Cool! Submitted too
Everytime I see this pictures instead of badges I become angry because they are disgusting. Before they came, I had a plan to achieve few new, but now don’t see the point. Now envato will not lose anything if just delete them all. And white background will not fix the state of things.
+1 good idea, we just need mechanism to somehow regulate this. There is no any motivation to upgrade item when you know it still in the market backyard without exposure and with stable low income in a day. So we have quantity over quality, million new identical items, top always on top, most of good items or new authors invisible. Don’t know how technically, but envato definitely must invent scheme where all authors will show old files along with new without monopoly.
