I wonder how many thousand posts it takes for people to realise: this is how it is.

These threads have gone from genuine concern to whining about every single item that gets uploaded to GR.

Do you really think Envato does not know the state of this?

Do you really think that enquiring how long every single item you upload will take until it’s reviewed will change anything?

Do you really thing that Envato needs management tips from any of us?

Voice your concern, post your complaint – but please, let’s not whine about every flippin’ business card that gets uploaded to GR. I think everyone got the point by now…

Good thing I’m not a public relations officer :) Ha! :D

This has nothing to do with lamenting. It is all about calculation concern. When an item is stuck at 95% for days, it calls for a little concern. Most recent items were reviewed within 3-4 days. Waiting for long again for 7 days and above concerns me. Review consistency is very important. Sorry if I sounded quite bold. Thank you and sorry once again!

Lol, no worries, no offence taken :)

If you’re worried that an item of yours was overlooked, then write to support. Honestly, I don’t even think Emvato is reading all of these.

Okay, maybe I’m having a bad day, I’m subscribed to this thread and I just thought it started to get silly that every 5 min I get a new mail in my inbox about somebody wondering when his item will get reviewed … it’ll get reviewed when it’ll get reviewed.

I think it has become dramatically clear that this is not really going to change. And if you read what Envato has done in six months to remedy the situation: shift one position to create a new reviews manager and hire one new reviewer – then it should also be painfully clear that review times are not going to come down.

Allright, vent away, I won’t complain anymore :)

no harm and being a little concerned especially when the money earned here brings food on our table… :)

Absolutely no harm!

But I think we’ve all had our chance to express our concern. Now it’s just getting silly, we are reducing ourselves to a bunch of whining three-year-olds.

Imagine that Envato staff would actually take the time to look at all of these requests – then nothing would get reviewed for another three months!

In any case, everyone is free to speak. I just thought it’s starting to get silly :D

Wow, this thread should really be closed.

Is every single author going to ask about how long every single file they upload is going to take to be reviewed?

I think we’ve all made our point: it’s taking too long. We have all made it several times and We have all discussed several times why it’s taking too long.

Graphic River staff have replied, they have explained what they’ve done about it.

Now: it is what it is.

I’m perfectly happy to find news about things that are being done, or about things that are not happening. But every day every single author on GR reporting on every single item they upload and how long it would take, how long it has taken … Please, I don’t think we’re doing ourselves any favours Looking like three-year-olds.

Are we there yet? Are we there yet? Are we there yet? Come on guys!

Upload your item, wait till it gets reviewed.

... and I thought I may be missing out on millions because I have not had the time to post any services yet :)

I’m sure it’ll pick up! But I also know I won’t be selling any logo designs for $20, so if it doesn’t I could probably live with it, too!

I do like the underlying idea of selling micro-services. On the other hand I can’t say I’m over impressed by yet another site that will make us compete on price.

I also have to admit that I was surprised that many people do post fairly priced services (in the Low-wage spectrum of course). It’s not all “work 3 days for 5 dollars” – so that’s definitely a good trend!

Cheers

The official timeline on the FAQ said within a week. However it rarely took more than two or three days … I used to try and upload on Friday still have it online for Monday morning, and even pulled off a couple of times :) There were actually debates when was the best day to upload because he could calculate that it would take about two working days for your file to be online.

I’m actually a lot more relaxed now. Before I got really nervous upon submitting an item and kept checking. Now by the time it gets reviewed I’ve completely forgotten about it … lol :D

Cheers

Keep in mind also that you need a certain volume (yes, size matters :)) in your portfolio before you will note regular sales.

It wasn’t before I had 15 to 20 solid items that my sales really consolidated to something regular. And I still have fluctuations now.

Cheers
