I pushed all backlogged submissions through last night and one of the other administrators pushed seven through that were uploaded today. There are no further images awaiting validation at this time.
Just to clarify, there are four of us who are able to validate images submitted to the gallery: noidguy, href, Kishin and myself. Kishin and noidguy are located in the United States, href in the United Kingdom, and myself in Canada. We do our best to keep things running smoothly and validation happens as quickly as we are able to, but there will be times when we all are too busy to get to FC right away. Please try to be patient, I don't think we've ever made you lot wait longer than a week to push images through the system.
