I just want to take a second to say this to the TF staff and especially the reviewers

Congratulations!

The rate at which the items are being reviewed is perfect, and please keep it under 20pieces IN TOTAL/day, like you’ve done over the last week or so.

For newbie authors!

Do yourselves a favor and stop bitching about how your items are not reviewed fast enough! The faster you’re going live, the faster you’re going out of the homepage and then first pages of the certain category. TRUST ME, you don’t want to get reviewed in 24hrs. A month ago when 40 items/day were being accepted there were absolutely no profits to make! You didn’t even have enough time to notice you’re on the homepage.

Cheers!

As for the timing, I believe that if Envato introduce some kind of item scheduling scheme, that would be the best and most fair way for authors to get (almost) equal Home Page exposure.

Once a new file is approved, it (automatically) gets a “ticket” for date and time when it will be published. Predefined daily slots can be set, and they may vary depending of the size of “items buffer”.

Just a random idea that I believe can make our lives easier :D

I second it, it’s quite a great idea.

The current rate is only because kailoon is on vacation I think. And the files are waiting more than 24hrs than before, it’s definitely not okay, if it’ll continue this way, in 2-3 weeks the items will be approved after one week. The queue is going to be bigger and bigger.

Is accepting 40/day better?

Yes, rather than waiting 2 weeks for the file to be reviewed. Or more.

If the themes would get reviewer every hour(like having 3 reviewers working 8 hours a day, x 3 = 24) so themes will get reviewed at any hour of the day, we’d have the same exposure and things would be just fine.

Can you please inform us when you waited 2 weeks to get a file reviewed? :)

Yes, we are a team of two + our Review Manager but Envato is hiring more reviewers. Kai Loon got married a few days ago and he needed time off to travel with his wife.

I’ve been reviewing at the same pace every day, please bear with us. For those interested apply here: jobs@envato.com

@am_themes Thanks for your kind words, buddy.

@am_themes Thanks for your kind words, buddy.

No, no, I never said I waited 2 weeks. :) I said that, if you would approve only 20 themes a day and each day there would be 30 submitted themes, we would end up having more and more themes in the queue and that would improve the review time!

You guys are doing great job, and, considering you’re now alone for these few days, it’s impressive that you keep the marketplace under control all by yourself :) Hats off!

I said that more reviewers would improve the approval process and fix some of the exposure issues some of us complained about.

Have a nice weekend!

@Ivor,

We really appreciate your effort, especially now when you are doing this all alone.

I hope you will find some fresh blood to help you out in future and make the process even smoother.

@Ivor

Having a responsibility to review each and every stuffs submitted in TF and GR (a kind of Ninja activity) your work means truly challenging. Had a great time when you & Kai Loon were here. But now you are doing this alone with all your efforts and dedication, which makes it perfect help for all authors.

Hats off to you Ivor. Yes, this thread is really meaningful.
