Nope. What Rayzong said isn’t allowed otherwise people would just keep uploading, deleting and reuploading their items to gain maximum exposure off frontpage.
I think he means remove it in order to upload a massively improved version of it – not just re-upload (as yes, that could cause a few problems!).
I don’t have a massive portfolio but I do have some 2 year+ old items but they still sell – now and then – but a sale is a sale and I don’t feel that it hurts anyone. I do, however, put links in descriptions pointing at newer similar items I have for sale to help a buyer.
I’m proud of my work
If you do remove something old in order to improve it be wary of the current standards as an older file might not meet them at all any more (or be rejected due to being in a saturated category and no-longer unique). You would be miffed if that happened!
Gotta admit… it has gone a little quiet. Is it a holiday somewhere?
Sorry, I’m slightly confused. Do I just request the change in the notes to the review section. As I can’t see a field for changing the heading in the edit item area. Or am I just being blind?Thanks!
You will need to contact support to change the title of an item.
Don’t forget you’re up against fierce competition in this category – reviewers are going to be looking for something ground breaking.
I’m sure quite a few of you use Dropbox to move and store files but if you haven’t heard of it it’s damn handy.
Rather than carry a harddrive or memory stick around with me I tend to use Dropbox to sync files between work and home (and between the iMac and MacBook) which saves quite a bit of time copyin’ n’ pastin’ (and checking dates!) and means I can get my files from anywhere.
They give you about 3gb to use which can be upgraded and you can also share files with each other easily buy uploading things to public folders (or private authorised folders between users).
It’s also handy for storing your own GR files for access to use (and backup).
Worth checking out! Dropbox (? link gets you 250mb extra)
At this rate it’s going to need it’s own forum too.
I’m into it already. I have loads of bits-n-pieces of design work that is going to be perfect for this kind of site (and my blog, which I am working on).
Absolutely love the concept of PixelPoints too!
I had the same message back after my item was held for a while. It wasn’t a flyer but a set of web menus I use quite often in my own work… unfortunately rejected on the grounds of not being unique enough in a very popular area.
Yeah, I was annoyed, but I understand the reason behind the rejection. They are not vey unique or special but they are made very well compared to the competition… maybe that was missed during review… I don’t know.
I think we are all going to find soon that breaking into popular categories is going to be difficult. Ironically being unique can mean less sales and being the same as everyone else means more… sounds unbalanced, right?
