I was sent a polite message from Envato asking me to change some links. Completely understandable.
If you run a business, and your employees are telling clients go across the street for more similar deals . . . well, let’s just say that’s not a very good operating policy.
Those employees should be told the policy regarding referring clients to other outlets.
Makes complete sense.
TanyDi saidwere you sent a message asking you to remove the links before being disabled? Just curious.
Based on my experience from the end of September when i was disabled for 4 days I want to prevent many authors from disabling.
Sorry about my late answer, I’ve got pc problems. The story began with an item held by the reviewer for about 10 days. I sent a ticket to the support and then i received an email with reasons > in my help file i have 2 links , to my portfolio here and to my store, also I had a link to my store in metadata. The reviewer wrote in the email that i have to remove all links in my files….in all existing files. So i began to update items immediately ( 20 days later I continue to update cos I have lots of items ) but my main mistake was that I didn’t remove the button linking to my store from my profile page. There was only simple text on the button, just tanydi store. A few days later I was disabled and received an email about this. I confirmed immediately that I’ll remove all self promotional links from my items and profile page but the respond came after 4 days.
I added the link to my store about 2 months ago but before that I saw lots of profile pages in Envato with similar links and that’s why I did it. But everything is my fault cos I had to remove link from my profile page first of all. After my disablement i found an email in my spam folder sent before about that I must remove self promotional link from every where but it was very late. I felt awful these 4 days when I had no answer from the staff and I was afraid. But I really don’t want this to happen to anyone that’s why I started this thread.
