FUBAR goofs all being declined

Hi,

Can someone please explain why all goofs for this show get declined as "Unable to verify"?

There seems to be a pattern of bizarre moderation on some shows (especially newer ones) and it's infuriating to spend time contributing only to get a nonsense decline. If it's a case of "too new, not enough moderators have seen it" or something then why not hide the edit buttons until you are ready to handle it?

Hi Jernau-

In order for our staff to help, can you post the 18-digit submission reference number(s) for these goof contributions?

Once we have all of this information, we can investigate further.

Cheers!

I'm not sure what's going on here these days but another set of contributions all got declined, this time with "We did not capture a specific reason during processing". This seems hopelessly vague given the nature of the entries wasn't complex. Numbers were: 
230610-143715-601000

230610-143956-009000

230610-214803-890000

230610-220341-620000

Apologies that this is not directly related to the original post but it's very frustrating to spend time contributing to a site and get such a non-sensical response.

Hi,

I'm really sorry to bump an old thread but it seems something really isn't working with the moderation these days and it's very off-putting as a contributor. 

These three unrelated submissions were all rejected with "unable to verify".
230823-212613-564000
230823-213616-842000
230823-222931-090000
Based on past experience this seems to be a very misleading response and bizarrely re-submitting with less explanation or justification for the submission gets it accepted. Not in this case though as they failed again for the same reason.
230824-164911-689000
230824-165331-252000
230824-165540-744000
These posts can all be easily verified with google using the information within them.

This sort of thing isn't new here but it seems to be getting more and more common lately and the guidelines clearly aren't being applied consistently either with those published or between different submissions.

If there's something I/we (I know I'm not the only one getting this) can do to improve things on our end please tell me.
