What's up with the 'approval' process for submitted recipes?

Seems the process can take weeks. Meantime, I am unable to edit the recipe(s) I submitted. Kinda clunky and can affect data. For example, I added a recipe we use at least once per week. I made a mistake, inserting about 4X the salt we normally use. Sure would like to be able to edit, and get that figure down to real usage.

Now, until approval is (if??) graciously handed to me, I must manually subtract sodium data. For one who must track sodium & potassium levels, It sure makes things a pain.

You can't edit a recipe that you are "sharing". Your gonna have to rename it and put it back in your cookbook as a new recipe and don't share it. That way you can edit it each time you make it with different measurements or ingredients. I never share my recipes for that reason.

I'd like to know how long approval takes. I submitted recipes 8 weeks ago, and they're still not approved.

I stopped submitting recipes long time ago when i figured out that i can not edit them once i submit them. None of my recipes have ever been approved. There are multiple threads devoted to this topic and it looks like the majority of the recipes are not approved.

In my experience, recipes either get approved very quickly (within a day or two) or not at all. Not all submitted recipes get approved, and the ones that aren't approved are in permanent limbo.

I'm told that you can contact support and ask them to be un-limboed and back into the not-shared category, but I've never tried it.
