@Sperophim: i think in one of crumpets replies, they said they were working on getting mor moderators, that should speed up the process happy

I dont make pattersn but I assume pretty quick because my images only take like 3 minutes to get approved.

@sad_kids_klub: That’s nice of you to care about me, thanks. Don’t worry, they won’t ALL be 12 hour days. I couldn’t physically do that. Sleep and exercise are essential for me. My goal is to have a somewhat functional pattern maker up by December 31st. It just definitely won’t be fully-featured and may not work (or work well) for everyone depending on what browsers people are using.

I’ve already got that much done since I’ve been working on this for a while, but I’m hoping to fix/add a few more things and polish it before I make it public.

@Crumpet: Oh boy! I hope you don't overwork yourself, remember to prioritize your mental health, especially if you're on vacation. But I look forward to seeing the new pattern maker!

As Sperophim said, our focus is currently on the new pattern maker, because without a new pattern maker, we won't have any new patterns submitted at all after December 31st. Once that's running somewhat smoothly, we'll be able to look at improving the approval system and getting more moderators. Currently, only one person is approving patterns, and he's very busy.

The current approval system was working reasonably well until we had a sudden influx of new members recently. We weren't ready for this many new members and patterns. This whole website's active staff is literally just me (the developer of the site) and Justin (who's an admin/moderator).

I'm on vacation from work starting from this weekend (through the end of the year), but I've got to use all that time to work on the pattern maker, like 12 hour days >.<

the approval system is... odd to say the least. Personally, I've never had any patterns accepted, but I see new patterns about once a month.

the approval rate has been really really slow lately. From my time here I'd say a new batch of patterns uploads every 2 to 3 weeks, but it's closer to three. when things do get approved, the mods tend to only approve some of the most recent patterns, so if you submitted ur patterns a while before the mods upload a new batch theres a pretty slim chance they'll ever get approved. :/

To be fair I think there's not actually very many active mods to approve patterns anymore and they all have their own lives outside this site so even though it's dissappointing it's understandable. The mods also are concerned with making a new pattern maker since the current one uses flash which will be deactivated on all internet browsers at the end of the month.
