So I submitted a completed game a day ago, still hasn't shown up. I figured the approval would be like "whenever a mod is online and can get to it", not like "It says 48 hours, we'll have it approved on hour 48" or something. You don't really get that much completed games for it to be such a pain to have to sort through ALL of them. As far as I'm aware, you're not even approving/unapproving based on the quality of the game, just of the quality of the topic. I mean, all you'd really need to do is lock it and tell people to read if you get dumb topics that don't follow the rules.If you happen to miss one, people minimod a lot here so it's not like the people won't figure it out. Especially the older members who already figured things out and have to wait. Or for the new people who submit, don't read that approval thing, and don't know why it's not showing up (I dunno if mods even PM them to let them know what was wrong with it).
So I dunno, I'm not in favor of this system at all.
Actually, same with the forced commenting in the screenshot topics but that's another issue altogether.
