Hi folks,

I submitted an item update for my latest theme over 3 weeks ago (just bug fixes, and some new additions).

Nothing. Silence. Over 3 weeks for a theme update approval? Wow!

Can you chime in?

thanks
Item Automatically Updated — Are you sure you uploaded the right files? You need to submit your update again.

Cheers Ivor. Will have another go :)

Gotta be a +1.

If it doesn’t get resolved at some point, more ‘great’ (yeah, not you Mr Dribbble cut & paster) authors will jump ship. And that would be a damn shame.

Envato Studio has been locked down to prevent market saturation – should the same be done for Themeforest?
An “invite only” policy could work I guess, where new authors have to show that they already have a really good portfolio to get approved. That seems to have been a very successful model for a certain competitor site with initials CM. On the other sites like Graphic River you could use the model that a site with a name similar to Shuttlecock uses, which is to require an upload of 10 unique items to get approved so you can become an author. I guess that means only the more serious authors make it.

A 1,000,000% that should be the policy on TF. Way too much saturation. Bags of rubbish, by rubbishy, amateur, authors who don’t have the first clue about UI/UX. Just ‘cut & paste’ kiddies, from the “I’ll just steal the best elements I’ve seen on Dribbble generation”. Stop the rot!!! :)

For petes sake. There’s one Elite Author on here, who has pretty much copied verbatim the exposure.co (in one of their many homepage offerings). Have you no morals? Yes. Be influenced by what’s out there, we all do that, of course. But put your own stamp on it, refine it, improve on it.

We can all sit there and rip a site design, verbatim. Piece of cake. But do you not feel a fraud? If the internet was closed for the day, and you had to design a new theme, you’d probably be screwed? Unable to start, and progress from your blank canvas. Themeforest is currently littered with these authors, and growing at an increasing rate!!

What really confuses me? And maybe I’m missing something here.

One day – Spike in traffic, fair amount of sales Day after (and no not a Saturday, Sunday or Tuesday) Same amount of traffic, no sales??

Somethings royally screwed here?

And getting ever more tedious as the days go on.

PS: You. Author. With your fancy pants 20 different homepage styles, you can’t design. You think you can, but you really don’t know the true essence of effective UI/UX. You’re just a ‘copy and paste trends’ kinda guy. Stop. Leave TF to the professionals please. Rant over (You wouldn’t like to read the full un-edited version. Which I’ll be posting here very shortly.) ;)

Was there such a dip last year, could be the summer vibe?

There always is a little in Summertime, but nothing like this. As MVP mentioned around April/May sales just fell off a cliff.

It’s pretty dire at the moment, and worrying more, and more by the day

No disrespect/anger whatsoever, but I see some kind of irregularities in the reviewing process..

On June 27 – 16 items were reviewed Between June 28th and July 1st, 20 items were reviewed.

Looks like it dropped significantly or am I totally missing something here? What’s Envato’s “optimal” release rate for WP themes for instance? 5-10 items per day or way less?
Review team had been busy with recent security updates related to prettyPhoto XSS issue.
^ This is the main reason. Please be patient while we get things back to normal.

Thanks for chiming in Ivor. Much appreciated.
