This conversation has been merged. Please reference the main conversation: Where's my review?

Around two days ago, I reviewed six movies (Downsizing, Call Me By Your Name, The Shape Of Water, The Disaster Artist, Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri and I,Tonya) and an episode of a sitcom The Office (the American version) and I still can't see them on my reviews list. At first, the mail; that I do get after I submit a review, arrived late than usual and then all the reviews that I have submitted (after Saturday, perhaps) has not yet been displayed. So I am worried that is there an issue in my profile or my reviews or what?

Nice to know I am not the only person having issues with pending reviews.

I have several outstanding reviews from the last few days. The system has gone from almost instantaneous posting of reviews to gridlock.

I was just worried that maybe either I am doing something wrong or maybe there is some issue in my profile. But, glad to know that its nothing from my side.

Exactly the same with me for four of my reviews written 2-3 days ago. When I inquired to the help desk, I was told that the reviews had not yet had time to be processed and that with the large amount of data they've had that submission approval times can vary. I saw the link they provided about processing times and there is a lot of unprocessed data for user reviews alone, the figures for unprocessed user review submissions being double today than they were yesterday. That's most likely to be the (very understandable) reason, but I was thinking whether there is a temporary backlog (which did happen a few times but mostly not to this extent or this long) or a bug.


When I inquired again, yes this is the second time this has happened in a week for me (except the other time the delay was shorter), I was assured that I had definitely submitted the reviews (having worried that that was the problem) and that they were still pending verification. I understand the worry completely though, this rarely happened when the old review layout was in place and especially not more than once in a short space of time.


It is very strange that there have been reviews I've written since the reviews still pending that were approved quickly or automatically. Which naturally makes one worry as to whether there is a problem with the reviews that are still awaiting verification. Hope this is sorted out soon. I've actually not written a review in two days in worry it would happen again and whether there was actually something wrong with my account. That's actually been really frustrating, having been writing reviews for several completest and reviewing-all-episodes-of-various-shows quests, many of which I had just started or getting well into.
