I have followers but I am only allowed to see the last 9. I have followed lots of folks but again I can only see the last 9. I never receive any sort of notification that someone I follow has released a new item or any news at all.
So, what good are followers and following?
Is the only benefit the number that displays?
Does the number of followers I have somehow play into my items being ranked better in search results?
the arcane mysteries of envato. the followers list is a feature they worked on at some moment but left half baked.
you can see the items released by people you follow on the homepage in the 3×3 box on the right of the page.
Its vanity really.
But if you follow an author, their updates appear on the home page.
You see the new approved items of authors you follow on the start page of AJ. Looks like the following-system is a service for customers to find the newest tracks of their favourite authors quickly.
Ah, thanks all. I missed that because I never start at the home page! I suspect many (most?) authors do not. My bookmark is for my profile or my dashboard.
If I was a reviewer I would rejected because does not meet envato current quality requirements.
The way is working now don’t make any sense, if envato in the near future don’t have intentions to improve it, it would be better to delete it.
