Question: Review time is unrelated to the deadline, right? I mean, if I submit a track for this competition on the 19th of February, I assume I’m still in the green even if it takes 3-4 days to review?
Yep, eligibility is based on the upload date of the submission leading to final approval. If review queues are a bit longer, no worries. Of course it’s always best to get it in as early as possible in case you run into any issues!
I’m sorry I don’t understand a point:
tracks must have vocals or both with vocals and instrumental are accepted?Thank you guys!
Vocals are not required. However if you do use vocals, you must include an instrumental version as well in order to be eligible.
PMI-Studio saidYeah!! I just uploaded a good Latin track in December! Am I allow to participate?????
Hi, what should I do if I have already composed Spanish piece and it is on my AudioJubgle profile? Shall I upload it once more…? http://audiojungle.net/item/spanish-impression/4539338?WT.oss_phrase=spanish%20impression&WT.oss_rank=1&WT.z_author=PMI-Studio&WT.ac=search_list
Sorry guys, as usual this Most Wanted event is only for newly submitted items. Deleting/resubmitting items is not permitted. Plenty of time to get inspired and create something fresh!
templatin said@EricSchwartz – I noticed that you’re active in this thread from last few days and hope you will answer my question which I’m asking for the third time in this thread.
templatin saidThe multi-purpose trend has popped in this eCommerce category as well.
@EricSchwartz – I hope the rule will apply to all eCommerce category themes as well and not only Wordpress category.
So, can anyone please confirm if this news will apply to all eCommerce category themes?
We’re looking at multi-purpose items as a whole across the marketplace, but the initial steps here are focused primarily on WordPress items. However in general similar principles would apply. If you have any specific concerns let me know the details directly and I can raise them with the team.
jonathan01 saidCorrect… Can you give us an explanation for this @EricSchwartz ?
As Cubell correctly states the advertising of $500 of plugins for free is actually false advertising. You do not gain the same ‘product’ by a plugin being bundled with a theme as you do not gain a license for that item which is essentially what you are buying with a digital product.
So to provide some additional context, the underlying principle here is that consumer protection laws in a number of jurisdictions (including Australian Consumer Law) require sellers to make sure all statements intended to promote or encourage the sale of their products are true, accurate and able to be substantiated.
In our view, this claim of “added value” is not a case of clear false advertising, and could be generally substantiated in that:
- Simply saying a buyer saves $X compared to having to buy a plugin/script separately is true where the plugin/script would otherwise need to be purchased at that price (or could otherwise be valued at that price based on comparable products) for a similar use.
- The buyer is licensed to use the plugin/script within the scope of the overall item license they purchase—e.g. they can use the plugin as intended alongside of the theme within a single end product (single website). If the author maintains good working condition of the item and all included components as expected, the buyer essentially gets an equivalent use/value out of that plugin/script.
Please note there will always be some subjectivity to interpretation here. In the case that a claim is not clearly false or misleading, it is ultimately for authors to make the call on how they choose to represent their items, keeping in mind that false or unsubstantiated claims could potentially expose them to liability under applicable consumer protection laws.
That being said, as we highlighted in our proposed “next steps” we do recognize that there is a need for establishing better clarity and more formal guidelines for authors and buyers around included plugins (e.g. what you get, don’t get, responsibilities, etc.) as well as related security and licensing concerns, which we are working to provide in the near future.
Most Wanted [....] Over $350K in total prizes and earnings so far.This is just a fancy number without any real value. When you submit a theme for an event you get maximum $250 to 500.. You know how much it takes to create a theme? At least one month considering that you’re a great designer and already have a quality framework.. The prizes of the most wanted events are really really low considering what you have to do for a theme – so saying that you offered over $350K in prizes means nothing..
We very much realize and appreciate the effort it takes to create a great theme, which is why we typically open up our Most Wanted events on ThemeForest for 8-12 weeks. Our Microniche Theme Most Wanted for example ran for over 2 months, with a grand prize of $3,000 cash.
But really, the prizes we give away here are meant to be the icing on the cake. The real value and true winners are those authors that recognize the underlying buyer demand we’re trying to fill and create a great new item that meets the needs of the market. What the numbers we put forward in the article mean for Microniche themes, if you do a little extra math, is that the top submissions for that event alone have already gone on to earn over $35,000+ on average in sales in just a few months, which I think we can all agree is the best kind of reward really, and certainly seems worth the effort for a single theme.
Safe to say there is plenty of opportunity and success in creating niche themes that do one thing really well. Also if you want to read a bit more about why we run events like these and how to get involved, check out this article.
