Just got my new black paw added to my badges collection ..
Thanks alot guys.. this is such an awesome community.. really learned alot from you guys, and i wish success to all of you
i think recently, the GFX piracy site has become really hostile, because they are actually making good money out of our labor, via getting refferal money by making people sign up to wearz servers sites ..
During May.. anytime i post a new flyer, i would find it on those sites within 1 or 2 days maximum.. !!! also alot of other authors files had only one sale, and that was enough to get the item on such sites!!
so I’m wondering what Envato are actually doing to stop this ? ... besides banning talking about how piracy sites are affecting our sales on the forums!!!!...
i really think they should do more.. maybe banning the IP of the user who is stealing the items ? i really dont know.. but this is getting really ridiculous !!
10 days ago we decided to leave users affiliated link, but in order to be able to keep this change we need users support to tweet more about their work, to link from their blogs to their psdbucket profile and to their work, to leave comments to other users work and so on . In less words, if you want to be helped by the community, you should sustain community also !
just noticed your comment.. and i was wondering.. how can i add my ref-link to my items ? some of my items had the reflink already and now its back .. thank you .. but some of them was submitted without a reflink, and i just want to add my reflink to those items as well..
Ok so you guys all know…I’ve worked with a couple of people…photographers, and isolators (including me).......so a new site should be up an running by the mid of june, for Flyer designers, or anything else….we will provide you guys with free resources including (models,stocks,isolated speakers,microphones,disco balls, stars, palm trees, etc…basically everything to get a flyer going)...we’re currently in the works of deciding wheter we should let everyone in to download the resources or make it a private forum/blog, where only registered can download it, and enjoy it.

EliIsakov, could you send me your site link mate ? i think might contribute some freebies
if it wasn’t for the 2 seasonal flyers i had “Euro 2012, cinco de mayo” May would have been a slow month for me.. but with those 2 I think im going to brake my personal best this month
but I’m %100 with wowdg.. i think recently the GFX wearz sites are aggressively stealing GR items, which is resulting in low sales for everybody
i think you made a good point Adam..
but now this means that graphic river admins should remove every flyer with an asset from officialpsds.. and i know that almost %35 of flyers either have this famous disco ball http://officialpsds.com/Discoball-High-Res-PSD62831.html or this speaker http://www.officialpsds.com/speaker-2-PSD42324.html ..
or is it that the authors who already posted a flyer that includes such assets, actually got away with it ?
@EliIsakov, thanks for the tip, just messaged the authors..
@JeromeCollinge i think you are right.. i usually do my assets on 3ds max, and sometime i buy extended licenses of stock photos, so maybe i should not rely on psd sites that much..
True, sometimes i buy extended licenses of photos that i think i’ll use in more than one flyer.. but it was just a good thing to have official psds as an option, since sometimes you would find elements on officialpsds that are hard to find on a stock photos site..
