I've posted a few BB's for certification in the last few days and noticed that they had not been commented on by staff? Either for certification or requests for more info/pictures.

I didn't know if there was a problem/delay with the staff getting notified or if people were just busier than usual?

Thought I would mention it here in case there was a glich.

I posted 4 in nest ( sweep, rug, burnables; dishes) and one in food prep (pressure can) and one for BB 20 certification. Also noticed a couple who had posted after me in those threads. One got cert and other not yet.

Thanks

If you haven't heard from staff about the BB, maybe use the 'report' button to get our attention?

Ok, I felt weird using the  "report" button but I can do that if it happens again.

Thanks

We are talking about software changes so non-staff can verify BBs.  Further, to get PEP1 certified, you will need to verify some BBs.

Did they all get addressed?  If not, post a link here to them and someone will take a peek.  If they sneak past us it's easy for them to disappear.  

Can't wait for the software improvements!!!

A moment of perspective, if I may: everybody who is genuinely mondo growie committed is outside growing their brains out, and working their butts off. Harvesting and preserving. Like time and tide, the garden waits for no-one; use it or lose it. Be patient.

Sorry if I seemed impatient.

I know that people can get busy which is why I started the question/thread with that possibility.

It was just unusual in my admittedly somewhat limited experience for BB posts to go several days without a response so I was concerned that there might have been a glitch going on.

Glad to know that everything is fine and that life just got busy for people.
