1) Non-standard texts will not be published.
2) After attaching the text and sending it through the system, you'll see a screen with the submission number of the text. Without this number you will not be able to claim for the rights to publish – in case of any possible event. If the number does not appear on the screen, it means your text was not sent successfully.
