Common reasons for rejection include lacking wide appeal to consumers, a suboptimal user experience, quality or security issues, incompatibility, and similarity to another featured add-on. Rejected add-ons cannot be re-nominated within 3 months.
I wonder how strict this rule is, since both Adblock Plus and UBlock Origin are featured (yet very similar).
I have a relatively new add-on, which has a growing user-base and is similar to another featured add-on. I think it’s superior to the other listed add-on. Is there a chance this will be considered?
Or will this only be done for add-ons which have a huge user-base like the above add-ons?
My add-on doesn’t meet the 500 users criteria yet, but it has reached the 200 mark within 3 weeks, which kinda took me by surprise, as I mostly made this for myself (since the other add-ons progress is slow and some requests have been denied completely).
I’m just wondering if it’s at all a possibility.
