Nomination still 'IN QUEUE' after being upgraded

I have upgraded a submission however my nomination is still appearing as 'IN QUEUE' rather than 'IN VOTING' it has been like this for two days now and it is confusing me as to why, if anyone knows how to fix this etc. would be greatly appreciated.
You posted this in the archive section so you're unlikely to get it seen.
Upgrading a nomination doesn't immediately push it into voting. If you're in a slow area it can still take several days to go into voting. Once it's there though it'll get seen by a wider review audience than if you hadn't upgraded it.
The time taken for a nomination to go into voting depends on a lot of factors such as backlog of nominations in the queue and the number of reviewers in the locality. It may take sometime for nominations to go into voting even if they have been upgraded due to the aforementioned factors. We assure you that an upgraded submission will take less time to reach a decision and a decision will be made in more timely manner.
There is also the case where if your nomination was less than a day or two old when it got upgraded then the upgrade may send it into limbo for 3-5 days before it enters voting. There is a 24+ hour hold on all nominations so that we have time to log in to wayfarer and make any edits we need before something enters voting. If the upgrade happens during this hold time then the hold gets extended for some unknown reason. You should see some movement in 1-3 days.
