Emote approval issue

Hey, Doodlez here, moderator and bttv manager for Pestily.

I submitted two emotes around 4 days ago, and they’re still not approved. They’re apparently flagged for potential NSFW content, even though there’s absolutely nothing even remotely NSFW about them.

Is there something I should be aware of?

Hiya, this happens sometimes, the content is scanned by AI. Most emotes will automatically be approved, some require manual approval. This usually takes 0-5 days. If the emote is fine, you just have to wait.

Thank you for the answer!

I thought it was a bit odd, in almost 2 years every emote we uploaded took at best 5 to 6 hours, it’s been almost 5 days now

BetterTTV unfortunately is much larger than it once was in terms of users. While we’ve automated a majority of reviews, there is still many emotes which require manual review. Thanks for your patience.
