Happy Birthday Envato. Those badges looks great. Great work, and thanks for this gift to us.
Some. I have alot of 3 this month for random days, but this week behaviour surprised me:
I am late! Follow your heart and good luck!
Congrats man. Don’t slow down! I still have some rivers to cross to get there!
As a girl, I would have to disagree, we don’t forget anything. Especially that lie from 4 years ago! +1 to Pauloreg Just be yourself and treat whoever you’d like to date as you would like to be treated. Kindness goes a long way.
Yeah, I failed on typing. I said girls do forget in fact they don’t forget.
+1 Creattive. Just be yourself man! If she is your type then she will be yours, if you try too hard and get her she will find out with the time. Girls do forget things easily, even if you lied once 4 years ago!
The video seems too fake and over the reality especially on balancing and height. Some are too confortable and one is faking doing skate with it. About the product I think if it is remote controlled where there is someone controlling you over the board I think it can be true but not as showed on this video.
I don’t see a problem if an author wants to hide his badges, its up to him, its his desire and concern!
In fact the earnings badge attracts more buyers and motivates sellers to earn more and keep doing works because you get the feel of falling behind, so you can see that someone earns more than you and you can try to compete just for motivation. If it motivates you it can desmotivate some people that sees that you are making good money by just selling files easily and they are sitting on offices every day.
Hiding badges is not a factor for evasion of taxes, it will hit you one day, is just requesting your statement to Envato and you are done.
“hiding badges does not help”. I think it improves privacy a bit because with your badge visible the probability of someone get to know you is high. Think of curious people coming from search engines to envato will not understand that much about how the badge system works (unless he joins), its a mere fact of he clicking your name to reach your profile and get your information and can easily know about you especially if you have sensitive information.
Someone said that taxes only applies to companies, that’s not true, there are laws regarding to revenues and activity. Envato is something new for alot of people and alot of countries, when the government starting to get familiar with this kind of activities tough rules will be coming to certain countries.
“Authors have records of earned money but in our world some authors not even have those amount of money, they use it, some can be converted to assets. Envato could be primary source of earnings for most authors. Earnings badge is a mind trick thing, it gives a feel that the author have those amount of money on their accounts but it don’t.” – After reading this thread I found that most people think that way.
I think that Envato should start to design better politics for sellers protection and privacy! Most of the authors I did not known their faces, how their home are, their real name, those things starts appearing with the time on forums and envato sites and it is not a good thing for users that does not want to be a celebrity.
