Agreed. Thanks for the support. I was hoping that I wasn’t being too picky.
Love envato & been a member for a while. Lots of purchases.
The problem is that when I follow an author, my profile only shows like the latest 9 people I’m following and the others vanish.
I wish there was a way to have a favorites list or a full list so I could see them all in one place. Bookmarking is extremely useful but having the follow feature not limit the number of authors would be great, especially with all the different marketplaces.
Hi, I clicked the links in the post below but none are working. Would love to check it out!

We’re looking to add at least one freelance designer/coder to our team to provide landing page designs for our clients.
Landing pages will feature a video focused home page with video player (self hosted – not YouTube), capture form and text area; and a 2nd “thanks page” that features a slider and text.
Tasks include design & layout as well as html & css coding. Html should all be tableless of course. Any jquery (js files) should be configured in an organized fashion so changes on our end are simple.
Final pages must all be cross browser compatible.
What we expect:
We’re looking for skilled, talented & creative individuals who provide professional-grade, quality service with quick turn-arounds and can be depended on to deliver consistently. Timely communication and availability through Skype or Yahoo IM is a must.
You will find we are very easy to work with and that once we find a vendor we like, we tend to stick with them for years and bring them many projects.
The more skills you have the better as we are rapidly expanding and have many projects on-going both complex-large and simple. We also work heavily with video so any skills in this area are a major plus.
Please contact me at toli [at] intouchmarketing [dot] us if interested. I can supply more specific details and project examples at that time.
I have some customizations I need to get done rather quickly and the authors have not gotten back to me.
If anyone out there is looking for some work, please contact me through my profile email asap.
I posted this some time ago – hope it helps:
Basically the more info about the item the better. Especially things like availability of music, sfx and how easy it is to extend or shorten the item.
I especially like when the artist is clearly responsive to comments in a timely fashion. If I like something & have a question, I’ll check to see how long it takes the artist to respond before buying.
This place needs like a page dedicated to totally free assets that can be used in projects for sale. I’m in progress of learning illustrator though. That should help.
@Stacey. I don’t know if you know this already, but free assets already exist.
Click on ‘my account’ – that’s your account, not my account!
Then look for author resources on the right hand side of the page, near the bottom. There you will find the link to the free assets page.-felt.
This sounds great because I’m trying to buy a template with music from those assets but there is no such link in My Account for me because I’m not an author.
Hi, I LOVE VH & Envato and make a lot of purchases. So I thought it would be a good idea to start a thread to give buyers a place to post what they look for when purchasing.
This will help authors create & provide what’s needed and also help us buyers get more of what we need. And of course, if the authors are providing what we buyers need, THEY will get more SALES .
PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE reply to this thread with what you as a buyer look for, need and expect when you’re deciding on a purchase.
I’ve posted what I need & look for below as both info and an example.
Here’s what I look for when purchasing Project Files – not necessarily in order of priority:
1. Is the project COMPLETE – meaning: how much work will I have to do to make the project work. Examples: Is the ending a real ending or does it just cut off and I’ll have to add an ending.
Can I extend or shorten the project? If this info is not provided it doesn’t help.
Is there a tutorial? Generally I don’t need this but it can help and at least shows the author’s care to make sure the project can be used easily.
2. How much info does the author give about what’s in the project, what’s included, what’s not, how easy is it, fonts, etc.
In other words: does the author answer the question – “what’s it going to take to make sure this project looks like the preview?” – If that’s not clear, I don’t buy.
3. Sound, sound, sound: I generally lean to projects where the music is either included or available for purchase on audio jungle. I don’t have time to chase down authors for music info.
Also, if there are sound effects and it’s not noted if they’re included, I’m MUCH less likely to buy.
I really don’t like when an author uses an audio jungle track & doesn’t give the music author credit. After all, they’re using that song to promote their project & sell it. It’s just not fair.
I’ve purchased many AJ songs where the info was given in the description as a result of the author giving proper credit UP FRONT where it belongs.
If there is no info on the audio, I usually won’t buy.
4. Discussion page – I check the discussion page to see how responsive the author is regarding questions on the project or comments in general.
How long does it take the author to post answers? If it’s more than a day or two, I stay away unless the project is truly great & everything I need is included (as noted in the description).
I also look at how recent the last comments were but this is not necessarily an indication since the project could have been online for a while and may just not have been seen a lot lately.
5. Ratings – I do look at ratings, especially for the specific project. It’s not a huge criteria particularly since new projects are often not rated but are still great.
6. Category – it’s helpful when projects and other files are really in the right category. I can’t tell you how many times I’ve found great files in the wrong category. Titles & openers with video displays in the titles & openers category is an example. Can authors place in more than one category? I don’t know. But it seems advisable since many projects and other content fit more than one.
7. Files other than projects – for motion graphics & footage it’s of course “how does it look”. For the rest, all of the criteria above applies.
That’s all I can think of for now. Hope this helps all & happy posting!
