Marketplace rankings frozen for 2 weeks, developers hit

c4d_ice_cube_7_new1800Pocketpc report that Marketplace ranking has been frozen for the last 2 weeks, meaning any new apps introduced have no chance of showing up at all (even Hydro Thunder Go is stuck at rank 1277).

Developers count on appearing in the top 100 of paid or free apps to give then a chance at not disappearing into the obscurity of 20,000 apps, and with this mechanism not working at all some are even thinking of delaying the release of their apps.

An anonymous developer has told 1800Pocketpc that a thread addressing the issue on Microsoft’s forums were deleted by Microsoft and attempts to receive an answer from Microsoft’s Marketplace support has fallen on deaf ears.
