Yeah that would be great to have this but who will judge the issues? I don’t believe Envato be able to do this because once this system starts working, they should have hundreds of request per day… Unfortunately, I guess it’s not possible to do this
A mandatory explanation of a low rate (1 and 2 stars) would be enough. If the explanation is tenuous then the author could ask for a removal. The worst thing about this rating system is that votes are anonymous, so authors can’t neither contact the users to ask what they didn’t like about the product.
This is nice, just happened to me. A user of mine reported me a problem with a plugin I sell. As I can’t replicate the problem he offered to send me credentials of his WordPress so I could see what’s wrong. The password he sent me starts with: GoFuckYourself
I don’t know what to do, I’d refuse any further help but I know he would rate 1 star for my plugin so… probably I’m going to work for someone who can tell me to fuck myself.
Makes sense to me. If I’m looking to buy something then I’ll pop whatever I’m after in the search box and then sort by sales. I don’t have time to look at every result, so my reasoning is that if it’s got loads of sales then it’s going to be of a decent quality. But then I’m missing out on recent stuff that could be amazing, but hasn’t had enough sales to be up there in the listings. I.e. some footage of a cat in a suit of armour with 1000 sales over two years is going to be much higher up in the list than a similar clip that’s had 100 sales, but over just a month.
That’s exactly why it wuold be useful… thanks for the good resuming.
I agree nice comment There is the popular files page for that,
Yes, except that it’s not what I proposed. Popular files are the most sold items, not the most performing. Don’t you see the difference?
no need to complicate things
As someone said about the wheel 10.000 years ago….
I think it would be nice to sort the items based also on their performance, calculated by: sells/days (since publish date)
What do you think about it?
Last news, what happened to me today: I noticed a downgrade of the rating of a plugin of mine just after a purchase. After few minutes I got this comment: “Lovely, I wasted 14$ and 2 hours of my life”.
I removed the comment reporting it to the staff. With such empty words like those I don’t even want to know why the customer was disappointed, he/she hasn’t been constructive, he/she never asked for support, nothing.
So I ask to Envato staff: how much does it worth a rating of such kind of customer?? It’s clear that customer gave me 1 star (I guess you can check it) and this is the proof that some customer doesn’t even care to ask the author for an enlightment about possible problems, doubts… they just give 1 star and write offensive comments.
Do you think it’s fair they condition the sells of an author?
I see, I see… much clearer now, thanks.
Maybe I found the FAQ about my question:http://codecanyon.net/licenses/faq#faq-section-author
Can I purchase an item to use as a small element within a larger project that I plan to sell as stock or a template? For example, could I purchase a button graphic for a theme I plan to sell?
Use of items in larger stock projects is not allowed under the default regular or extended licenses, but there are exceptions.
Example: A CodeCanyon author has a slider and states in the item description that any buyer is permitted under the extended license to use this item in a larger stock item that will be sold.
Example: A CodeCanyon author has a slider and gives permission by email to a ThemeForest author to use the slider, under the extended license, in a theme.
But still I don’t understand why the extended version is offered in codecanyon where we MUST provide source code and I wonder what someone is doing with my plugin after purchasing the extended license….
