make 100% sure it really is the correct size and backward compatibility.

If it is and you’re 100% sure, then re-upload it with the comment to the reviewer saying that you verified the sizes and that they are all okay. And asking that if anything is not okay he could tell you where exactly the fault lies.

Good luck

Chris

As long as it’s in the queue, and you see that on your Dashboard, you will be okay.

Sometimes it takes longer, sometimes it takes less long. I’ve waited 10 days and more. So at the moment nothing to be alarmed about.

Cheers

I never worry about release dates. I just finish and release.

It used to matter more because we used to actually get some visibility on the front page, but these days I don’t see the point. Items sell over time, not because someone spots it on the frontpage the second you release it.

Aiming for featured file sounds good and is a noble target, but it’s also a bit like aiming to win the lottery :)

Hmmm, I could imagine many arguments for instant payout – but “boring” is definitely not one I would have thought off :)

Create more valuable and higher-priced items. You’re not going to make much money selling web banners and Facebook covers at $1 a pop. So look to create items that are more valuable.

Promote your items off-site. I found that the most sales I get from referrals from other websites outside graphic River.

Continue to produce high-quality content. Continue to produce lots of it.

it’s all paranoia :)

Sales just go up and down in and predictable. I have more items than ever and less sales than ever.

Then I have a day with multiple sales, then I have multiple days without a sale which I haven’t had in years.

I think the only thing that is constant is that there will be a downwards spiral in sales. The more items get added to Graphic River, the less you will sell.

So it’s always a hustle: keep adding fresh new items to maintain the same volume of sales. If you want to increase you really have to add some killer items, or great quantity. Otherwise your volume will be constant at best, or spiralling downwards.

In other words: if you buy the regular license you can use the image for your preview. If you buy the extended licence you can include it in the flyer download.

okay, sorry If I strayed off topic and my answer.

Here is the more precise comment:

1) reviewers are human. They cannot possibly know all logos of the world. This will happen from time to time 2) . Two wrongs don’t make a right. Just because one slip through, doesn’t mean another then also needs to be allowed to slip through. 3) if this was approved three or four years ago it is likely that approval Guidelines may not have been as strict in this category, or that the logo was not as well known at the time

But the bottom line is, just because there are sloppy approvals which should not have gone through doesn’t mean that others should go through. If anything, the previous mistake should be corrected.

Cheers

These logos are fairly generic. Four intertwined circles.

One of my corporate ID packages has a similar concept.

About a year after my corporate ID package started selling here I was contacted by a Logo author from GR alerting me to the fact that my logo looked almost exactly like his.

He was right, they were close to identical! I was however able to prove to him that I created this on my own by sending him all my working progress and concept files. So it’s all good between us.

Nevertheless anybody else looking at the two logos would think that they are the same.

So with simple basic concepts like this, you will most likely find other people had an idea very close to the original.

I’m not trying to say that there is no copycats here at GR, or that there are no duplicate items. But sometimes ideas just coincide :)

Yes, GR is only financially viable if you sell in high quantity.

I always estimate that as a minimum I would need to sell a file 100 times for it to be just about bearable financially.

Good thing that for me this is just a hobby – if I actually HAD to make money off this I’d be doomed :)

I know a number of authors who switched over the Themeforest. It seems it’s easier to get what you would conisder fair compensation for your creations.

Cheers
