Current upload approval times appear to be very fast (just a few hours, in the case of my last submission). I suspect this is due to many authors holding back files until the new rates take effect next month
Reviewers, brace yourselves for an avalanche of uploads!
Bring it on!
Also take a look at these posts: http://blog.flashden.net/general/reviewer-notes-what-we-look-for-in-a-file-description/ http://blog.flashden.net/general/reviewer-notes-what-we-look-for-in-file-design/ They will be very helpful. Good luck, I look forward to seeing your first file.
If the author has a corporate license, they are allowed to resell it without the end user needing to buy it too.
At leat one reviewer either disagrees with that rule, or is unaware of it. A file that appeared in the list today uses TweenMax (by Greensock) with a download link
Possibly the author has an appropriate license to use it commercially, I’d suggest to contact support for further investigation. Please notice that we do not allow using any tweening class from Greensock unless author puchases their corporated license. It’s used to be free but not anymore
Just out of interest .. even if the Flashden author has a corporate license, allowing him to sell a file which uses GS classes, what about the developers who purchase those files? I would imagine many files on Flashden are bought by developers who use them in their own commercial projects so the ultimate user (the buyer’s client) will end up using GS on their site, without a license. Perhaps, as condition of using GS classes in Flashden authors should clearly state in the file comment that purchasers of their file must buy a GS license if they wish to use that file in a commercial project.
Anyone else with info on this? It’s pretty bad that some reviewers allow TweenLite usage while others don’t!
All of the reviewers follow the same standards so you don’t need to worry about who is reviewing your file. If a file using GreeSock code is uploaded without a corporate license, it will be rejected.
I know it is frustrating, but if a file could possibly be in violation of copyright, we have to take it down at least until the situation is figured out. This is not an assault on anyone’s integrity. This is to protect the author as well as FlashDen. If it turns out to be a misunderstanding, the file gets replaced. Unfortunately we can’t change the policy based on size of portfolio, time as a member, or anything else. That would be unfair to all the other members. The best thing to do is to email support. If there was a mistake, they will take care of it.
