Great interview, enjoyed the bit about the many little jobs he’d done for Envato which eventually landed him the full time gig
Well done Sam!
Congrats super star
Nice stylus, looking smart with the medal
@originalEXE, forget it, I’m gonna be stronger and faster in the next run
@DPereyra, I got mine through regular post,so it might take a bit depending on where you are located I guess.
OriginalExe, looking good with the medal, nice one mate!
Here’s mine :
Again, thanks Envato and many thanks to Carmen for organizing the competition, bestest! It was fun and this is actually the first time I’ve ever won a cup (a win for the community team yayyy) lol
ArashFarivar saidYou were onto something there, sadly several other authors were onto the same boat before you and got in early. This is probably why you see some basic scripts. The marketplace does not delete existing items. What they do is set the bar for entry higher than usual on those categories.
I thought, having a basic script which could be used on most situations, is good and people would want it (people want it but the marketplace..)
You’re right but something is not clear, if this can’t be, why weaker scripts are already on sale…
The best thing to do is look ahead, invest more time and attempt something fresh. I’ve dug up an old post and quoted the relevant pieces to give you some closure, hope it’s not out of context. Feel free to go through the entire discussion.
Trust me, we get at least 10 slider items every day. The ones we let through include at least one fresh idea, UX improvement or some other aspect which we deem sufficient for a high quality marketplace. I get what you’re saying with sliders as they’re getting quite saturated. And trust me when I say that the approval:submission ratio on those is 1:15.
Apparently, the improvements you’ve made aren’t sufficient. Hopefully you’ll have better luck on your next submission.
Got a cup in the mail today
I think it’s more a problem with marketplace saturation for authentication scripts based on the response you received, hence the barrier to entry is high. Even small things such as aesthetics and responsiveness matter but at this point, your shooting at a moving target so it’s best to look ahead and try and do something else.
What you’ve created is the basis for any type of Web Application, a good thing, so attempt a more specific category and build onto your item by developing a full app where there is a shortage of good solutions for a particular problem.
Don’t give up!
