...if authors would refrain from making mistakes, the reviewers could review more files much quicker! ;)

I don’t leave them in on purpose. They just find a way of sneaking in during the upload process. I blame google chrome.

In fact looking at themewaves logo, that if it was angled so the three lines pointed vertically from the bottom would be perfect (not inciting plagiarism at all here).

You have the suggestion of a globe with the circle, the suggestion of a hand smacking it and the three prongs make a W (web smacker).

Again, not inciting plagiarism but there are clever ways of portraying your brand without stating the obvious.

Oh and btw @themewaves, I really like your logo!

The facebook logo includes neither a face nor a book, Flickr doesn’t use a camera and most web companies have now moved away from using cliche images such as globes and cursors etc.

The most important thing is that it is easy to read and nice to look at. Any emphasis on purpose should be clever and/or subtle. I was a big fan of the flickr circle that used to be used for iphone apps as it suggested a camera without being too obvious. Twitter is a very simple bird icon that would be instantly recognisable because of it’s simplicity.

As my lecturer used to say to me…

“Oh good, you’re getting all the bad ideas out early, good idea!”

I hated that guy, but I quickly began to appreciate what he had to teach.

I’m getting a little edgy, I go on holiday for three weeks very soon and I need to make sure this is all approved and any reasons for rejection are sorted.

Is this just down to a staff shortage or a huuuuuuge influx in files?

I think they are asking you to make your 1 ae file a bit more flexible to the end user. Try to create your template so that it works for a text range of 2 – 12 letters and also an image. I for one have an image as a logo and no text.

You want this to sell to as many people as possible and the more flexible you make it, the more customers you will attract.

It’s been a while since I uploaded anything to Videohive but my current item has been sat in the queue for 6 days now.

Is this now standard? I’m not necessarily complaining, it would just be good to know how long to expect to wait. That might be a nice feature to add once you upload, similar to when you are on hold.

“We expect your call to be answered in 30 minutes” becomes “current approval waiting time is 4 – 5 days”.

Currently enjoying our Friday night printing table place cards and sending stupid amounts of money to photographers and caterers but all will be worth it come the big day.

Cheers for all the ‘congrats’ and stuffs. Now we just have to keep our fingers crossed for some sunshine.
