You are free to use this in commercial projects however please credit me and please do not redistribute it. I will make it available on my profile page so if you include this in say a flyer template, you can leave a link to the original file in your file’s documentation :)

I would rather share it with you guys than leave it on my HD… I hope you like it!

I really don’t know why it’s rejected. It’s great and innovative!

@Raincutter.. what? ha

I think a staff should review it and unhide my post. I was allowed to give away free stock photos, I’m not promoting my files & I am not giving away a file that is competitive to anything on the marketplace already :s

Umm… was it useful?

Anyways, rules are for everyone.

Because of the commercial nature of the Envato networks, authors are expected to understand and respect the fact that using the forum to post links to one’s own items, or to give away free files to the community, is not allowed. This practice effectively undercuts the hard work of all authors who wish to sell their items fairly, and as such it is not tolerated.

I didn’t see the original post, but I’d review the forum rules: http://wiki.envato.com/community/forums-community/forum-rules/

Specifically,

A Note on Self Promotion Because of the commercial nature of the Envato networks, authors are expected to understand and respect the fact that using the forum to post links to one’s own items, or to give away free files to the community, is not allowed. This practice effectively undercuts the hard work of all authors who wish to sell their items fairly, and as such it is not tolerated.

I don’t know if the type of file matters, in the end it promotes your other work/brand (I assume) and the forums aren’t a place for that.

But yes, a staff member will review the post and determine whether it is actually deserving of a flag or not. :)

Ah well, you win, internet warriors.

I was allowed to give away free photos so didn’t see the problem with this, especially as it’s not competing with any files on offer…
