There is a lot of detail in the notes post about the reset that should be helpful.

TL/DR:

Oh no! I got locked out of my account – what should I do?

http://www.envato.com/careers/open-jobs —There are no open jobs for the AudioJungle market at the moment.

Yup. This.

Keep an eye on the jobs page. There’s a lot of growth and hiring going on at the moment, so something might come up.

P.S. – if anyone is a Ruby developer who can work in Melbourne, Australia we’re very keen to talk to you :)
Well I am going to be right back!!!! Going to buy Ruby for Dummies edition! :D

Hi all! I remember some time ago there were problems with search and the authors were welcomed to post any problems they saw (with particular examples). Today I tried searching some of my own items and found that for instance if I type ’... mockup’ different items show up than if I type ’...mock-up’. This was a surprise for me since now I have to think twice before naming my items. And It didn’t matter what I’ve put as tags or in description. In one case my item showed up and in the other one, it didn’t.

This doesn’t seem right since only one symbon in the name is different.

Should I open a ticket or can anyone from the staff help me here?

Thanks!

I’ll pass that on and make sure it gets looked at.

Seems like something we can address with the way the search terms with hyphens are analyzed.

Ok good. I look forward to it. Thanks for the response.

You can wander over to the thread on Co-design with us on our faceted search project, and add this as a suggestion as it isn’t already.

As @KingDog said, we don’t have that yet :(


At least there is a trick (according to Envato API documentation) you can use to refine your search: For instance, this search query:
parallax | and | (blue | or | green) 

will search for ‘parallax’ and ‘blue’ or ‘green’

It’s not straightforward, but it can help refining the search.

That applies for searches done via the API, not the main site search (they use slightly different code paths, and apply the query term differently)

@madlep

Sorry, maybe I misread this part for the $2m mark

“Access to a special Power Elite annual report about sales trends on the Envato Marketplaces”

http://elite.envato.com/ That said I don’t think anyone has reached the $2m mark yet.

Ah true, yes there is that. Not sure what that report contains, but being annual there is still a time lag in terms of what is selling on the marketplaces right now.

There aren’t many on $2m+, but there are a handful. No one is on $5m+ as far as I know.

I may be wrong but I believe this sort of data is only made available to top authors which kind of gives those doing well even more of an edge.

Elite authors get access to Google Analytics for just their own item pages – not the whole marketplace.

So they can see what traffic is coming in to their pages, where it came from (including marketplace search terms) and have some idea of how long people spend there etc.

But they don’t see global things like top search terms or anything that doesn’t result in a user visiting their page.

I usually check how the search works with the simple “Clouds” search.

For me result looks about the same as previously (and worse vs. before all these updates few month back). “Snow” item is still on the first place and no my previously good selling “Clouds” items on the first page. Currently my best selling item named “Clouds” on the fifth page. Above it so many snow, planes, moons, etc irrelevant to clouds items.

Looks like category name is still too much affecting search results.

Fixing sales boosts is on the way as part of the “secret sauce” stuff :) Not deployed yet though. Probably in the next few weeks.

At the moment it’s normalised based on the highest selling items on any marketplace – which happen to be on themeforest.net with some items getting 10,000s of sales. The effect of that though, is that on sites like videohive.net , where 100s of sales are more common, the sales count boost is so small it’s almost non-existent.

Fix will be to just look at the items in the search results, and normalise sales count boosting based on that.

So that should make the “clouds” query behave a bit better.

It’s a mix of a reversal, and page caching.

The popular items page is generated once a week, and shows data as it was at the point in time when it was generated. If there is a reversal after that, the item updates, but the popular items page doesn’t.

It is a bug, so I’ll make sure it’s on our list to fix. Probably not super high priority though.
