Drastic changes in Elements Graphics review process

Is it only for me or something changed from new year? For five years I had almost zero percent of rejections on Elements Market and now 90% of items hard rejected. Even items that was approved on Graphicriver. Has anyone else experienced similar?

Same for me.

Last year (July - August) I have started to create much more Graphic items and 90% of them are accepted. And from December the situation is totally upside down - 90% items are rejected.
And that was situation in Dec last year and Jan this year. Last week I have started to upload again some items and the situation is better for me now at the moment (last 3 Graphic items are accepted and 0 rejected).

Same with me,

Even I 95% rejection.

Before december everything went smoothly and was always accepted, now it’s like competing,

I have submitted many tickets to ask the cause, but their answer is simple, namely the file does not match,

I think this changed because of the many changes in the people in the review team, and understandably with new people.

The Envato team told us a while ago that they are currently in a training period for new auditors, this happened to me, but I am attaching notes with the items to reviewers! :slight_smile:
This is GraphicRiver
As for Envato Elements, there is nothing we can do!
Repeatedly rejected! :frowning:

Same situation! Almost all the new items got hard rejection. No idea why! Some months ago all went smoothly :face_with_raised_eyebrow: @BenLeong can you please provide us more information if any design guideline has changed, as the author help center is quite slow?

@brandifystudio Thanks for tagging me in! I’ll check with our Ops team, and will let you know what I can find out.

Such huge percentage of rejections is demotivating.

This is ridiculous.
I have some letters series social media templates. Letters A B C D are accepted, and letter E is hard rejected, for example.
Now series doesn’t make sense. What is going on? I am on Envato for more then seven years, and never had any item rejected.

Can someone please pay some attention to this issue?

Hopefully this issue will be fixed soon and some clarification as to why this is happening,

This seems unnatural

Same here in elements. I have no idea what kind material to upload. Envato PLS fix that ASAP because 3 weeks without upload nothing, and if you see the website is the same, new content are stoped

Same with me, there are 15 templates that I sent. All of them meet the standards of Envato Elements, but all of them were rejected for no reason.

We hope someone can take care of this situation asap! It’s really frustrating to create during long hours having this unexpectated result. Something strange is going on with reviewers in Elements and GraphicRiver too. I know my templates meet all the requirements because I have been working since 2015. This last 2 months all new items were rejected.

Same here. Working for Envato since 2014 and 95% items are accepted. From January all items are hard rejected without explanation. So demotivating. Hope we hear some clarification soon.

Same here. The item I uploaded on 13th January hasn’t been reviewed yet. Still waiting and loosing my content bonus. Then I uploaded another item and that one got rejected within a day. The reason: “After reviewing this item we’ve decided that it is not the right fit for Envato Elements and will not be published.”

I’ve been here since the beginning of Elements and 95% of my items get approved. I’m starting to loose my motivation here…
