Sandy, shortsighted doesn't even come into it. A situation has been thrust upon the remaining moderators and we are working through it. The action log requires time. If we had time we would not have closed the queue. Time is a precious resource at MNFF at the moment. I suggest if you wish to prolong this debate you do so via PM with one of us.
Bottom line is we are doing our best for our authors. Nothing has been deliberate or malicious or with any intent to do anything but keep the site running. We are still modding and still maintaining the forums and when the site is fully operational we can visit questions regarding images in bios.
