    as far as I know, no one can see the Editors comments in your Diary Queue.

    Besides, you guys only say nice things about us :p

    I hope that the quality of debate will improve,
    but I fear we will remain Democrats.

      I had no idea that it told you your diary was queued.  Interesting.

      I see no problem with a diarist see it has been queued.  There are other reasons why a diary might become "unqueued."  For instance, if it gets too many comments and recs before posting according to our standards then it's getting attention and conversation, which is the goal, so it won't need what we have to offer.  If it hits the rec list before going into the box then it doesn't need our help, either.  So there are a variety of reasons for a diary to make it to the queue but not to the box.

      The very fact that a diary makes it to our queue means there is something that is at least intriguing within the diary.  So if your diary doesn't making it all the way to the CS box, then take that queue notification as a sign of encouragement, and keep writing and refining your writing to improve it.  That's what Community Spotlight is all about - to get more eyes on good writing.
