No one likes to waste time. This is why envato should start a section for buyers and sellers to connect. Buyers can request items and sellers know what the buyers want so they build it. This will drive more sales for envato and creators can be spending their time working on something useful.
I don’t like the idea of me spending months on a script then submitting it to envato and then they reject it without saying the reason. This process is very frustrating.
Back that time at 2007/2009, they were actually giving the information what they needed/what they wanted but there wasn’t so much authors then.
You will get that experience after sometime if you keep working on the projects but the key is the unique design and features. No one is going to share their good ideas for the public - it would cause the same issue. After a month, everyone would be doing the same project and they will have to reject the items again - this time, they will have to draw a border somewhere to prevent similar items.
