Motivation: The initial decision took far longer than my previously submitted manuscripts to this journal (in the past I've experienced ~6-7 weeks) but admittedly this was also during the start of the COVID pandemic. The manuscript was sent to two reviewers, one of which offered a one-line comment saying the manuscript "This is an exceptionally well-written manuscript. It also makes a significant contribution to the field on social network research methodology." The second reviewer wrote one paragraph but did not point to any necessary changes. After these initial reviews the editor gave the manuscript an "revise & resubmit w/ minor revisions" but it was not clear what either the reviewers or editor wanted to change. Upon inquiry to the editor, I resubmitted without changes and got the paper accepted. Although it was nice to have an acceptance w/o revisions, I felt that the reviewers did not give a thorough read as I failed to believe that there was not one thing worth revising.

Motivation: Only after several reminders did the journal realise that their handling editor had resigned. The new editor provided no comments to the final decision, even though the reviews were mixed. One of the reviews was insightful and provided valuable comments, the other reviewer had critique that was not really relevant to the paper.
