I now have over 300 submissions waiting (obvious duplicates), which are over 3 days old.
Never had to wait this long.
Are some staff members fired?

Not fired. I hope.
Overloaded with work.
The new Home Page experience is slowing things up along with someone that is MIA...
Michelle.
I noticed that she has not replied here in over 4 months.

Are you checking the status resources provided?
https://contribute.imdb.com/contributions/history
and a different version:
https://contribute.imdb.com/updates/history

And consulting the processing times:
https://contribute.imdb.com/times

If you're submitting duplicates, you're just adding to the backlog.

I merged the duplicates. But they still need to be 'approved'. But I see Michelle isn't here anymore, I guess that explains a lot.

They all are World Cup matches which were already in the database in the series as episodes, someone added these duplicates as feature films, and some staff member approved all of them for some reason.
Examples:

200220-115246-896000
200220-115401-006000
200220-115719-608000
200220-120129-439000

The processing times page (linked above) shows that title merges from 19 February or later may still be in the queue. This means there is no need to inquire about them here, unless you have any further information that might help expedite the processing.

Hi MJ, writing in to GetSat for a submission still pending won't result in faster processing. If you have a submission that you believe was handled incorrectly, please feel free to reach out then.

She did not say so specifically, but they want you to use the https://help.imdb.com/contact method if those submissions are not still pending.

Please do not write in to either GetSat or the contact site for a submission that is pending within those processing times. It won't result in faster processing.
