Can we maybe have a different policy on how to deal with issues? Would be nice if instead of locking threads and shutting up authors (which is quite rude), to have discussions where authors could express their opinions and solutions. You never know from where a good idea might come.
Also, I’m glad to see that this particular issue is solved in a positive way.
Heya Mihai. None of us like locking threads, and it would be great if we never had to. But the original reason the thread was locked, calling out items on the forums, was still against our community guidelines.
If we can agree to follow these community guidelines, then there would certainly be a lot less locked threads. I love the free flow of ideas, opinions and solutions and don’t want to get in the way of that. If we can stick to our guidelines then I think that would certainly make all of our lives easier.
Sorry to take this thread a bit off-topic. Please resume
You can always ask We may not be getting involved too deeply with review removals until we have some more guidelines in place. We’d like to strike a nice balance between legitimate buyer feedback, even if it’s negative, and malicious feedback or author strong-arming through bad reviews.
Heya. I’m not here to argue when things aren’t perfect. Our whole design and development process is built around launching and fine tuning by being agile. As Scott mentioned in his reply, he’s going to pass the thread on to the Review team, and I’ll be the first to stand up and say that files that are approved that don’t follow our file guidelines are obviously done in mistake.
The purpose of these forums is not for calling out hypocrisy or even anything close to that. We want to deliver a helpful and effective environment where authors can help authors and buyers.
Hey guys. As Scott mentioned, this a going to be an ongoing project for the Review team and there are going to be some growing pains. Your best solution is to follow the instructions as provided in our Knowledgeable. Granted there are going to be some edge cases and files that you can point at that are not yet following these rules, but I think you would agree that it’s going to be much better to not have your file rejected or soft-disabled in the future, than to try a sneak a file through that doesn’t follow these rules.
I’m going to lock this thread down now as it’s starting to stray into calling out items, which is against our community guidelines. Thanks!
