Resources with that are "Featured" or "Essential" should be modded first than normal resources, also resources should be modded in order FIFO (first in, first out), there are resources that are in the section like 6 or 7 months and nobody mods them lol.

Deeming resources to be featured or essential is decided after something is accepted. In the case of something that's obviously going to be deemed essential (obvious example Lunar Magic), I don't think it matters whether something takes 1 day or 3 as long as the ASM mods are still doing their jobs properly because it's not like people aren't going to use the new Lunar Magic because it's sitting in the waiting queue and not accepted.

Also resources are already supposed to be modded FIFO. I yelled at Erik about old waiting resources in the section just yesterday. #smrpg{sick}

Yes, but as long as it gets announced. I wasn't made aware of 3.01 after like a week.
I'm pretty sure not everything is being moderated FIFO, but also I don't know if that applies to literally all sections or not, so if you could clarify how strict is this in the different sections (or if it changes with events like remoderations and such) would make it clearer. I think it generally shouldn't be such a mess, except like in this case, as anonimzwx said where the resources have been a considerable time waiting to be moderated (and not only in the SMW Patches section, also in the SM64 sections and not-so-long ago in the Documents section too).

And I have to agree with Koopster, it feels weird you didn't do the classic news article to announce LM3.01, as it has always been done with every Lunar Magic update (I noticed about the update when I saw "v3.01" in the Lunar Magic suggestion thread).

I found it weird too, but apparently the file for 3.00 was edited to include 3.01. I don't know why didn't they submit a new file or alternatively made another announcement. I was made aware when I was taking a peek at the section.
I think the issue is much more deep than that (I have plan in making a detailed thread about the current way that section moderation works), but I believe some kind of priority moderation would be interesting for popular resources like Lunar Magic and SA-1 Pack.

I remember when I submitted SA-1 Pack v1.27, I added a workaround to fix a softlock caused by Snes9x 1.57 and earlier. Opening any ROM with SA-1 Pack v1.26 and earlier on Snes9x without AddmusicK installed it would not boot at all. That was caused because Snes9x 1.57 overclocks SA-1 to 13 MHz and because of that the chip was running so fast that it ended up desyncing with the SPC700 and generating a deadlock on the SPC upload routine (tl;dr SA-1 was too fast and I needed to slowdown it a bit). But still people were reporting the same problem for me because they kept downloading SA-1 Pack v1.26 and they never looked up that there was a version 1.27 waiting. After three months waiting, I decided to remove 1.27 and replace with 1.30/1.31 (which is still waiting until now as well) because of the LM 3.00 release but then people are still reporting that Snes9x issue. If SA-1 Pack was moderated faster that inconvenience to a number of SMW hackers would not be happening at all.

That made me a bit sad, but with the way moderation works and the patch remoderation going on, there is not much that can be done sadly (especially considering the current ASM team is pretty small, even more that Telinc1 dedicates mostly to site coding).

Probably if LM 3.00 was approved faster too (probably there is not much that can be done on LM3 except checking if the submission includes all files), people would have noticed LM 3.01. Still a news article would be interesting, I think. Or maybe adding a table on main page with 'most recent submissions (whenever it's waiting or not)' (hi telinc, replace that most downloaded hacks page because all of them were just booted up and doesn't reflect the actual popular hacks D: ).
