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.

It’s just tough luck, Ghost. But if you want my opinion, I think you’re overrating the attention that the top new authors list would have brought you.

Make more and better files. Play the long game. That way you’ll get your recognition and sales.
