I am a member since Jan.’09 and always like using your marketplaces to learn and get inspiration, I am noticing that lately a lot of items are marked ‘unavailable’ in my downloads. On my first download page 9 (of the 20) items are unavailable…
Is there a reason this is happening more often lately?
May be authors think they are outdated.
May happen with any item at any time so make sure you download them after purchase
When you say first page, do you mean the most recent downloads? New items being removed would be more of a problem than very old items being removed.
If its your oldest items you purchased thats not too odd. Envato doesn’t promote old items, so theres almost no reason for authors to maintain/update them after a certain period because the sales drop(unless theres external marketing or its a “hit” ). It makes more sense for an author to focus on on building/supporting newer products than updating older ones
