As most have become aware of the ballooning review times, particularly on Audiojungle, and envato just announing that certain authors would be eligible to update an items files automatically with no need for a reviewer, I think it’s a good idea to continue to the think about other ways review times can get back to a more reasonable level.
My idea I’d like to propose to envato is that they would come up with a way for authors to automatically create bundles without the need for a review process. The way this would work is this: When you select on the dashboard to upload a bundle it would go to a page showing all your portfolio items (in the category you are uploading (music pack, logo pack, graphics pack etc…). An item would be greyed out if it has already been included in a bundle but if it hasn’t already been included there would be a checkbox by that item. To create a bundle you would select the items you would like to be included in a bundle and then fill out a text box with your bundle description. Basically, if Envato could implement an automated process where after selecting the items you want in a bundle and you fill out all necessary fields the system would automatically create the files needed from the existing zip files and the existing previews.
Since all bundled items have already been reviewed for their quality the only need for a review of those items now is to make sure all the main file items have been bundled together properly and the appropriate links to the original files have been created and a few other technical things like this. If all these things could be automated that would eliminate a big load for the reviewers.
Any thoughts on this idea or additions to what I already thought of?
