I have one more confusion. Did they changed the algorithm recently?

Last week, when this feature introduced, I made a specific keyword search and found my 3 years old item not being marked as Trending. Few relatively new items marked because of recent sales. That’s the correct way.

But today noticed my 3 years old item marked as trending and new items from others aren’t marked. May be the recent sales numbers causing the old item to stay trendy that’s ok. But actually the new item was the one that made better sales last week. So the Trending feature actually gives high boost for overall sales and low boost for recent sales? It supposed to work the other way.

:dead:

So what is the value to the user (you guys, the authors)? It’s in knowing how close your item(s) are to being reviewed.

Transparency – knowing how many before someone’s item will make sure there is a fair process going on even to the new authors. I don’t mean there will be issues related to trust but part of Envato’s success was because of transparency. Please give value and priority for that.

To relevant staffs: I would like to see the entire rating system removed until you guys find a perfect one. (Just kidding)

I guess below is a simple set up you can arrange. Your sudden concious of perfection is killing the logic. The following one will in fact avoid more and more support queries:


You may simply write “There are 58 items before yours”. And after this message do a small button with ”?”. When mouse over this button, people can see the explanation that they are actually not 58, that this number can be higher in the future because… reason, reason, reason. And that is all!

“Undiscovered” is almost there click on sales and click on ascending order that brings up the items that are not sold much…

Undiscovered is most likely not based on sales but page views in ascending order. (within a span of time of course)

Take a look at my WP tool ;) Of course nothing magical, but could help

The original post speaks about different thing.

@azzaroco, Once I faced this kind of situation. I guess this is rare and as well as inevitable.

Most probably the elite.envato.com page will be updated before someone touches 10 Million. No worry about 25 Million.

We already lost some options like Price adjustment tools allowed for Elite authors. It just a matter of changing text.

If you sort by trending you’re essentially saying “trending is my primary priority, relevance is my secondary priority” so it’s possible that you get the scenario that you presented. It’s not completely black and white as this, but you get the idea. The results still need to be relevant, but a higher focus is placed on whether items are trending or not.

Yes, this is inevitable with current level of maximum possible relevancy. This is more of an issue related to the overall search abilities.

Instead of depending only the sort facility, can we add the option to filter based on “Title & Tags Only”? Because in many cases, half of the search results are based on description alone – and those are beyond the need of buyers and limits the process of finding right item. If they could cut 10+ pages of roughly matching results into 2-3 pages of precisely matching ones, that would solve. Of course as an optional feature.

It was always $60 (from as long as i remember – at least two years).... $35 is only Envato’s part – the rest is your (and not only) bank.

Yes, it takes $60 for me and noticing it for many years.

My bank always completes the Friday transactions on Tuesdays.
