I don’t know about you people, but I’m experiencing more and more disappointments in Envato and their review process in particular.
Recently, many new reviewers have been employed and their opinions are so different that I tend to get some very strange rejections.
Example 1 - When I submit two resolution versions (4k and 1080p) of the SAME footage, it often happens that one gets accepted and the other gets rejected. The SAME, IDENTICAL footage!
Example 2 - I tend to submit multiple clips from the same shooting: same lighting, same subject, but with difference in angles, interactions and camera work. But although some clips get accepted, some get rejected - not because they are duplicate, not because of technical issues, but because the content - even though the content is the same as with those that are accepted!
A few times so far I’ve fallen into the “trap” of contacting the support, and after losing a few days of going back and forth with support staff which are ignorant of inner workings of the system they represent, I decided to simply give up.
For 6 years I’ve been exclusive here, highly motivated and strongly devoted author/contributor and forum/community participant, but lately I feel like we’re treated like expendable goods.
Rant over, thank you for reading
