My latest song got a word taken out of the title, which I’m totally fine with and I had even wondered if they would soft reject it and ask me to rename all the files because of it. But they didn’t, and it was approved the first time. They removed the word out of the title, but then left it in all the files.

Has that ever happened to you?

Yes. The title shouldn’t be longer than 3 words.

This can’t be the reason, Art-of-Sound.

I found 7 items named with 4 words on the first 2 pages of the new approved items in “Music”.

Not long ago I had a similar experience with some approved items. They were named different, not rejected and also no ask for changing and no explanation in advance.

For example:

Original: Oriental Jingle I Named: Middle Eastern Jingle I

Original: Oriental Jingle II Named: Oriental Logo II

Something like that. I was confused. Made no sense for me.

It took some time to get response from the support. The explanation was, that the english word oriental depends more to asia, but the sound was middle eastern.

I unserstood, but not why the second item still got “oriental” in the name. :D

OK, at the end both were named identical. Middle Eastern Ident I + II. :-) That’s all I wanted.

OK, what should you do? Contact the support and ask for the reason.

Good luck, Udo

It’s all about aesthetics. Title “Like Sun After Rain” still can be accepted despite the extra word, but not something like “Happy Motivational Corporate Ukulele”

The only time I had a title changed was for obvious reasons… I wrote a reggae track and called it “Need for Weed”. It was promptly changed to “Groovy Island” after the first two words in my item description.

Won’t be walking on the wild side with track titles any more… ;) That’ll learn me.

Need for Weed was rejected and it was a reggae track?? Some reviewer needs to go to Jamaica….

Come on Envato…. :p – that said, you could have probably put ‘weed’ or ‘stoner’ in the tags….

Heh-heh ;) I think I might have added that flavor to the tags but…gotta check now and see if they tweaked them too. My first encounter with censorship in a while Gareth, and I direct horror movies as my day job!

By the way – you mentioned Christopher Young’s studio in your pdf on freelancing. So happy you’ve had the pleasure of visiting his pumpkin collection. He scored my first feature film “Urban Legend” many years ago and he’s one of my favorite people on the face of the earth. I love that man dearly and am in awe of his talent, and his ability to drink soda. Was so grateful to the studio that they let me hire Chris – he was my first choice and it was the most fun part of making the movie. All the best. Jamie.

I’ve had some logo or ident title changed. Can’t remember what it was. Think they actually added logo or ident to the title.
