This is just a general comment from the 2.5 years or so I’ve been trading here and 5 years as a member, but I think it would be particularly motivating and a sign of respect if there was some kind of loyalty scheme in place at Envato for authours that stay here for extended periods of time. I’ve lost quite a bit of ‘oomph’ over the last year or so with AJ because of things feeling pretty static despite my efforts to kickstart my geriatric A-game.
I know there’s an incentive with the earnings percentage which rises with the amount you’ve sold for exclusive members, but as a non-exclusive member who has ‘weathered many storms’ here, there’s not too much going on for us other than a badge showing how ancient we are. Oh, there was that community superstar badge I was given that was drawn in disappearing ink, but as much as a badge is great, it’s not really helping pay the bills.
As staff read all forums posts (I’m told), it would be great if you would pass this on to Collis and get him to add me to the ‘affluent authour group’ as I’m one of the old guys and we also need some loving (as well as having our adult nappies changed, dribbly chin wiped and being fed mushy food).
Yeah man. We also need some loving!
