Right now I have 2 partners. 1 that code stuff in WP , and another one that code stuff for AD.

We are uploading stuff in my account and I think it would be awesome if I could create some guest user so they can access my account to upload stuff , do some support .. but no access to the money and stuff like that ..

What you guys think ?

It wouldn’t be a bad idea… And the posibilities of setting different permissions for multiple users. E.g: a user which is allowed to answer support requests, a user which is allowed to upload files, an accountants user allowed to access money info and another user only allowed on the forums. Not a bad idea, but I don’t see I happening, even in the long run.

Another good idea could be to “merge” accounts. Login with your own username and pass, and the money is split evenly between the accounts. For people who want to do colaborative projects.

Or… Even better than the above, upload files, and add other users to the authors list, the money gets split into how many people there are, and then the commission is taken from that, so higher earning authors will still get high comission. When it cones to the statement, it will say colaborative item with n authors sold for x amount, earning you x amount. In the earnings page, separate the colaborative sales and earnings from the normal one, and when adding to the stats, (rating, sales, fillers worth of files sold) have that separate from the main stats, displayed underneath it. And have a seperate badge for “fillers worth of colaborative files sold”. Actually, now that I think about it, this is quite a good idea, it could turn out quite well… Also, on the items pages, have all of the authors listed on the left, and they all say “author” on the comments.

Wow, I’m quit pleased with that idea, there would definately need to be a new table, or even a new database to hold all of the colaborative info. If envato were to encorporate this into the marketplaces, it could really set it apart from all other marketplaces and get loads of other authors flooding in. :)

remember… I said it first, unless someone else did… And if they did… I need proof… Sen me a link to the thread! :D

It could get tricky with the legal stuff. If you add a user who can upload files, and an upload he makes results in a copyright claim, who takes responsibility?

That’s when they have to agree to terms which confirm that the work belongs the the account they are uploading the item to.. ( you are refering the the original post right? )

What if a big author opens “slots” for newcomers then takes x % off the new one’s earnings. The new one gets more than he would get on a new account. This is exploitable, and is bad.
