Gareth is completely correct. In the case of the payment issues, we already had multiple threads being opened. When there is a known site issue we will often lock the thread down along with the last official reply. If we allow the thread to remain open, the official reply will often scroll off and new posters will continue to reply without knowing there has already been an official reply. We end up going round and round in circles if we don’t lock these kinds of threads down. And while we wont debate moderation decisions, we have very clear terms of conduct listed in our community guidelines. Thanks!

ok let see this a bit clear.

this thread is about debating the locking threads issue some of us reported.


And while we wont debate moderation decisions, we have very clear terms of conduct listed in our community guidelines. Thanks!

so this rule about discussion moderation process apply to this thread or not. because if you don’t want to debate moderation then you don’t open threads about locking threads.

so we close them all with no sticky thread to refer to.

that less and less people will see since the thread will get buried down. Is why new threads show up and you need to close them also.

if people don’t read the thread (it happens) there is always someone who will point them to the official answer


We end up going round and round in circles if we don’t lock these kinds of threads down.

And who cares? :) Is not that we pay money for hourly use of the forum. Let the people go around the circles till they get the money. If they don’t have something better to do at that moment.

I dont think anyone thinks envato will run away with the money, but the fact is that an ethical responsible company allows criticism and its blatantly obvious that when envato is at obvious fault they cant handle criticism and lock threads and post nonsense reasons.

is not automatically envato fault. they send the payment with a couple of payment systems that may have issues on themselves.

I guess you lock these threads to avoid emotions taking over and the creation of paranoia and conspiracy theories. But trigger-finger-thread-locking doesn’t help this.

Since there are authors that received the payment correctly we can inform them that the problem is momentarily but we can’t do this inside locked threads. With little confirmation of this type people just get more paranoid while is exactly the problem that locking threads action aspire to fix. They will believe the problem is general and will get desperate, will take first flight to Australia available and in the morning Collis will find in front of the office authors from all over the world asking for answers. Will be a hell of a situation created by locking a thread.

here you go. an example of locked threads with no point whatsoever

http://videohive.net/forums/thread/16-on-the-statement-date-still-no-payment-/142332 http://videohive.net/forums/thread/payments/142270 http://videohive.net/forums/thread/almost-end-of-the-day-still-wait-for-august-payment-never-late-before/142316

locked threads about the payment process. those people didn’t receive their money and they ask others if they received or not.

Yes we know envato headquarters are closed but there is no point in locking threads. explain them the situation and let the thread open. if many people have issues with this, staff needs to know. if you lock threads you will not find out if they have problems or not.

instead you are just giving a wrong impression with this locked threads fever

For who have this payment problem, I can confirm that they’ve send the money, I received them 16 hours ago. So they’ve not run with the money :D At least not with MY money.

Thanks, yeah i have noticed this becomes visible with black/grey. But when rendering lossless to AVI it looks fine.

yes, because is a codec problem. to have smaller file size the codec needs to get rid of a lot of information. Is where the problem appears.

is called color banding. there are a couple of threads on forum debating solutions for this issue.

very hard to get rid off without changing the colors

some use noise to force the codec to register more color information.

you can also use the dither option on the ramp effect. also change the two colors from the ramp. you need more color information.

for motion graphics category stay away of h264 as codec.

if you check your image you can see that where the difference in color over distance is different enough the problem is not noticeable. it get’s worse on the margins where you have a lot of black and grey. Add some color there, a deep green blue maybe
