honestly, I don’t understand it either. Maybe a soft projection was some sort of explanation, but straight off hard project?

The business card category must be the one with the strangest set of what’s acceptable and what’s not….

Sorry, I don’t really see what’s wrong with them. That doesn’t mean that they can’t be improved, everything can be improved. But I don’t really see a reason for a hard reject.

Cheers

Chris

@n2n44 – I agree. I’ve been a victim of it myself.

I have had work rejected which was definitely far superior than many similar items in the same category. And far superior then items I see submitted in this category every week.

On the other hand, I have also had work rejected, and up on contacting support and discussing with the reviewer it was admitted without any further changes.

So sometimes it works out, sometimes it doesn’t. I agree that it’s not ideal. But it is much better than no review at all. You cannot leave this marketplace at the mercy of what people choose to upload. If you see some of the things people think should get admitted over on the items discussion board you will see what I mean.

Even if it’s not perfect, there has to be control.

There is no doubt however, that this control, the review process, needs improvement. Mostly it needs a consistent line of reviewing. It simply cannot be that one reviewer allows “rubbish” and another rejects quality work.

in the end reviewers are just people … a bit like referees in football match. Sometimes they’re great, sometimes they’re less great, but you know for sure that you could never play without them.

You do not need permission from anyone on anything you have created yourself. You are the one who decides what licence to apply to your own creations.

hi again,

I do understand what you are saying, and it is poor information politics by Envato.

However I don’t think you are affected in any way by this.

You have always been the person responsible for declaring your taxes in your country. If you did this correctly for a certain volume of sales before, then the exact same thing is still valid now.

Just because Envato collects VAT information from buyers doesn’t mean that anything will change for you. As before you need to declare your volume of sales in your country.

If as you say up to now this volume has been very low and exempt of taxation in your country, then this will continue to be the exact same.

But again, I’m not an accountant either, this is just how I figure it.

Please anyone correct me if I’m wrong

Cheers

Chris

Depends: I’ve had great help and I’ve been totally ignored. Like any support on this earth: worth a try, no guarantees though :)

Review is useful. Even with review so much rubbish gets accepted that it devaluates the market place. Without review GR would just be spammed by rubbish and none of us would make any sales because GR would be known as a marketplace full of rubbish.

Your query: it may not be fair, that’s right. But raising a ticket will not get your items accepted. Only the reviewers items will need to get fixed. So I would fix and re-submit kfirst if I were you.

But yes, agreed: one set of rules for everyone. That goes without saying.

Cheers

As far as I understand this will mostly affect buyers: whether they can purchase with or without VAT depending on their status.

Whether you declare your income from what you make here in your home country is and has always been up to you and doesn’t have anything to do with the VAT information Envato collects from buyers.

At least that’s how I understand it.

Cheers

I bet you could add a ton to this thread then:

http://graphicriver.net/forums/thread/graphicriver-items-spotted-/83477

It is really cool to see those in action. Whenever I see posters and flyers handed out I always take a looksie to see if I recognise anything :)

There’s also the opposite: I’ve seen threads here of designers praying not to be found out because they sell these designs as their own work to their clients (as they have every right to). Their clients is in turn think that they are design gods when all they did is purchase a template at GR – lol :)
