Perhaps I'm wwrong, but my understanding is that members don't get credit toward membership for their submissions until the books are added to the collection. Is that right? If so, then keeping the books in the admin queue for so long is detrimental to the members. I know of one member who's membership will expire at the end of the month. She has several books ready, or almost ready, to submit, but it won't do her any good, even if she validates them herself, if they're going to sit in the admin queue. I think the ones I have sitting there, except possibly one, were submitted by a member who has more than enough credits, but maybe not. I lost track. Gustavo, are you still the only one to approve the books, and if so, do you pay any attention to who the submitter is and when their memberships expire, and approve in that order? That would make sense, but probably is too time-consuming.
