Aaaand the 100% commission is gone… I was kind of hoping that for the rest of the week it would be 70% for everyone (like last year)... looking at my current rate I guess not… this birthday’s one-day 100% commission ended up mainly benefiting elites.

+1 for designova’s take on the badges…

On that note, if the new badges are a gift to the envato community, why not have us get involved in the decision or vote process, before actually implementing new stuff? That way everyone can have their say about potential designs and thus the final design will actually be something FOR the community…

Now that I’ve slept on it, I share many of the negative opinions everyone has regarding these new badges… And I was just reading http://marketblog.envato.com/news/redesigning-envato-market-badges/ and it says somewhere that the deadline to create them was 2 weeks? I’m not a graphic designer but that sounds a bit rushed…

Here’s the official badges page: http://themeforest.net/community/badges

There’s also a short survey to give feedback on them.

Woah, these badges are almost as big as my avatar. 1 day 100% commission sounds fun, but a one week 75% would also be cool because, you know, not everyone is elite. Happy birthday envato!

I don’t think it’s a bug, just a mistake that strangely has also happened before.

@facade

I understood and don’t get me wrong, I don’t oppose a different market just for footage/motion-graphics… it’s just that it seems that every time this topic of separating templates from footage comes up the main reason is “footage occupies too much space”, which is nonsense as I tried to explain on the previous reply.

And above all, I’d rather have envato spend their time and resources coming up with better search/filters, shopping cart and all those other features everyone wants and are actually needed…

“VIP/Platinum Projects” sounds like the current Featured Items section, even though there are some strange choices there lately…

But then again isn’t it all a bit subjective, even the templates linked on that first post? Even if there was a “VIP/Platinum Projects” separate page, it would also require someone to curate items for it… which in the end would most likely be picks from the “Popular Items” page, mixed with other items based personal opinion of the curator, mixed with some of those very high priced items that sometimes appear.

@facade “This would help a bit with exposure so people looking for templates don’t have to dig through stock footage and vice versa.”

I don’t understand this fear template authors feel that motion graphics and stock footage might be “bloating” videohive and reduce exposure of AE templates…

It’s a strange choice of words, “dig through”... If you know you need a template, when you enter the main videohive page you have right in your face links to each category, which means a single click of the mouse button takes you DIRECTLY to a page showing the most recent AfterEffects templates, complete with clear price and attributes. One click! Where exactly do you have to dig through?
