Hey guys, apologies for the delay.
To start off I wanted to quickly acknowledge that Envato as a whole is very much aware of the on-going struggle plaguing Stock Footage review times. We want everyone to know that we are not simply ignoring the problem, we’re working tirelessly behind the scenes to play a relentless game of catchup.
We spent the last 6 months increasing our resources in the review team to try to combat the record breaking submission numbers that we’ve seem month on month. Even with the larger team, the incoming submissions still seem to increase faster than we can add people. This unfortunately means review times are growing rather than shrinking. I understand just how frustrating this must be and for this issue I sincerely apologize.
Where can we go from here?
Well there’s a few initiatives going on behind the scenes that should provide some relief for the long wait times, but no firm time frames as to when these will happen. And for the more immediate time frame, we’re organizing meetings with a few key team members to try to see if there’s anything we can do short term that will provide enough support to get back ahead. All while we’re still increasing our reviewing capacity a bit further.
So on that note I’ll end this with one final apology for any inconvenience these delays may have caused anyone and promise to work diligently in the coming weeks to try to get some measurable results for you guys.
