There you go, now there’s a statue of our querido veterano in the front page for ages to come :)

I’m a celebrity!!! Thanks MSVoy, there’s some decent subliminal promotion going on there and it makes me feel all warm inside, just like the grey viscous soup the nurses feed me on Mondays.

I like the way this kind of threads always end. A reviewer says his word and everybody congratulate him, system is working!

Or you could say that he provided a bunch of useful tips in an article that a lot of people, myself included, will benefit from for a while. Gareth also gave a good explanation for why the track was rejected, so I think Gae47 has got a quite a few things he can take away from the comments. What’s ‘systematic’ about providing useful info?

Great tutorial Gareth, lots of useful tips for strings there – using some already, but interesting to read your thoughts on layering. Anywhere else that’s worth looking at for layering tutorials?

This is just a general comment from the 2.5 years or so I’ve been trading here and 5 years as a member, but I think it would be particularly motivating and a sign of respect if there was some kind of loyalty scheme in place at Envato for authours that stay here for extended periods of time. I’ve lost quite a bit of ‘oomph’ over the last year or so with AJ because of things feeling pretty static despite my efforts to kickstart my geriatric A-game.

I know there’s an incentive with the earnings percentage which rises with the amount you’ve sold for exclusive members, but as a non-exclusive member who has ‘weathered many storms’ here, there’s not too much going on for us other than a badge showing how ancient we are. Oh, there was that community superstar badge I was given that was drawn in disappearing ink, but as much as a badge is great, it’s not really helping pay the bills.

As staff read all forums posts (I’m told), it would be great if you would pass this on to Collis and get him to add me to the ‘affluent authour group’ as I’m one of the old guys and we also need some loving (as well as having our adult nappies changed, dribbly chin wiped and being fed mushy food).

Thanks,

Taco

Lame sales. So lame it’s leaving me lamentably lame.

Lame :tired:

Yep, I also confirm that there’s a massive deep freeze on sales over the Summer months. And +1 Alumo on the grand drop off over the last six months, something very detrimental has definitely taken place on all marketplaces since January (and possibly even Novermber 2013 if I look at my stats). Going exclusive here would only be viable if my earnings increased significantly. I’m keen (also to simplify my admin), but certainly not with my current sales range…

Is correct.
This is anything, but not royalty free.

It’s amazing how misinformation spreads like wildfire in this place, this is turning into a game of Chinese Whispers.

No, you are NOT forcing customers to show ads, you are asking them to show a proof of purchase to remove them.

If they have bought the track (here or elsewhere if you’re non-exclusive), it’s a simple process to remove the ad. If they haven’t bought the music, then the ad stays on or they remove the video.

Royalties is a completely different issue. This is a question about a system running adverts on YouTube, not the royalties system where you make money each time your music is broadcast on a TV channel for example.

SkylineAudio, I agree people need to be informed before making a decision about these things, but it should be correct information, don’t you agree?
