So again, a huge congrats to you PZ, I am excited for you! When I get some more time, you better believe I’m going to be trying to get it back :)

Thanks, Tim! I really appreciate it. I totally agree with you that as we collectively make AJ a stronger marketplace by continuously improving the music selection it benefits us all by making AJ appealing to more buyers.

I look forward to when you get some time to bring more of your musical magic to AJ. When that time comes it’ll be on like Donkey Kong! :)

Hey, thanks everyone! And to think I only had to produce 6 times as much music as Tim to catch up with him on the list. LOL

Soundroll is still the king of sales around here and will be for quite a long time with his 55,000 (and counting) sales. Tim is still the king of the hits with his amazing sales-per-item ratio. I’m just trying to find another path to success and having fun building my portfolio with a little bit of this and a little bit of that. :)

Thanks for the thread GreenAudio! And now back to the music…

I hear that! Thanks for the response KingDog, I know it’s an issue that’s weighing heavily on the minds of many authors here.

Yep. Been checking this thread regularly looking for an official update addressing the many concerns here.

Hi KingDog. It’s not that the faceted search is missing within individual portfolios (although I hope the faceted search eventually makes its way to individual portfolios). It’s that the existing sorting options that have always been there and are still visually there are not functioning.

When I look at any individual portfolio (not the faceted search) I am unable to sort in any way. Not by sales, title, etc. The sorting options are there but the function does not work.

Anyone else have this problem?

This is a great step forward for sure! I look forward to when additional options are added to enhance the drill-down abilities beyond the basic pre-existing categories on AudioJungle.

Searching by track length is needed, but however that is implemented definitely needs to address the fact that longer tracks could have shorter versions included in the zip – can’t leave out those! Perhaps checkboxes are needed in the item edit page for :30 and :60 edits?

Also, add me to the list of those hoping the faceted search will soon work within authors’ individual portfolios. Great work :)

Add me to the list of those concerned that these implied changes in Envato’s financial policies could have dire consequences.

Envato’s proposed policy would make tax reporting irreconcilable in the US. I cannot fathom how US authors will be able to reconcile the fact that Envato’s 1099 will show more earnings than we actually received. The IRS will want to receive taxes based on Envato’s 1099. How will simply a statement from Envato showing that author fees were “paid” to them be a satisfactory explanation for the IRS? In reality, no money will be sent directly from any author to Envato for these fees. How can we write them off as expenses when we did not actually pay them?

Regarding the commission issue, Envato has always behaved as the seller and the authors received a commission. I do not understand why Envato is changing the game and saying that the rules have not changed. Envato behaves like the seller and is in control of the whole process. To add to the long list others have presented to demonstrate that Envato is the seller, we can add that Envato also controls the refunds.

The fears over who may be responsible for past sales taxes are enough to take your breath away. Some of the things the European authors are credibly claiming here regarding VAT are just mind-boggling at this point. This perceived crisis needs to be resolved sooner rather than later.

There have been many welcome changes on AudioJungle this year and Envato has a great history of supporting its community of authors, so I am trusting that the coming days will shed some light on these concerns. Don’t leave people hanging for weeks while all kinds of theories start to take shape.

Thanks very much, everyone! Although I have to admit that Soundroll was the first to reach this milestone with his two accounts. Love the Spinal Tap reference, Phil :)

Onward, everyone!
