@QBKL Spot on.
Hahahaa +1000 @ChapterThemes, hit the nail right on its head there :)).
Bottom line, from my point of view what @Enabled is saying is dead on correct, and @Umbrella you guys should try and relax a bit more, 1-2-3 weeks added to the theme launch won’t make you bankrupt. You should do your best and create a list of checkpoints to go through before launching anything. Stuff like Monster Widget, TUT, Theme Check, etc. This way 99.9% of theme issues will be already fixed and the reviewers can focus on small things like “add this text to the description”.
I do think that the biggest problem is that devs are like horny dogs when they “finish” a theme, especially with WP. It takes 2 months to have it done and when you’re finally ALMOST ready you can’t wait anymore and miss a lot of things, so perhaps that’s the main problem.
Re’ the review system, I think the current speed is perfect. a 2 day waiting period means a 12 hour front page exposure and I don’t think anybody wants that.
I think that the reviewers are at their worst when reviewing PSD files and offering basically 0 feedback for a theme that looks great but it’s not quite there, throwing the designer’s 3 weeks of work out the window in 3 minutes.
And I also think that for PSD’s there are way too many stereotypes on the marketplace and not many innovations are allowed. If you don’t have a Skills and a Clients section you don’t have a good PSD in most cases.
Any official replies yet?
Very/extremely/outrageously bad idea.
Exactly, there’s absolutely NO way this could be allowed. Users would end up updating their themes on a daily basis for sure. This really can’t be allowed.
Yeah could anybody tell us what’s up with that?
The CVS doesn’t have a clear breakdown and you can’t sort the items by name or anything else. It’s just a list ordered by date. It would take forever to calculate.
Guys, today of all days the Statementer is not working. How is one supposed to calculate the shares of all the partners he’s working with, when there’s no way to group the sales by items or by anything else for that matter.
I don’t understand why such a huge company like Envato, with such an enormous yearly profit, would leave something this important on the hands of the community instead of creating something sturdy and reliable themselves. I doubt it would take an envato dev more than 2 weeks to do this, and it would certainly bring huge satisfactions to everybody.
