> Is there not a state other than “closed” that frees up a report slot?

Sorry, no. I think the only states are 'Open', 'In Progress', and 'Closed'.

Just glancing at your open reports, they are ones that require a lot of research and then discussions with the people involved. I am not working your reports, but a month or three to handle some of those would not be unexpected since it involves training and a very long commitment to make the changes necessary.

So, it's not unexpected that they are still sitting.

For me, when I work reports like that, I replicate the report myself with my own report so that the original reporter can open new reports, and the existing problem is still tracked but in a way that doesn't prevent the original reporter (you) from opening new reports.

I'm not saying it's a perfect situation, but that's how the current process works, and the reports you've reported really do take a long time to work.

What I'll do is claim your reports and then translate them to new reports so they can be documented, processed, and tracked, and so there's an audit trail.

I don't know that I can work those reports - I've got several that are also months-long efforts to work through. But I'll at least free up your slots so you can open new ones.

As for the merge someone else will have to work those, I don't have any open slots myself right now.

In the end I've claimed those reports and will work them. Since I need to contact people on other sites to get some of them done, give me a few days/weeks for turnaround.

If you'd like a follow up when they're done, please send me a PM and I'll keep you updated on their progress.
