I don’t think you should worry about this month drop and also expect that October will not change a lot than this month.

here are my last year stats where sales dropped for August and October but November was the best month

here is also a screenshot from another author for the past two years



People are saying that this month sales will hit the sky! Hope they are right :P !

My experience

So I hope it does not go as bad as previous years

Also September is the month I go in vacation :P

I have no explanation why sales everywhere drop during these months

P.S: I didn’t include December in the screen-shot, sometimes we have to forget some records to keep going :D

This is an issue for a long time but I guess there’s nothing we can’t do right now. Also eventhough we can reply to the rating that doesn’t solve it because the buyer didn’t contacted you in the first place ( in which he can) means he doesn’t want your support! and not planning to get it fixed.
...or he didn’t know that we can’t reply to his rating review. And that is the problem.
Haha, seriously?? I’ve never thought of that! anyway I don’t think replying is the best solution for that, I hope they will find a better option ;)

Exactly, Most buyers think we can reply to what they will write because this is logical and well-known at almost all other services they use like Fiverr,Freelancer .. etc

The buyer also may not contact the author because he think that the item itself is the problem and it can not do what he intended to do with it

as example the last bad review I got the buyer wrote that “The demo video is a lie” thinking that the plugin can not get the job done although the problem which was described by him was due to wrong configuration.

Possible Bug?

When I hover one line on the chart representing one day sales it shows the sum of sales this day ignoring the change

i.e for example if there were two sales in this day one for $2.30 and another with $2.10 value

the expected shown amount is (2.30 + 2.10 ) which is 4.40 . it displays 4.00 instead.

I’m on FF 30

Every bunch of days, I get new 1 star ratings with a review from buyers on a Wordpress plugin that proves that they are doing something wrong and so this is not the plugin fault that they did not get satisfied

+ these buyers didn’t contact with me with any mean i.e no comment / no PM or a support ticket.

once you find one of these reviews you wish you can reply the author and tell him what to do to get things going

but unfortunately you have nothing to do than watching this wrong feedback and hope less future buyers will do these faults again

but because this is a nature of people that we mistake our wish will never come true.

The solution is simple which is a comment box.

in a regular awake developer terms, this takes no more than 20 minutes work to implement.

I shared something I suffers from every now and then and I hope Envato listens and take action in the coming 5-10 years so I can see a solution before items I sell become something from the past :D

we are also really proud of what we achieved and love the new look. With time, we hope you will too.

You, respectable staff love the badges but not the community. Please note it is named “Community Badges” not “Staff Badges” so even it is loved from staff you should respect and adapt to community needs not just hope that community will love it

May it does not mean alot for staff that this paw is silver and the other is platinum, Only authors can know what it means for them to move from one old coloured paw to another because they feel it, long waited for it and worked very hard to reach it. now it is gone and you got just another number

At all I give up and will unfollow this thread. just RIP my old lovely badges. This is life some people ruin others loved stuff. :crying:

ValvePress comment here!!!


Between us, I have a matching story to tell, when I was talking with my friend (he used to be an author here) that I was frustrated from the new badges and even without I know that it was made by Kate he told me (even before he see them) “There should be a women who made it” I laughed and told him that he must be wrong and he should not be that biased. So I laughed a lot once I saw your debate and found that my friend thought was right. I hope he will not see this commend :D

ValvePress friend you need to read the comment above!!!

LOL, Thanks for the emphasize. I think I have to change my avatar now to something cartoonish ,childish and dark orange with a huge moustache and broken neck so once my friend come here he will not bear looking at it and I don’t get detected ;) :D

@realthing this sexist hysteria is ridiculous, I also father with two kids, and our gender designs is different, this is fact for me, somebody have more, somebody less skills. And when some designer (or team) can’t make the task, hire new designer (team) or correct the task. Here right @VF say this is collective failure. So need to think again what to do next, because this badges still and obvious not working. upd- I am for community competition.

I think you should just shut up actually, we have tried explaining why you should change your attitude in an intelligent way, and it is wasted on you.

You are a caveman.

@FlossieWood , @realthing Guys Please don’t take it personally every one has the right to believe in whatever he likes and you don’t have the right to be rude with people just because their opinions are different than yours.

and yes when someone says “Shut up” this is a pure rudeness at least in my opinion

@Kontramax Even if I don’t agree with your opinion about gender regarding design and I think what I care is the good design even if it was made by a zombie and I think a contest will be the solution where we don’t care genders.

Between us, I have a matching story to tell, when I was talking with my friend (he used to be an author here) that I was frustrated from the new badges and even without I know that it was made by Kate he told me (even before he see them) “There should be a women who made it” I laughed and told him that he must be wrong and he should not be that biased.

So I laughed a lot once I saw your debate and found that my friend thought was right. I hope he will not see this commend :D

at all you have the right to believe
