Games accepted for deletion not being removed from the database

Hey there.

I've been adding a lot of data to the database recently and since everything was getting accepted, I decided to start helping to moderate the queue myself. A week or so ago I marked two games for deletion as they were duplicates of pre-existing entries. These were quickly accepted 3-0 and marked as approved, but they are still present in the database and still get picked up by Launchbox when searching for metadata. Added games and media seem to appear immediately after being accepted, so is there a wait time on things being deleted or is this some sort of bug?

These are the 2 games I marked for deletion:

https://gamesdb.launchbox-app.com/games/details/156235

And these are the pre-existing entries:

https://gamesdb.launchbox-app.com/games/details/32890

https://gamesdb.launchbox-app.com/games/details/124620

and here are screenshots showing they were approved:

I'm afraid this is quite an old bug in the database system:

I've simply just resubmitted deletion requests. Sometimes works quite fast or takes multiple tries.

Thanks for the link to the other thread. I'll try marking them for deletion again and see if they succeed this time. If not I'll just move on and try to forget they exist :D
