Congrats is beautiful.
Sure, when they’re kept in one place, like this http://audiojungle.net/forums/thread/yaythread/77816
the buyer is fully justified to rate whatever he/she pleases
Hope you will keep this state of mind when you’ll get 1 star rating.
“harass them into giving you 5 stars”
Never have I asked for a higher rating. All I wanted was knowing the motifs.
” is fully justified to rate your item 1 star “
Correct me if I’m wrong, but the rating system should reflect items quality and not serve as an outlet for one’s grudge and ill will.
It’s a common sense that all commercial projects would require the extended license. Commercial project defined as “intended for or directed toward commercial advantage or payment of any monetary compensation”.
If we weren’t supposed to contact our buyers Envato would not provide us a link then. I am positive that my message was legit.
Before judging what is acceptable you should know the whole story.
It was me, but my message wasn’t abusive. The buyer gave a 4 stars rating with reason “Item quality”, so I wrote him that the item has a preview so you know exactly what you get, therefore If the item quality is not good enough for you, why do you buy it instead looking for something you’re completely satisfied with? I always was puzzled by why people rate images and audio tracks less then 5 stars, so when finally I had a chance to ask a buyer I did it – what’s wrong about that? The buyer replied that giving 5 stars would mean that it is perfect and nothing is perfect. So I said that I pity such attitude and rating something that has a preview file less than 5 stars is foolish, because what he rates here is nothing but his choice and advised him leaving the rating blank if he finds difficult being positive and supportive. As a response the buyer rated the item with 1 star. If this is not the abuse of the rating system I don’t know what it is, and he’s reporting me for abuse?!
The formula is simple: Project for sale = extended license. Project available to the public at no charge = regular license. In the example I posted in the Broadcast licenses thread there’s a separate license for viral videos. Would Envato implement it? – You wish.
Unfortunately these samples can’t be used in stock music production because of the SA clause in the CC license.
I’d also suggest eliminating the $10 and $13 price entirely
That’s right, except devaluing our work these prices are not good for anything. The prices here are very low already, so when a buyer finds the right track another 4 or 7 bucks is not what’s gonna stop him.
In general you can, but it has to be substantially different. Personal advice – make sure the remixes don’t start the same. Once I had two variations with similar beginning and someone without taking a thorough listen snitched to the support that I sell exclusive items on other sites.
