Okie – just my thoughts on this as Community Manager.

  • Moderators are here to keep the forums a welcoming environment FOR ALL . However, I must ask that this personal disrespect towards the people that spend day in day out maintaining these forums (Moderators) stops, right here and right now. This rule is not unique to Envato – please respect Moderator decisions. Some people take take offence to certain words (believe me, I know because I see all of the comment complaints.) So we moderate them within reason. If you feel that something has been moderated unfairly – I ask that you please contact me directly via my profile page and I will unbiasedly look at the situation.
  • More often than not, threads get locked because discussions get super heated and personal (as in flaming begins to occur) and our rules are in place to make sure that this doesn’t happen. The thread which was mentioned previously got locked because of that reason.
  • I’d like to make it clear there are no quotas or anything even remotely similar for our moderation team.
  • Keep in mind your forum presence can be a part of your personal branding. If you’re an author perhaps the image you want to portray on the forums to your buyers is something you should consider.

As cheesy as it sounds guys, we just want as many people here to get along as possible and these are the basis of all of our rules, we don’t want to alienate buyers from asking questions, we don’t want authors to feel their voice isn’t heard – we just don’t – simple as that. If a word gets removed from your post or if anything happens at all that you disagree with or you feel is unjustified I’m asking again that you please contact me directly about your concerns and don’t take it personally or likewise, make it personal.

All of that said, I tend to agree that locking threads should be a last resort, I also tend to agree that you guys should be able to discuss almost anything you want (excluding bullying and other obviously inappropriate behaviour) without fear of retribution and we’ll be overhauling the forum rules in the coming months to reflect these changes and to make our policies and procedures more transparent.

In the meantime (and forever really) I sincerely request that you respect ALL of our hard working moderators and if you feel that something is off please contact me directly.

I really feel that these forums are and continue to be a great place for experienced creatives to get together and share their thoughts, questions & concerns with other like minded people. I really feel a positive environment is more conducive to general happiness around here and really when it comes down to it expanding our community – which as a flow on effects everything (including author earnings). It’s been said before that our community is what makes us special. Let’s keep it that way! :-D

I am Community Manager to try and help improve this place for you guys! So get in touch with me directly if you have any questions or concerns.

Group hug? :P

Loved it guys! Great job on the podcast this time, a lot better than episode 2. According to me anyways :)

Can’t wait for the next episode :D

Ooh! Contgratulations to, Guitarstate! Amazing tune!

Thanks! I think we improved too! And yes guitarsstate tune was da bomb! XD

Next step is to record in a room where my voice isn’t muffled. Also sorry Drew for saying you weren’t wearing headphones. I know you’re smarter than that, except that you believed we milked kangaroos for their delicious milk to make chocolate. :P

On iTunes, I only see 2 Envato Podcasts. Hasn’t the third one been uploaded yet?

The third one is there, but iTunes takes a little bit (max 24 hours) to update their indexes. If you subscribe and manually update (or check for new episodes) you should be able to get the new episode :-)

I’m using an external mic – the Blue Snowball – exact same as the one Drew uses! It definitely sounds a bit muffled though and I think it either has something to do with the room I’m recording in or maybe Drew isn’t using headphones when we’re recording? I dunno. Is that why you ask?

Yeah it is. It’s a great microphone too, I use it for recording aswell. It’s not too much of a problem really as we can still hear what you’re saying, just as you said it’s a bit muffled.

:)

I know! It’s totally getting to me! Next episode I’ll try recording in a different room and see if that makes a difference. Aim for episode 4 is to remove the muffle! :-D

P.S. @Ivor LOLOLOLOL

Awseome, I just caught up on episode 2 on this morning’s bus ride.

I love the new Podcast tunes, they’re so much more awesome.

I’ve got something for tommorow, downloading and syncing it to my ipod!

Quick Q for you Jordan, when recording are you using an external or internal mic?

I’m using an external mic – the Blue Snowball – exact same as the one Drew uses! It definitely sounds a bit muffled though and I think it either has something to do with the room I’m recording in or maybe Drew isn’t using headphones when we’re recording? I dunno. Is that why you ask?

Hey everybody!

We just wanted to share the news with you that we’ve just crossed the 50,000 file mark across the Marketplaces! That’s a whole lotta files :-D

Congratulations and thank you to all of the authors, buyers, reviewers and staff that have helped to build this community into what it is today. Without all of your unique talent and contributions I have no doubt we would not be where we are today.

Everyone, this is an amazing milestone for the Marketplaces and I couldn’t be happier to be a part of this community. Bring on 100,000 files, then 1,000,000 then… THE WORLD ! MWAHAHAHA. :nerdy:
