I am looking over some of the older files and they have hundreds of sales and hundreds of comments as well… I dont get it, what has changed?

Yeah, this is really sad. ActiveDen is slowly dying. Everyone can see that. We need immediate actions to bring it where it was. Switch to paid author system. Raise the bar as much as you can. Delete some of the older files. That’s it. It will be the best marketplace again.

I personally think maybe code canyon has killed Activeden sales :(

Similar apps can be found there that don’t require any knowledge of Flash, also many buyers probably see Flash as bad for SEO and would therefore prefer to purchase something made in Javascript or with PHP .

Look at the current files on the frontpage of Code Canyon just two of them between them have sold 50 times
