Most of it will be paid for by Videohive earnings

Isn’t it’s her parents who pays for the wedding in UK?

Congratulations! I got married 6 years ago and they’ve been the best 6 years in my life. Wish you the same.

Her folks are paying for the honeymoon (which coincidentally costs more) :)

Me and the Missus went around South East Asia for three months and it was AWESOME!!! Cambodia was absolutely incredible if a little wet. When it rains it really rains!

We got abandoned in the middle of nowhere at one point when our coach broke down but were rescued by the UN. (Well we hitched a ride with a passing UN truck). Not quite sure what we would have done had they not gone past.

http://vimeo.com/34926883 This is just one of the videos we recorded whilst on the trip, the whole trip can be seen here https://vimeo.com/channels/harinezumingmylife and has some videos of our time when we lived in Tunisia. That was also fun, especially when the Arab Spring kicked off (yes we were living in Tunis at that point).

I remember one night in particular which we spent under our table with all the doors locked, windows and shutters bolted, gunfire and helicopters were all around and all we had in the fridge was a packet of ham and two bottles of champagne we were saving for New Years. We got pretty hammered that night.

Fun times! But in the wise words of my father…

”...have a good time or a bad time, but never a boring time.”

Is always 6 to 7 days

I had an item approved in 3 hours about 6 months ago and prior to that it used to be closer to the 2 – 3 day mark. Is 6 – 7 normal now then?

...if authors would refrain from making mistakes, the reviewers could review more files much quicker! ;)

I don’t leave them in on purpose. They just find a way of sneaking in during the upload process. I blame google chrome.

In fact looking at themewaves logo, that if it was angled so the three lines pointed vertically from the bottom would be perfect (not inciting plagiarism at all here).

You have the suggestion of a globe with the circle, the suggestion of a hand smacking it and the three prongs make a W (web smacker).

Again, not inciting plagiarism but there are clever ways of portraying your brand without stating the obvious.

Oh and btw @themewaves, I really like your logo!

The facebook logo includes neither a face nor a book, Flickr doesn’t use a camera and most web companies have now moved away from using cliche images such as globes and cursors etc.

The most important thing is that it is easy to read and nice to look at. Any emphasis on purpose should be clever and/or subtle. I was a big fan of the flickr circle that used to be used for iphone apps as it suggested a camera without being too obvious. Twitter is a very simple bird icon that would be instantly recognisable because of it’s simplicity.

As my lecturer used to say to me…

“Oh good, you’re getting all the bad ideas out early, good idea!”

I hated that guy, but I quickly began to appreciate what he had to teach.

I’m getting a little edgy, I go on holiday for three weeks very soon and I need to make sure this is all approved and any reasons for rejection are sorted.

Is this just down to a staff shortage or a huuuuuuge influx in files?

I think they are asking you to make your 1 ae file a bit more flexible to the end user. Try to create your template so that it works for a text range of 2 – 12 letters and also an image. I for one have an image as a logo and no text.

You want this to sell to as many people as possible and the more flexible you make it, the more customers you will attract.
