Submission queue seems to be extremely long...

So for those of us who made a few wiki submissions within the past five days, and then took a back seat, waiting for them to be reviewed before we make any more edits, life at the Bomb hasn't been easy. I know the staff and mods are doing everything they can, but when you've been waiting for your first wiki to be accepted for over five days, it's hard/impossible to feel motivated to add more to the site. The fact that my first wiki edit from over five days ago hasn't been looked at yet sufggests that it's going to be quite a while before they get it down to the preferred 24 hours.

Of course, I could do what most people have done and give myself an easier ride to 1000 points by submitting pictures, but I honestly find that extremely tedious and not a fun way to spend an afternoon. The only pictures I submit are the ones I add to my articles. People who do add lots of images, fair play to them. It's not my kind of deal.

And another thing while I'm here, why are things like images and objects and concepts and themes getting looked at by the staff and mods before the five-day old wiki submissions? Wouldn't it be a better idea to concentrate on the wikis, and then to think about reviewing the other stuff?

You seem to be confused about what constitutes a wiki. Objects, concepts, locations, games -- they're all wiki pages. Everything that's not an image goes into the same submission queue.

We're working on speeding up approvals - thanks for your patience.

Doesn't take a lot to get me confused, mate! It seems that, indeed, I don't really know what I'm talking about, but I'm fully aware that you chaps are working super hard to get it all sorted out. Thanks for setting me straight.

 I'm in the same boat as you mate, you just have to be patient. I'd also rather write lengthy articles than submit pictures as it is what I enjoy doing. I'm sure the moderators will get to our stuff soon.
