use a programmers’ site that has built-in escrow, and don’t do lots of work for unknown people; always get half upfront
In reading about a project that was pulled due to a plagiarism complaint…
Just a reminder that it’s really important to us buyers that all projects here be original design and not lifting/copying directly from anyone, especially well known, especially big, companies and design shops who will follow through with plagiarism/copyright legal actions.
As a buyer, I need to be able to buy knowing that when I use a project here, the youtube and/or site video I make from it won’t be complained against by a big company whose design elements were copied by a VH author.
I know a lot of you are from countries with different/who cares about it/type laws… but here in the USA there’s a Lot of lawyers and legal actions all the time taken against people who copy. And so to keep everything clean, is really important, since of course if a buyer got legal action taken against them it would also involve Envato and authors as defendants in cases, which nobody wants.
I know most of you are all original which is great, just a request if you get “inspired” by something please make whatever you create significantly different so that it’s not a copyright/plagiarism violation. Keeping life simple is good, so avoiding conflict is always a win-win. It’s an ongoing issue, both internally w/some authors copying each other, and big picture, authors copying from outside sources, let’s make sure to avoid that…
any ideas on how to keep all the projects ‘clean’ and original?
too busy, use an auto drop down header menu instead

Black Fridays work for me, I’ve just spent a small fortune on another site. Sure prices are good on here, but there’s nothing like a time-limited discount to encourage you into buying a product you might have been dithering over for weeks.
+1 totally agree; for years I’ve been saying Envato should do something like “ENVATO 20% OFF BLACK FRIDAY SALE” ... I get excited just thinking about it, but sadly my many dollars this weekend go to Other sites that have BF deals. epic fail envato… lol…
an idea for the WP plugin coders- maybe develop some kind of “Deal of the Day” plugin for wp themes? It would likely sell a Lot. Something like how amazon has “daily deals” or “gold box special of the day”.
How it would work would be it shows a new image plus text/order link each 24 hours. Kind of like a banner rotator but with 24 hour cycle on delay. And what we as site admin would do is, enter maybe 20-30 different offers that are rotated one per day, over several weeks.
make sense? other buyers would you buy a “deal of the day” or “deal of the week” type plugin?
yeah that would explain it too, about timing for when authors submit w/5 day release….
keep an eye out, you’ll probably notice the same thing, is a lot of the week’s top projects come on the mini-flood on Thursdays
hi – in noticing trends here the last few years, it seems that envato chooses to release the top-priced, usually best projects on Thursdays. That’s also the day in which overall most projects are posted. Am i right in that observation? (and, almost nothing’s posted on weekends, something I would suggest changing). I’m here daily, my favorite place to be, so I noticed.
gotta have coffee… favorite brand lately is one called “peet’s”...it’s really good. I used to make espresso but then I was getting too much caffeine so I switched back to regular coffee… must – have – coffee—
i think the surcharge is a bad idea and makes negative first impression. you should welcome new money coming in with no penalty for single one-off purchasers since that’s how most new customers will come in
