It is truly amazing to see, whenever these kind of threads show up, it is always the person who starts the thread to blame. Not someone else :)

Is there anyone to consider that maybe it is time for Envato to expand the reviewer team? Don’t get me wrong, I do and I always will know that those guys are dealing with huge amount of work and they do everything they can to review dozens of submissions in a limited time. But, considering the excessive increase of the new members/authors, I think it is time to take some other action than to expect the current reviewer team to do the all the work.

Well, saying “follow the guidelines” is easy for an old member of this community. Confirming this suggestion is even easier for the rest of us. But, I must remind you all, that there are lots of new members as well, and there will be many many more, every single day. We all know that Envato (especially Audiojungle) is growing immensely. So, there will always be some guy who is doing mistakes, as we all did while we were a newbie, until we get used to the whole system. We can not simply expect someone to join Audiojungle and make no mistakes, plus, to compose super acceptable material, or their very best! It is not impossible, but highly unlikely. So just imagine this time next year. How huge is the workload going to be for reviewers? I can not even imagine.

Long story short, I must say I find the title partly true. Someone really needs to wake up. But I don’t believe that someone is our lovely reviewer team.

P.S: There will be dozens more threads like this one, as long as new members keep coming, and try to explore their ways around the community. Get over it.

Envato need already introduce a ban on this topic. :bigsmile: The guys are not robots. The period for consideration – one week. You all agreed to this condition. So what’s the problem?

I actually like that it seems to be taking longer…...if I do find something that could use improvement in one of my songs, I have the chance to take it down and fix it before it gets reviewed! In all seriousness, the reviewers here at audiojungle do an amazing job. I can only imagine the mountain of tracks they have to review on a daily basis. These guys and gals literally move mountains! Keep up the great work.

Agreed. As a whole they actually do a really good job. Gotta give em credit. I was doing it for another site for a while and it wasn’t easy!

I have started uploading most of my tracks a month ago and I was kinda nervous to wait 5-7 days for approval. After a month of constant uploading I just got used to it and it doesnt bother me at all.

But… I have another problem right now… It is my addiction of constant sale checkings :)

Of course everyone makes mistakes, I think I did the last time I uploaded, but it is quite common to find submissions with numerous mistakes: like just about every mistake you can make: no watermark, no zip, no tags, no description, wrong format, etc, and it’s not uncommon to find that a author has uploaded 20 or more tracks with the same mistakes like this. Or, there are tracks where obviously the author has not listened to it thoroughly before submitting it because there is a glaring mistake, or 30 seconds of silence at the end of the track. Again, yes, these are mistakes, but if everyone were to stop and think “Do I really understand the upload instructions?” maybe this could help?

So, a question to all, do you really understand the upload instructions? :)

I recently had a file rejected because of 20 or 30 seconds at the end. Between my 2 accounts I have uploaded over 100 files. Even with my uploading experience I made this silly mistake. I felt pretty dumb. I also wanted to send an apology to my reviewer.

:D The same mistake also occurred to me recently! So I would take this opportunity to apologize to my reviever too. :)

lol. Perhaps a javascript confirmation pop up with a final checklist attatched to the upload button is in order if things like this are routine. Some of that stuff is kind of ridiculous and would frustrate the heck out of me.

This +1… It says quite clearly in Envato/AJ’s Terms and Conditions that files will be approved witihn 1 week. No-one has any right to complain until it goes over that weekly threshold.

Now, how do you upload stuff again?
