I’d like to read the whole thread, but I can’t. So I’ll make it even more difficult for future readers and add another post:
There is a lot of concert about Envato’s 30% cut on support earnings. I totally understand Envato’s model, and I don’t agree with the “you do nothing, author does everything” attitude, and I accept the marketplace’s share, BUT if you won’t provide a real support platform (forum, better comments, tickets… anything), like you promise year after year, then don’t you dare to touch my money
No, seriously – have a little shame Envato, and charge 30% only after you build support forum we can use. I’ve been naive enough to not use external forum and wait for your move, and if you plan to fulfill your promises – when if not now?
As there are more and more community members, it’s almost impossible to follow hot topics because of number of posts.
Please consider adding features like for example [+] and [-] voting buttons, so readers could skip some less important posts. I’m not an expert in that field, so I’m sure there are better tools than this, and you’ll can come up with something. So please do.
A question for front-end developers team:
is the extra background color under each thumbnail a feature of a bug?
That kind of worked, thanks.
I search for a video. Is there a way to filter videos with more than 1 shot / take? I’ve tried the shots phrase (also with quotation marks) , but it finds shot too, so it’s useless for me.
Is this project dead or just asleep?
I’m skeptical as well. To many unfulfilled promises. BUT, I still believe, and I’d like to contribute. I’ve already posted some comments, and I’d like to be invited as well.
Luckily, Collis is back and will straighten this up in a moment. He won’t let the marketplace to be undermined like that. Uff
Hi Collis, and hi everybody. I gave it a little thought, and what I came up for next years of Envato is this motto:
“We shell not become CORPORATION”
I know it’s kind of a negative perspective, but I believe it might be actually a good thing at the end.
A few words of explanation:
We’re all familiar with big corporations, and we all know a frustration which they can cause. Becoming a corporation seems to be unavoidable, because it seems all companies become such when they grow. But I believe in Envato, and I believe Envato is THE company which can be a new quality in the capitalistic world and can find a solution to this problem.
Why? I’ve got one word for you: Community.
If you don’t know what I mean by this horrible “corporation” word, there is a little scene to illustrate it:
“your question is very important for us, please hold on a line until you don’t care any more”.
I don’t mean just superficial things like communication language. I go deeper. I think Envato should be a community-driven corporation. You’ve got such amount of precious resources right under your nose: creative minds. Find a way to use it, and you’ll win. We will win.
Not so negative in the end, ha? I told you
