Bundles gives Envato good extra earnings and traffic. Final dot.
Further discussions is just wasted energy.
A “Print Designer” bundle with 3 ThemeForest items also a wasted energy for authors (indirectly) – if we do not pin point these things to Envato and if the next immediate bundle includes another 3 ThemeForest items that doesn’t related to Holiday – the time and energy needed on these complaints becomes unavoidable, regardless of if staff can understand these or not.
Also we are not requesting Envato to stop taking profit. If they make profit without affecting regular sales numbers and value of our work, no one going to complain. Just a matter of strategy preference/choice.
Agreed! Until one day competition arrives and it always does.

VF saidRamesh, we both have been here for long, if i resume all the “pin points to Envato” authors have done over the time, i can fill up an entire book with them. Don’t waste your precious energy.
(...) – if we do not pin point these things to Envato and if the next …
True, I have a schedule to stop spending time here. Man, thanks for reminding though.
crozer saidyeah i got it…trust me envato shared enough information with us in the past about bundle releases and why and so on, this time wont be different…got it?
Stay on point, will you? This is about the community asking Envato to share more information with us authors, and a critique towards the methodology of running a bundle all too often. Got it? Now stop saying somebody is criticizing bundles themselves, because no one is.
I wasn’t talking to you.
In no way are we planning to have a weekly or daily Bundle (I would probably die of stress if we did). We are still refining and learning about the Bundle process as we go and will definitely be taking on board your suggestions about including different authors. As always, thanks for having your say.
Carmen, with the first Bundle release few years ago i can exactly remember one of the staff members commented “In no way are we planning to have other than the Birthday Bundle”...but see where we are now. I hate to say it but (yeah again), i strongly believe the days of weekly bundle releases at envato are not that far.
