I obsessively watch the timeline on Query Tracker, stupid I know. And it feels like every agent I submit to either skips around a ton (including skipping my query, of course) or just stops responding to queries for a month after getting to mine (I might be exaggerating here). It's driving me nuts! I really just need them to put me out of my misery already.

Can anyone give me some reasons why they might skip around so much?
Unverified user-submitted data is always going to be patchy. It's always going to be incomplete and full of holes, and since it appears to be causing you genuine unhappiness I would strongly suggest you stop looking at it. The reason it skips around is because you're only seeing a tiny fraction of the real story.

Querytracker data isn't, and will never be, reliable. You're not gaining anything positive by looking at it.
