I believe I read somewhere that flash den reviews a file every year and determines whether it should still be up, or whether price should be adjusted, etc. That could have something to do with it as well. Does anyone know if that is correct, or if I am thinking of some other site?
There is no predefined time, but yes, periodically they do.
two very easy ways fd could help authors out:The newsletter isn’t dead. In fact, the one for February is being put together as we speak.
1) put the featured tab as the default (where the blog is)2) start sending newsletters out again, i can`t believe the don`t do this anymore, they are losing so much money not doing this.
ok here is a question… these people who are buying these files of ours and uploading them to link not removed because it wasn’t there … are they actually doing anything illegal…? I am totally against it, I am just asking…Yes. Also, thanks for not using a link!
The reason why I started this thread is not to go over this again, but to give answers to the other threads and peoples questions. If we decide what to do here, we wont have to go over it again. So, anyone from staff want to sum up what we as authors could do, and what staff does? This way, everyone will know what is going on. Thanks for everyones attention.I understand that and I am not trying to get on you for starting the thread. I know you are trying to get a solution, not make problems. Thank you and everyone else who is trying to find solutions.
Here is the process(sorry it’s so vague, but it needs to be):When the staff receives a complaint, they investigate, contact the offender, and 99% of the time that takes care of that specific problem. I and other staff members periodically troll the repeat offender’s sites and report anything we find, but most of the reports come from users.
Here is the summary of what we can do: 1) Seek and report any violations. 2) Contact me directly if you have any ideas that may help. 3) When these posts do occur, don’t post links to ANY sites or give ANY indication of how to find them.
Again, don’t think that I am trying to shut you guys down. You are the good guys! This situation just plain sucks and I am sorry for that.
Chuck is right, you don’t need to give support to those who don’t appear to have bought your file. That is why we have systems in place telling you whether or not the person has bought your file.
As far as fighting the problem goes, I promise the staff is just as concerned about it as the authors. Much of the support staff’s time is spent stomping out violations. I hope there is a better solution than just fighting each one on a case by case basis. I am open to and welcome new ideas if you have them. If you do have a potential solution please email it to me instead of starting a new thread. I promise I will study it, take it seriously, and implement it if it will really help the problem. All posting about it where everyone can see does is worsen the problem. I know some of you guys get frustrated that these post keep getting squashed, but I hope you understand the reasoning.
