Let’s be totally honest no mater what system is used it doesn’t get to the heart of what is posted all over the forums. How long before my item is reviewed.

When we had numbers people complained that the number wasn’t changing fast enough for them. Now that we have the bar those same people complain that without the numbers they can’t get an idea of where they are in the queue line, so they can go back and complain about why it’s taking so long.

Unfortunately there’s really no easy answer to this problem so I have to commend the Envato staff for trying to find a solution.

Honestly a reviewer can only review X amount of items in a given time, provided that the authors have prepared their files correctly. Larger items take longer. The queue is a variable time-to-market item that would be next to impossible to determine how long something takes.

Another issue with the queue is reviewer availability. If a reviewer has skills in a given area and they come on it makes more sense for them to tackle those files before others that they may not be as skilled in. So the queue is not a first-in-first-to-market mechanism.

So again the numbers are not 100% correct.

I’d be more inclined to vote for a stepped approach that shows me how long my items has been in the review process and shows me the current step in the process that the file is in.

for example:

- Submitted - Under Review - Held (for additional XYZ ) - Rejected - Accepted

I think that where I’m in line doesn’t really matter and a progress bar or a queue with numbers doesn’t really communicate the approval process well either way.

I’d love to have a number of days range from submit to market/rejection.

The problem isn’t the time, it is the difference between those who write on the forum that they had something approved in 24 hours and others who wait a week and then get sent to the back of the queue for another few days for very simple items.
