I suppose I found this example particularly frustrating as it pretty much uses the same title and keywords but alas, that’s all part of the game I suppose.
I will take the Tim McNorris quote to heart, wise words. Time to step it up a notch then. : )
I have a query about projects that closely imitate others? I have recently been informed of a number of projects that have gone live on the hive that are very similar to some of my own works, one template in particular.
Have any of you had a similar issue and if so what do you recommend doing about it?
(I won’t post links to the templates as I am under the impression that violates forum rules, however, please let me know if I am allowed to in this instance as I would love you all to know what I am talking about.)
Ok, it’s a bit of a shame you didn’t let the original authors know that you needed the customisations done.
That’s my template, I would be happy to help you out. Send me an email.
For me it is a secondary income, however I do seem to get most of my freelance work from people who have seen my work on this site.
It’s like being paid (fairly well) to advertise my work, which is always nice!
I’d be up for the meetup in Hamburg.
I am out all day today sorting out mosquito repellent and last minute visas but will take a look at all your work later and try to let you know by tomorrow if I will be requiring your help.
I have only been part of Videohive a short while (about three or four months now) but it has been a lot more fruitful than I could have ever imagined and as a result me and the missus are going to head off to SEAsia for a few months to lap up some Sunshine and to work on my Thai cooking skills. Anyone who has ever been to England, or seen a photo will know that the Winters are not too kind and it will be nice to escape from the snow, riots and rail closures.
What this does mean is that I will be needing the contact details of a few talented individuals who might be in the market to make a few extra dollars editing my templates. I frequently receive emails from happy customers who have bought templates but require a little bit of help modifying, editing or rendering a template. As I intend to be exchanging the laptop for a coconut full of white rum and lime wedges, this job is up for grabs on a temp basis up until Dec 2011/Jan 2012.
If all you lovely people who are interested could post their email addresses in the forums (not item or portfolio pages as I think that may not be allowed), I can click on your avatar and see your work anyway.
I am basically looking to find a few talented, reliable Hivers that I can forward on my client’s template requests to for the next few months in the confidence that the work will be done well, speedily and reasonably cost effectively.
Kind regards, James (Smudgethis)
Congrats!! May I ask what qualifies for elite status??
I work freelance and use my downtime to create templates for Videohive, I don’t know if I would quit the game just yet but it would be nice to retire early (very early) and just let Videohive sales keep me in yachts and fast cars. (Bit more work required before that happens though).
