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.

thanks,
Vinny

I am only posting this on the forum because Vinny has given me permission to.

This one should be deleted because it has a huge MobyGames watermark on it: http://www.giantbomb.com/mechwarrior-2-31st-century-combat/61-1407/211800/51-250474/?offset=29

Also, shouldn't this whole thread be in the "delete/combine requests" forum?

Why are submissions not 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.

Can someone give us a firm answer on whether or not submissions are viewed in the order they are received?

Because I know theres one or two people who dislike me, maybe more"
Yeah, anonymity on both sides (the submitter, and the approver/rejector) is absolutely essential if the system is going to be free from abuse

I've been going through some of the galleries, and I have run across a few images with watermarks from MobyGames on them. I though these weren't allowed. Is there a place where we can report images like this?

Can staff or one of Jeff, Ryan, Vinny, or Brad, please get back to us on this? If "pending" images have simply disappeared from our "pending subs" section, with absolutely NO notification of rejection or acceptance (which is the case with me), do those images need to be re-submitted?

Just refresh the page or click the drop down menu again. It takes a while for mine to load too, especially if I have 20+ comments.

"But there's nearly a 12 hour difference as to when I uploaded these things. I would think that they're going to chronological order.

If they are being fair, then they should go in chronological order, but it doesn't seem at all like they are. For example, none of my subs from yesterday have gone through, so I've been stuck at something like 136 points all day, while other people have gained a ton of points today. I have no idea what the moderation procedure is, but it is definitely not chronological. This is getting ridiculous. Some of my subs have been pending now for 40 hours and counting, not to mention the fact that my image subs seem to have disappeared altogether...

"I spent all of last night submitting close to 500 images, and they were ALL pending this morning. Now, I'm looking on my "Pending Subs" page under the "images" tab, and I see only about 25 images pending. I have received no notification in my feed or anywhere else about the other 475 images being accepted or rejected. They are just gone from my "Pending Subs" page. Please, for the love of God and all that is holy...PLEASE don't tell me there is a glitch with the web page and that I have to re-submit 475 images.

I'm really at the end of my tether here. Please give me an answer on this...a REAL answer. Please don't reply with "yes". That would be unbelievably insulting at this point.
"
I'm having the same problem. I only see approx. 25 of my approved images, but none of my pending or the rest of my accepted images. I'm sure it's just a bug on our end and not the moderators.
"
Crossing my fingers, man...
