I thought for sure this batch failed because of how long it was taking to review. Today though, I got...

In the UK, we had a 4 day weekend at Easter, 3 work days and then another 4 day weekend.  I think a lot of people took the 3 days off and had an 11 day holiday.  That might account for the longer review time.

Yeah usually if it takes longer than a week, it means it's failed. If it passes, usually get confirmation within 48 hours.

Yeah  mine went through last night too but didn't get an email confirmation that it had gone through.  It'd been so long I forgot what I uploaded.

Also noted that the email notifications are not coming through as regularly as usual (sometimes does not get at all)?

At least a nice surprise for a change LSD72?  ;)

Alamy's 4/19 blog about holiday QC time gave a head's up about extended QC times:
 http://www.alamy.com/Blog/contributor/archive/2011/04/19/4868.aspx

My batches starting with a 4/22 submission passed 5/5 (and based on A forum posts, new QC results started earlier that week), and then my new submit passed hours later, so it looks like once the holidays (Easter, Royal Wedding...) passed they caught up with QC fast.

It was a nice surprise for me... keeps me at 100% acceptance rate at least. I thought I had my first failure there.
