Very long extension moderation process
oktools last edited by
Hello. Why can’t my extension be published for more than 2 months? Users complain that it does not work (see the latest comments in the reviews). Other extensions at https://addons.opera.com/en/ are updated, and new ones appear every day. My extension has over 1 million downloads, good reviews. Google Chrome and Mozilla Firefeh published a new version during the day. Why are there such delays in Opera? In the panel, the developer generally moderators do not respond.

Our moderation queue is integrated with the points system mentioned by @tprockow. We are in the process of fine-tuning its parameters to give priority to good or popular extensions, yours included. It should be much better now.
Sounds great. However, this is not very similar to reality. It doesn't really look like something has changed.
Since the update you posted on Aug 6, 2019 9:15:56 AM UTC none of the following has been accepted or rejected. All subsequent updates are just "Awaiting moderation".
Last update I posted on Aug 30, 2019 2:11:29 PM UTC
Play Shikimori Online v1.1.0 on Opera Developer: Published.
Play Shikimori Online v1.1.0 on Opera Next: Published
But not Opera Stable.
For Opera Stable comes the update of Aug 6, 2019 9:15:56 AM UTC — you posted. ️

@tnowak It seems to me that life would be much easier for everyone if Opera would simply close Opera Add-Ons and build support for the Chrome Web Store into Opera. Why not let a 800 billion dollar corporation with 98,000 employees do the moderation work and store maintenance for you - for free? It works for Vivaldi. It works for Brave. Without Opera Add-Ons, Opera staff could spend more time draining those bug queues – or taking longer weekends

@jerrykrinock In my opinion this is not a good idea. Would you let any other company decide which features would be available in your product and which would not? After all, if Google one day decides to change its policy and block all extensions that look or feel bad in one way or another, then Opera will lose all products.
It is not good to depend on another company.
In addition, the Opera has its own APIs and its own moderation policy. Here's an example:
SaveFrom.net helper - this extension was quietly added to the Opera Store but not allowed in the Chrome Store;

@brainierweb until jerrykrinock answered, I will try to give you an answer. You may not have noticed, but over the past 3-4 years, the opera extensions have had the same problems, they have remained, nothing has changed. You ask, would I like another company to interfere in my affairs? if I can’t work correctly and my clients have problems from my “bad” work, yes, such a company should either close or cooperate with a company that can solve problems. If you indicate that google may block some extensions, so what? there will only be 3-5% of these, but the remaining 95% of normal extensions will work and update normally, do you understand this?
the Opera has its own APIs - Opera and Google chrome work on one engine, the extension for chrome works fine on opera
moderation policy - should not be a bureaucratic tool, it should work correctly, which, unfortunately, is not here

It has been a year since we submitted our extension for moderation process. We even submitted a zip since the reviewer asked for unobfuscated code. Since then i haven't received any response to any of the messages. Why is this taking so long for you guys?

DownThemAll! could do with a review too: jbnaedlikijnpehkfbcepmnbgkebohkm
So far it seems no version was ever been reviewed, and Opera users are now getting mad at me, as if this was my fault.
