So let me ask you what is your proposal, how to solve things properly for all to be happy?
I’ve already said it a couple of times, a “release queue” where approved themes would go, that would release 1-2-3 items hourly(or any number based on statistics from the previous month so we would all have the same exposure time, without waiting days and days for approval and losing exposure within a few hours

That idea sounds good but:

What about soft rejected items and others, how to handle that part? Few “release queues” maybe like: approved – soft rejected – hard rejected? What if ‘last month statistic” has 50% less items in queue than this month and approval hours stay 1-2-3 items hourly, imagine that queue/review time/exposure time?

Still not perfect solution I think.

Personally do not have anything against new authors to complain, I was the same before and fast with complains, they did not learn the school yet, but I see Elite authors here complains about reviewing time and review process which is little beneath of what we all expect from Elite guys here.

...

At what point would elite authors be permitted to talk about how slow the review process has gotten? When it takes 1 month to hear back? 5 months?

No of course, elite authors can talk anytime and they should always stand out first, which we all appreciate, at least me. I do not have anything against it. But elite authors are more qualified to have more understanding than beginners for changes, especially for the review process, but it is opposite recently and that is what I wanna point out at first place.

When items approved in 2-3 days, many of elite authors stand out: ”...it is short time, we are on 2nd page already…”, when items approved in 9-10 days many elite authors stand out: ”...it is long time and that killing us…”, so actually what we all want from review process?

Give some constructive proposal which solve problems, you are elite, you have experience etc. When I say ‘you’ I mean all elite authors.

I think you should use your time while you are waiting to do something more valuable. Maybe go through and update old items to improve them? Maybe work on your next project? Work on marketing? Just because your item is waiting in the queue it doesn’t mean you have to sit there and do nothing ;)

+1

Well said, but they do not sit there and do nothing, each month someone complain on reviewers or review process, so they do something. :P

To be little more serious will start from myself, I was hard rejected 5-6 times last 6 months, several times soft rejected, I waited from 2-15 days for decision about item and or update and when I look back at my work, reviewers evaluations was always on spot (I talk about Kai and Ivor), did not meet new reviewers yet. About time of review process it is better to have 2 high class reviewers than 20 mediocre which will increase speed instead of quality, and I think that is the main reason why Envato is slow with hiring many reviewers, and that is smart from my point of view.

^ It is allowed and it is ok from any point of view if you buy your own item and give away.

You want to surprise 100 customers, you purchase 100 times your item and give away. Why not?

Cool topic, not sure, maybe around $6-8000 excluding design, because design was key factor to attract attention at start so that is something we can’t estimate precise, rest is history…

To run for that kind of project with design and functionality by making theme by theme until achieve it, depends, to be honest we all doing that here, someone with more success someone with less so c’est la vie.

About, $25K-$75K, nah that budget is better for NASA rocket science projects. :)

And of course big congrats @ThemeFusion!
