Very Cool Mat! May not be the payday you deserve but very good for the resume. Congrats..
When your dealing with the world community you probably should just add a SIMPLE CLOCK of Envatos time zone so we don’t see these threads and dissapointed people month after month after month…...
For those new to Envato market places just click the automatic withdraw of all earnings at the beginning of every month so just in case you forget you will have your ass saved.
For most R.F. music I try to get to the chorus or “hook” within first 45 seconds. Might not apply to categories like Ambient or cinematic though, but I don’t do those.
I pretty sure your preview has to be exact to the file or files they will be getting. You can and probably should do 30 and 60 second loop options which can be included in the preview file as well. You would probably still want full preview first in line though.
Phil, now I’m not even sure. If it goes by his situation obviously its by upload if not a system error altogether. I read past threads and everyone post something different of their interpetation of the top new author system. Every post is different.
Would be nice to get official word on this and have the info in a place where new members will likely read it before uploading. I’m sure he would of liked to wait a few days to upload if my “Theory” on the top new author list is correct.
Sophonic saidThanks dude, but they rank sales, so It´s common sense that they would go after sells…you think
Goes by upload date not sale, sorry man, great sales and music though, you will do fine here. As far as guys being members for a year and being considered new, I started a non-exclusive account back in march but didn’t upload till this past Oct 2012 so that’s probably the case.
You would think by sales but no, that’s not how it goes. Its been discussed on the forums many times, pretty much every month the top new author list comes out someone always makes a thread like this.
Also, since your first upload was in late Oct, you could of easily made your first sale in the last few days of Oct which would of still screwed you. Whatever the case is this list will not make or break you, so just forget about it and keep writing great music.
Maybe envato should be more clear to new authors how this system works.
