    Anyone else having domains sitting in 'Pending Review' status for days/weeks @ Afternic?

    I believe if your name has certain common keywords like 'girls', etc, it has to be manually reviewed, usually it'll take 1 or 2 days, lately it's been taking a lot longer, like weeks.

    That's what I did last night, waiting on response. I had a dozen domains parked there while they were pending review, something told me to move them over to sedo while they still pending and one sold last night at BIN, that same buyer would've otherwise seen a contact number and no form or anything.

    I have found that often if one deletes and relists at Afternic the second time their system instantly approves them.

    I've even had it where if I delete it and read right away it still goes to in review but if I delete it wait a little bit then re add it's fine. I dont really understand their system but that's my first step bow is to delete wait then read thrn if it's still in review I'll just send an email.

    I usually just send an email to the support or if you want delete/add again until it fix the issue, when it gets locked under review, they are not really "reviewing" anything

    I'd say that the "review" never starts now... So I always email them asking to review. I add domains in batches - 1 or 2 times a month, so it is not too hard. Not to say that it is how the things should work. Pending review technically means that no user action should be required.

    I just did an updated bulk upload. 18 names are In review including some that previously were already listed on my account without issue. I emailed AN but it will probably take a couple of days, at least, to get this straightened out, meanwhile nobody can see the domains for sale if they are searching.

    @Joe Styler this system is so broken it is frustrating. I know not everyone wants DNS verification but please do consider it as an option (not a requirement) to automatically get domains out of "In Review" when they are given that status to to questions of ownership.

    I noticed - and frequently - that domain status changes (both positive and negative) may occur in night hours (U.S. timezone). Sometimes 100% OK domain may switch to pending review, or vice versa. So, waiting until next morning before doing anything extra makes sense sometimes...

    We are considering it as an option.

    That would be great.

    To their credit your team responded to my email quicker than I was expecting, but it would be nice to not have to bother them at all for this. I still don't understand why so many already listed domains switched to in review too, only 7 of those 18 were new ones so I expected that of them because they came from other domainers but the other 11 that were already listed on my account really took me off guard and frustrated me.
