I’m surprised there aren’t any “cool work!” type comments on this one haha.

Sales have been awful since this was implemented, I’m hoping it’s a coincidence. Love the new search features!

Look at my newest project. I had “Envato Market” written underneath the logo with a 3rd party font originally, but got rejected for it.

I would just like to clarify that I have no problem with what the reviewers say to soft reject my files. They’re just doing their jobs, and they’re doing good work! The problem is there is no official list of standards.

Hey everyone!

My main reason for posting this is to ask why there isn’t a list of standards for Videohive authors.

By standards I mean requirements and conditions that certain parts of your submitted projects have to meet in order to be approved for sale (not soft rejected). Obviously there are the “doesn’t meet our quality standards” type of conditions, and we all know what those are. But what about the smaller things that will cause your item to be soft rejected.

For example, I have been rejected for the following: not clearing my render queue, video tutorial in wrong format, adding “Envato Market” with a alternate font under Envato logo, video assets in wrong format, etc.

I wish I could say that I could remember to address each of these possible issues each time I submit a project, but it’s difficult to do so without an official list of rules. And yes I could make my own list based on my experiences, but that wouldn’t include all reasons to soft reject.

I have no problem with any of these policies, but it bothers me that the only way to learn these rules is to make a mistake. I’m sure there are many other ‘secret’ rules that I wouldn’t even think of now, and the only way I’ll acknowledge them, is to violate them.

If a staff member were to create a list of things to check for in your project before it’s reviewed, it would save SO much time on both ends. Reviewers would spend less time reviewing soft rejected items and writing out specific reasons explaining the soft rejection. On the other end, authors will spend less time fixing their projects because they should already know how to avoid soft rejection the vast majority of the time. Creating this sort of list would only take a small chunk of time compared to the amount of time saved by doing so.

What do you think?

All the best, Graham

Not bad. Yeah it needs improvement but it’s much better than most of the stuff I see on this forum.

This isn’t a very unique project, it doesn’t bring much too the table which is your biggest problem here. It’s also not very interesting to watch, there’s no reason to include that much text if the viewer can’t even read it all. It’s pretty repetitive as well, which doesn’t make it stand out at all.

I took a look at your GraphicRiver portfolio, and clearly you’re a great designer! This is evident in this file, you just need to add a little more to make it special.

I’m going to second Visual_A’s nomination. This is one of my favorites.

Looks good to me! The only thing I would suggest is taking out that cartoony splash at the end of the reveal, it doesn’t really match up with the rest of the reveal.

So we’re only linking to the Videohive item? Or are we supposed to include the Audiojungle link as well?
