Phew. Just submitted an HTML template after three weeks of work. Although rejection is always an option, i’m relieved. 4pm, beer time.
Oh, thanks. Pitty.
Well, i’m not so sure about it. The item page on TF serves as a sales page, and generally this is where the whole process of selling and purchasing takes place. What if someone visits the live preview site without knowing about the actual item? Plus, we are not selling the images with the templates, they are for “preview” purposes only.
If it helps anyone.. i used to get all sorts of errors while uploading files when i had two or more browser windows open on the same upload file page. Make sure you only have one active instance at a time.
All right, if you haven’t heard yet Getty Images released 40 million stock photos to the public:http://www.wired.co.uk/news/archive/2014-03/06/getty-images-embed
They can be used for non-commercial purposes, but this is where it gets a wee cloudy for me. Can we embed these images in item previews for HTML templates, WordPress themes, etc.? Our live previews are not “commercial” per se and often they do not contain any direct links to the item page here on ThemeForest. It would be great to hear from Envato staff and other authors.
I’m extremely thrilled to have my oldest item updated (originally uploaded 3 years ago, in January 2011). For reasons unknown to me i woke up at 7am this morning and spent 12 hours straight working on the new version. I must admit that the satisfaction level is quite high, of course incomparable to getting an item accepted, but still. I’m wondering if this will have any impact on the level of sales.. probably not, given the fact that monthly page views dropped down to roughly 200 a month. I guess i will see in several weeks and use the results as a hint whether issuing updates is worth anything.
Ah.. so we’re actually encouraged to post a link to the approved item here.. so be it.
