Congrats Kontramax! Well deserved for a blog post (before christmas )
Let’s not forget what Flash was intended for, animation It’s only until the last few years it’s become more applauded for it’s scripting capability…
All the bad credits goes to Adobe’s approach on Flash developer’s community. I remember when Flash MX (6) released by macromedia, it came up not only with interface updated but high quality sample files (scripting and design) to inspire and educate the potential of Flash to the users.
I am sure Adobe still not interested in such things (what they do are finding new ways to pack all their acquired software). Not even having meaningful help resources. Most of the bitmap related technics are just staying hidden as there is no efforts made to expose design abilities to programmers and programming possibilities to designers.
Not sure if the bundles are advertised outside Envato marketplaces. Anyone knows about it?
^ I thought the rain is over
Looks like you can’t control more than 30 minutes
In the above page, last point on FAQ says:
Authors may not offer their items for free on the Envato marketplaces, nor promote free items anywhere on the marketplaces. Additionally, if an author is exclusive they may not offer their item for sale on the marketplaces for free on another site without voiding their exclusivity agreement with the Envato marketplaces.
I didn’t start this topic to promote myself. But I just couldn’t state my case fully w/o doing so. If a admin deems this as inappropriate I will remove it from my profile, although as of now, there is no such rule that bans me from doing so.
Consider that if you have a file X that sells 30 per week. You are uploading another file of similar category and it was rejected. Now will you considering the 2nd file to give away for free through your profile page? That will affect your own sales. The same for others.
I think rules can’t be always COMPLETE as some areas are solely depends on common sense. Sometimes rules updated after painful complaints!
God, I would have liked to see if this bundle was able to sell a copy or two without the greenshock and the secure swf things…. it seems that only we authors are buying it for the discounts…
We have problems on both the ways!. If the bundles sell like 3000+ in 4 days, regular files will get affected. If bundle doesn’t goes well, we afraid that no demand.
So inbetween those tragedies, there is a situation in which bundles bringing new buyers due to traffic but without too much sales!
Not sure how things goes here really.
