Hurro,

Not complaining, just curious as I've been out of it for six months...

What are the average review times on StockXpert that folks are seeing these days?

Cheers, Me.

Mine usually overnite. Sometimes there is a small delay of a day.

I've had images in the queue for over a week!

Between a day and 10 days depending on when I submit them, how many, how quickly I add MRs etc.

Hmmm, OK, now I've got 5 images over 10 days...  Something odd is going on.

Well, this IS strange.... One must wait a few days (so must I BTW.) and another is supposed to wait just a few hours? At the same time? Either somebody is boasting and making up the very short times... or it is a clear example of favouritism. I do not know which one I would prefer...

Ya, I think they hate me. :-).

Would seem very odd, a couple of the people who responded have similar or smaller ports on there, so it's not a 'big contributor' thing.

Might email support there, and see if I've done something silly...

For vector review times are very short, once I didn't manage to set categories in time. But picture review times are pretty long for me. Donno why.

Well, my oldest lot got reviewed, and now the oldest ones un-reviewed are from the 18th, so it just looks like they're on the go-slow...

That's OK, as long as things are moving it doesn't worry me that it's slowly. :-)

i don't think snurder or miz were boasting ... peep..
i think it has more to do with each of our acceptance/rejection percentage.

i found that out lately . at the beginning my shots too were taking forever to be approved (or rejected), then lately it was quite prompt.
but i had my acceptance percentage up... almost conversely
ie. submit 10, 8 rejects vs submit 5 , 1 reject).

i hope i explained it well.

Arrrr,  So if we've got a low acceptance rate the review times go up you mean?

That sounds fair to me..

Steve, can you confirm that?

I also suspect that is what is happening.  I have a good acceptance rate there and my files are almost always  approved within a day.Or possibly even based on ranking.  I don't know if it's policy there or if the reviewers choose which batch they want and it is quicker to review files without many mistakes.

Well, I do not know. They have accepted about 90 per cent of what I sent them. But e.g. last week I sent two images which were accepted almost immediately - within a few hours. And the batch before those two (about two dozens) seemed to have taken ages... I suspect that the larger batch I send, the longer it takes to get through the reviewers.

acceptance rate = 70%...have a batch now approaching 13 days...not sure what the math is there...

Hi everyone!

There are a few factors which explains why the wait for images reviews are longer than they used to be. The first is that we have experienced a few technical difficulties in the past few months. The second reason is that more and more people are interested in contributing to the site which means there are many more images to review. We have new Editors on board but it takes a while to get them trained and up to speed.

As for reviewing newer images before older ones, I can assure you that we are not playing favorites by any means. Unfortunately we are constraint by the tools we have and in some cases newer images will be reviewed before older ones.

There are exciting changes coming soon on all ends of the site which will greatly improve everyone`s experiences. We greatly appreciate your patience and understanding and rest assured that we are doing our best to get to your images.

Thanks!!


It's funny that vectors that I submitted 4 days after the photos are selling already and photos are still pending.

Hi guys,

I love reading all the theories here about our review times. :)

So I will answer some questions.

First of all vectors go into a completely separate queue than photos. Vectors are reviewed by a different team, so photo time and vector time have nothing to do with each other.

And photo review order is completely random. When the site was built, they wanted something that was basic and functional out the door. When review times were 24-48 hours, this was not an issue. And we are committed to returning review times back this time frame.

As I've said before, if your images have not been reviewed within a week's time, send a note to me or to CS through the "contact us" form.

Thanks!
-Steve

How is the popularity ranking determined? Wouldn't like my photos to be burried under a lot of other photos because of that, it's enough that they get burried in the date ranking by the quickly reviewed photos.

Popularity is determined by some weighted combination of downloads, date, views and some other stuff (not sure the exact magical formula).

Date is review date, not upload date.

Thanks!

even as a newbie, StockXpert has never been one to take a long time to review,
in comparision to the others that could go into weeks (zzzzz).
But as my acceptance improved and my sales started coming in, yes,
i too, has found my review to be almost overnight.
even for re-submits.

that being said, it also means you get a rejection just as fast ;D ;D  ;D

but still, i do like StockXpert big time, as when i resubmit to correct what they ask me to do, it gets approved equally instant . cheers StockXpert! 8)

Lately reviews have only taken a day or so.  Today I uploaded 3 images around 9 am, and they were approved by 11 am.

Yes few hours or a day for the maximum. StockXpert review times are the very best of micros I think.

It seems the rumors about more images & more sales = faster review times is true.  I haven't waited 24 hours for a review since I passed 500 images online and $20 earned.  It seems they want to help me now. lol 

I still can't get a folder fixed...but it's only 60 files.  No worries, I guess.

I had a batch of 10 photos that I put descriptions to. I submited and checked the status right away.   All approved except the last one I keyworded.   They must have it on automatic during the summer?  5sec reviewtime:)

I uploaded 45 images yesterday (Sat) morning and am still awaiting review.  Perhaps their automated summer system doesn't work on weekends  ;)

Uploaded a couple this morning, they were approved within a few hours.  Four others I uploaded in the afternoon are still waiting.

Something is strange in my potfoilo here!?



Last month I have approved 100 % of my uploaded photos!
Also review time is very short,maybe couple of hours very often, but never more than one day.
But I haven't yet any sales here for a three month, only here, of big 6...
