The rules were something you could’ve easily figured in advance…
You keep writing things such as “Fair chance” , “Weird system” , and “I figured everybody had a fair shot” its just pretty hard for me to sit still, even though this is one of those times it would’ve been better to do so, here’s a question:
Is it really that hard to take responsibility for your own actions and say: “Damn, I should’ve read or asked around before I rushed to compete in a game of which rules I did not know?” Then look at the bright side and think “Oh well, it least this made me rush and create a bigger amount of items that will sell much more in the future…”
asking in the forum almost a month after your first upload & sale does NOT justify any sort of an accusing tone towards Envato. Surely, the system has flaws just like any system does, in your case – it isn’t one of them.
wow I don’t blame anybody…and it is a weird system that keeps scores and let you “play” for 2 days.
When I signed in to VideoHive I didn’t care about being a top new author..it accrued to me later when I noticed it…it was too late…
so yeah I don’t blame any user nor Envato…it just sucks.
