I can understand if an author is new and has the first 50-100 items to submit and must be manually reviewed and “guided” to Envato’s rules and quality standards.
It make no sense making a single queue “waiting for approval” even for professionals that submit quality work for years now.
Once that an author understands what the requirements are, knows what to submit and is not his interest submiting low quality items because the main reason everyone uploads here is because they want to sell (…or maybe someone uploads items just to test his upload speed? I don’t exclude that
Why a professional would like to have low quality items in his portfolio here or anywhere else?
I’m asking Envato if is possible to have items approved without a review if the author is well known that is submitting quality items. This will free the review queue and optimize time for both Envato and authors.
OK. Let’s assume that in the near future there will be “certificated authors” that are approved without a review (another badge by the way :-). Then after In 50-100 items they submit a “low quality” item in terms of Envato quality standards. How to find it?
A. Comments from users
B. Report a low quality item button
C. The fact that an item is not sold at least once in one year can be a signal for Envato and author that is not suitable for the marketplace or is low quality.
I’m sure that you can find a solution in order to avoid more that 3-4 days of queue for all the marketplaces.
Automatism for proven “quality authors” can be the answer.
Now while I’m writing I see my 7 AudioJungle items that have from 5 to 18 days in queue waiting for approval.
