Great video. Such a positive guy, with just the right attitude :)

It’s great to put a face to an avatar you constantly see around here, even if it’s just through video and not in person :)

Only problem is if i took this shot, i would have position the tower little bit to the right side. (rule of third).

My thoughts as well – too crowded on the left (with tree) so the main subject is “overpowered” in the middle, while right-hand side is completely empty. Probably because of that it got rejected on the grounds of “bad framing” ;)

Take a look at this “affordable” UltraHD TV :)

After taking a few seconds to check out the price, scroll down to the Comments section and have a nice afternoon laugh :)))

NOTE: It just crossed my mind that I might be breaking some forum rules by posting Amazon link. Please know that my only intention with this link was to have fun with fellow VideoHivers :) Mods, feel free to correct me if I did something wrong ;)

I agree, things should be clarified better.

I doubt you want to have a person who complaints about $2 transaction fee as your customer, such people most of the time are really hard to work with and satisfy, and will probably give you a 1 star rating out of nothing.

It is very debatable. On one hand, I totally agree with you, as $2 compared to few dozens of dollars for template is minor difference. However, you have to look at two other aspects of it:
(1) people also bought a lot of sound effects with direct purchase, meaning they pay $1 for SFX and $2 for handling fee, which makes it 3 times higher price than listed! and
(2) since it was an additional fee, buyers may feel like they’ve been cheated/tricked with 2 dollar lower prices which were listed in big bold font, and you must admit – nobody likes to be cheated, especially in business which should be fair.

Although I was receiving a huge percentage of my earnings thanks to the share of handling fee, I will be totally happy to see it completely gone (I hope Envato keeps their promises and fast!), which will hopefully bring more happy buyers.

Hey, I was wondering: what happened with that half-baked update to VideoHive upload form from a few months ago. Is it still in development?

I still have access to it, but is there going to be any more work on it or is it abandoned?

It’s basically flipping things around a bit, so authors will now be advancing to achieve a smaller number of what they are paying to Envato rather than advancing to achieve a higher percentage of what they are keeping off the item price. So in effect, the smaller the number the better. That means you have to pay out less and get to keep more.

I just have to mention that this completely works against Envato’s “gamification” of the marketplaces. I believe it is more in human nature to reach towards higher values than towards lower ones.

Have you ever seen RPG game in which you start off with hundredth level and advance DOWN to the first level? Or a platform game in which you start from the last level and going downwards…?

With all due respect, I have to strongly disagree with your justification of “the smaller the number the better” because psychologically – and that’s what you tried to achieve, better psychological perspective – it is worse. ... Not to mention the great confusion and the added need for us authors to use calculator to recalculate our real earnings percentage whenever we want to know where we stand.
