7 days after…...

The longest time till now for an approval.

I am not complaining… I am sure that the reviewers have a good reason and for sure a lot of files to review.

And here is my point. What is really going on in the marketplace ?

It looks like everybody give a shot creating an After effects file. It looks like some tutorials from the internet gives the hope to some people to believe that they can make great templates, and some easy cash. I am sure that a lot of talented people here are self tough but I am also sure that it takes time to arrive at the point to call yourself Motion graphic designer and to start to create stuff for money.

I am wondering if can be a limit, or even better a starting point for all the people that they want to try to sale templates.

Even if takes just some seconds to reject a file…... 1000 files need days to be rejected… so can be a problem for all the people that support with there work this marketplace.

Sorry for my poor English…. I hope you understand the meaning.

Thoughts?

Here’s a thought: There is only one active reviewer currently working for the past 2 – 3 weeks. We’re not allowed to call out names, and its irrelevant to the topic. If you take a close look you’ll see that most files are approved at the same time for the past week or two.

When there were two reviewers or three active, it used to be easy to tell who’s reviewing what just because of the time difference of approvals, it was usually a batch of approvals during Daytime in Europe and another batch during Daytime in the US.

Last time I uploaded an item (not long ago), it was after no new projects were approved for a few days.
Then, my item was approved among 20-30 others, kicking my item off the main page (and the latest files list) after 2 hours…
A few days later – the same thing – no new projects approved leaving the same items in the main page for 2-3 days..what’s going on ?!
Why isn’t the exposure equal at all times? Timing means a lot here and it seems like no one is following this …
Something is a little off as realthing said…...in the same way the featured author stayed the same for 2 weeks…somebody fell asleep?

Contact support when you spot such files. Usually they do a good job. You’ll help yourself and others at the same time.

Have an item submitted 3 days ago on 39% so that’s 13% a day. Will take 7 days at this pace.

Wonder where the other reviewers are.

Yes I notice this… but this is something that can happened. Listen, I don’t want to blame the reviewers. I just feel that we are to many authors… or wanna be authors ,so I think that its time for the marketplace to add some rules about what we can upload here.

Maybe a more difficult author test…

BTW… does someone knows how many are the rejected files against the approved ?

I think raising the qualification standards for items would work better. Everyone could pass the test, even after hundreds of efforts, but that doesn’t mean he/she will create a nice template after that. It would bring the number of low/medium quality templates down.

I uploaded my last project on Monday, exactly 7 days ago… And after 2 days progress bar was 70% full (because around 50-60 AE project was reviewed during that time)... and now after five more days it’s around 85-90% percent. Only 3 reviewed AE projects yesterday.

raising quality requirements doesn’t reduce the number of submissions which have no chance for approval, which was what realthing was going for.

reviewers spend too much time on rejecting items that are so far off that they don’t have a chance to be here. every day new authors come here and submit ugly projects in hope for the big money, resulting in the serious designers having to wait over a week for getting approved.
