A while ago, I noticed that Winter Tales is classified as a 'book'. Owning the game and having played it a couple of times, I can safely conclude that it is not, in fact, a book. I even read the BGG definition of a book, but that's not a match either. So I decided to edit that classification out.
The thing that bugs me a bit, though, is that I'm getting no feedback on the correction whatsoever. The item wasn't updated, and I have no idea to see if the correction hasn't been handled yet and is still waiting, or was rejected. I entered it a second time, but still nothing happened. Is there an indicator somewhere to see where it is in the approval process? Note that I'm certainly not expecting an actual manual response, as it would obviously be way too much work to do that for the number of edits that probably happen on a daily basis. But having any idea of what to expect would be nice

Corrections sometimes take a few days or even weeks, I have noticed.

I'm not aware of any visible queue or place to monitor submitted corrections, alas.

Corrections can also take years.

You'll get a notification in your geekmail. Normally it's just to say a correction was approved or declined, lamentably with no reminder of what the correction was about, whether it was approved in its entirety or just in part, etc. Sometimes the admins that process the corrections can also send clarification requests or instructions depending on the nature of the correction.

Yeah, that lack of reminder what it was about sometimes drives me nuts. ("I submitted a correction for this game? I wonder when, and what it was about!")

Thanks for the replies Then I'll just wait for a Geekmail to appear. It's been a couple of weeks, but I can be patient.
