So what is the value to the user (you guys, the authors)? It’s in knowing how close your item(s) are to being reviewed.

Transparency – knowing how many before someone’s item will make sure there is a fair process going on even to the new authors. I don’t mean there will be issues related to trust but part of Envato’s success was because of transparency. Please give value and priority for that.

In a perfect world – YES. But it’s not possible, I think everyone understand it. We can’t know the exact time.

Personally I want to know where is my file. Not how long it takes, but where it is in this queue.
This can be done in different ways… You can write even static text: “There are more than 10 items before yours”, “There are more than 30 items before yours” (this message is upgraded every 10 items). And that is all! I know where is my file and I’m happy!

Now you make us blind.

EDIT: Or just give us a simple static information: when we click upload button, the system checks how many items before us. Then it gives us this information (may be email message). And that is all! No other info. Just how many file was before us when our uploading process start.

EDIT 2: I can create much more solutions if you don’t like these two.

I’d love to have the status bar back and working properly again, I loved that status bar:) It was fun checking everyday how long is left for your items to be approved and it was that feeling of excitement when the bar was coming close to finish lolz

It’s a very sad day for all of us who shared doru’s feeling – as mentioned in one of the most popular forum thread ever on the marketplaces..

Authors are losing an essential emotion about item upload. Even if it didn’t reflect the real progress, you cannot deny the excitement and the anticipation build this progress bar would provide.

It seems the reason behind the new (failed) user badges is to create excitement. If you ask me, i am taking my old badges and progress bar back with no second thoughts!

That seems an easy way to decrease the number of issues concerning the progress bar. What we really need is a reliable tool which give us an idea of the state of our upload. It is so difficult to indicate how many items are there before our? I’m totally dislike this.

I really think its great you guys are always trying to make things better but no progress bar is not making my job better or easier. I really miss knowing more or less my location in the queue .

Just knowing how many projects ahead of mine would be great . I don’t need an estimate until its approved.

thanx you guys

I can see two possible outcomes of this situation. A massive response from the community clearly indicates that the progress bar was, in fact, useful, and a vast part of authors never thought of it as ‘broken’ – perhaps only inaccurate.

If the person who took the decision to alter the way in which progress bar works is high in the chain of command, we can expect they will defend their decision no matter what, simply to prove that they ‘can’ and they are consistent. I once worked in a company where the managing director acted in a similar way. It led nowhere and was destructive for the whole organization.

On the other hand, anyone who follows this thread can obviously see that we would love to see the number of items in the queue, because we need it. It may be a rough estimation, it may only show the amount of days remaining for our item to be reviewed, something, anything. I can’t possibly imagine that it isn’t feasible. I even volunteer to write the necessary code myself, if it helps (i know it won’t). My feeling is that this particular point of view reflects the general attitude of many authors here. Envato, don’t throw out the baby with the bath water.

What it seems many people are missing here is that we’re not saying we won’t make this change in the future. This is an iterative approach and this has been one iteration change towards an overall goal. We’ve taken all feedback on board.
