There are several ways you can help the extension submission process go faster and smoother. As you may know, the Joomla! Extension Directory is supported by volunteers and it takes time to go through all the extensions. You can help to speed up the approval process by making sure your extension:
You are not allowed to vote for extensions:
This applies also to people directly related to you: family, colleagues, employees and partners.
You can´t. Identity of JED users will never be revealed. What we can do is to invite a user to contact developer when developer wants to help out with an issue raised in reviews. Developer should then provide us with contact details, and then we will provide this information to the user.
Categories in JED is constantly evolving to cope with the increasing amount of extensions. We strive to provide a good categorization to fit all extensions listed in JED. If you feel that an extension deserved to be in another existing or new category, please use the "Report This" button and let us know about your suggestion. You can also open a support ticket.
If you are unsure where to publish your extension, a good starting point would be to look at other related extensions and find where they are listed.
No. You are allowed to list your extension once in a category in JED.
No. Extensions can be listed in one category only.
We suggest that you use the Description field in your extension listing to communicate the suitability of your extension in other areas.
Extension specific categories can be requested by a developer but are created at the sole discretion of the Joomla! Extensions Directory team and the CLT. In general, extension specific categories are created when there are 5 or more published extension-specific listings for a parent extension created by developers. To request an extension-specific category, open a Support Ticket and provide a link to the listings that would go into the new category. Developers are welcome to create extension specific listings for other extensions.

When an extension its confirmed insecure it is unpublished from JED and listed at VEL (Vulnerable Extensions List)
Each entry gets its own ID. A name alias will be created for that entry
We support the original project developer whenever possible to maintain the integrity of the listings and also support developers who are building and innovating on the Joomla platform. To have a forked project listed in the JED it must meet additional requirements over original extension
When an entry its unpublished a short note its displayed in the public page. An email is sent to the developer. You can contact with JED team by the Ticket Support System to solve issues and get your extension republished.
