I agree that quality standards should be increased – this will slow down the rate of new files approved and thus increase exposure to new files – the problem with this “filtering” though is it’s done by humans (reviewers) which means it’s not always going to be reliable. (hence this thread)

By simply adding better filtering by sorting by sales and time period, we have a filtering mechanism controlled by an automated system – which is far more reliable. The system will automatically filter out files that don’t sell, and show buyers files that do sell based on the time period selected. Problem solved.

Why this topic keeps coming up, is because exposure of new items is dependent on the competency of humans… an automated system with complex filtering options would be a fail safe system, and will always auto correct itself regardless of what reviewers approve, and then we won’t have any threads like this anymore – that’s for sure.

Most of your items are sold between 200-300 sales, which means you quality is maybe low also, maybe you are item-spammer also :)

Excellent analysis. TF need to come up with some sort of mechanism based on the ‘decay’ factor of the themes. They should devise a complex formula comprising of ( number of sales / how many days old / author’s reputation / theme’s ratings / author’s ratings) to list the items on the homepage. This is what Facebook does. A recently published new post with 0 likes is pushed below a post with 10 likes posted few hours ago.

Envato published/accepts every design that has the potential to make a few pennies. It still counts as income.

I’m the most concerned about this situation – that each time when a reviewer should reject a theme, not due to its design or coding quality, but for its uniqueness and added value to the marketplace, he will always choose the ‘safe’ way that keep Envato afloat, where every item sale counts.

I think it’s a riskier strategy in the long-term.

I have to agree that the quality of some items on TF lately has been well below average.

I usually love checking out the latest and greatest the TF community has to offer; it’s often a source of inspiration for my own designs. Lately however, quality seems to have taken a bit of a dive and there has been a fair amount of wading through uninspired, bland designs to get to anything decent.

As others have mentioned, I don’t believe my portfolio is better than everyone elses, I’m still very much a beginner but I feel that some recent items are missing the mark on current standards.
