11/20/22 - Polite form rejection: "We're sorry, but your project is not a fit for our agency at this time, so we will have to pass. Thank you for considering us and best of luck with your future queries."
Wish it had been a positive reply, but at least they responded, and very quickly. I much prefer this to wondering.

online query process was interrupted by a power failure (portent!); rebuild may or may not have been successful. Further, site's Submissions page has clickable link in text ("pitch us . . .") but doesn't/didn't seem to allow identifying particular agent. Oh, well. It's done and gone.

Sent a query on the 20th to Sandy, but I chose to use the email option rather than the form option. I notice on her timeline that she is prompt on replies to the form queries but seems to have not replied to any of her email queries over the last 90 days. Should I perhaps resend my query via the form? are email queries being lost in the shuffle? Or is it just easier to reply to the forms and ghost the emails?

Any thoughts anyone?

Sent message via QM and got an immediate form response saying that if has been 120 days or more, it was safe to assume it was a pass. But, from other comments below, it seems some are getting responses long after that, so who knows?
CNR: 7/5/21
(Note: I have submitted to her previously with another manuscript and received a reply within a month.)

Two days after sending this query I received the list of agents I would pitch to in Virtual Pitchfest and Ms Harding was on my list. When I met with her on Zoom she said she would consider Pitchfest as my query as she had not yet read my form query.
Partial Request on Pitchfest. 60 pages
Nudge January 10, 2021
CNR 1/19/2021 I thought live pitch sessions would result in a response, even if only "Sorry, it's a pass for me."
ER 4/30/2021 Revise that CNR. My form letter rejection came 9 1/2 months after Pitchfest and from "The Spencerhill Team". This process is so disappointing.
