Have you changed this now Benj? It's just that I have now resubmitted a review in this category and it was rejected as being over quota.

Stranger and stranger... Two new reviews that I submitted after posting the above went straight into my pending list.

Well, they do because they aren't instead of new reviews- your quota should not be affected by a resubmission that's already been submitted that week.



So benj, you mean if I submit a review and it gets declined within the week, then a resubmission of that review doesn't count towards the week's quota?

Also, if I submit a review but then decide to change it slightly, and then press 'update', does that count as another slot or the same one?

In my ideal world, resubmissions simply wouldn't count in the quota (or at least first-time resubmissions), since I so hate to waste my precious slots resubmitting!

And I especially hate to waste slots resubmitting when there's no feedback so I don't know what's wrong with it! I'd say I get no feedback over 50% of the time now. Don't the MERPs like me?!

Since Benj said that, whenever I have tested it it has not been the case.

The same one.

The vast majority of my rejections are blank now, presumably because whenever they ever gave a reason I could virtually always refute it. Most of the reasons that are given are still ridiculous -- I have just got a title-play only one where the title describes the whole film and another when my review has no (positive) correlation to it (the title refers to nighttime and my review refers to one of the characters having a tan!).

But I guess the MERPs' strategy is working, because although I want to resubmit these reviews I similarly feel that I cannot use up the slots when they very well may do the same thing again.

FMI, I submitted a review which was rejected as the film in question was unadded... does this count in my quota?

Er... far as I'm aware there is no such decline reason. I'm assuming it's either pending me adding the film or automatically declined as not being a film. The former will obviously use your quota, the latter will if you don't delete it from your declined pile.

Sounds like it was un-added just after I submitted the review.

I'll get deleting so.

Thanks Benj.
