You can host your tutorial on Youtube, but then you need to create an alternative written help file that you include in main ZIP. The idea is that project can’t be sold without a proper documentation and we have no control over third party sites and services so file can’t be accepted if the only documentation is hosted on youtube or similar service.
Some authors include written help file and then host a detailed tutorial on a third-party service. That is OK, but please remember that written help file should also be comprehensive enough to understand and use the product.
Hell these days you cant even have a hobby with out paying taxes on it
None of this was about not paying taxes. Taxes needs to be paid always. The question was about the inconsistencies in reporting and haste vs benefit ratio if VAT has to be handled on author side.
I always encourage authors to contact support and ask for exception if I see a valid reason for that, but all too often I see submissions like “8sec logo sting with 2 pre-rendered mattes that absolutely can’t manage to fit within the limit”. Those are simply ignorant authors who are too lazy to try another encoding format. usually after the rejection file comes back below 200Mb.
It’s a standard procedure. You have to request your withdrawal by the last date of each month, then it is processed and the actual withdrawal happens on the 15th of next month. So if you requested your withdrawal by the end of October – you will receive the money on November 15thhttps://help.market.envato.com/hc/en-us/articles/202821420-When-will-my-withdrawal-be-processed-
anyway if we really want to be picky, as an author, important documents that concern me needs to be available from my dashboard. envato network is big and I can’t go hunting each day for rules that apply to me.
Well, in fact, they are. In the right column of your dashboard one of the panels is: https://www.dropbox.com/s/ghyfiplq7fn20ke/Screenshot%202014-08-23%2014.29.21.png?dl=0 which links to the knowledge base where all important information and rules are and when new rules like this are introduced there are forum posts and Market blog posts that announces this. I don’t think there is much more Envato could do to make this noticeable.
if you get rejected again for this type of reasons send the reviewers this link http://3docean.net/search?utf8=%E2%9C%93&term=ford+mustang
Not every marketplace is the same when it comes to IP policy. Study this and you’ll quickly learn that there are specific exceptions for each one of them:http://s3.envato.com/resources/legal/product-trademark-help-guideline.pdf
And if you think this is some secret document that no one knows about, then here are links to public posts that links to this:http://notes.envato.com/news/dos-and-donts-about-using-products-and-trademarks-in-your-items/ http://themeforest.net/forums/thread/using-products-and-trademarks-in-your-items/116328 http://notes.envato.com/news/its-for-real-here-we-go-guidelines-on-products-and-trademarks-in-items/ http://support.envato.com/index.php?/Knowledgebase/Article/View/513/0/trademark-use-and-real-world-products
Not sure if you consider me a former top author, but I see that it’s getting harder and harder to compete with the huge amount of projects that comes in daily. it’s just not worth investing a month’s work in a project that gets 50 sales. For the summer I have completely stopped creating new projects and will try to come back with some small projects in the autumn.
i wouldn’t be so happy about those comments. Often times they are plain spam. I’ve seen an item with broken preview that got 8 comments like that in just few minutes. So, clearly no one was able to see the project, but everyone said it’s a great one. I’m not saying your project is not great, but lot of authors are spamming every new submission that gets accepted and what they say in comments usually has no relation to the actual project.
