HCL contribution missing.


I wrote a HCL contribution for my Nvidia card. It isn't available. Did I say something I shouldn't?

I love LQ.

HCL items need to be approved before they appear. Your entry currently is in the queue.

Is it something that I can help with? If you want some help, I wouldn't mind with. That delay is too long in my most humble of opinions.

I'm sure Jeremy appreciates the offer but have some patience please.. Moderators just like all the members here all devote their time here when they have that spare time to help out. We're not paid, we do this cause we like to help others. If your a little more patient, everything gets processed accordingly.

jdblick, the current lag is longer then I'd like also. It's something that is being worked on.

How long does it typically take for a new HCL review to be approved and added to the list?

When I submitted one a couple of weeks ago, I figured it would probably take a week to approve it, but that doesn’t seem to be the case. In the case of my HCL, the main reason I wrote the review was because of historical and ongoing LQ questions regarding problems with the hardware, most of which are easily avoidable.

The first place I look when I am thinking about buying something is in the LQ HCL, so I certainly appreciate all the work that goes into maintaining it. Thanks!

It typically takes less than a week, but every once and a while it takes a little longer.
