I wrote this a while ago in another thread, and would love to bring this to your (or Envatos) attention again.
As a more or less “huge” company, in regards of the amount of electronic data, you should realy take in account to have a mirrored system for tests and developement.
I have worked many years in a IT (SAP) developement departement, and it’s crucial to work on business critical changes in a test environment before going live with it. Envato should understand that they are responsible for many individuals here which are living on the income from this marketplace. So it’s not something that should be taken light hearted and see how it goes.
Don’t get me wrong, i don’t want to offend anyone here, especialy not the hard working developers at Envato, but you should explain your “Bosses”, that it’s absolutely wrong to make changes and tests on a live system before everything has been tested and verified to work 100%.Thanks for reading and sorry for my english.
Agreed, generally you will want to push these types of changes out to a percentage of users and then aggregate the results and make decisions based off of the mine data. Then after that if you need more changes, you go through the same method until you get things just perfect and then you push out to the entire community. But hey, what do we know? We just do this for a living right
I tried to find “piano relaxing” on AudioJungle. Page 2, 3, 4 … are songs by the same author and have no relation to search. O_o http://audiojungle.net/search?page=2&term=piano+relaxing
Yea, I see what you are saying, and this goes back to duplicate content should be flagged and not be taken into consideration for the search result pages.
Example, I clicked all of the listings on page 1 and I see the same content in the items description fields, along with tags being remotely the same as well.
Mystic sound, suspense, inspiration, intrigue ..
If I were an author, I could easily exploit the search results pages by just adding in random keywords to the page description. Old trick we use to do back in the mid 90’s to get better rankings.
Perhaps you should take duplicate content into consideration for search results. That way if authors are copying a popular files content and tags it gets placed below the fold or something. I think that would help out a lot because many times we come across items that are of low quality but the copy looks like it was taken from another item with a few changes in order to exploit the search results.
Just a thought!
Send DMCA notices to amazon where envato hosts the download files, not envato corporate. Had a similar issue with a pirate site, I kept sending the owner of the site DMCA, he didn’t do anything. So I purchased one of my pirated files and seen that the download was being delivered by amazon.com – so I sent DMCA to amazon and Amazon removed the file from their servers. Hope this helps!
Hi, This is not a bundle, you can’t buy all those templates all-together in one bundle. It’s another kind of promotion. For a week, those email templates have a 30% discount (each template costs with 30% less)
alrighty then, I guess the promotion is a bit hard to understand, a colleague of mine from another agency sent me to the landing page, I guess we were both under the wrong impression here. :*(
Was hoping to get our grubby hands on these beautiful templates and tutorials at a bundle / membership purchase.
One more thing, so is it 500 resources or 600? Banner says 500 but the landing page says 600.
Just seen this promotion page on top of the website here that says “CREATE YOUR OWN EMAILS WITH 600+ TEMPLATES & TUTORIALS.”
Seems like a great deal but I cannot find the place to purchase all the templates and tutorials.
Says “Pay once. No recurring fees.” but I can’t find a button to purchase a membership to all of the resources and tuts. Please let me know where we can get our membership.
I actually like the new header, really helpful but I keep going to the dark logo area thinking it’s where the old category text use to be.
Perhaps they should have done like Google does and releases changes to a percentage of users randomly and then aggregating the data for 30 days to see whether or not the changes increased engagement and sales. That’s truly the only way to know whether or not these changes are a positive effect on the marketplace.
They could also have ran a split test / multivariate test to see whether or not the change had a positive effect as well. Also, adding heat map over the entire website would show results as well.
Overall, I like the new header, makes navigation super simple for me, just gotta get use to the links being below the logos.
We use to develop with foundation but they had so many bugs with foundation 4 that we stopped. They were being very lackluster on their github account as well with not responding to the major issues. We have found bootstrap to be a pleasant experience.
