I've held off contributing a description of Cờ tư lệnh for a number of months, because it has seemed to be under review in the submission queue, though listed with a different name.

Lately I've begun to suspect there may be occasional departures from the FIFO principle. Maybe.

If approval of a game is held up due to an incomplete description, or the need to resolve some administrative concern, there may be others in the community who could help. In situations like these, how does one find out the length of time an item has been in the queue, and the general nature of the obstacle?

Thanks.

There is no way for a user to determine the date entered into the queue or if the game is held up. Only an admin can found out those things.

The collective BGG hivemind regularly identifies childhood favorites for visitors, based only on very sketchy descriptions. If game submissions are often held up in the submission queue, perhaps this community resource is being underutilized.

Given the current setup, how many months would you recommend that I hang on to my item description before adding it to the queue on top of the pending entry?

You could geekmail me and say, "I've been wanting to submit XYZ, but I've noticed it's been pending (under name ABC) for a few months now. Is there something I can help with, or should I submit a new entry?"

Thank you. I've only been watching the Cờ tư lệnh entry since February, but have begun to worry that there may be a hold up.

I've had game submissions go through the queue in few days when they have been well done, so yeah, it's definitely not a strict FIFO system.
