Thanks for the Facebook post Envato. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9S-RHXlsjyY It’s good to hear about the latest developments; nice to see people with names we know too, especially our Community Man, Scott
Thanks, Joanne! It’s a pleasure that my team and I can represent you all!
We hope everyone likes the video and the little ‘nuggets’ of information we’ve dropped into it. There’s a little more information about the video over on our blog, Envato Notes, check it out!
Great video, i’m so glad I saw scottwills and others in the video, Thanks for share
And now we know who to blame if sales will drop after the new search engine implementation
I’m very glad envato strongly point out in this video how important the community (author and buyers) are for the company. As said for the previous video update, this format is nice don’t stop.
For the author side of the community I will like for envato to find a solution to the sale reversal and also be more involved in helping authors fight the piracy. This means staff who knows this shady side of our business and can actively help authors fight this problem. We know there is no perfect solution but if one act fast he can minimize damage. This can be simple as monitoring certain key websites and taking action to bring down links as soon as they show up.
Is also a nice surprise that the developers featured in this video, speak about the first step in improving the search at the past (use one unified engine), so with this problem out of the way we hope the improvements will start to show up soon.
Looks like there is work on improving the marketplace design also. This is great, finally!
to minimize impact over the community my suggestion for staff is to inform what those changes will be and eventually listen to feedback.
The community is not an enemy but an asset, an important one since many authors and buyers are professionals in their field. Use this important resource, I’m sure many of us can give suggestion and ideas on how to improve everyone experience on envato marketplaces.
So this time maybe we will not suddenly implement something and just wait for congratulations from the community, as it was done in the past for certain updates.
Cool video update, I’m excited about the things I’ve learned you’re working on.
Oh, and also, my heart is full because I’ve seen myself in this video
P.S. Doru, welcome back!
This is why im sticking as an exclusive author at Envato.No other marketplace is like it and releases a strong video like this that shows how they are improving it for us as well and the buyers. It makes feel like im working with them. This is cool.
