C’mon – clear language? Then it wouldn’t be terms and conditions! lol :)

Did you know that there are translation businesses whose only business is to translate official government communications into something people can understand.

Drafting legal text is an artform. And the first premise is: no one can understand what it’s about, otherwise no one would ever sign it … lol :)

Cheers

In the same line, other days of the week where Envato is busier than others?

I have made my policy to try and release Friday nights, so it gets reviewed and usually comes online by Monday.

This way I feel good about myself over the weekend and I always figured that Monday would be a good day to be on the front page with a new item.

But that’s just me figuring, I don’t actually have any statistic data to support that theory…

I think he’s asking why PayPal is taking such a big cut out of the transaction?

I was wondering the same thing. In the terms and conditions it says that for purchases/services the maximum PayPal skims would be 3.4%. However out of my last transaction it was almost 5%.

While I have no problem with paying for the service they provide I think 5% is daylight robbery. Visa/MasterCard, any of these, wouldn’t dare take more than half of that.

Ah well, they know they are in the position of power, so what you gonna do eh? :)

Maybe you could let us take a look at the preview of the rejected logo?

Logo designs are very subjective. I have seen great ones not accepted here, well I thought they were great, and I’ve seen lesser ones get accepted.

I would say that more often than not the reviewer does know what he’s doing. But in some cases it is a bit subjective.

However if that’s the only criticism the reviewer had, then that’s a pretty easy fix. Just make the text a little bigger and resubmit :)

Cheers

This is something most designers who could do in 5 min. There is no incentive to buy a file like that. Also, honestly, it doesn’t look anywhere near as professional as it should.

Why don’t you take a look at what’s available here already:

http://graphicriver.net/searches?sort_by=sales&type=files&filters=&term=3D+text+style&category=&page=&categories=&type_id=

Now ask yourself if you find it anywhere near the quality of these?

Also, go easy on the ALL CAPS please. No one will help you here if you shout at them.

Cheers

HI all,

I created some 3foot x 8foot large print vinyl banners last week. I thought of putting a spinoff version on GR but I’m wondering if that sort of file is welcome here? I don’t see any siimilar and there’s definitely no category for them

Everything print banners seems to be flyer handout size.

I’m talking about this sort of stuff:

http://www.esigns.com/vinyl-banners/

... for conferences/conventions/expos etc.

I have created a few of these for corporate customers in the past, I’m wondering if there may be an interest on this market place – or if they are even accepted as items!

Cheers

Apart from the suggestions made above I also think that you preview looks very smudgy and over compressed.

hi all,

I just got a soft reject for one of my files because “it appears there’s a problem with your Preview Image Set.”.

I checked and I saw I messed up on the numbering of the preview images.

So I fixed that and resubmitted, but now I realised that my hidden item with the soft reject does actually feature the additional preview images. You can click on the “screenshot” button and get to see all the preview images.

So now I’m wondering: if the soft reject was because there was a problem with my preview images, but my hidden item does actually feature working preview images … hmmmm … Am I missing something?

Or is it normal procedure that they put up the preview images even though the format was not quite correct.

I named them “example-5.jpg” instead of “05_example.jpg”.

Just wondering while I wait for the review to my update…

Cheers

Chris

PS: hey, it’s only a soft reject, that means that my item as such is great, horray :)

All that for a file that’s worth three or four bucks? How much time and money does the back and forth cost? He’d probably be cheaper of just buying the file he needed instead of losing time writing silly e-mails…

Honestly, I would ask for the reviewer to give some details as to what’s missing here. Personally I think it looks nice. Maybe they just question the usefulness. Maybe it’s not flexible enough. Maybe the reviewer spotted some quality issue I don’t see. “X” mentions the faces needing some work … I think that until you get some feedback from the review team it’s all just guesswork…

Cheers

Chris
