Just a few things I noticed after another day spent on the Bomb:
Query: First, I know Mjolnir, Aska, and others have brought this up, and it is a serious issue: are submissions being reviewed in the order they are received? I ask this because some of my text and screenshot submissions have been pending for 50+ hours now, while I see others' submissions going through fairly quickly. My concern is that someone else's article may get approved first even though it was submitted after mine, or that someone may post the same screenshots that I did and theirs will get approved first, so that my submissions are rejected when they are reviewed and I am deprived of points. I've PM'd a whole bunch of staff members about this, so hopefully we'll get a firm answer on the moderation order by tomorrow.
Bug: there seems to be a small bug when you go to "entire friends network" tab. I have more than 100 friends, but the site seems to be displaying only 2 pages, 50 friends per page, and no more than that.
UPDATE...VINNY REPLIES TO THE QUERY
Official response from Vinny (staff):
We have different queues for images than text so they are being processed at different rates. Other things, like minor changes, are just sometimes faster because they don't take as much time to verify or approve. For the most part though, we are going through all the major content submissions on a first come first serve basis.
The back of the queue is around 58 hours. As you can guess, we're pretty slammed, but working to get things moving faster and faster. That's one of the reasons you may see some of your submissions processed before others, as we refine our approval process.
Let me know if you have any concerns, we're definitely eager to get everyone's stuff up ASAP.
So there you have it. The official word is that the queue backlog is now 58 hours, and for the most part, submissions are being processed in the order they are received. Vinny has given me permission to post this PM and spread the word on the current queue status, so if anyone else out there wants to spread this info, feel free to do so...
