This is a tough situation and irritating. You want to think the mods will fix this soon, but these delays are hurting traffic and interest in the site, you can only hope it improves soon. Way to many great photos stuck in queue, Where, when and why did this start at all?
This is beyond ridiculous , and inexcusable imo. I could understand a few days but this is just pure incompetence Need to do away with the queue altogether, go back to the way it was before this irritating situation, so we can enjoy lazy girls again
The "old-OLD" way was fraught with problems. No doubles check at all. I know as I was dubbed "King of the Doubles" for a while when I was a newbie. It's taken years to clean a lot of it up (no....not just mine!).
Then we had Chef as Mod and the doubles problem was cut way, way down as he would be on top of the queue. That worked pretty well but he could get overwhelmed at times too.
I know it' s frustrating but i also think Sam is painfully aware of the problem and is working on it.

Where, when and why did this start at all?
Please keep in mind there were never mods (as in plural) on this site, to my knowledge, dating back to at least 2010.
First, there was just the site admin, then one mod from 2012 through October 14, 2017.
It is my understanding that the site informed the mod they could no longer afford to keep him on, and inquired if he might stay on for free, which to my understanding he declined.
Further, the mod deactivated his account but kept a secondary profile to stay on as a regular user.
However, the site blocked his IP address as result of comments posted that were negative of the site, along the lines of “They (the site) don’t give a **** about the users. “
While it is my understanding that the former mod has no intentions of further commenting on how this site is run, he is extremely disappointed in how he was treated, and also feels bad for the site’s users that remain.
