Noticeable delays in processing contributions

Has anyone else noticed that there is now a noticeable lag in processing contributions? Nothing I have contributed today (and it's just after 11 pm here on the east coast of the us) have been processed. This means I end up doing a lot of extra work because I edit a lot of tv shows the day they air and I don't know whether anyone has entered the data because it isn't showing up in 30-60 minutes like it used to. My first contribution was over 11 hours ago and nothing has been processed from it.

Yes, same here.  It's not the first day either, although yesterday wasn't too bad for me.  My first updates today were submitted almost 12 hours ago and not one has been processed.  I too edit programs the day they air so I feel your pain.  It also makes it hard when you need to create a new person from scratch but can't add them to subsequent programs because the first one is still pending.  It's been very frustrating lately.

Same here. Nothing I have submitted yesterday has been processed. That being said, I remember the days when that was normal and you'd have to wait about a week for most submissions to be acted upon, so I guess it's all a matter of perspective. :)

I remember those days as well. But now that they are giving us insight on to whether our changes are accepted or declined, I see a lot of declined edits because of this because someone else had already entered the data but it hadn't been processed. I wonder how that affects the confidence score that I'm sure IMDb uses to judge the validity of the data.

I came here to check if I was the only one, I regularly post reviews,  usually they get published pretty quickly, I must have had 4 or 5 reviews this year that took longer time but no big deal...

But the last review I posted took 48 hours to get published.

2 reviews I posted yesterday in the morning are still pending...

And one review I've just sent... well, I don't expect much now...

I don't understand why all of a sudden it takes more time and I like to see my previous contribution accepted before getting to a new one, I wish IMDb could get back to the usual rythm...

Hi All -

There are some internal operational issues that have been identified as causing the delays and slowness in processing recent data submissions. 

As mentioned within the community announcement that was posted today, we are working on improving our processing speed and are expecting a reduction in delays over the coming days.

I hope this helps - thanks in advance for your patience!
