Once upon a time they were automatically displaying a pop-up when we use affiliate links showing their visitors that we are trying to do something very very bad, then they started to automatically remove the affiliate part from the end of our links and now this.
For each SkyNet, we’ll have a John Connor!
One of the reasons is absolutely the absence of the pagination buttons at top of the new search pages. This is very obvious. We should have those pagination buttons at both bottom and top sections of the search pages just like the forum pages. Now we are forcing a big portion of the visitors to buy from the first page of the search results. We need exposure not only for new items, but for old items too. On the net, to see is to click and visibility is everything. If those buttons are not “handy” enough to click, obviously fewer visitors will click on them to visit older results’ pages. This is also a very serious USABILITY mistake considering User Experience. Why to make a user to scroll-down if they are reached on top of the search page again?
Please Envato add those Pagination buttons also at the top section of the search results’ pages.
Hi friends, this may sound a little naive but you should get in contact with Envato support and ask them which “Asset / Photo” is this about. You can also use their Twitter account to get a faster response ; if this not helps, change all of the assets you use in theme with a creative Commons licensed ones and resubmit your item and I am sure that it will be solved immediately.
^ Bedros mate this is common sense. If a theme doesn’t sell at all in an entire year the author should delete it. You don’t want bad items in your portfolio, it shouldn’t be handled by Envato.
I’m all for the cleaning up of old items – the marketplaces is bloated anyway.But as someone said, this is off topic
The point is, the AUTHOR should decide whether they will delete their hardWork or keep their items (which is the current state). We shouldn’t be forced at any time by Envato.
As always, when you start to talk about something, only then it becomes an issue.
And also agree with VF, let’s speak about something else like the absence of pagination buttons on top of the search ; we need them at top for better exposure for the old items and better user experience. This is a must, please friends consider adding those buttons on top section of the search too.
SomethingDesign saidSounds like an aggressive strategy, but honestly if an item has 0 sales for more than 1 year then it should be deleted!! no point in keeping it. However this strategy may no be applicable on certain types of items like photos and audio tracks and maybe logos.
Marketplaces doesn’t need a new search engine. All marketplaces need a major deep items clean-up. Simply if you delete all old and not sellable items will create room and exposure for new and modern items. How many years should pass before you realize this minor changes will not help.
No, and the biggest “no” in the planet. Each item here is a result of hardwork in some sort of way, and we must not forced to delete any of the items, in any period of time. Especially in a marketplace that a single author is uploading 4 items in the SAME day with the exactly SAME design and nobody notices it. What you’re proposing is simply unacceptable.
Even if an item sells only one time in a period of not 1 but 2 years, who can say that the author of the item doesn’t need that $2 dollar or $20 (or whatever)? The count of the items you have is still important in a degree even if you have the best search system in the whole universe.
And yes, we still need each single one of that pennies even if they only come once in a 2 year period.
Just letting you know, also checked with Firefox latest and IE 11 and everything seems fine there too.
