I am not sure how everyone else feels but I am getting very tired
of working on a story or submitting news and then having it deleted
without any explanation of why, I mean I think we at least deserve that
much and if we don't have anything thing to go on but an auto generated
message then how can we improve writings and reportings thereby improving
the image of ATSNN as a place to get news on the web.

Well, first off, your most recent submission didn't contain a properly formatted first paragraph, only two fractured sentences with a hard-return after the first. Our guidelines clearly request that special be applied to that first paragraph, as it's the most important piece (appears on ATSNN home page and in the RSS news feeds). Right next to the form field for the first paragraph, this message appears:

Introduction paragraph: A single properly formatted paragraph as a summary of the story you're submitting in your own words. Do not copy-and-paste material from the online news article your sourcing. Minimal intro paragraphs will not be accepted.
Unfortunately, your submission didn't quite meet with this standard. Also, the subject line indicated "TA Attack" of which the story was not an attack of terrorist origins, but what appears to be a bus hijacking. Given the volume of submissions, and frequency of submissions that don't fit our clearly indicated requests, our editors often do not have the opportunity for comments on every rejected submission. Right above the submission form are these helpful links: NEW ATSNN GUIDELINES AND CONTENT QUALITY REQUIREMENTS ATSNN Story Requirements About ATSNN I hope that helps.

Plus the hijacking of the bus in Athens has already been posted in atsnn and in ats in the current news section the links to both can be found below.

Thanks I appreciate it sometimes I just get in a hurry
and then get the formatting screwed up.
and I did search for the Athens hotsage situation
and at the time that I searched there was not
an article.

anyway thanks for taking the time to respond to let me know
what was going on I appreciate it especially because I know
you don't usually have the time to take to explain.
