They don’t allow new authors over there for quite some time now. When they will open up the gates for new contributors is unknown.

Just for the record I see no direct sales on my statement since beginning of September. Do you think guys something is going on here? This has to be fixed.!!!

You do not see direct sales anymore because the $2 surcharge now goes completely to envato. They have announced that with the recent fee changes.

@collis, please give us the ability to refuse service to buyers. If we decide to refuse service / support, the rating must disappear, and the buyer must get a refund! He can even keep the item! There are those types of buyers that just make me wanna give them the item for free just to get rid of them. Absolutely IMPOSSIBLE to reach common ground.

imo, practices like that hurt the whole marketplace.

Don’t ask for the ability to give away money to people who don’t deserve it, better ask for a flawless rating system – or no rating system at all.

Over at videohive, posts are already popping up – even from our much respected mod felt tips – asking to get rid of the star rating completely because all it does is harm and no good.

I don’t know how it is on themeforest but I’d say at least at videohive, you can only lose out with ratings.

Posting on public forums that authors are willing to give away their money and their items to get rid of ratings that shouldn’t be allowed anyway just opens up all kind of possibilities for them who wants to get things for free. Just be a pain for the author and he is so glad about it he gives you all his items for free. No thank you.

It was more that Andrew Kramer gave away his template as a freebie and someone uploaded that to videohive.

Have you guys reported it already? If not, you should do it.

but can we, for example, give our files to other people without them having to buy it?
No.

Quick addition: No if you’re an exclusive author.

If you are non-exclusive, you can give away your item to whoever you like.

Solution: Don’t forget to plug in your HDD ;)

What do you want after effects to do when the chosen path is not available? Deactivate disk cache? It could switch back to the user-set path when that is available again, but I don’t think it is possible to do this. Adobe has to implement that.

I guess it is still the safest method to contact support regarding the specific case you want to do.

BTW, I think I report your mentioned affiliate links to support now, I’m afraid you die from a heart attack sooner or later if I don’t do it :D

Forum negativity aside, this is really a great place to work! This gets really swamped sometime, so from me too: Thanks for giving us this opportunity.

My favourite change in the last months were the introduced hover previews on videohive. A real timesaver and works like a charm!

So thanks dtbaker for this thread, where we can focus on the things why we are here!

Thanks envato for getting the most essential part totally right: The sales.

So what happens with my $17 items? I will earn more or less? :D
  1. if buyer pays with money in his account: you earn the same as before
  2. if buyer pays directly via paypal (or anything else): you earn less than before. You earn the same as in case 1
