No new submissions appear to manage
Just to re-iterate. I have logged on *immediately* I have received an email notification of a pending member submission,
not hours after or 24 hours after etc, *immediately*! :)
On clicking on Manage new Submissions, and logging in, the
Web site Submissions queue is empty and reports:
There are currently no new submissions
But, if I go to WRMail Messages there is a copy of the email sent:
BRAND NEW MEMBER submission to "Band-In-A-Box Users"
Something is wrong.
Nothing is wrong. If we see a new submission is inappropriate for a ring we move it to another ring. people apply to the biab ring with sites with no biab, or even music for that matter, content. So we move them to where they should be.
You've written about this before and we have given you pretty much the same answer previously.
Well we personally know users who have signed up, with legitimate sites. We were notified that there was a brand new member submission, but when we check there is just the email saying there was a brand new submission and no site submission to administer.
There is no record to show the site was *immediately* deleted by system administration.
Conclusion: Something is still broken.
Unlikely, but possible. Can you provide one or two of these submission emails that yielded no site? With some evidence in hand we can do some research. Hard to without any.
followup based on log files from our servers:

"We will also process new submissions after 12-24 hours if they have not been handled by the manager"
I see! You don't beleive in "Time Zones" or "Weekends Off?"
I have rings, and we meet "No new submissions appear, to manage."
The site appears half a day later as the "message" sometimes, and dis-appears half a day after I have processed them...
Obviously the "fault" of two computers updating once a day...
I quote from my wife who runs rings also...
The Japanese member registers a site,
The registration arrives in Germany too late (19:00 gmt+2) and has to wait until the next day.
The next day is "Exhibition Day" and we can't get to our computer until late, (21:00 gmt+2)....
and we will have to look in the "manage" column and not in the mail to find it!
And is that bad? Think of the user in Japan who submits a site and then as a result of the scenario you suggest waits for 2 days to hear anything. By then many people will give up on WebRing completely.
The site isn't GONE (unless it was not suited to teh ring anyway), it's simply in another place.
