed to stand, but probably reflects their shiatty educations.

While I think the modmins have neglected some very great stories and with great headlines, I still appreciate their curation and doing their best to keep the humor up, and keep the duplicates down. It's far better than the reddit way which is that humor is punished, and the same story is submitted dozens of time if not more.
