I submitted several new games to the database last week, and they have yet to appear. I've received no notification that they've either been accepted or rejected. What's the usual turnaround time?

It depends. It's only one or two admins who work on them, and if they don't have time, or a high number of games get added in a short time, it can take time.
I think longest i have experienced was 4 weeks. Usual was 2 weeks. And for my last additions, i always got lucky, and had them added after 0-1 days. But then, i always added links to sites about the games in the comments section, so it was very easy to verify.

If you didn't know, you can view the current submissions here: http://www.boardgamegeek.com/userqueue.php
Quite a long list at the moments.

It takes a bit for the games to get accepted. Probably a week or so. You can check to see if the games are in the wait queue by using this ---- www.boardgamegeek.com/userqueue.php.

If you see your games listed then it will be simply a matter of time before they get accepted into the data base.

Yep, I was busy on other projects at the end of the week and over the weekend, but I'll take a look at submissions today.

Thanks very much for the replies. Just wanted to make sure the submissions hadn't disappeared into the ether.
