Is it necessary to have some special rank on MA forum,or to be approven by admins to start writing reviews on forum?I'm asking because,I have uploaded 2 reviews (Meshuggah and Pantera) 2 days ago,and I am still waiting for moderators/admins to confirm that they have either accepted,or rejected review.I was careful to write the reviews according to rules.

Checking reviews is relatively time consuming for the staff (you have to imagine, they have to read every submitted review to see if it fits the rules, and have to check if it's plagiarised or submitted before the release date) and there aren't many moderators checking the review queue, so it can take a couple of days for a review to be checked. Just be patient.

Well,I have given the reviews to them more then a week ago,and I still didn't even get the e-mail in which they confirmed or rejected my review.And,of course,reviews are not placed on Metal Archives.????Someone can explain?

Yes. I can. There are exactly 31 reviews that have been in the queue longer than yours, due to a considerable backlog, and my intention is to start working on them from the oldest ones, those submitted on Nov 2nd. As a lame explanation, my nuts stay together only because of a shitload of stitches, Derigin has some important stuff to attend to, and the others seem to be busy with their real lives. We have those as well, believe or not.

I will ignore your reviews until I've killed 31 reviews submitted after your reviews from the queue. Impatient people are annoying, and my own patience wears thin very easily right now.

Ok,I sincerly apologize if I have been impolite,it was not my intention,I was only interested in that when can I expect reviews to be on the site.
It is not that I would like to provoke,or something.I was just wondering why did I have to wait for a week or more,and,for example,the reviews of Atheist's Jupiter,they got their reviews on the site immediately after the album's release.

Thank you,and excuse me once again if my posts seemed harsh or impolite,but I really didn't want to flame or insult.
