Man... you just won't let go.  Let's assume you are right; ALL images are being reviewed by robots.  Now what?  Is it fair?  We all get the same reviewers. 
What should we do?

Really can not see what automation has to do with this thread.  :o

My point is just that we'll never know how reviewing really works, and don't expect them to tell us.

That is not the question here. The question is merely that the review time used to be 3 days and in exceptional cases up to 10 days, up to a bit that a month ago . Now there are a large number of contributors having 30 day + reviews. Did not read all the posts, but I doubt if someone asked how they do their reviews.

actually, CD, the thread started as an informational post, linking us back to a thread at SS.
Then it went in many different directions with some extreme speculation -- everywhere from automated reviews to covering the SS intentions for concentration on their move to OffSet.
I think SS reps have been more than forthcoming with several long explanations for the long reviews.  There seems, however, to be no accepting any explanation -- just wild speculation on what is REALLY going on.

You can't fool all the people.   :P

Well then this tread, with the title "Answer for long reviews", has been all over the place and I need to apologize to stockastic for singling him out for going off topic.

is that what "atomization" means in this context? I was confused by that, I haven't heard it used much.  ???

100,000 images per day to review!! wowser. maybe they need to implement a stricter similars policy.

I just did a random search on "coffee with biscuit" (yeah, it's afternoon teatime here, coffee is on my mind). That search yields a lot of similars and sadly, a boatload of keyword spamming.

Maybe a stricter similars policy would tighten up the submissions?

ok, i'm off to make a coffee! :)

Just as info, I have now established that if one batch is held up (pushed to "Tier 2"), the rest of your batches will be held up by that 1. So, if you are waiting for weeks, have a look at your eldest batch, the problem will probably be located in that batch. In my case it was my PR which did not contain the original image I worked from. After that was rectified the batch was reviewed and 24 hour later the rest "became unstuck" and reviewed.

Hope this info might perhaps help a few of you in similar dilemmas.

I did the same thing, added PRs to a couple of my vectors in the queue, and even deleted a vector from the queue, and my submissions are still frozen. It's been over five weeks that I've been unable to add anything to my portfolio, and my downloads are drying up as a result. It's depressing to watch my portfolio slowly die from neglect and not being able to do anything about it. I tried emailing them, politely asking if they've forgotten me, but no response.  I'd delete all my vectors in the queue if I thought it would do any good, since most of my illustrations are bitmaps.  I picked a bad time to upload vectors.

Allsa, I got a reply to my support ticket of 6 days ago today, stating that they looked at my images in review and did not find the backlog (obviously, because the problem was already resolved).

I am afraid that the reviewers might not notice the changes you made by adding the PRs and it will not help drawing their attention to it at this stage with a support ticket, because it seems like the tickets are backed up as well. 

Seems like you will just have to wait it out  :-\

Got reviewed last night after about 6 weeks for many files, longest wait ever for SS, but thankfully about 90 files approved out of 100.

I wonder if "focus" rejection is the top of the select list.

I wouldn't really care how long it takes for SS to review my new stuff, as long as they sell my portfolio. And that's what they doing pretty well. And that's what counts at the end of the day (or month).

10 days is nothing unusual. My last review was 8 days. SS advises between 7-10 days

If I remember well it is written something about 72 hours for review time in the site (or maybe it was pond5 or Yay :D :D).
No, I am not hurry at all, just curious to understand if there was some problem, as this last weeks SS had a lot

I had my most recent lot done in 7 days, 22 images came through overnight my time (about 9 hours ago).  The times have taken closer to 10 days though in the past.
