The articles section in J2Ov2 is quite different than that in J2Ov1. While the old section was a big mess, the new one makes a distinction between outstanding articles and just average articles. However, for this to work there is an article approval process.
Basically submitted articles are looked at by an administrator, who them decides whether they go in the "Approved" or "Unapproved" section. The administrator can also "return" an article, telling the author what changes are needed to make it suitable for approval.
The administrators have the right to edit article content. They may also fix minor errors in spelling, grammar, etc. If an administrator edits an article, a notice will be placed on the article automatically.
Criteria for Approval
