Ouch! This is so bad for me. Does that mean my article will not be read? Please, don't let all the effort I've put in to be in vain!

Other people will read it, it's not for nothing.

Thanks alot man. That will mean alot to me!☺

I understand, it my fault, I submitted later than the deadline. Thanks anyway.
