What does it really matter? I think there are a certain team of reviewers for each marketplace, not neccesarily each category within graphicriver. So, what would be wrong with a reviewer reviewing multiple categories within graphicriver if that is their job to be a “graphicriver reviewer”? I really don’t understand what you are trying to get out of this question. I’m sure all the reviewers are trained to review all categories and such.
There’s absolutely nothing wrong with a reviewer reviewing multiple categories within Graphic River. There are no complaints being made here. I think it would better help both Graphic River staff and its Contributors/Authors if we understood each other’s processes and preferences a little more.
You are probably right about the reviewers being trained to review all categories. There are a number of things we can learn from asking a question like this:
1. More information about the review process (possible reviewer preferences in file types/authors, factors contributing to the timing of the review process, and more.)
2. Author preferences (the positive and/or negatives of having many, or few reviewers focusing on their file submissions)
3. How we can assist reviewers (If we understand the load certain reviewers may be dealing with [if they are assigned to focus on specific categories or not] we as authors may want to aid by creating items that can be submitted to other categories. For example, if there are a large number of submissions being made to the “Print > Flyer” category and certain reviewers are being overwhelmed, it could be a good thing for authors to try designing vector-based flyers; which may even cause a new category to form in the vector section. We would never know this if we didn’t understand things on the Reviewer’s end.)
4. Just sharing our thoughts on this topic may enable us to come up with some good ideas that can be shared with Envato to improve their market places.
Sharing our experiences with one another can lead to brainstorming, which in turn, can lead to positive, constructive ideas being suggested to Envato and its staff.
Amrhamza said- “one category different reiewers”
Interesting. Very different in my case.
neopeaks said- “Good question .”
Yeah, I think it really is.
Here’s the update…
The file I submitted to the Print Templates > Food Menu category was also reviewed by the same reviewer who handled my submissions for the Graphics > Illustrations > Characters category and the Print Templates > Flyers > Events category.
So out of 16 files I’ve submitted, 12 of them were reviewed by the same reviewer (13 approved, 3 soft rejected). These files spanned over 4 different categories:
Vectors > Characters (3 submissions – different reviewers)
Print Templates > Flyers > Events (2 submissions – single reviewer+)
Graphics > Illustrations > Characters (7 submissions – single reviewer+)
Add-ons > Photoshop > Styles (1 submission – single reviewer)
Web Elements > Social Media > Facebook Timeline Covers (1 submission – single reviewer+)
Graphics > Miscellaneous (1 submission – single reviewer+)
Print Templates > Food Menu (1 submission – single reviewer+)
The ”+” shows the files handled by my main reviewer. Is it normal to have one reviewer focusing on the majority of your submissions?
3 Sale reversal In One dayy this is sooo baaad Guys :SSS
Hmm. When you are notified about a sale reversal, is any information about which file(s) sold received the reversal? If you are supplied with information about the specific file(s) you received the sale reversal on, I believe it would be in your best interest to check your file and see if there are any updates that can be made to either the file(s) itself/themselves, or the description of the file(s). Something may not be working out the way your purchasers intended.
Like you said, they have different reviewers on the different categories.
I would assume so; yet my experience seems to suggest otherwise. I’ve been taking notice of the submissions I have made, purposely trying to see if there is a difference in reviewers when I submit products to different categories. Early on in my experience there seemed to be different reviewers; but as I submitted more files it seemed the range of reviewers taking on my submissions narrowed.
I know for some that might be a good thing; especially when considering the review processes related to soft-rejections (many authors here seem to approve the the same reviewer focusing on their submissions).
One of my latest submissions was made to the Print Templates > Food Menu category. It will be intriguing to see if I receive the same reviewer that handled my submissions for the Graphics > Illustrations > Characters category and the Print Templates > Flyers > Events category.
Do most of you authors here get different reviewers for the different products you submit to Graphic River? Do you find that you have the same reviewer reviewing the majority of your submissions? Or has your experience with the number of reviewers that review your submissions been balanced?
I’m very curious of this.
In my experience here; it seems the majority of my submissions are being reviewed by a specific reviewer. I wonder if there is some kind of process of assigning authors to specific reviewers that takes place. Perhaps certain reviewers review items submitted to a certain range of categories? Not sure how it works but I’d love to know your experiences.
Thanks for sharing this information. It is important that we remain as open and transparent as we can; in a respectful, tolerant, and appreciative manner; in order for problems to be clearly observed and understood. Such is necessary for sound and true solutions to be created; which will ultimately aid everyone in making constructive progress towards their goals. The censorship process only delays the time it takes to reach truth and an ultimate solution. It clouds and obscures the truth; but regardless, the truth will still exist. Censorship can influence people to remain quiet or become louder. I’m happy there are those like you that project your voice further when others do not wish you to be heard. Stay focused on the truth and sharing truth. Ultimately it will reach those searching for it and any bystanders it travels by.

For me, the overall look, looks a bit dated. I really like the icons. I think the reviewers explained a lot for the reasons, atleast more than they would for most
I suppose try to look at modern trading card games and compare with yours and see why they work and how you could improve your design.Best of luck
Thanks for the great feedback! I’ll try to check and see what’s going on out there regarding “modern trading card games” to compare. If these look outdated then I do want to give them a good polishing!

Anyone able to provide a little guidance or feedback on this project for me?

I’ve got two soft rejections for the following Trading Card Game Templates. Any input you can give me concerning what changes might work best to make this Graphic River worthy would help me out a lot. Here are the rejection reasons:
Reason 1: The fiels here and elements are looking really awesome as a whole concept though unfortunately the graphics feel like they need to be worked on some more and cleaned up. The graphics need a bit more details and color improvements. Also the typography used is really important and it needs to be cleaned up. Provide the Icons as editable files. There are a few graphics and characters used that are a bit too subjective. You need to consider toning them up.
Reason 2: As previously requested in the review the files here still require some more improvements. There are a few graphics and characters used that are a bit too subjective. You need to consider toning them up. The color combinations and contrast between text elements and the graphics is not quite working out as it feels that it needs more work. Consider maybe using services such as Adobe Kuler to help with the colors. Improve the text styles and clean up the graphics more.
