Hello everyone,

I would to know if somebody have the same problem, I have updated my item yesterday and usually when I do that after soft rejection, the progress bar is directly at 70-80% and reviewed in less 1 day. But this time just 45%, and after 12 hours 10% !!

Somebody can help me ? Have the same problem ?

Thank you !

It’s only been 12 hours, be patient. If you don’t see any movement for a few days though maybe contact support.

Remember they are very busy and a lot more submissions these days so the queues might take a bit longer then back in the day ;)

Thank you for your answer WPExplorer :)

I’m naturally impatient ^^ and as usual the review is done in less 1 day I’m surprised to have a progress bar at 10%

A little question, I would to know how is the review process in soft rejection, the reviewers have a special dashboard ? select the item that they want to review or it’s just a queue and they pick one by one ?

Ok ! I must be patient I guess ^^ but this is really frustrating to have a progress bar finally, almost useless

I had 4% and after some 5 minutes… it’s fall to 3% waiting to be approved :P Don’t worry it will jump at any moment.

:D I am at 17% !! It’s strange because before, with my others updates, the progress bar was good for me, it started at 70% and 80%, 90% etc… But I’m going to pray for a giant jump to 100% ^^

When I first submitted my last theme, it was soft rejected and after each time I sent in the changes, it would be 2-3 days until I would hear back from them. All together, it was over 2 weeks to get it approved, so yes, this is unfortunately the standard right now.

They’re apparently working to hire new reviewers, so hopefully we’ll see improvements in the next year or so as they groom the newbies.
