Hi everyone,

Quick update regarding staffing and the queues.

1) We are still hiring, though we’ve already hired several new reviewers. In fact, I hired another new reviewer just this morning! They are in training, which takes a bit of time, and will be getting up to speed quickly. Even though we’ve hired several new reviewers, we’re still understaffed because all our awesome authors are submitting so many new items in all the various categories. But this is a good thing and we’re continuing our hiring and will get ahead of the curve!

2) Due to time required for training and hiring, some of the queues have fallen even farther behind, but hang in there as it will be getting better soon.

Thanks so much for your patience everyone. We’ll be working on many new implementations to prevent this in the future, but also bear in mind it is sometimes the nature of markets such as these during rapid growth. As an author that may sound scary, but it translates to more items, a better library and ultimately more sales.

I’m monitoring this thread and will continue posting updates as things progress and I have time to jump in (like right now before my doctor appointment). :-)

thanks @ jremick for the statement. Have there yet been team-internal considerations about making registration only possible for authors with a certain skill level / who fullfilling certain requirements ?

This, and similar ideas, have been discussed but are not of interest at this point in time.

Thanks for keeping us up to date. My submission rate has slowed with the double figure of days waiting so maybe it will be the same for others, so easing the pressure a bit. Faster reviewing is an incentive. feeling a bit demotivated right now but looking forward to the thrill of those progress bars speeding up.

So glad that these havent been taken into consideration, as many Authors become or grow into good designers and artists because of this platform and scope which would have been sad if only a certain level of skill was required here.

Good point – i never would have been accepted, and have learned just about everything i know by studying what is accepted. This, and similar ideas, have been discussed but are not of interest at this point in time.

Exactly. Our mission is to help people earn and learn, online. Our interest is in innovations that advance both those goals. :-)
