Cant approve new submissions.
You started with a questiona dn finished with a rant. This forum is for questions and assistance, not rants. To answer your question:
We need more information. Specifically what ring, and if you could also incude the details fo the emails (date, user, title perhaps), so it could be looked for then we can perhaps answer more thoroughly.
Anynumberof things can happen betwee a member submiting a site and you having a look. They could get tired of waiting and leave - this happens a LOT, even if the wait is only a day, some helper may have processed the submission, or it may have autoprocessed.
If you want your othe topic discussed feel fre to post in the general forum.
