When I came at AJ I have submit few thousands sounds manually one by one… they do it in other way
This is simply absolutely false. All items, from ANY account are submitted one by one on AJ, whether by a single person, or an independent group of sound producers working together on one account.
It’s obvious again there is a lot of presumption going on, and assumptions about new accounts with large amounts of submissions having different submission rights.
AudioJungle is not in a position to refuse access to any interested party who wishes to submit content. And not all content is simply accepted in bulk.
Sound content from accounts that meet the bulk processing criteria (25+ items in queue at once) is filtered first, then may be processed, accepted or rejected in batches, at the discretion of the processing team. Files that are deemed not acceptable are also rejected in bulk processing. Just because those accounts are not vocal on the forums today, it does Not mean that it’s not happening
It’s also noteworthy to add that AudioJungle has lifted certain restrictions on certain types of items that it stopped accepting in the past. For example, higher quality water sounds, may be accepted now, regardless of who submits them.
That said, AudioJungle understands the genuine concerns of the masses, However, there is a difficult choice to make.
Either the library adapts its processing to accommodate a fast growing influx of new content from teams of sound producers wishing to work under one account, OR – continue to process the items one at a time, in which case the “What is the Queue Length” threads would become a lot more vocal if waits passed 3+ weeks – even if the review team doubled in size – of this I’m sure.
For now, again, all items are submitted individually on every account. There is however a real matter of scalability and maintaining a balance, while adapting to market forces on both sides of the equation.
Hey everyone, just to quell all the speculation here, the matter has been resolved with DreiKelvin privately, two days ago.
The reviewer who processed the submission is going to be thrown from a cliff. Anyone want a job? You’ll just need to make sure you NEVER press the wrong button by mistake.
Just kidding of course, we take all aspects of the process seriously, and when we conclude that a processing action doesn’t add up, we will take measures to contact the author(s) privately to resolve the matter rightfully.
Thanks for all your feedback, guys and gals, it means a lot.
Hello to all our Sound Effect authors!
We just wanted to let you all know that we’ll soon begin using an accelerated processing system for established sound authors with multiple uploads (having more than 25 in the queue at once). This means authors meeting this criteria may have groups of their items processed at once.Things to note:
- The upload process remains the same.
- Only Sound Effects will currently be processed in this way.
- An “established” author would have more than 20 accepted sound items with their first older than 30 days.
- We may adjust this criteria according to the needs of the Review team and queues.
Depending on the state of the queues, this will be starting shortly, at the discretion of the Review team.
Please let us know if you have any questions or feedback & thanks for your attention.
Thanks for writing here about this issue. The quality team looked into it and it’s apparent there was a distinct processing error, an admittedly rare occurrence, which is an incorrect dispatch from the review team’s side. It was meant to be accepted, and the automated reply text you got was in error.
Since it was a soft rejection update, AJ cannot overturn the rejection into an approval, but the item should now appear again in your hidden items tab as a soft rejection.
You can resubmit the item’s files with a note to the reviewers and the item will be processed as described in the first soft rejection note you got.
If you have any further questions on the matter, please write a note to email@example.com with Attn:AJ Quality team in the subject and a link to this forum post, to expedite your ticket.
Regretting the inconvenience, and appreciate your understanding
Hello everyone, just a quick update on the queue times. Yes, we’re still getting more and more submissions! As a consequence, we’ve adjusted reviewing schedules for March – so expect times to start coming down in the next few weeks.
Maybe Soundizer will do the review process now. Updated with the most complex algorithm specialized in attack and transients of ukulele and delayed mute guitars.Every track containing at least 60% of identified uke and/or delay guitar and RMS level of -8.00 dB will directly get approved.
Udo you should start a psychic hotline. How did you know???
Most of them are loops where the preview is just longer to show looping points. The authors themselves put in the wrong length.
Yes, that’s what the case would usually be for the most part, historically.
But big thanks for noticing, Stockwaves. Your item is confirmed an error from your last update. It’s fixed now. We’ll make sure there are no glitches on any of those items due to any past backend changes, and anything that needs to be corrected will be. However, the fact that it’s just 32 items is pretty reassuring as it looks like exceptional anomalies, if they’re not simple errors from way back.
Interesting post, but it ends with a very different conclusion than the premise.
It’s ended by questioning the validity of limiting submissions, but the premise, as seen by the title is “Shutting Down New Contributor Submissions.” and
I have seen the many reasons not to close off the site for new contributors. But I think there are many reasons to do this.
From the outset, we can tell you that we will not shut down submissions for any newcomers who wish to join the community.
Case in point – Imagine you (or any other talented musician) has not found AJ yet. Tomorrow, we’ll announce that “Hey Everyone! Due to oversaturation and too many authors already, we’re stopping submissions.”
Then, the following day, you hypothetically discover AudioJungle on a blog post but you missed the cutoff by one day, one week, or one month, it doesn;t matter.. But! you’ve got really great tracks and you could be the next PinkZebra, or even have any measure of success.
But hey, sorry dude, you should have signed up yesterday because we shut the door now because we have too many submissions…so tough luck, buddy.
You see where we’re going here? It would be very poor business acumen to do so, allowing potential talent to walk away and perhaps not come back if/when we allowed submissions again, And it would be pretty frustrating and unfair to any new community members, which we certainly do want to welcome.
Now, as far as limiting certain types of uploads, it’s a completely different hypothesis and it also certainly has its pros and cons.
Anyway, just wanted to chime in there. Feel free to share your thoughts.
