Hi friends! Last Friday I was on the front page as featured author and I stayed there only for three days.Now they had changed it.The front page exposure is more important to an author.I am not whining but disappointed :(

my sympathy is with you, but is it first time you are the featured author?

Thanks StrokeVorkz :) But why should this happen? As GhosTeam said they let some authors to stay there for 2 weeks and some one for two or three days..This doesn’t sounds good

I’m sorry to hear that, this is not fair. Also the author who stayed for two weeks really didn’t that needed that extra exposure caus he is going to make the elite status in fastest time ever, already before the feature.

Your templates are great and they do sell not bad at all, but you really deserve and need that exposure more.

Sure isn’t fair addeystock, sorry to hear this.

Some of the featured items or authors seem to be decided on sudden peaks of interest on an item, which is maybe why the previous author got two Weekly Features (of similar items, even) almost in succession and an extended two week stay as Featured Author.

If a new item comes up and buyers rush to buy it, then I’m pretty sure that item or the author will get a feature soon… Since this place is a business, I understand why envato tries to push the hot sellers, and in a way I’m glad they do because the marketplaces get more traffic… but I also think the feature system could be fairer like everyone is mentioning.

The way I see it – the feature spot should promote talented authors …. no matter how well they sell….
That’s the whole point. A way to motivate creative items that get lost in this huge collection of items in VH.
Not advertising the items which already sell tons every week…
Give exposure to good items that are not getting enough of it…. One week in this spot can make a whole difference for an author for months….
