He was a non-exlusive author, so I guess all this mess that came up recently made him understand it was not worth to work with Envato anymore, also because he still has his portfolio available on all the other websites…making 100k sales and getting 33% it’s an insult so I kinda understand him.
I’ve heard that you could ask support to soft disable your items, in that way they are still online but not available for purchasing
A badge to recognize if an author produces AE templates, stock footage, motion graphic or C4D items !
I’d suggest a badge like: Portfolio sold x amount of times and something like a Breaktrough Item: an item that made history in the marketplace or an item who sold 5 times the average of the other files of the portfolio.
what actually pi** me off is that now you can buy a license that allow you to produce an unlimited number of end products for an unlimited number of clients, so that means that a client is going to buy a clip with a multi use license and basically never come back to buy it again, and especially, they can sell it as many times as they want ( as long as it’s not made to order).
28 bucks are now enough to buy a clip and post it on facebook, youtube, broadcasting it on tv, cinema, then you can sell it as many times as you want to unlimited clients then what else??
Where’s my dignity gone Envato, tell me?
This is the reason of the price change in case you guys missed it:http://marketblog.envato.com/releases/brand-new-video-media-sfx-licensing-coming-soon/
I have to say, I don’t like it at all.
Dear Envato Staff,
I was wondering if there is any way to put my portfolio offline for a certain period of time?
Since we are left with no time to handle those VAT new regulations, I think that disabling our files while the VAT situation is properly sorted is a good idea for us authors and you Envato. I don’t really want to delete my files and leave this marketplace, and I’m sure you Envato don’t want to see us deleting our portfolios, it’s bad for us and it’s bad for you. Just give us at least a chance to stay, turn off our exclusivity and have a look somewhere else while ouf files are still stored in here.
Just make a ONLINE/OFFLINE button, I don’t really want to write to reviewers once for each of my items!
This is getting ridicolous, the price in the statement is not the price of the item I see in my portfolio, they are seriously trying to make us believe we owe fees to Envato when our earnings are just a % of the item price aka a commission! Envato, stop brainwashing the authors and take your responsabilities please.
Is there a way to disable my portfolio from being online or should I start thinking to remove the files compleatly?
Has the new statement page got something to do with new VAT changes?
As soon as I opened up the page this morning I got a tan on my face! Jeez that’s too bright I have to wear sunglasses from now on to browse Videohive! I don’t get how a multi million dollars company is making things worse rather than improving them! I mean, from the redesign to the badges, now the white bg and font, mandatory support, new policies, authors became sellers what’s next?
