I submitted a couple of posters almost two weeks ago but they have yet to be approved. I've added posters many, many times before and it's never taken this long. Can someone look into this for me? Thanks.

I’m trying to add links for two posters now being auctioned, one on EBay one on Etsy, but both times, it said waiting for approval. A few days ago.

The add auction option unfortunately doesn’t work when I paste the EBay link.

Any idea when my posts would be approved?

Please provide a link to the auctions and a link to the items in our database and someone will take a look.

Thanks.

Out of curiosity, how long does it take to get approval for new art submissions? Thanks in advance.

If its pretty off kilter, like some of my submissions, it could take 2 months+.

I just got approval for a Chris Mars painting I submitted at least 2 months ago.

Certain artists and well know drops get submitted first just because there will be multiple ppl submitting the same drops at once. Its just easier to get those out of the way....

Thanks for the input..but I've been here for a while and have seen when it operates as it should and when it doesn't..right now the dbase is being uploaded on preferential treatment by mods, not saying you in particular but it is going on..for anyone who frequents the site and uses it this is very apparent.. how the day of an artist reveals an image it is updated asap on the dbase while other releases that were submitted are not even up yet, this is what I would call preferential treatment.
Our approval queue actually doesn't display the submissions in order by submission date, it shows them in reverse order by release date, which is why "new releases" may be approved first

The new art queue has sometimes had upwards of 250+ new submissions in it, many of which were either incorrect or incomplete and can take tons of time to get through.

As a collector of DMB and Obey myself, when I only have a few minutes in EB during the day, I tend to submit (and approve) those submissions myself so they aren't even a part of the queue. All this to say there's a lot going on behind the scenes with how the site works and how things function, and it's not about preferential treatment of members. It was great when mfaith could devote hours a day to keep everything up to date in the art approvals and corrections, but that's just not the case anymore.
