Have you tried this? (Emailing Medium to get them to take another look at a piece?) I’ve never emailed them about anything.
Also, when you say new title, edit and republish, do you mean totally take down the old piece and publish a new one? I’ve seen someone else wrote that they did that and it worked (the new version got curated, I mean). I have been tempted to try it. Just editing doesn’t get it looked at again, I assume? So you’d have to actually make a brand new article?
Thanks, Shannon Ashley!
