I know this topic is getting old but, I uploaded about 9 or 10 days ago and still waiting, but that's not my gripe. Here is my current status:
There are a total of 3033 photos waiting to be processed on the upload page. Of those, 1 are yours.
830 photos and 130 photographers are currently before you in the queue (the number of photos may increase, not the number of photographers).
Yesterday there was only 730 before me, why is it now 830? Does the upload process go by the photographer?

Also this is not a gripe but I wish it could be possible to have a way of processing photos more fair for the photographers, after all we are the source for this site and we deserve a little more respect.
To Johan, could it be technically possible to process the photos in the same order they are uploaded? and at the same time the "VIP" list could also be used to save time to you when needed.
I have photos waiting to be processed for 3 weeks, and in the last days I'm having always between 400 and 500 photos ahead because there might be a photographer in the middle who is constantly uploading photos and getting them processed.
Again I say this is not an obstinacy or a gripe or whatever, I just want to hear serious opinions from the administration regarding a fair way of treating the photographers of this site.

you wrote the answer in your posting:
"the number of photos may increase, not the number of photographers"
So if a photographer who is before you in the queue does new uploads, the picture will be processed before yours.
But you are a lucky guy. "Only" 130 photographers before you. Since two days there are 419 before me. As the number is not changing since then, it seems that Johan has limited time these days, so that he can only process the pictures from the "VIP List"!
I think this is a good idea to process the pics in the order they have been uploaded and not ordered by photographer.
