Who knew? StudioMonkey is a Star Wars Pod Racer! :)

Oh that’s funny! If you’re going to move cross-country from New Jersey to Seattle, there’s only one way to travel! :D

I just swung by to say that this thread reminded me of all those years when everyone wanted a price rise and it took a while to get there but we finally got there. :) Plus, I haven’t seen a thread on pricing in a little while so just brought back some (fond?) memories. :)

On a more serious note and if I remember correctly, I think I am right in remembering that some of the top AJ authors had an opportunity to slightly increase the item prices of their top selling tracks as a price trial but this might have just been a test run for the current (latest) prices. If it wasn’t, and the prices were higher than they are today, perhaps Envato and the authors realized that the current price was the sweet spot. Long story short – I think the current price point, coupled with the changes made to licensing, seems to have been well received by many.

Stockwaves mentioned audio services on Envato Studio: I think it’s just a matter of time before it appears on there but you’re absolutely right, will be another tremendous opportunity for composers, producers, and musicians here alike to find more work, make new connections, and make more income. Good times!

I always wondered why you never used your real face in your avatar but I stand corrected! That IS your real face! :D Great photo by the way. :) Good luck with the move, StudioMonkey, come back and share a picture of your brand new setup once you’ve had chance to move all your gear in!

Coincidentally, I am wearing my Seattle Sounders soccer jersey today so funny that you’re moving to Seattle! Bon voyage and safe travels! Or just “safe travels” if bon voyage also means “safe travels”. Otherwise, what I just said was, “Safe travels and safe travels!” which makes almost as little sense as me going back to explain it all. ;)

Could you please open a support ticket about it, please? I have a horrible feeling that items that were approved around the time that the marketplaces went down are being affected by this. Sorry for the inconvenience. :(

There are still on-going DDoS attacks unfortunately. It’s very frustrating, we’re really sorry for the downtime which is out of our hands but is being dealt with diligently by our dedicated dev team. As of right now, everything appears to be back to normal. All I can recommend is:

Again, really sorry for the outages, I think it’s been a while since we’ve had one as long as the one from this morning. I certainly can’t remember one this long in all the time I’ve been here.

Meanwhile, looks like it’s not just Envato Market that’s been having downtime this week either, it can obviously happen to anyone at any time! ;)

Yeah, it’s really frustrating, we’re really sorry for the downtime which is out of our hands and being dealt with diligently by our dedicated dev team. :( Be sure to follow us on Twitter via https://twitter.com/envatomarket for the very latest info, but pertaining to the outage, Nat’s comms from yesterday still apply (unfortunately) so any periodic and temporary outages right now are all due to the same issue:

@zlatkosan1 > Regarding your mockup (this item, right?) it was in the wrong category. I just moved it to Product Mockups for you.

Is there no way to tell who has previously had a trending item and give them a badge?

Please see our FAQs on this page.

“We’re still investigating the logistics of retroactively awarding the Trendsetting badge and we’ll have a better idea by the end of July. As of right now, the Trendsetting badge will be awarded to authors who have brand new Trendsetting items from June 30th onwards.”

Good! I would have preferred a clean slate for all new badges actually. Now no badge-earning motivation to hit the top sellers list again.

Don’t worry, David, there will be more motivation in the future I can assure you! I think there has to be motivation for authors at every level, new, old, those with few sales, those with thousands of sales, and so forth. So I definitely think all levels of expertise, experience and success should be catered for in the long run.

We can only release a certain number of new badges at a time but we hope to add more on an on-going basis.

Hi Scott,

Weekly Top seller is already awarded ? I have around 10 weekly top seller items since 2013. One of my item is still in the top seller page .

See : http://themeforest.net/popular_item/by_category?category=marketing

But I didn’t get any Badge!!!! :(

Hi Surjith! Badges are awarded for items/authors on the main Poplar items page, not sub categories (you linked to a Marketing subcategory).
