I don’t see any reason to punish people further besides sending out that rejection email.
Because that way we’re dealing with outcome not with cause/source.
But I agree – it’s not the same for all marketplaces. I’m coming from VideoHive which is somewhere in middle between GraphicRiver and ThemeForest (calculating by time it takes to prepare a submission).
Even if this is not changing anything major in how authors are evaluated – at least i hope it would rise awareness in authors to think twice before creating/submitting. Also it could give some ideas to developers if something like this is going to be implemented sometime.
well it would be normal for new authors to miss the quality level, but I’m more concerned here about authors that has 20+ submissions and half or even most of them don’t make it through.
It’s a bit hard to point out some low quality examples because there are no trends in them. They’re just random files with poor or no concepts behind them.
Going through the queues and seeing a lot of low quality files i was wondering how to improve this.
Approved/rejected files ratio for each author should be taken into account. There are some authors with this ratio being 50:50 or even more than 50 for rejected files. Seams that authors like that just upload whatever junk comes into mind hoping to get through. in reality this slows down review queues for everyone because reviewers has to go through those files, point out the reasons and sometimes even arguing with the authors. If this ratio would be monitored and taken into account when some important decisions are made (like author ratings, commission rates, possibility to get featured etc) authors would think twice before submitting junk.
Just submitted my monthly invoice to Envato and realised it’s number 12. So exactly today: 1st of July is one year since I started as a reviewer here.
More than 3100 items in this past year. Learned a lot from the authors. Gained huge experience. Learned patience and learned to count to 10 before typing something bad as a response to angry authors. Experienced a great respect and met humble authors that are ready to keep learning even after 10 files got rejected in a row. Still trying to find balance between those who would like to see only Top notch items accepted on Video Hive and those who are still learning to create items like that. Thank you Envato for this great opportunity and thank you everyone for this friendship we’ve built.
Please excuse me if my rejection message has hurt you some time. That is for your own benefit. You’ll understand that one day.
well my case was really strange. File was marked as CS3 . When I opened it with CS4 it gave the usual CS3 file in AE CS4 message. then it gave few errors. Some were about having parts of CS5 project in this file which is impossible because you can’t import CS5 content into project file using AE CS3 . and at the end it gave this strange situation error. after clicking OK After Effects just freeze.
Got it today while reviewing.
Thanks guys. Either it was what BoostShock sent or really similar to that one. Anyways. Thank you.
While we’re still waiting for search system overhaul I’ll use human search because the one built in our site is not working properly. or I can’t get it to work properly.
Can anyone of you point me to a particle logo reveler where particles formed Envato logo and then dropped on the ground and were flowing away like water or water bubbles. i remember seeing this file but can’t find it at the moment. I thought it was from UniqueFx but can’t find it in his portfolio either.
keywords would be: particles, drop, flow, physics or gravity, logo reveler.
Not to tricky at all really.. As soon as I opened the URL chrome told me it was a phising site.
well yes, at the moment FF also says the same, because this site were reported as such. when i first opened it there were no warnings. that’s why I reported it to Adobe and spread the word and hopefully others did the same.
