In the last couple of days, every time I add an episode, it takes one, sometimes two days, to be visible, and the cast even longer. This seems recent, at least to me, about a week ago, I used to do the same thing, and the episode (and subsequently, the cast) would be visible in a couple of minutes. Why is this?

Hi RichieM,

Thanks for your post.

If your contribution is still not visible after the period has passed on our contribution times page, you can post the submission reference here and we can look into this further for you.

So, in the last couple of days I added multiple episodes of various shows, and noticed one thing. If the show is numbered by season (like 1.5 or 2.10, etc) the episode will be added to site faster, and the cast will follow up shortly afterwards. However, if it is not numbered, like the various daily portuguese talkshows I added, the episode will take much longer to appear on the site and the cast will be pending indefinitely, like it is happening now.  Since these talkshows air everyday, a lot of stuff will end up on the pending section :/

If these contributions continue not visible, I'll post their reference number.

Even if I try to add the cast to the episodes, that will be rejected, because it counts as a repeat of what's in the datebase, even if it is pending...
