The job of the reviewers is crucial. Personally I had very good “rejections ” from PatrikL. He rejected my works a few times but every time his explanations were very well detailed and helped me to improve the item a lot and mostly he is consistent in his suggestions and this was very important in helping me to tune my works on the quality standards required.
Unfortunately, at least in my short experience as an author, the lack of consistency between reviewers is the other side of the coin of the reviewing process. For example a few days ago a flyer of mine got soft rejected because I named “logo” one of the layers inside the .psd file ( not in the preview images or in the thumbnail ). I was surprised to receive a rejection for such a small detail but in the same time a appreciated a lot the work of the reviewer who took care of analyzing my item so deeply. The problem is that I see several items approved in which the word “Logo” is very well visible in the preview images.
This is not a complaint, I’m sure that all the reviewers are doing their best in such a challenging task, is just a simple example that shows how the lack of consistency could be misleading for an author.
