Default I am number 142 in line.

I just sent in a DB submission. This is my spot in line. "We have 142 submissions waiting to be processed."

Does the DB Admin need help here?

Considering the amount of data actually covered in the WHOLE database.. 142 is miniscule.

I've never had a submission sit unprocessed longer than a week.. All in all, I think our DB guru's do a masterful job.. Considering they're pushing a boulder up hill...

Is adding admins or assistants out of the question? I would have no problem taking over a county or two. Will be Mr. Mom starting in January.

I assume you don't submit many updates to rr.com. I do and I don't find anything unusual about the number 142, it is common. In my own case, it usually takes from 2-4 days for the submission to be 'worked.' Probably if you seriously want to assist this forum discussion is likely not the best way to reassure the administrators.

As an admin, I'd just like to point out we do admin on a volunteer basis. We have our regular lives and this is secondary obviously. In California we process a lot of submissions. I've easily done over 150 this year? That's about one every other day, and that's just me!

For what its worth, right now about 45 submissions are pending and an additional 95 are "owned" meaning someone has selected those to be processed. If you think about the amount of data we process, like the others said, 143 in line isn't bad.

Not bashing just trying to put it in prospective for everyone that may not understand

I do understand. I have managed other sites in previous lives. This isn't my first time here, either. I was offering help if it was needed, as I have much more free time on my hands. I have submitted many changes to the DB in the past. First one in NJ. In the past I never saw a ticket number more that 10.

And to all of you over sensitive types (lep), get away from the RF for a bit.

Well excuse me for trying to explain it to you. Good luck trying to get an admin spot with that kind of attitude.

Sorry I wasted my time.

Let me just chime in and say a big THANK YOU to all you admins who keep the database (and an ever increasing number of database enabled scanners) up to date. You guys do an amazing job!

Maybe the simplest approach is to submit a DBA application.

Hope this helps,

Did you read my post or just automatically take offense? It wasn't aimed at you. But whatever. I didnt know the admin spot was so coveted. I will keep that in mind next time I offer my services.

Yes, the admins do a great job here. All I did was offer help (yes, for free) since there is a lot to do.
