Very long extension moderation process

  • It sure would be infinitely easier and cheaper for both developers and Opera if the Opera team would allow extensions to be loaded from the Chrome Web Store as the Vivaldi and Brave browsers do.

    Here is my math:

    Cost for developers to submit and Opera to review extensions = X
    Cost if we just used the Chrome Web Store = 0

    X divided by 0 = ∞

    Does anyone see a mistake in my math?

  • Previously, it was, through an extension called "Install Chrome Extensions". Now it does not work. I can not understand the development path of the Opera browser

  • I submitted a new extension and its still awaiting moderation since 5 April 2019.Could a moderator please give me an update?.

    Extension ID : bpijoicbfembopnchnpmnnjjlhflmddi

    Kind Regards

  • @seosnitchosm In the queue please, I have from Dec 3, 2018 🙂
    But seriously, people do not moderate over the years. It's very sad

  • F-Notifier v2.2.1 was submitted. Awaiting moderation.

    I'm sad... 😕

  • 2 months ago the moderation process started over again. But now is dead again. Even extensions with hundreds of thousands of users are on hold.
    It's impossible to work for Opera this way.

  • @kurtq Why do you need an extension Opera? write for Google Сhrome, Chrome extensions work very well on Yandex.

  • @adsfactory-russia Is the extension from the Google Chrome store can be installed on Yandex? The manual of Yandex states that it installs extensions from the Opera store

  • @kurtq said in Very long extension moderation process:

    Yes, of course you can, I do not know what is written in the documentation, but the extensions work fine, so you can try installing on Yandex. Google Crome, Yandex and Opera are written on the Blink engine (created by Google corp.) and basically there are no problems with extensions.
    But Opera developers block and do not allow the installation of extensions from Google Play. For me, this is a shock, the developers themselves for several years have not been able to fix the mess in their work, they haven’t checked the expansion for years and didn’t allow the installation through a Google Play.
    Let the Opera developers at least learn from the best, allow the installation of extensions through Google Play before they finish their work on automatically checking extensions, then allow them to allow installation only through your store. I do not understand, why they torment users for years? They are waiting for all developers to rebel and ignore the Opera as a whole, as was the case with the Internet Explorer ...))) Microsoft also tormented all web developers with its non-standard browser, in the end everyone started to refuse IE. And only In the end, Microsoft realized its mistake and, starting with IE 11, made normal browsers with generally accepted standards ...

  • How are things going with "automatic moderation"? Someone moderated recently?

  • Is there any way to get information from developers on the status of the moderation process? I have queued my extension on 26.04, and still not a single sign from Opera. If any admin reads it, my package ID is 236717. It has never been reviewed.
    If there is something wrong with the extension I'd like to know that and fix it. Same if you need some additional information / access. But I've never heard back from anyone, this is very frustrating 😕

  • I'm waiting nearly 2 years now guys 🤷🏼♂

  • Guys, my addition is moderated for quite a while. How to know when it will be ready?

  • @sklad2222 -> Never

  • "was submitted. Awaiting moderation.
    commaticus; Jun 25, 2019 3:26:53 PM UTC"

    Until now, nothing happens. I have not come across such a long moderation before. For the first time since 2015, so long. How to release updates with such delays?

  • Merging topics.

  • @commaticus My extension is almost a year on moderation, many updates have already been released, I’m not adding new ones here anymore. Those that have already been added are not deleted because it is interesting whether they will be moderated or not.

  • Someone has information about the causes? Why is extension moderation currently suspended?

  • After I've posted a message here I received a rejection the very next day. I fixed stuff they wanted right away nad now.... Almost a month since then - nothing again, just silence. It seems like they just don't care about extensions and developers. I don't remember such poor moderation process ever.
