No need to translate – got it first time, you want to give a bonus to people for doing what they should be doing. You said:
“as far as Envato takes up to 50% commission, I don’t see why someone who has performed a poor QA can receive the same benefits as someone who has performed a proper QA and gets the “privilege” of outsourcing his/her QA to the reviewer.”
You’re contradicting your point here. You are first saying those that do things correct should get a bonus, in this statement you are saying those that don’t shouldn’t get the SAME benefit (percentage). Which is it?
As an author who works hard to get your item accepted (regardless to the number of times it may be rejected) you are rewarded for this hard work with sales – the more sales you get the higher your earning potential – I think the system is perfect in that sense.
Waiting 3 days for a review is not uncommon and this has been like this since the beginning – sometimes it’s faster, sometimes it’s slower – you realize that one reviewer is currently on vacation right – hence the slightly longer period?
Just want to clarify that I’m not here trying to argue with you – I just don’t agree with your point.
You should ask your hosting company to run a security scan on your files and server to see if, as Smartik mentioned, any malicious code was injected anywhere – they should perform this free and without you asking, but then again it depends on your hosting company.
Awesome work from both of you guys – keep it going and many congratulations
Is this for real? You want to get rewarded for doing what you’re supposed to do!? Who wants a badge for getting up in the morning – how about $5 for brushing your teeth….
Enabled is correct – I have thousands of clicks per month and only a handful of purchases – however if targeted correctly then that ratio gives better results – such is marketing and affiliate programs for anything and everything.
One word however, not entirely sure you should be using the official WordPress logo as your avatar… it does make it look like you are officially from WordPress and that is miscommunication based on a trademarked logo, I would be careful using that and surprised Envato allow it.
Well ouch on the date but it really doesn’t matter based on your question – it’s a valid one and one I feel strongly about.
The fact that people think they can go to college to become an artist (of any level or type) just isn’t the case – you either are, or are not. The only thing that increases your ability as an artist is to practice your profession, as practice makes (nearly) perfect I believe. Now you may be given information to help you become better, but in the end it’s a personal ability thing.
That’s not saying that this method isn’t the same for any job or industry, we all start as a beginner, novice, etc but the more we do something the better we become (generally). Some people can try to do things all their life and will never be awesome at it, some will always be terrible and some will fall in the middle – it’s the ceiling height of your abilities as a person in that field – nothing wrong with it at all and it’s human nature – this is why we have professionals and not so professionals at everything.
Now I believe the issue lies with companies and hiring. I’ve been in the fortunate position to own companies, work for companies, been in management of companies and also a freelancer – also note not all have been in the web design / print design / animation industry all my life.
As background, I went to college many many moons ago to get a degree in art, which I did, then didn’t go in to ‘designing’ in anyway for literally decades later. The issue is companies and their hiring processes demand college degrees. I have no idea why, as it means nothing and it’s about time they changed this model for certain industries – I say certain industries because if you wish to be a doctor then yes you need degrees, no one will hire Joe Smith because he says he can do a heart transplant obviously – but with our professions, experience is the thing people want to see, a portfolio, a spectrum of abilities and the software used etc. Anyone can do this with the internet these days, what with Tuts+ and every other learning website, you have everything you need.
A college degree basically means you spent a whole chunk of money to get a piece of paper that states you attended. It doesn’t mean you are good at designing websites, or print – just you attended and paid.
Show me someone who started to learn before leaving school, created a portfolio, built their own site and knows what I mean when I mention industry terms and I would hire them (and have) over someone with mediocre abilities and a college degree – that person that went out on their own, studied on their own, built things on their own is a go-getter. They understand what needs to be done in the real world and how to do it – that is priceless and I believe those people should be given tax breaks because of this – like money back for taking the time to just go and do it.
No worries – glad I could help
