I submitted a small change to the plot summary for COL. BLEEP, but it was rejected.

I changed the word "battled" to "battle" in order to keep the summary in the present tense, as per the guidelines.

Thanks for the report J., it looks like this was due to the length of the plot after it was modified, but obviously should still have been accepted. I've fixed this for you now.

Regard,
Will

Will, why hasn't this summary been (automatically) moved to the outline section?

I believe Will said it was too long? It’s not an plot Outline if it’s too long.

It may be because English isn't my first language and I misinterpret what you wrote, but I don't understand this sentence. You believe Will said something? A few inches above your comment, you can read what Will wrote. There's no need to believe anything. Will didn't say it was too long. And in this case, it's a good thing he didn't, because the current plot summary is too short to be a plot summary and should become a plot outline.

I believe pre-existing plot summaries are never moved to the plot outline section automatically, even when if you make corrections and keep it too short. You have to delete the old plot summary and re-submit it as a plot outline.

I can never bring myself to make that kind of submission. Corrections are one thing, but I don't want to re-submit someone's work as my own, even if I submit his name with it.
