    Re: New Black List Thread - Franklin Leonard answers your questions

    Following some contest success and an 8/10 review (for a 7.7 average), my script had some busy activity a few weeks ago, but it's died down a bit, so now I'm wondering how long to leave it up before taking it off completely.

    Thanks.

    However given the length of the thread, I can't seem to find it:0
    You get included in an e-mail that highlights your 8 in that specific category, but it's far less valuable than an oberall 8.

    24 hours is a good rule of thumb. It's sometimes faster. Rarely slower.

    Slower happens almost exclusively when readers download a group of scripts - when they're beginning any sort of travel, for example - intending to add their evaluations as soon as they next have access to reliable wifi.

    Yes - my latest was under 24 hours.

    I can now say with reasonable certainty that we'll be rolling out for episodic work in early autumn. Obviously we hoped to do so sooner, but we shifted focus to take care of a number of film related initiatives, among them the Labs, the site redesign, the WGAw partnership, and the Warner Bros relationship (and there are still some things we've yet to announce. Stay tuned.)

    As for the turnaround time on evaluations, due to a spike in demand post the announcement of the Labs and Warner Bros relationship, turnaround right now is generally between two and three weeks. As per policy, if it takes more than three weeks, you'll get a free month of hosting.

    Franklin said end of summer - I believe - which we are at now, but who knows, they may push back the TV launch - again!

    Franklin, are you there?

    I bought two reviews for two different scripts, both comedies. The one I bought on 7/29 came back on Aug 4. The one I bought on 7/31 has yet to be downloaded. So....I don't know what to tell you.
