I’ve noticed a massive increase in spam accounts/posts over the past 3 or 4 months and it’s really starting to bother me (and i’m sure others as well). It seems that every time I hit the forums, there’s a new bogus thread about some lame-ass product or gimmick (usually in god-awful english might I add). I’m just wondering how Envato handles these accounts. Are they deleted, banned, warned, etc? What actions are being taken to reduce/prevent such forum pollution?Is it even POSSIBLE to prevent such things?
It seems the problem stems from Envatos willingness to let anyone and everyone join the community. This topic may be worthy of a new thread, but might Envato start thinking about implementing some sort of screening system or authentication process for new authors BEFORE they are allowed to roam ( and in this case corrupt) the forums freely. I’m just spitballing here, but it genuinely comes from my concerns about our forums integrity. The spam is troublesome, distracting, and overall unprofessional. Lets put our heads together and come up with a fix, shall we?
+1 What a bright idea! It would certainly help cut down the chance of purchasing the wrong file.

Good luck in the search!
I’ve been wondering a lot lately about what the future hold for the 1000’s of buried files from years ago. Do you think there are plans in the works to clean up /thin out AJ? How would that effect sales for new artists? Would other libraries then come into the mix? Envato has definitely made some cool/interesting changes recently, but i’m still waiting for something that turns the market upside down (for the better that is).
Envato is an ever-hungry monster, just like the client base it serves. There will always be a demand for jingles, most likely the highest from the corporate realm, but music music culture changes so fast and that’s what I think people should pay more attention to. What people consider a “corporate sound” today, could change drastically in 3 or 4 years. So I say if you listen, pay attention, and write accordingly, you’ll continue to thrive on the market place. Just my two cents
Well I use Protools exclusively as work, but just started using Cubase again at home for music production. I gotta say tho, as powerful as Cubase is, nothing beats the speed and simplicity of Protools. I wish I could have a cross between the two!
Hmm, that’s actually a pretty interesting idea… although i’m sure AJ likes how right now their featured picks are directly linked to top-quality/sale-ability. And i’m also pretty sure shoppers know this..
There wouldn’t be much stopping a potential buyer from disregarding a randomly featured file, especially once they KNOW it’s randomly selected (aka nothing special). Based on this alone, it would probably be a pointless move on AJ’s part (financially anyway), however I does have potential as far as author crowd-pleasing goes haha.
Over all, yeah I think it would be a neat experiment. Something new at least. +1 to a “Random Features” section on the front page
