Do not beg for acceptance. You’re not going to be able to talk your way into a rejected story being accepted.
If your pasta was rejected, there was a reason. I know that many of you are younger and may not grasp why I can’t just make one exception and be nice and post your pasta simply because you want me to, but here’s the thing: you are not the only one with that attitude. There are thousands of others who are also begging for “just one exception” – you are not a special snowflake in this regard.
Furthermore, you can pay attention to the comments of any main site pasta rated below 6-7 – if I let through anything even remotely, possibly sub-par, I get attacked just as much as the author. So being picky is necessary, otherwise that tendency the community has to dogpile on me would reach a level that I wouldn’t be able to deal with. This means that when you ask me to make a special exception and post your rejected pasta just because you asked, you’re also asking me to open myself up to getting a lot of very nasty, rude messages. I mean no offense, but you are not worth that frustration. Sorry.
FROM NOW ON, BEGGING FOR SPECIAL TREATMENT WRT SUBMISSIONS IS PART OF MY ZERO-TOLERANCE POLICY. IF YOU DO THIS, I WILL BLACKLIST YOU FROM SUBMISSIONS AND CONTACTS AS WELL AS DELETE THE SUBMISSION IN QUESTION (and any others of yours in the queue). DON’T DO THIS.
This also counts for people who demand personalized feedback when their story is rejected: there is simply not enough time for this to be possible. The best option is to check yes on Crappypasta; this way, if I feel your story is close to being acceptable but not quite there, it will get published on our sister site to receive constructive feedback from the community.
