Going on 8 days…
My new themes been sitting in the queue for 6 days now, apparently its at 11-12 right now definitely sucks, but they’re training new reviewers so thats a good thing!
However Envato would never create a separate queue for us. It would create an “unfair advantage”, although I still agree the Elite incentives program needs serious help. I dunno about you guys but things like shirts, hoodies and power rings don’t get me going…
Thanks for the update, but dang 11-12 days — really? Hope these new reviewers are quick learners! New theme is sitting at 4 days as of today…
- Although multipurpose themes offer more demos, their functionality, code, and structure are essentially the same as niche themes of a similar price.
You guys don’t understand how much time you have to invest to create all those demos, yes the underlying code is kinda similar however each demo can take hours to create and when you’re talking a 100+ of those, c’mon. Noway that’s going to happen especially for a one man show like myself. So you’re gong to tell me this trend is just going to continue and when people are releasing themes with a 1000+ demos, every plugin imaginable it’ll be the same price as a niche theme, makes total sense. You don’t have to a MBA to understand, time is money.
I submitted a theme update the other day was approved within 24 hours. However my new submission is going on 4 days…
I can only imagine the backlash I’m going to get from customers who purchased my themes before this, when they see a notification on my site stating they’re support plan has expired please purchase an extended, blah, blah…”.
Just thinking out loud here can’t we as authors sell our own support packs outside of Envato anyways? From the beginning support was optional, now Envato is trying to capitalize on it by taking a cut of something they should have nothing to do with. Whats to stop us by selling support extensions on our own sites?
Maximilius saidWait! What? you are using pretty photo for reviewing items? It means if we submit a design on day 1 and decided to change the homepage on day 3 reviewers will see the design on day 1?
This largely comes from us having completed our review of prettyPhoto re-submissions. Along with this we are still hiring additional staff to ensure that we are better equipped to tackle these incidents and get your work processed faster.
Right now, the entire pricing structure is way below the market price of WordPress themes.
All themes should go up and priced better along with multi-purpose themes going to a higher price point than niche and focused themes.So a big +1 to this. We seriously don’t get the $1 price raise across the board. That is a very conservative test and the data gathered after this change might not really prove anything.
Thank you for agreeing, your guys’ theme alone is probably carrying half the companies salaries lol.
Envato—listen to your people, for god sakes.
