yes, you need to “outperform” other items from “files we don´t need”.
but your mistake is the same as mine, i thought “outperform” means better/ higher quality. That is not the case – “worst” quality is needed, that means “outperform”.
go on the first site of graphicriver homepage/ home and you see the newest “items” which “outperform” – like easter eggs – made in one minute, which nobody, never buys. that is what is needed.
take only the last 100 items, which are reviewed and think about yourself, which schoolnotes you would give them? 1-6? more then 50% of them are 4-6 – otherwise you need glasses…
Apparently i am a new author.
In the different posts about the queue reviewing updates from the stuff members i read all the time “thank you” from different authors. I am really not sure, if i want to write thank you for an update post, which is quite natural?
So, thank you for what?
Thank you… you didn´t solve the problem, but you try your best – and that is not much?
Or, maybe the real reason is:
Thank you… you didn´t solve the problem, but i want to be polite? Ok, i understand that. Thank you…you didn´t solve the problem, but the number of reply posts in my profil are growing? That, I also understand.
As a new author i never thought my first post is something like this, but i wait now 3 days to get my little presentation item reviewed. And as I read the different posts and terms from envato it could take in a bad case 11-18 days.
Is that acceptable in the year 2013? No, it is not.
Envato needs more time for the reviewing then the author needs for designing, developing and profing his own item.
Is that economically minded? Obvisiosly not.
Authors have a deeply understanding, that there are so much artists/ items which envato gets every day. And as a serious Company they need to proof all carefully, thats for sure – to make the marketplace unique. But why it takes till 18 days?
The reason is simple: To much items vs. to less Envato reviewers. More reviewers = more cost = less money for Envato.
Is a new Author interested in that Envato problem? No, he is not.
Staff posts like: Envato hires one new reviewer…Congratulations Envato! But how much new reviewers you need to get your job done in 1-2 days? Or maybe…don´t be afraid about the word: realtime?
To make it clear – Envato gets 50% of a 100% third-party product (forget the 70% that is only marketing, you can reach that level, but how much authors get that? under 1%..).
So envato take 50% of the money and have to do two jobs:
1. offering a platform with a lot of viewers to sell items fast and easy. 2. proofing the items in a fair time.
are 7 days, 9 days, 18 days – fair? I think not.
So from two jobs – envato have done – ONLY ONE…
ps: for that guys, which want to write – you dont need to take the envato platform: yes, i need to use this marketplace- i humble myself like a lot of other authors here – cause there is no alternative – with so much viewers, which buy fast – but that is the only reason – THE ONLY ONE.
And maybe there comes a time, an american or canadien competitor will grow their community on the same level – and i can promise you like OZ – like a miracle the prices go down, more money for authors, less reviewing time and faster payment…(envato get the money from paypal in one second – work on the stockmarket with that money, get interests and pay the money one month later to the authors and their argument is: all must be proofen and thats only efficient way).
my name is sunu and i am new on envato.
i read the agb and the “clarification about licence” from envato. but how such things work in practice? especially if you give the costumer all “basic-files” like .psd or you make a powerpoint template?
on 01. april you put it online -> somebody buy it for 20$ -> change colors, size, and some other changings and SAVE IT A NEW file – and on the same day you have a second powerpoint template from another artist.
how can i verify, that this template was mine? please dont tell me its only the date…you put it online first, so it must be yours…. that cant be a basic to verify copyrights?
how that work in the practise? how you handle that?
ps: i dont have much experience in such cases and i don´t want to be unpolite in my first thread, but if i check .psd/ powerpoint/ html/css/wordpress themes – here on envato – then it seems – that it is a common practice to “buy” cheap – items “change” the files and “resell” it again – without punishing. cause it is not possible for the “copyrighter” or envato to detect – is that the same item or not.
and the licence agreement + terms and conditions are nice to read, but really somebody (artist) take care of it?
