I have an item that has been temporarily held by the review team for 8 days now (I’m sure there’s a good reason).

Not doggin’ on Envato reviewers (they’re busy lil guys). Just wondering if anyone has had similar experiences and what the reason was for this happening to you.

Don’t worry: support has already been contacted… just waiting on a response.

Thanks for your input! :)

Phil

Maybe the item is so incredible and ahead of its time, the review team are waiting before they unleash it on an unsuspecting world. Just giving the world a chance to catch up… :)

Must be lots of items being uploaded for the 70% week.

Probably the reviewers are overloaded a bit.

I’m sure they’ll come around to it.

1.Wants a second opinion on pricing or the appropriate category to put the item in,
2.Needs help making the item work correctly in the marketplace system,
3.Wants the site manager to review the item because it’s unusual in some way, or
4.Wants a reviewer with special skills to review the item if it requires specific knowledge for proper review.

5. The reviewers are busy with the new uploaded items and have no time to check the item. ;)

Hire more reviewers envato! don’t seem to mind raising prices instead of lowering your commision. Worst marketing and management I’ve ever seen for such a size company.

If you haven’t yet Phil, I would maybe send Support a ticket. Maybe the song is so good that the reviewers can’t make it all the way through without bursting into tears?

Clearly they have had it on repeat since the first listen, and everyone at Envato is dancing around the room together.

Way to make Envato unproductive for the day, Phil! :P
