MusicBoxStudios saidTo that end, if you have people willing to go that far it is a very bad sign…
Free discussion is one thing. When you start to promote mass exodus and essentially threaten the vitality of a company, you should expect to be shut down.
I just hope envato starts listening before it’s too late. Still waiting on that epic search engine rehaul we’ve heard that was happening over 3 years now among other things. They should see, feel & understand why people are venting and are frustrated by the lack of implementation of some very logical and reasonable suggested changes by authors over the years here. And when theres little to no response by those in charge it just makes it even more frustrating.
Nice discussion. A key point that seems to have been missed and is definitely a very key contributor to the hows & whys of a track being successful or not is VideHive. I’d be willing to bet that VH drives somewhere close to 40-50% of all AJ sales.
Not bad and thanks for sharing. Would be interesting to see what happens if I were ever featured author…not hinting or anything tho…lol
Thats so awesome
Awesome stuff. Congrats!
Some good suggestions and really nothing that hasnt been suggested before in the past by others. Sadly as great as AJ really is, its pretty obvious that suggestions by authors arent really taken seriously into consideration much at all. There have been TONS of great suggestion thrown in by authors over the years from the likes of Tim all the way down to BrandNewAuthor1001 and nothing really gets done. It’s a shame really IMO.
Looks like May was pretty good to everyone . Thumb up.
davidhollandsworth saidCongrats. It seems the home page is becoming less and less (and less!) important. Doesnt help that the featured artist is at the bottom of the page.
Well, I’ve been featured artist for 2 days and not a single sale!! lol But I do have a few more followers.
Best of luck to ya!
TimMcMorris saidSeriously this. What are the repercussions for not following the rules?
Understandable that it’s a big task to police, however, when it is discovered that a user is uploading exclusive music to other royalty free sites – ban them for life.. This isn’t something that really needs second chances is it? A harsh penalty would greatly discourage it I believe. The main people do it is because the ramifications are so small.
Envato: “Hey buddy, we caught you with tracks on different sites even though you’re exclusive. Stop that!!!”
ShamefulAuthorMusic: “Errr…ok. I just opted out of exclusivity. Thanks for letting me know.”
Envato: “Ok we’ll pretend it never happened.”
