Raise the bar. I looked around on GraphicRiver and saw really unusable and files which are available for free in better quality on other sites. I think there has to happen something (and that’s the purpose of this thread I guess). ;)

Hello everybody, i don’t have something new to say cause you already came up with some ideas on how to stop this low quality files flood.

I really support Bebel’s thread and i can only say that he is right. Hope someone from the staff will take initiative and think of a way to correct this. A very quick step is to raise the standards of the files, i’ve seen it done on Themeforest i think it can be done on Graphicriver.

Let’s not make a 17000 files marketplace, let’s make a 17000 great (quality) files marketplace.

This is a question for the reviewers.

In all this time when all these files started “pouring” how many quality files did you see? (i’m not judging any reviewer, i’m just asking cause they saw every file that came up on the front page).

When i first came on Graphicriver, i used to examine every file on the front page (effects, style, idea) and every time i said “wow”. And now i spend 5 min max on the front page to see what’s new and i’m not very happy of what i see (sorry if i offended anybody, this is how i see things).

P.S. Sorry again.

Ok, after reading the whole thread once again, with a clear mind, it seems everyone supports the idea of “raising the bar” – in other words – Reviewers should be more strict and demanding in regards to quality before approving items.

Great, it is the first step and I support it.

I’ve opened some threads like this long time ago!

I always thought that the solution for this is to choose the authors.

A market with all good items are great. I agree with that.

However, GraphicRiver is still a young market in the Marketplace family. I put my hope in something like the SEO ability, the better interface, the better search engine, and somewhat more to the system core of all the way it’s working, so the buyer may find his way to items better.

Raising up the bar is a good idea. It will take time, of course, as it’s the work from human, not machines… Some reviewers require more than the others, that’s why there’s always a factor called “luck” in every submission to Graphicriver.

Hope things will be better :)

I’m not sure of this but i think Graphicriver is as old as Activeden and Themeforest.
