I wonder if this is because I dropped all eight on the "Drop files here" box? Do they go into "temporary storage" while the article is in process and then move to permanent when posted?

I suppose the reason we don't have a language tag is that not a lot of people have written about Raku. As long as your introduction to Raku had elements people couldn't find elsewhere online (or if its entirety is something people can't find online), we would very much welcome that article!
Sean, I have read many articles here over the years, and many have been tutorial in nature and quite duplicative, but interesting never-the-less as a refresher. However, frankly, I would like to use a code fragment to introduce and provide some PR for my favorite programming language, Raku.
I suggest it be used as a beginning computer language instead of Python--if for no other reason than it is a C/C++-like language in its use of blocks and semicolons. Plus, it is really easier because the core language is huge and most of the required routines for common use are included without having to memorize all those add-on packages just to read and write a file. I could go on, but I'm sure you get the idea. Oh, one more thing for single-finger "typists": names can be "kebab-case" (e.g., 'my-var; instead of 'my_var').
As a simple but powerful demo of core Raku, determine the day-of-the-week of 2023-12-25 (Christmas):
my Date $d .= Date.new: 2023, 12, 25;
say $d.day-of-week; # OUTPUT: 1 [where the answer is in the range 1..7 (Mon-Sun)]
You made changes to article PE-Format-Illustrated-Part-1 [^] , but it looks like you confused something. Now original text is all gone and your copied the content of some other article inside. This is NOT my text:
I do a lot of cross-platform work passing data between Windows and Android, without the benefit of writing that data to a file or assuming that the data is text (aka strings). Most examples you will find use files and assume text input and output. I'm always working with plain bytes of data. When I was looking to compress and encrypt my data, I had to cobble together bits and pieces from a number of samples that pointed me in the right direction, but never used byte arrays as the input or output. My final code is the contents of this Tip.
I reverted back to the old text, couldn't wait for your response, because the article was getting some bad marks. Can you please delete those bad marks, since readers were getting wrong text under that article name.
Thanks very much for your message. Typically in our articles we're looking for meaty, exhaustively explained solutions to their development problems, or articles that can teach them something to make their developing faster, more efficient, or expand their repertoire.
His primary goal is to demonstrate “Using HTML5 WebWorkers and a custom jQuery plug-in to create a Flickr image wall.” He treats the reader like a beginner. He defines jQuery, explains what WebWorkers are, then gets into why he wanted to create a jQuery plugin. Each progressive section of the article expands on his topic, thoroughly explains the code, explains the limitations he chose in his scope, discusses how each element to his plug-in works, provides numerous code examples, and most importantly, gives a source code download at the top for the reader should they need it.
Your article was more of an opinion piece, which isn't quite in line with the aforementioned article and our guidelines. for your next article, I recommend choosing a topic where you encounter a problem you couldn't find a solution to anywhere else. A situation where you really had to apply effort beyond your current knowledge base; where you learned something new. Maybe you had to search around the web for a few sources that gave you hints, but not a full solution. Then write an article about what you learned, and the process in which you engaged in learning it, describing each step.
