Hopefully Envato will remove the rating system for AudioJungle, it just makes no sense to keep it. That or turn it into a positive rating system only, like SweetWaveAudio suggested.
This is funny and ridiculous at the same time. Mistake or no mistake, this big retail company should really find another ad company to work with.
@wiseguys, first off I love your files so can’t imagine how you would have any problems.
I think we are on the same page with it, as I see the potential of what you suggest. I think the opt-in option is a great idea, I just fear that not everyone is as sensible as others and the minority as Final Destiny said may potentially argue with results and them not fully understanding design or code principals to make the relevant changes etc may lead to not only them not benefiting from the potential of your idea but unfortunately may ultimately become a headache for envato and reviewers.
Thanks Alex, unfortunately the design mentioned in the first post is a WiseGuys design (I am the designer of WiseGuys and 50andJack).
I agree that not all authors will be on the same track with the reviewer, there’s nothing that can be done about it, but I think most authors would benefit from this service. I know you can’t please every author, but the main idea is to have as few unpleased authors as possible.
So if such service would result in a substantial decrease in the number of unhappy authors, that would be a step forward and not backwards. Not to mention that reviewers would benefit from this as well, so it would be a win win situation
So our template got rejected because of the design not being unique enough KINGS. I’m not gonna argue the decision because I know it’s pointless, the reviewer is always right.
But since Envato is making their millions of dollars off of our hard work, it would be nice if they could have a department for pre-review. I know that could be a pain in the ass, but it couldn’t be more of a pain in the ass than getting rejected after working for countless days.
I can understand the lack of care from Collis or Cyan for the authors, since they’re making way too much money already, but a little more respect for their slaves would be very much appreciated.
So here are my ideas:
1. The pre-review could be paid. I’m all for getting paid for your time, and I’d gladly pay for my design (in psd state) to be reviewed officially by a themeforest reviewer. I like this idea best because everyone can benefit from it.
2. The pre-review could be free if envato doesn’t like the above idea, but only for members who have a minimum number of items in their portfolio, or a minimum number of sales, or something that would prove that they are actually interested in being authors and not only testing their design skills on the expense of envato.
Personally I’d rather have a paid service, that way the author would think twice before sending a design for pre-review, and envato would not suffer any losses.
I feel the need for a thread
