The first post with less promises and more substance on the topic in 5 months – Many thanks for that!
I still think that 18 days is a hell of a wait but it’s good to see that there is in fact something being done and things can only get better as the new team (members) grow together.
Thanks for the update!
Are there any thoughts on re-organising what has been referred to by so many the last few months? Seperate queues/market for vector and logos which are flooding this marketplace? Or is this completely off the table?
Indeed! What ever was done helped a lot! My item was in the queue for 22 days, print category, supposedly the slowest one. But over the last three days it did over 30%, so a noticeable acceleration.
Also my item was reviewed by a reviewer who never had the pleasure of reviewing one of my items – or is that the other way round? lol
So apart from the new “review management” team members I assume that there are now also more actual “reviewers”.
This took almost 5 months – unbelievable. But thank God we now have noticeable results!
My weekends are usually bad – this one is no exception
GR take almost 5 months to sort out a queueing problem and it takes them 2 months to prpare a blog post.
Either it will be the mother of all solutions with the mother of all blog posts … or most likely they’re just giving us the finger
My vote is the finger
I really don’t understand why people in this thread continue to make excuses for bad manners.
There are none. It’s not about being soft or “a pussy” Not being able to “take it”.
In fact I think it’s far more “manly” to stand up and show others the limitations of how they are allowed to treat you.
I’m honestly quite disappointed that some people here think it’s normal or it’s something we should just live with.
Bad manners and lack of education, lack of respect is not something anyone should put up with. No matter how “tough” you are. I think that’s completely besides the point.
Furthermore if you think it’s something that should just be “sucked up” then you encourage this sort of behaviour. I think osky is far more courageous pointing it out than others are “sucking it up”.
All the talk about “it’s a tough world out there” is because you let it be. So if anything the ones who “can’t handle it” are the ones simply “taking it”, not the ones standing up for good manners.
I think this discussion has been blown out of proportion a little.
Of course nobody’s job should be on the line for using the word “ridiculous”. I also don’t think that this is what osky meant to achieve.
Let’s just say that “the review did not meet GR authors minimum quality requirements” – soft rejected – please correct word “ridiculous”.
Forget and forgive
OSKY pOnte las Pilas y ignora las cosas malas que te digan la Gente!
si si ,, estoy de acuerdo,, quizas es demasiado,, pero uno esta esperando durante varios dias la correccion y para colmo lo maltratan,, yo entiendo tu punto,, estoy de acuerdo,, imaginate para los nuevos diseñadores como seria un review con estas palabras,,, seria demoledorpero debes de enternder que no todos esta mos en las mismas, y que aveses nesesitan ser fuertes con uno para que te despiertes and le pongas mas ganas y agas mejors diseños. u salo para mejor enves que mal. saludos
No son argumentos amigo. No es su posicion de decidir ser fuerte o no contigo. Es una relacion de un profesional con otro. El no tiene derecho de decidir si ser fuerte o no. Solo tiene derecho de comportarse como un senor.
No es ni tu pdre, ni tu profesor ni tu hermano – es una persona profesional que solo tiene un trabajo: evaluar un trabajo segun las normas de Envato. El resto se lo lleva al bar despues del trabajo o a su casa – pero no se lo dice a otra persona profesional que ni conoce.
No hay escusas para la mala educacion nunca. Se puede ser fuerte y disciplinar sin nunca saltarse las normas de la educacion.
No hay escusa, punca, punto. O como educas a tus ninos? A veces puedes pegar? No! No se pega nunca!
De la mimsa forma que te hablo de manera cordia aunque no compartamos la misma opinion.
this shouldn´t be a reason to offend a reviewer´s freedom speech I mean, we only have a handful of reviewers at the moment and if an author can´t just take critisism.. its not fair to post a rejection comment in the forums. By the way, I totally agree with IK´s post!!! Again: the thread owner should have opened a support ticket!
I agree that this has probably gone too far … Just having a little fun
Ok, I’ll shut up now
For what it’s worth: I don’t think it’s such a big deal, and I don’t think that osky meant it as such.
However I also don’t think that any excuses should be made for lack of manners. No matter what.
osky saidTo be honest the use of “models With Their tongues sticking out” in the flyers got beyond ridiculous so maybe “professional designers” on GR needs a wake up call. It maybe harsh but sometimes you need harsh to make a point.
Reason: This design is not working. You have too many things going on and the models With Their tongues sticking out look ridiculous.
No offense fellow authors.
Maybe we can settle on “inappropriate”?
Hey, this is turning into a fun discussion
if you work in the design industry you have to have tough skin and be able to take other peoples criticism . not cry about it . take what they told you and use it for good. and work harder. thats what makes you better in this industry.
I have two sons. I also teach them that it’s a tough world out there and you need to fight your way to the top. If you want to achieve something, no pain no gain.
Nevertheless, I also teach them manners and I also teach them to stand up for themselves.
There is no excuse for ill manners. Tough world or not tough world. I’m not talking about this example in particular, it’s not such a big deal. I’m talking about ill mannered people stomping around in general.
There is no need to “suck it up”. It’s not “crying and whingeing”. It standing up for yourself and the values you stand for. And it’s showing ill mannered people the boundaries of how far they could go.
With your stance You actually make them think that their way is the right way. It’s not. You can be tough, you can be a winner, and you can be a successful boss without needing to resort to lack of education. Anyone can stomp around and call other people names however it takes human being of real class and quality to be able to assert their opinion with just as much emphasis in an educated way.
