Hey Envato, pssst, Envato!

You are getting such an amazing, constructive and possibly-successful feedback, yet I see no reply nor reaction towards it.

Please, read it:


I think you’ve been bitten by the Google bug – irrationalization! Those clowns are doing off the wall stuff as well!

You did an in-depth analysis – coming to the conclusion that it is not being utilized – fair enough. You naturally have two options. Remove it, or spin it and make it profitable.

Beings as a number of posters here are asking what is BB, my suggestion would be better marketing!

Your biggest pitfall to the Bargain Basement is the name itself. I tend to think of items in the BB as “garage/yard/rummage sale” items. Crap nobody else wants, second rate, low class, not worth normal market prices. Call it a stigma. And beings as the BB is “hidden”, I think Envato also thinks it’s a stigma. I don’t mean disrespect to anyone whose items are in there, or purchased items from there. I’ve got an item or two I could toss in there as well – as I’m about to remove them from the MP anyways.

Give the BB a more positive name, apply minimal marketing (ie: stop hiding it and treating it as a stigma) – everyone comes out ahead.

I don’t understand why reviewers are needed in the process. If the item is already active, why does it need to be reviewed again? Obviously authors want to make every penny they can for their work, so I imagine, it’s with sorrow, that an author places the item in the bin. You could easily build an algorithm that will accept/reject BB items based on a ratio of longevity and sales; but instead, the dev team is beating the crap out of the market place style sheets – more proof of the Google Bug!

c’est la vie

p.s. Does this mean the review times will speed up for new marketplace items beings as the reviewers have less workload? Just curious.

Crozer, thanks for the feedback. I’ve been reading this thread since the beginning. While I won’t always comment on every thread, don’t think I’m not reading them :)

you should build a script that after one or two days will post a message on every thread like this:

“We are envato. We are watching you. Resistance is futile.” :evilgrin:

That’s exactly what i thought for the very beginning.
