This is 2 months old thread and we better keep quiet
Instead of having those promotion buttons on downloads page, they can set a buyer dashboard and display all kind of promotional stuff there. The buyer’s dash board may contain useful things such as comment replies, Pending feedbacks, Pending downloads, Updated item list, recommended items etc.
Now clearly, Studio part of Envato is resource hungry.
I have noticed just now, but there actually says “Has colleced xy items on Envato Market.” like we’re actually playing with imaginary money… again goes funky.
That’s the scariest part of these changes. Just worrying how the concept of shopping cart will be implemented here. Hope that will not ignore commercial aspects of the market.
This means there could be another (locked) announcement in the near future which says we have Studio button an all marketplace items.
The announcement is locked because they are “trialing a new communication approach for our smaller, lower impact releases”.
I wish Envato to find a way to educate buyers about these buttons and make sure this doesn’t affect item ratings etc. Forum is not a way to communicate buyers. The interface should speak itself with the buyers every second
^ That’s one thing and they don’t depend on % cut is another thing. In a positive way!
It is funny that those with single digit sales number sharing our numbers. There are authors who have nearly 100 sales in a day and doesn’t aware / bother about this birdthay mambo jumbo!
^ That’s wrong assumption. The easier way is: authors will agree to each other and make mutual purchases
Can I ask what kind of display you have? I had some tricky moments designing for an older resolution monitor and and also with my lovely macbook retina display (I had both running a version of the same file). They wanted to fight over which one got the best results. The old pixel based icons looked super blurry on the macbook. These new ones seem to be displaying blurry for some of the users now too. SVG can mostly fix this, but there’s only so many pixels available in a 34px square
21.5-inch iMac 1920×1080 – 102 PPI
iPad 2 – 1024×768 – 132 PPI
Those are not retina and I aware how much sharpness we can expect for a 34 CSS pixel area. The problem is the amount of detail it contains within that area.
The exclusivity badge and Beta tester badges are good example of simplicity – those are great on concept and execution. But the item feature and author hall of fame badges are too complex to the point that a buyer can’t distinguish or get familiar even in the long run. So if you reduce the size into 24px on item pages, still the beta tester badge will fit and others wont fit even with 48px.
