Thanks so much guys, the advice is golden, especially from authors as highly regarded. Thanks for taking the time to answer this. I’ll probably adapt the same method because it’s sounds much more organized and well thought than what I have now.
I’ve been trying to figure out how to get more organized with the names of item updates and I was curious how some of you do it.
I’ve seen that some stick to 1.0,2.0,etc but I’ve also seen that some use things like 18.104.22.168.15 :)) i’m just trying to get a bit more organized so any tip would help!
Well deserved. Great work and keep it up.
Calm down guys.
This only shows how desperate the situation became. You don’t see every day so many elite authors replying to forum topics. At the time I joined, I barely saw elite authors active on the forums, but with the recent topics, one of three replies is from one author that has at least 1,500-2,000 sales. Stuff’s going on!Let’s hope for the best and let’s focus on creating good items while letting Collis handling the things we complained about!
Funny thing is that everybody is talking like FINALLY things will change. Doesn’t seem that way.
Last night 16 Wordpress themes got in! That would be a good place to start CHANGING.
Yeah perhaps I wasn’t too clear but that’s what I meant. eg: 1 item every 3 hours = 8/category/day. That’s more than enough really.
@TommusRhodus – it’s not just about better quality although I totally get what you mean. It’s also about creating a simple bumper zone for accepted items where they each get a “time limit” of being in queue.
For example, item no’1 gets it and 3 hours later item no’2 gets in. If they’d do this for each category things would certainly be much more fair. Even if it would be a little exposure time, you’d at least know that everybody has the same chance at making it big and not that somebody stays in top5 for 5 days and you stay for 15 minutes.
Yeah @FinalDestiny, that won’t bring us food unfortunately.
Yeah we just got our answer unfortunately. This is ridiculous and somebody should really try and listen to us. Working 1 month on an item to see it in and out of the homepage in 12 hours and category page in 24 hours is really beyond ridiculous. You can release the mother of all items, in 12 hours you have 0 chances of being noticed.
Tonight’s accepting rate is only justified if tomorrow only a couple will be accepted – but something tells me it won’t be the case.
I really don’t get it why Envato is promoting GOOD LUCK instead of promoting quality. Long story short – you can have a shitty template – stay on the homepage for 48 hours of course you’ll have sales, but you can have the best item in the world – if you’re “Gone in 60 seconds” nobody will even notice it.
I mean this is really ridiculous. There are a lot of talented people here and nobody says that the review staff is not doing a good job, but this inconsistency in exposure time is extremely unfair.
@Simon you should definitely at least let us know where we can follow your facebook/twitter, etc. At least a few follows to help pay for the work you’ve put in this.
Totally agree with Onioneye here. I’ve market this for a staff reply hopefully we’ll get some light shed of this.
