And on April 1st they’ll approve all the themes in the review queue!!! YAY
Waiting a week is nothing. If you will don’t see a small error, the template will be rejected, we will improve and once again we are waiting a week, for a total of two weeks!
In my opinion, should be a hierarchy:
- Elite Author
- Authors with themes
- New authors
or Reviewers for:
This gives us a minimum of 5 reviewers
Nothing wrong with hierarchy, but with current review queue, new authors would wait forever
There really should be an additional reviewer besides Ivor & Kailoon, even if just for tough days when queue goes beyond 3 days. 45 days ago, my item was accepted in 3 days. On Saturday. Just to put into perspective how many items were submitted / how quick things were getting reviewed.
Mid February our WordPress theme was approved within 24 hours (it was during the weekend and item was soft rejected 1 time).
I think the delay in review started since late February (I read same complaints on other thread) but it seems it has gotten a lot worst now. Envato especially Collis really need to do something about it and they need to do it fast!
8 Days and 150+ approved items but still..
I guess I’m just too unlucky
My last one went through after 5 days, unfortunately it went through on a bulk approvel day and I was halfway down the first page of my category from the start. For some it was even worse, barely any exposure on the main front page is one thing but when you are almost out the 1st of your category too . Seeing as hardly anything has gone through recently I worry another bulk day is coming.
Seems not much important for Envato staff to respond to our concerns. this is quite disappointing…
