Nawww thanks you guys!

Thanks in particular to @SamBerson for making me do it :)

I’m not a fan of talking myself up normally!

Inspiration to build amazing things? After $5 milion you get a MacBook ? :O I think that someone who earned $5 milion has already a MacBook if they want one… I liked the previous rewards better. I am glad I have passed the $500k mark just few days before the new rewards were anounced.

P.S The website look very good ;)

Ah but it’s not just ANY Macbook – the stock Apple log will be replaced with an Envato one. So it will be an Envato branded MacBook! I haven’t decided on which one yet, I though Air for portability, maybe MBP for max grunt, but trust me this will be SPECIAL :)

For the record that comment wasn’t from me.. it was from mpc – see previous page. Please don’t quote me on things I didn’t type ;)

Right you are! I have updated now, my apologies (so many blockquotes – le sigh) ;)

Also, just a side note, if you make $5M, you can pretty much get anything you can dream up, so I am trying to make the rewards, based on much feedback and survey response, stuff that you wouldn’t go out and buy yourself or that provide that ‘money can’t buy experience’.

It’s a balancing act, but I appreciate all of your feedback and look forward to working with every one of you on scoping out new rewards next time around :D

Hey Dan,

I think you guys could have done better for the $ 5 Million milestone award… not everyone is a Mac fan :) + I think that any author who reaches $5M in sales has already a Mac/PC so you should at least give a variety of unique choices, something more like:

A: Envato branded Scooter

B: Envato branded Google Glass

C. Envato branded Armani suit (you can call it Envarmani) :)

Cheers

UOU

You can’t win them all I guess! I tried very hard and scoped far and wide to come up with these rewards, sorry they don’t tick everyones boxes :(

I’m a few hundred dollars from the $125k mark. Can you swap the $250 Envato Studio credit for a year of TutsPlus ($180)?

Sorry, none of the rewards are transferrable or redeemable for cash.

You already received a tuts+ membership for reaching $75k :)

I see the retroactive thing! Does that mean we get the 250$ for the Envato Studio as well?

No it means the opposite sorry pal! We are retroactively applying the existing rewards up until Sept 1 when the new rewards kick in.

I will do a general update to clarify this as I think I made it sound more confusing than it is!

On a sidenote.. what does Dropbox think of you using their logo for the 75K care package? Or is it subliminal advertising? ;)

Um… err… .it’s a box :)

Maybe I missed this, but are the new perks of milestones that we’ve already passed available to us? For instance, those of us already past $125,000, will we be able to receive the $250 Envato Studio credit? I assume not, but I figured I’d ask.

Sorry @designcrumbs but that’s the only downer here, I can’t go backwards and apply all the new rewards to the almost 800 authors that have already achieved each level.

And the new rewards kick in from Sept 1.
