Haha enjoy, Lester! I’ve just been adding them all. So many people joined in this year.
Hi Carmen, I still didn’t got my Mo Badge, and as I understand it, all participating will get the badge. My image: http://codecanyon.net/forums/thread/envato-movember-2013-grow-that-mo/113125?page=23#942754
One month of mustache growth:
I just uploaded a new minor version of the extension which should fix the url issue. Wait for the extension to upgrade (new version is 1.0.12), and refresh the page. If you database is messed up, rebuild it using the settings panel at the bottom right of the dashboard.
For new users, install the extension from Google Webstore, it will automatically update.Let me know if it you still have issues!
This version works for me, thanks!
Thanks, but this still doesn’t answer all my questions. Can you give me more info about IPTC meta data, and especially IPTC-ObjectName?
I would like to try uploading photos to PhotoDune, and I tried to find all relevant information on how to prepare files for upload, but I managed find very little so far. Envato knowledge base is very vague (as usual), and I would appreciate if someone can point to a tutorial describing:
1. Naming convention for files (how to name JPG files that will be uploaded) if there is any? 2. What IPTC meta data should be used, how much information provided? 3. PhotoDune Submission Requirements specifies some IPTC meta elements including this one: IPTC-ObjectName. But, I can’t see this one anywhere and I tried several programs, none of the has this meta value (Photoshop, ACDSee Pro…). 4. Is there a limitation on what types of cameras (dslr, phones, compacts…) can be used?
New version is next to useless so far. Since the update, it worked as advertised only 3 or 4 days (out of 20 or so days in use). Last 4 days it is not working at all, it reports no sales, no changes, nothing. It is not even showing any sales, manual update is not working.
OK, I agree on the comments since that is not available through the API. But, all other data is not that critical to load, and it should be OK loaded directly. Also, I wasn’t aware that iOS can send push notifications from server only.
But, with all that, maybe you should consider version of the plugin that will not depend on the server: no push (I don’t need that really) and not comments notifications, so it can run as standalone.
App looks nice, and it is still very, very buggy, but I expect that will be solved over time.
One thing I can’t understand: why use a server to process the data in the first place? I have used Envato API extensively, and it is not needed for a server to process things users need to get from API. Notifications also can work without server. The only feature (and it is totally useless as far as I am concerned) that needs a storage to compare data that is not connected to each individual user is one showing sales compared to a marketplace. The speed increase is not possible with using extra server: if you request data directly from Envato it must be faster than getting it from a server that still needs to make a call to Envato. It can be faster from your previous app version that was very slow in the first place, but extra server will not make it really faster.
I was OK paying one time for the app, but paying subscription fee because author decided to use a server to process data (for whatever reason) that can be done with the device alone is not something I will going to do.
Thanks for clarification Carmen.
But, this proves that system is really flawed. For instance, WordPress.com decides to buy plugin from CodeCanyon to use on WordPress.com, and since most of the websites on it (and that are individual websites) are using subdomains (under 0.1% uses own domains, approx.), they will be able to pay Single license for a plugin that will be used on over 30.000.000 websites (since that is the number of individual websites, using subdomains).
I understand that there will never be a licensing that can cover all eventualities, but current licenses must change in order to make distinction of different ways products can be used. Let’s hope that licensing improvements are really coming to Envato (and soon).
Well, it looks like one more license ambiguity proving that Envato licenses are not up to the task to cover many uses that are becoming more popular in the recent years. Once again, licensing is put into hands of the authors (extended license and permissions) that need to determine how someone uses their product to see if they should use one or more licenses to do it. And it will cause many more problems to authors and negative ratings by angry users.
It is said many times, but Envato licensing is deeply flawed and warrants many more changes. It has been more than 6 months since I have seen last promise from Envato people about improved licensing, but as all issues important to authors, the work on it is very slow and shows no progress and most importantly no announcements or dates and roadmap of what is done on the issue by Envato.
Great many sales are lost because Envatos slow response to what user/author needs, and I don’t see it changing anytime soon.
