In modern web browsers it doesn’t matter if file extension is *.jpg or *.gif. If there’s an animation in file – it will load as animated gif, no matter which extension your avatar seems to have.
Now, AJ upload system allows only *.jpg or *.png files. It will check if the file extension is correct and continue uploading if so.
I think that’s the reason some people still are “allowed” to use animated avatars. They simply figured out how to change file extension
Still, for me it’s cheesy and totally unprofessional. As the contributors of quality content, we shoud keep it clean. Also, focus on your tracks instead of finding ways to attract people’s attention.
Same here! I just contacted the support team and changed my username from ‘coobek’ to ‘kubawolanin’ I decided to identify myself with my real name.
The only issue I had during that request was my email. You have to contact support by email address used for you Envato account.
Hah, there’s always something worth buying in this business! It’s like a addiction (just read some threads on gearslutz and you’ll get it;)).
I just upgraded my drumset, bought a new laptop (with sweet 16 GB of RAM) and now I’d like to buy a new audio interface (that will allow me to record at least 16 tracks simultaneously), a decent pair of monitors (I think about Adam A5X), new keyboard MIDI controller… I’d stop here now
Rome wasn’t built in one day
Wow, thanks for your valuable replies guys!
I also have hundreds of song ideas and drafts of melodies on a various devices (laptop, mobile phone, notebook etc) but 16 of them are nearly finished as stock music.
BTW. Portable keyboard controller is nice, but recently I’ve been looking for some android apps that allows you to save midi files in the cloud storage (like dropbox etc).
Currently I have 16 scheduled tracks that just wait for my inspiration to come.
I’m wondering how many unfinished song ideas are in your hard drives?
Also, what’s your way to find inspiration?
I somtimes have a writer’s block – you all know what I’m talking about, right?
Looped 8 bars of some catchy idea and… completely don’t know how to make a song from this.
I think that you could take advantage of those ‘not-so-popular’ tracks by submitting them as free file of the month. Or promote them on other tracks sales pages (“You may also like my similar song – Jazzy Skip” or something like that).
Sure, I too have some tracks that doesn’t sound right – especially the first one I submitted But I won’t give up. Resubmitting is also an option – just pimp the mix, add some more hand claps, some ukulele doubles and catchy glockenspiel and you’re ready to go
Wish you much more dude! Keep it up!
You know Mat, I always try to look at the bright side For me selling tracks on AudioJungle is a pure fun – I’m not focusing on money right now.
I make some tunes – I upload them here. If it’s selling well, I’m motivated to push myself forward to make better stock music.
Maybe one day I could focus only on music as my main income source
So, stay optimistic guys! Instead of crying about bad months do something creative!
Pimp your profile page, create some collections for your portfolio, make some videos and upload them to YouTube. There are a plenty of great places on the Internet where you can promote your work. Good luck!
