Usually my movie/TV reviews are approved in about 1-2 hours. Right now I am waiting on three reviews to be approved, one posted about 11 hours ago, one from about 4 hours ago and one from 1 1/2 hours ago. Is there an issue with approving reviews at the moment?
I'm having the same problem, and am glad you've brought this up. I have two reviews that have yet to be approved, one written yesterday but re-submitted today because I thought it would make a difference and the other a couple of hours ago. Like you, my reviews are approved within an hour and a half of being submitted. My guess is that there is a temporary backlog due to a technical problem, this situation has happened a few times and that's nearly always been the problem, that should sort itself out very soon. Just in case, copy and paste your reviews into Word, which will save you from forgetting what you've written which is really annoying. So glad I'm not alone with this issue, and you have saved me from querying about it.
I think the issue extends to the plot summary page as well. Have written plot summaries for four movies in the last day and none have shown up. I realise not every one will show up, but the pages I was writing on hardly had any summaries to start with and were ones I was confident my summary would show up on.
