In the promotion guidelines, the Extended License Changes link doesn’t work.
How dare they release a new blog and break that old link. Thanks so much, VF! Here’s the link for now and we’ll fix the link in the article later today.http://marketblog.envato.com/general/extended-license-changes-part-1/
Hello fellow authors! We’ve just released a new article to our Knowledgebase along with an update to an existing article as we try to improve guidelines for all authors and provide more helpful information and answers to common questions we receive. Here’s what’s new!
If anyone has suggestions or questions not already covered in either of these articles, we’d be glad to consider them in a future update so please don’t hesitate to let us know in this thread!
doru saidAbsolutely correct, doru:
I think the trending algorithm is automatic based on various factors,can staff confirm this?
“How does it work? We measure the level of “excitement” that we think the community shows for each item within a specified period of time – as buyers interact with an item, by viewing it, purchasing it or rating it highly, we accumulate these interactions into a level of measured excitement that tracks changes over time. We’re able to calculate the “trending-ness” of an item by looking at how excitement levels have increased or decreased recently, and translating this into a score which we can use to compare items with each other. Items which have seen a rapid growth in excitement in a short period of time will be displayed with a “Trending” indicator when seen in search and can be filtered within search results.”
1. I have got trend icons from VH stuff. Im glad for this.What can i do???
2. I add to trend icon to my thumbnail, because this not visible in my profile page.
3. Now, VH stuff remove my trend icon and my file looks like fake.
Congratulations on achieving a trending item, therealist, that’s awesome! As our other members have already stated however and as per my previous response here, you can’t artificially add the trending sash to your thumbnails manually. It’s not permitted even if your item IS trending. This is because the trending state can change based on buyer interest and popularity. Allow the dynamic awarding of the trending sash to always dictate whether an item is currently trending.
The very nature and meaning of the word “trending” is that it may dip in and out of trend and it’s not a permanent state. Furthermore, trending pertains to search results right now, not anywhere else. I understand what you’re saying however, I think you make an interesting point. The Search Team could consider applying the trending sash dynamically (when an item is trending) throughout the site – portfolio pages included. There may be reasons why they may not wish to pursue this, but if it hasn’t been shared with the Search Team before, I’ll pass this along to them. Thanks so much for the feedback!
Smartik saidOMG, already? Some people are way too fast to “hack” the system… :/
I see people cheating the thumbnail Right now you can’t see the diference, if browsing in grid format. Here is an example:
Thanks so much for catching and sharing that, smartik / urbazon. Just a note/reminder that this is prohibited. I just updated A step-by-step guide to the upload process to make it more clear. The update says:
Thumbnail > “You are also not permitted to artificially add any official Envato Market graphical assets to your thumbnails, e.g. community badges or trending assets. This is considered “gaming the system” and works against our terms and conditions.”
While we hope this helps clarify guidelines for all authors, please don’t hesitate to contact Support (not in the forums please) if you see/hear of any authors breaking this guideline. I will also personally see to it that they go to bed without any supper.
