Recently the comments queue has been filling up very quickly. This is mostly a good sign, as it shows the site is getting lots of contributions.
However, it’s sometimes happening so fast that the queue will fill up completely, before members or myself can clear the queue. To try to buy a bit more time before the queue jams up, I’ve just increased the comments queue size from 100 to 150 comments.
I want to take this opportunity to thank everyone who helps out in the members area. This change isn’t intended to create more work for any of you, but it hopefully will smooth out the large flutuations the comments queue has seen recently. The reviews queue max of 50 seems to work well (the site gets about 30 reviews a day), but the comments queue max of 100 seems to have been causing problems when the site is getting about 100 comments a day.
