Entry Moderating Time Answered

How long does it take for them to decide wether my contest entry should be accepted or not? I submitted entry "A" to contest "A", and I submitted entry "B" to contests "B", "C", and "D" only an hour after entry "A".

Entry "A" got accepted into contest "A" in 17 hours, entry "B" got rejected from contest "B" in 20 hours, and it's been over 2 days and I have not heard anything about contests "C" or "D". 

How long will this process take?

Best answer is "it depends" - some contests get swamped with last-minute entries, and it depends how many contests are on at any one time, and how many contests a particular member of staff is running at once etc etc.

They strive to go through the contest entries as quickly as possible, but it depends how many they get at a given time. The staff member for contest "A" might have had a lot less entries to deal with when you submitted yours and could go through them quicker; whereas the staffer responsible for contest "C" (and possibly "D" also) could be overwhelmed with a large number of entries, and will need more time before being able to get to yours.

It should normally only take two working days.
