Queried: 2/23
notified of offer of rep: 3/02
Partial request: 3/08
Nudge with deadline reminder: 3/11
Responded with a 'step aside' and said it was the first she's heard that I had an offer of rep. Was 'polite': 3/11

Not sure if Query Manager had an error or if she lost/forgot my email, but believe me, I sent her the notification of my Offer Of Rep.

@tkm256 Agents will often close to submissions to catch up on their backlist/read partials and fulls. Agents will reopen when the backlog is at a manageable level/need more queries to find what they're looking for. If you look at her data explorer, it seems she's been responding throughout the closure and not just when she opened.
