I’m not asking for anything more than this, because I give the benefit of the doubt. Not everyone knows the rules. I know is author duty to know them but since till now rules were split in many locations and even in thin air (unwritten rules :) ) it may happen to not know them. It depends of author history of rule infringements off course but a heavy approach is never a good choice.

+1 No need for heavy punishments. Remove the parts of the description that infringe the rules and notify the author that this is not allowed. If that is not possible, soft-disable the item and the author can get it back online after he made the necessary changes to the description.

I think both cases are fair. Even if the soft-disable results in less exposure, it is up to the author how long it takes to get it back online.

Do you realize that we are now hijacking your thread because Doru’s thread about that topic got closed?

maybe move all these comments to the locked thread because for my part this debate is done.

will give one week to see if anything changes and if not will create a new thread to clarify if what we are talking about is allowed after all

If you go too much in details that might be locked, too. Sounds unfair and like censorship, but moderators and staff in forums are following rules – even if those kind of contradict with the decisions made by support (no action taken).

The problem is then more the “no action taken” part, than the “is it allowed?” part, because the latter is already answered with “no it is not allowed”.

I’m trying to figure out what links with referral are guys are talking about… Is this about “voicerabbit”? http://themeforest.net/forums/thread/affiliate-links-in-item-description/136650 This 2 month old thread has some direct answers yet one of videohive’s highest selling item (that is also being promoted on envato market’s main page) clearly violates this rule… As 2 months have passed, either no one cares or staff just lets it slide through because it sells well?

yes is the rabbit website with ads on item page promising 20% discount.

that page had been verified by staff couple of hours ago presumably. how they can’t see this issue?

not only is a referral link but that website is a competitor of envato having a marketplace similar with audiojungle

Guys, I don’t mean to be rude, this thread is about censorship and locking threads, not to debate support issues, Doru, if support didn’t complete their job, mail them again! Some links may be hidden by the author or not removed by him afterwards!
