I guess just as envato market, envato studio would give you a sale reversal (or job reversal) if a payment is disputed.

Did not have this experience yet but in theory, if a job is disputed then the staff check if the specs had been fulfilled and who is right and wrong. They should not automatically give the money back to the client.

Fortunately clients are great till now. :) Hope it continues.

Don’t know about sales reversals on envato studio. Hope to not find out :D

For some reason it always happen just that single time when you didn’t asked for an advance payment :)

You may have lost some money and time but you learned a great life lesson.

As per the rules you don’t. it will be against our rules

I’ve specifically asked about an item that supposedly breaks these rules and a staff member (KingDog) locked the thread and since the item description is still unchanged then these rules doesn’t exits.


ok, thank you doru and all. i will contact envato support.

Please contact them and let us know what they said. But should let you do it. They already let another author do this so why you should not be allowed? It would not be fair.

Yes you can

You can definitely put links to free stuff on your item page. Even a big banner.

I’ve created a thread about this and staff saw it and lock it since for some reason threads about this issue need to be locked while the item that have this type of promotion is still there.

Go for it!

I can’t help but feel that things are taken too far when I read comments about people needing to be fired, that Envato needs to hire ‘proper’ designers and that our next change will be a switch to Comic Sans.

Please don’t change the font to Comic Sans.

You are trying to say that when you remove all items (and just keep them in a hard drive, they lose their supposed value) This is true but isn’t the same for any other assets out there?(except gold and platinum maybe)
huh? where am I saying something about removing items?

you are saying that if you have 100k invested and you get 7% each year at the end of the year, you will have 100k + your earnings.

But here you will have just your 7% earned. Not 100k.

If you remove those 100k from the investment you will have 100k but no more return. Is what happens here. If you remove the items, no more return. Are the removed items still of a 100k value or they no value when removed? You say they have no value

Or I understood wrong what you are saying?

Appreciate your Portfolio because to earn equal amount from alternative investments – would require to invest more money than you’ll ever have in spare.

You are comparing work wage with interest here. That is a bad comparison to start with. Let’s say in year 2018 you have your last sale, just lets assume that. And lets say you have earned $150,000 in total from your portfolio since your start here in 2010. So that was the money you got for your work, and earned that over 8 years.

You know how much money I would need to equal $150,000? Answer: $150,000.

The reason why people invest in things like real estate or financial investments / stocks is because there is a chance that they can both earn on rent/interest as well as not lose their investment when they sell it one day. So they have a steady stream of income as well as the investment. Otherwise it would make no sense to pay for a real estate as you won’t earn that much in rent in half a lifetime.

You are trying to say that when you remove all items (and just keep them in a hard drive, they lose their supposed value) This is true but isn’t the same for any other assets out there?(except gold and platinum maybe)

Isn’t workwage a return on your own value? Getting philosophical but the biggest assets you have is yourself :D
