Yes GBS because I think he have a lot of sales in this account
It’s clear and simple we can’t stop Giraffes because we are some individual designers and if we will spend all our time fetching links and sending DCMA we will not founding time to create our designs.
But the problem is in Envato the biggest company with a lot of employers around the world and payed with our money, and really until now from 1 year when this subject is opened I don’t see any positive reaction and REAL SOLUTIONS provided for this problem like the Envato company don’t interest or he accept this the GIRAFFES method, because there are a lot solutions can be applied to at least reducing this traffic because now 95% of my portfolio is for free and my sales is down about 60% WHAY ?? we need to accept this state and continue working.
Really I respect all STAFF , REVIEWERS , ADMIN , AUTHORS ,BUYERS but I really feel that this place is not our home but is our JAIL and we are the SLAVES of GIRAFFES + ENVATO.
Really Sorry and Good luck For all.
Best regards, BaGeRa.
Welcome to the club tommyhanus all my items is outside graphicriver now.
Good luck for all authors and be patient
Welcome to the Club and sorry there are no way to protect yourself from Giraffes. and about your idea they can just make a screenshot and got what they need, not necessary the hole file preview.
Sorry guys we need to live with this handicap…
Please today I got a “Sale reversal” $-3.54 in my statement table and never got this line in 3 years in Envato, this is a new rule ?? and the message is “A sale reversal is the result of an cancelled payment, enforced by the payment gateway or bank. Please contact support for more information.” what about my item ?? and the buyer download it ?? there are something not clear about this case and I don’t get a mail notification for this canceled item.
Please Envato staff we need more informations about this message.
Best regards, BaG.
+1 Yes indieground, very nice idea, at least bad votes must have a feedback for authors understand where is the problem and like what we can flag that vote as invalid.
And please don’t forget Giraffe Bandits Buy -> Download -> Vote 1 star. this is maybe a way to track them.
I think that Envato team may clean up ratings from banned and deleted users, and I think that 1 star rating can be a key to detect Giraffe Users too
Yes we need to know, you have right BlueMonkeyLab, because in some items you found 9×5 stars and 1×1 star that it’s not logical and maybe there are something wrong with this user or maybe just to make your item look bad!! and if we know maybe we update items to correct some bugs if there are or to add some specific request for this user.
Good luck Friends
Thank you a Lot My friend Sherman and good luck for all next authors
