Normally I won't complain on the forums if my contributions take a little while to be approved. I know that there isn't an army of approvers out there ready to hit the enter button at a moment's notice. But to contribute something in April of one year and still have those items pending in October of that same year, well that deserves a complaint. The items in question are a bunch of Nintendo 64 screenshots for Paper Mario. I've been wondering over the course of these last months; are there any approvers for Nintendo 64 left?
I can't answer your question, but looking at this you can see there are two spots open for Nintendo 64 approvers. It seems there is quite a shortage of approvers.
And now I have waited almost a month for the approval of a bunch of contributions for Nintendo DS. Are there no approvers left there too? I get the impression from the front page of MobyGames that contributions for Windows and minor platforms go through all the time. But I see very little of that when it comes to Nintendo 64 and Nintendo DS.
For the DS I was probably the most active approver, but I'm currently on an indefinite hiatus.
Nintendo 64 queue has always been rather slow with approvals in my experience. Not sure who has access to it, but I believe someone recently was added to that queue.
Yeah... I think PC has the biggest bunch of active approvers, and some of the smaller "niche" platforms have very passionate few instead who get things through faster. I think the mid generation consoles are a little sloggier at the moment (Ps1, Ps2, N64 etc). I'm part responsible lately since I haven't really had time to sit down much and get approving done for the ps1 and ps2.
So, sorry to all of you people out there who are waiting for stuff to be approved in those queues... I'll get back into it and whirl through all of those pending items like nobody's business as soon as things settle down a little in real life for me.
