Goodbye Again, Weighted Companion Cube :'(

I know there have been a lot of people submitting stuff, and everyone (who isn't already 1000) is having to wait, but is anyone else having to wait 1+ days for their submissions to go through?  I have some that have been sitting in the queue since yesterday morning, and they still haven't been approved.  I wouldn't even be that concerned about this if it weren't for the thing that I fear would happen, which it did in fact happen.  I wrote a full article for the Weighted Companion Cube around this time last night, and it is still pending. However, within what appears to be the last few hours, a different article has gone up on the page.  I acknowledge that it could have been written prior to mine, but the fact that it was probably written by someone with a 1000+ score or who just got lucky and had theirs approved first is too much of a possibility.  Having only two approved posts and 11 points, while others don't *seem* to be having as much trouble scares me.  I don't want to sound whiny, and please, someone tell me I'm wrong.  I hope they at least make a notice of exactly how the queues work, so we can put this issue to rest.

UPDATE: Three more got approved, but they were only minor. Still hoping for the big stuff to go through (because I hardly did any big stuff). No, they were not approved in order. Odd.....

I feel like i have been waiting a little while, but I'm just thinking its probably so hectic on their end of things, that maybe they get to to it by person? Like, they come across one guy who put up 20 different things, and then bam, he's got 1000 points worth of stuff. I, of course, don't know exactly how it works, but I'm sure it will be all fixed soon, this is still the Beta, right? Good luck to you!

I feel you Mjolnir. We need more people on wiki submissions. I have had stuff pending for over 24 hours as well.

Yes, this is only beta, and good luck to you too, Raydanger.  I don't think anyone really knows how it works, but I have an idea of how it should. I think there should be a queue for each page, and whatever is submitted first gets first priority; whenever something is submitted for a page, that page goes to the top of a total queue.  I hope that's how it works, but I get the bad feeling it doesn't.  Lets hope they address it on the podcast tonight.

Yeah I'm still waiting 24+ hours on some of my submissions. That really sucks about your entry for Weighted Companion Cube. I think it's only fair that they add your sub, give you full points, and worry about editing and polishing the article later. It doesn't say that your entry got rejected, does it?

I think the queue system is what is implemented. I think the problem is that everyone is so eager to post stuff to get their point total raised. The swarm of content being sent to the staff is probably overbearing and it is going to take a while to go through every submission. I just hope things will settle down so the guys can get their heads straight!

Everything, besides 2 entries for the Golden Sun games, still says Pending.  It doubt it would get rejected, seeing as how I think mine is longer and (at the risk of sounding cocky) perhaps more in-depth. I changed the stupid blurb at the top, which they didn't, so I hope to at least get credit for that.

@ MasterSplinter: I know they're using a queue system; I just don't know exactly how effectively it works.  And now it seems everyone's posting images (which Brad even said he likes better), so attention may be getting drawn away from the text, which is the most important part of any wiki.

Don't worry man your not the only one. I haven't gotten a single thing approved. My queue is getting big.

We all gotta keep strong, man. I'm nearly 48 hours deep on some submissions.
If it somehow got to, say three or four days without getting word, then I'd start to really go crazy.

Nothing of mine has been approved. It's been pending for over 2 days. I call shenanigans!

Indeed! I believe something is wrong.
