Guys, I have been watching this post for a while, checking for updates from Envato as to when things will return to normal. But I think I have watched enough and its time for me add to the thread.

I have a couple things I wan’t to say and I am hoping that the staff reads it.

1. It is very sad that this has been happening for the last 4 months, impacting sales and the authors moral and instead of things getting better it seems to be getting worse

2. Though I donot work with Envato and cannot say what goes on behind the scenes, its seems like there is something extremely wrong if it has taken 4 months to get this back to normal or even close to normal. And i think this is what has people worried

3. Four months is a very long time and you have asked that we be patient and we have, but it is difficult to be patient when there are so many questions and things seem to have gotten worse instead of better

4. Noone wants to write bad comments on this thread, but I think that having this issue for so long and not getting a concrete reason as to why 4 months have passed and nothing positive has happened to the queue, has people wondering if you care about us as authors. Clearly this is a huge setback for authors…look at the length of this thread.

5. I fear that buyers will stop buying from GR as it takes a very long time for new items to become available.

Noone wants to add to this thread, as they think it is pointless. I am not sure of the cost and time to train new people, but something MORE has to be done.

@ DesignDistrict:
  1. moral impact, yes. Sales on existing items, im not sure
  2. “there is something extremely wrong if it has taken 4 months” +1
  3. +1 – its not about being inpatient anymore. Its about not being blind and insanely naive
  4. “look at the length of this thread” :|
  5. “buyers will stop buying from GR” = im not agree, they won’t. Not yet.

@ dekurvajo I agree that buyers are still coming to GR, the point though is that if this continues they may stop. It takes days to upload anything new and it takes far too long to have an item updated. Plus some authors that do quality work have decided not to upload a lot of items until things get better.

I hope things get better very soon, as I like GR very much

@DesignDistrict: I think that buyers will still come to GR because this is where the items are the most affordable (I mean the price is the lowest – and that’s enough to buyers). However I am more worried on the author side. Especially authors who decided to make GR their full time job. This really affects their living much.
