Yeah me too I really want badges. I was lucky one of my file was included in the Birthday Bundle 2013 but the badge is still not up in my profile. :)

There is no need to be overly concerned about this. The reason everyone desires to be featured is to actualize more sales. Just focus on creating more items (ask Jack already said).

In my opinion, ‘Featured Author’ is based on luck and if the person in charge of the selection favors you. There is no trick or requirements. If it is about merit, many awesome authors that have contributed a lot for this community would have been featured.

There was an Elite author who created a thread about this and was featured after that. If the selection is by merit/contribution/achievement/years of authorship, he should have been featured a long time ago. So my advice is, don’t waste your time thinking about it.

yes, there’s not enough space for everyone. :) we are thousands of authors vs limited featured space.

I’m just happy to be here!

Besides that, all new tracks get posted on the front page. Usually stay there for around 1/2 a day. That usually nabs me 1-2 sales per piece, so I’m happy with that.

Guys, you can keep the badges, I’ll keep the money. :bigsmile: – On a serious note, I don’t think the Featured Item is a random lottery, but since the amount of files being send every day/week is huge it’s unlikely they will be ever able to feature anyone who should be. My suggestion is to forget the all featured thing and focus on your projects, by doing that you increase the chance of being featured.

There is a little lotery but mostly it’s sales count, sales per item, sales per month, average ratings, regularity of new items and may be some other criterias as mentioned above.

BTW you may use kind of rough estimation based on your rating in the top authors list. For example for VH as I see there are 9 not yet featured authors in the top 100 authors http://videohive.net/author/top_authors so if you have 3000+ sales (today) there is a 90% chance to be featured.

if you check top 50 VH author there is only one not featured author (really bad luck?) so it’s only 2% chance not to be featured after 5000+ sales today.

I don’t want to check and count on other pages but I assume with 1000+ sales chance to be featured is like 10-20% as of today so be patient! :-)

Best Regards, Andrey
