Collis, I think the main thing to focus on would be to allow the browse files section to be sorted by, rank, popularity, downloads, date, author. And also focus on featured files/authors.
Having all of the high rated files, or most downloaded files up top could help produce sales for some of the older, yet still great files. It may make it hard for smaller new files to be sold because people will sort of be filtering that stuff to the back, but it will, like said before, force people to up the ante.
Also since you guys have tags on all of the items, maybe a search cloud could help. Where users can pick the cloud link near the search box and a page would come up with the most popular searches in the cloud and the font is sized based on how popular the search it. Again this is a small change but could help people find their files faster. Sometimes I want to look for something but I cant think of a search that would produce that file other than pretty much typing it in directly.
um I got two sales, when normally I get 0-1! So I guess thats at least a 50% increase…
Ya I think your good with the link sola, if my site was live I would absolutely have a link in my sig!
I dont think sola did anything bad…I have never been to a forum, that didnt allow signatures, and inside those signatures are usually links to peoples pages…links to their files on deviant art, links to products they might be selling. It may be self promotion but its very normal to be in the sig of the forum post and I’m cool with it.
Not sure, are you a registered author.
Are there tutorials for it yet? How are you learning to use it? Do you have any links?
I noticed you are taking advantage of the custom chrome and the transparency. Hows that working out? Does it noticeably affect performance?
Great work Wes!!!!! I havent yet installed your AIR , but I will when I get the runtime on my machine…could you post a screenshot of the interface? I’m curious to see what you made it look like and how it looks running on the OS!
good stuff! Congrats!!!!!
