I thought I share something I’ve missed on the photodune site.

It’s kinda hard as author to evaluate the interest per item(s) (that are not already sold or even if sold). So it would be nice if there is something like a “views”-feature on the site, so authors can say ”....oh, look at this item, I got 500 views and only 2 sales …” . With this kind of trend indicator authors can double check if their items are of customers interest, or should be updated, cause customers back up and buy other files instead.

Thanks, Jan

Sorry, but I don’t recieved any usable feedback at the last rejection. The answer that the reviewer himself is preparing a similar file was very annoying to me.
You mean to say that was the reason given to you for rejection?

I got that so but maybe you can have a own look in a reply that I’ve posted before.

Moin Jan, that doesn’t sound like a good reason for the rejection. Good to see you’re from Hannover, I lived there for a while and liked it a lot! If you want to live in a crappy city, try Glasgow in Scotland. No proper beer gardens or anything…

:) It’s meant a little bit ironic. I’m quite happy living here. Other towns other problems I would say, but at least you can familarize with it to live anywhere. Was a rearrangement to move from Dresden to Hannover, but was a lot of years ago … :)

if that is true, i am going to make big alarm on the board. On your place, i would just email/forward a copy of the reviewer feedback to the GR site manager (Amanda) and ask if she can clarify what this means.

Maybe I’ve got something wrong, I would keep to soft-pedal in this case. But thank you for your support.

I think you misunderstood the note. I took a look at the note you got from the reviewer. First he tells you that your item requires a tune-up and then he links you to 5 files that are similar to yours in concept which have been accepted and one of those files is his own. I don’t see how this would imply that the reviewer is preparing a similar file.

This is a quote of the rejection:

This File Did Not Meet Our Criteria

You have got a good idea here… actually I am preparing a new turn table item soon.

The issue with your file is that unfortunately it requires a lot more work and tune-up.

There are no details shadows and clean elements.

Please take a look at these items to make an idea: ... etc.

If I got this in the first line I hope you can understand my point.

You got the rejection email wrong. ;)

The statement made by the reviewer was just a friendly note… no reason to feel annoyed about it.

About the item it is clear that it requires more work done as the final result looked unfinished and the examples provided are suppose to help you out and see how the authors have applied details and raised the quality of their files.

If you ever need more help from your reviewer just request more information about your rejection by sending a support ticket and your reviewer will get back to you. ;)

Maybe I’ve got this a little bit wrong, but I’ve send a reply to support@envato.com and got no ticket opened and no answer.

So I thought to post it here. I won’t made a big deal out of it. Rejected is the file anyways and I’ll work on it to improve it. But the items diplayed for help will not be my personal style and I think they aren’t detailed much more. But this I can’t evaluate cause I can’t have a look at the .psd’s. Maybe you can drop me a line with more details about it, I would apreciate this a lot! Thanks in advance.

Hehe, I’m 29, living single and was owner of a bicycle-messengers company, but this thing went wrong. So here I am.
