Normally when i update a review, a mod always rejects it in like, 30 minutes, but i putted a review in queue 2 days ago, and i haven't had any response, is this normal? This review was also first rejected saying that it could be accepted but that it was hard to read because i had 2 paragraphs close to each other and didn't leave a space after a period, does that affect any of the time to accept the review?

From what I've read and learned, whenever you re-submit a review it will go to the back of the review queue again and the moderators will prioritize other reviews they hadn't checked yet over yours. So, just be patient and wait, the guys also have to put up with their real lives!

Be patient. Oftentimes when a review gets rejected by a certain mod and resubmitted, the other staffers will wait and let that mod decide what to do due to familiarity with the original reason for rejection, etc.

At least that is how I've seen it. Be patient.

Quite a few factors affect when the few individuals who tend to handle the review queue and whether or not they check the review queue on any given day and how much time they spend there. Those factors include, but are not limited to:

-The quality of other reviews in the queue. If there are a dozen shitty, overlong reviews, I'm probably going to close the window before I start writing vitriolic rejection messages and being grumpy in general.
-The weather in Connecticut. If it's a nice day, I'll probably be outside instead.
-How many cans of Steel Reserve GuntherTheUndying has had. I'm not sure if more or less make the review queue go faster.
-Is Metantoine watching Star Wars? Tough luck.
-Did BastardHead have a rough day at work? If he did, he probably took Advil, which coincidentally reduces the swelling of his ego and makes him more inclined to moderate reviews and less inclined to unleash the fucking fury on some Finnish fairy metal band.
-Is Morrigan playing Dark Souls today? (yes)
-Is there an 80% review for Cemetary Rapist in the queue? If so, at least one mod fell off their chair laughing at this line: "Finally, we come to the vocals. My girlfriend hates these vocals but I personally don't know what to think of them."
-I should probably mention that Gutterscream does a lot of good work in the review queue but I'm always hoping he's writing more reviews instead because he's awesome.
-Shoutout to Diamhea too. If it's legs day at the gym his arms probably don't hurt so he can crush the entire queue.
-Is any staffer's time being used to reply to posts about why reviews haven't been accepted yet? Yeah, that's probably a delay too. I read a few today and had a good laugh at Apteronotus' review of "Sadness" but sometimes it's hard to read more than half a dozen reviews at 10pm.

It depends if I can still taste the aluminum byproducts when I take a swig. So, maybe four or five, and faster.

Just so happens I managed to eek out a Razor review over the weekend. Not my best, but hey. Every once in awhile perusing the review queue gets my reviewing ire up, but usually it just makes me question my decision to not become that English teacher I almost was. I mean, I'd have this whole summer off.
