Interesting. My friend – a brand new author – is waiting for review for more than 3 days now with his very first song! :/
My friend had similar thing with his new account. They even wanted him to provide a video recording of him playing session file of the submitted tune in his DAW to prove its made by him. So yeah, they take extra time I guess.
There should be like an official message from Envato explaining this short queue.. is it temporary or a new standard? it will clutter again I presume but for now great, swings and roundabouts:))))
less than a day! Right on ENVATO!! you guys kick ass
+1 I mentioned this numerous times, it would be really helpful to have this feature.
Hi, here is another one of those why not posts, suggesting changes and if we are lucky, improvements..
I think there is a gap in development here and the functionality of global AJ search should be extended to also work along side of our portfolios, so to not distract and confuse people with soundizers and other crafty ways of exploring ones music…
let me illustrate my point.
Here is a little story of a customer, we call him “a buyer” When a buyer comes here and lets say uses the main AJ search box, his vast number of results is easily refined with tools he can find on the left hand side of the screen. And if he likes a particular track, he would have gone to listen to that authors entire portfolio, in search of similar tracks, using keywords, right?
But what happens when he gets there? The refine tools that he was welcomed with and started to comprehend are no longer there, and he is likely to be done checking that portfolio sooner, rather than later, cause it is a waste of time manually looking through 300 piece portfolio.
Then he goes, - oh wait, there is a “search portfolio” box on the right..I’ll use that…
But its nothing like the real thing…no information whatsoever…no suggestions about what keywords dominate the portfolio, basically zero functionality with chances to only stab something in the dark. Cause what about all the similar keywords that a buyer happens to not have on his mind while looking for music?
The whole explorer/search hype stops when a buyer hits authors portfolio…its like discovering that the spiffy looking anchorman on Six O’Clock News had no pants to account for. Its just embarrassing…
Hi, just throwing ideas at you Envato. Perhaps this topic was already talked about and if yes, than here it comes again.
Its about the list of 20 best selling authors in a given month. It would have been great if there was a link to a page like we have it with followers now, that would show all of the authors sales each month from the best to the very last one of us with 1 sale per month if one wishes to dig that deep.
Why, you may ask, why would that be important?
That list of 20 best.. we’v seen changes over the last year and great authors like MusicPremium are no longer on it…perhaps some of them are lurking round the corner but we never know, unless we count sales difference each month…but no one is gonna do it..so, it would have been awesome for new buyers, scouts and alike, to be able to see who is almost making the best 20 sellers list in terms of total sales count each month, wouldn’t it? There has to be loads of interesting authors making some decent sales (between 100 and 300) that we do not know about… I would not say that this is what makes it prestigious, the fact that you have to be in the first 20 to make the list.. we should open it up a little bit, simply for those who been everywhere obvious and want to efficiently dig deeper.
