As it is, on average content creators see maybe 40% (if that many)of uploaded designs having sales during the initial 60 day period. After this period, many of us will inevitably end up re-uploading many of these designs, after being judged worthwhile.
I have personally seen many designs sell well after being given the second chance, and am extremely pleased by that.
I think it would be in the best interest of all of us to add a tab that gives the option to relaunch designs that have fallen victim to the timer.

Agree. After my application was approved, I uploaded 25 designs. None sold and expired. Re-uploaded them. Then half of them started selling.

This is a circular suggestion that would defeat the whole purpose of the 60 day rule. It would be the same as having no timer if all you had to to do was a click a few buttons and the shirt would be live again in the marketplace

I'm confused about this suggestion. What do you mean by an "uploaded design" or a "sale"?
By "uploaded design", do you mean a published skill? Does this mean that if you publish a skill and no one adds it to their Echo or Dot within sixty days, the skill is removed from the catalog?
Also, what do you mean by "sale"? Last I checked, you can't charge for skills. What are you selling?

Defeats the purpose

I don't understand the need for this when you can just upload it again. I think the point of the 60 day timer is to remove designs that don't sell and clutter up the marketplace, so adding an easy relaunch button just means it will be easier to keep re-uploading more designs that don't sell. I understand your point that some of them eventually do but wouldn't that just add to the cluttered problem again if everyone could easily re-launch? Like Ryan said, doesn't this defeat the purpose of the 60 day timer? Maybe I'm missing something.

Why upload all over again when you can relaunch with one button click? It does not defeat the purpose if you think a design will sell. It has happened multiple times with multiple people, it's not shooting in the dark. Indeed, some designs do not deserve a second chance but some do. It is also not mandated that you have to relaunch designs. Many of my allotted daily uploads are doing the same thing again, and month after month I end up with more permanent designs that sell (again many of them given a second chance)

My problem with re-uploading is that is clutters up my dashboard. I would prefer a tab. And I would prefer that if I am the one deleting the design, it simply goes away.
