Curious as I had one that went through in less than 24 hours, and an attempted revision is going on 3 days.

What's a good ballpark to wait on approval/declination before assuming something went wrong and trying again?

Check the pending file queue...

http://www.boardgamegeek.com/files/boardgame/all/page/1?file...

You can save that in your QuickBar for future reference...

If the file gets rejected you'll get notified by email.

Files take a while. Also depends on what kind of file. The files are each downloaded and checker for viruses and such. So a pdf file is probably going to approved faster than a Excel worksheet with lots of customized macros.

After uploading a couple of hundred files, I would say the average is about 3.

It mostly depends on current volume of submissions and the amount of time that our mostly volunteer file mods have to go through them. Though it is usually quicker, a week isn't unusual.

Quote:
Since every file needs to be downloaded, tested, and evaluated, there can be a significant delay for approval of files. While the delay may be as short as a few days, it is more typically 2-3 weeks, and can stretch to 4 weeks during conventions or vacations.



there are currently 154 pending files for the BGG domain

in the past week 375 files have been approved
... check Recent Additions, then filter on files
