Nice, just got a low rating on a track on my other non-exclusive account,,,well there goes that song. The time and effort I put into it now probably for nothing.

The authors have been asking to have this useless rating system removed forever now. The line of communication from staff lately is good and all, but if you want real improved relations between Envato and authors just give us something, anything, it’s easy. Not just talk but actually do something. If you can’t remove this silly rating system at least explain why.

I just wanted to say thank you to all of the authors and the starter of this thred. I am about to purchase my first real orchestral library in January. I have a limited budget of around $1,000. Last year I became interested in Spitfire’s Albion. But as a beginner in the field of orchestral music, I may want to concentrate on a more useful library for somone with very few resources in the genre at the moment. East West Holywood Strings or Symphobia sound like my best bets. I have a feeling that a library with a “finished” sound will serve me best for the time being. Which one do you guys think I should start with?

Looks like Hollywood Strings and other ewql items are going to be 50% off starting today, nice deal! Some nice deals at Native Instruments and Soundiron as well.

Just a quick update on this. We’ll be doing this in 4 stages.

1. Initial research of how we sit in terms of quality, licensing, and pricing – Done

2. Figure out if we need to make a change in licensing before a pricing change occurs – Begun

3. Discuss our findings with a small group of authors, including exclusive, non-exclusive, top-selling, and hobbyist authors – To do

4. Do a public poll to let everyone have input

Though we’ve started this process, we’re in the middle of a similar process with another item type. I’ll fill you in on dates when we have a better idea of when they’ll be.

Sounds good, thanks for the communication. I and I’m sure others appreciate the efforts you guys have been giving the community lately as far as communication, seemed to be a bit of a uprising happening.

If you hold down on the little green/white play symbol at button of a thumbnail image for a track a menu will pop up. Just select open in new tab and song will play. Make sure your finger is on the play button and not just on the image.

The current rating system has always been a temporary fix while we’ve worked towards something more robust and fitting. It’s an ongoing process but it’s something we’re going to push improvements to. Thanks!

Not sure if that means anything will actually happen with this giant issue, but thanks for taking time to reply, its good to feel like there is still a direct line of communication with the staff of Envato.

Maybe it can just be removed until a better system is pushed out. But I don’t know much about programming, so maybe its a big deal to even just simply remove the current star rating code.

Congrats, hope this boost your confidence, you have good songs. See if you can just get your stuff out in front of a targeted audience through promotion it will sell, if not, after the item is new it gets lost in the jungle. Promotion is key if you don’t have a top seller hit to drive sales.

Sophonic, You’re right… Basically, I’ll be doing a lot of ROCK !!! _\m/

Good, I think your rock stuff is great. I wish you nothing but the best of luck! Start a youtube channel with links back to your songs here on audiojungle. It might seem slow at first but it snowballs and becomes stable sales. I just gave your collections 5 star ratings because they deserve it, I don’t know if this really does anything but I hope it can help.
