A while (and not that long) ago – and I believe Doru remembers that moment – we were asking about all things we really miss and finally, instead of some action from the Envato HQ or devs, we got “answer” that we should stop spreading the negative energy on forums by always complaining. We ended up being the bad guys…

yes, remember this, an unfortunate series of events since in my case (but I’m sure this apply to other authors) I had no intention in disturbing the marketplace or complaining. I’ve acted a bit of criticisms, since this was actually asked by staff.

But maybe is me who have no real experience with corporate speak, or they believed we will understand something else.

I mean if I work for envato, and I would know some internal movements, who proposed that, who asked for this, and Collis would come up and say:

“Hey Doru, what do you think about this and that?”

I may be careful in criticizing some idea that was already implemented and was proposed by someone who may not tolerate certain criticisms.

For a employ if a certain author doesn’t sell, it change nothing, as long the company revenue is ok he get his paycheck. Why getting himself in dark waters?

But I’m not working in the company and you want my opinion then I will be sincere about it. I don’t care about personal feelings at this point, I don’t even know this internal back story that come up with every decision that is taken and even if would had known, it make no difference.

I need to be sincere about it because it affects me directly. Off course if the critiques are misunderstood, then what to do?

Is there any post related to this? any 70% week? :)
Ha, ha, nope, I think someone has jumped the gun a little bit but very thoughtful all the same, thanks for the well wishes! Our birthday is in August, and we’ll definitely be celebrating in style, but later this month. :)
move the celebration to the end of September, start of October, because now we sell nothing and 70% week would not be at full potential
Totally hear you, Doru, but unfortunately, I don’t think we can change when we were “born”. :)

:) it was worth a try

As Ruben said is not allowed, but since no one is watching (imagine staff losing time checking github and compare with code in item sold here) you are relatively safe, except now they know you do it :) so expect the envato SWAT team to knock on your door

Hahaha… I always enjoy reading your comments. :)

Rules can change. So, I clicked “Request Staff Reply” on my own comment above. :-D Lets see what Envato will say on this thread…

8 months and still waiting for reply from staff

Sounds weird though: such mechanism sounds logical in case author purchases his own items using a referral link to boost his sales number/rating. But we’re not doing such things.

no, is for sales reversals. envato takes the item author cut back and looks they take the referral cut also which make sense from a theoretical point of view but is not a nice move for a multimillion dollar company.

I’m pretty sure they can support this scams attempts, they generate enough revenue to cover this situation without throwing this on authors back. Is also quite envato “fault” because is their store. If a thief enters in your store means you have not enough security. Why is my fault, then?

This sale reversal situation is one of the main points where the authors community had lost a bit of unity with the company. Each time there are some changes that have some issues, authors are less forgiving. And maybe envato should stop a think about why this change happened.

That’s how it goes…. snore. But actually, the summer hasn’t seen such a lull as I remember seeing in previous years.

general state of economy in western countries doesn’t help either.
