Just wondering how the ‘top new authors’ system works? Do authors get randomly picked? I joined graphicriver in August 2012 but I’ve made most of my sales in October, around 88 sales in graphicriver, however I don’t appear in the list any suggestions?
You only have 1 chance of getting onto the list, which is, the month when you first submitted an item into the marketplace. For example, if you have submitted your first item into GraphicRiver in October and you’ve made enough sales to be among the ‘top’ authors, then your name will appear there in November. However, if you’ve submitted even more items and had more sales in November, your name will never appear in GraphicRiver’s Top New Author page anymore.
If now you create a new ThemeForest item and had enough sales in November, you can be listed as one of the Top New Authors in ThemeForest in December.
I submitted one item on 28th of september, made no sales for that month, submitted another item the 1st of October, made 54 sales for the month, uploaded a second one in the 4th of October, made 32 sales. Total of 86 for that month for those two items alone. As far as I understand this should follow your theory right? however I’m not in this month top new authors list, a bit disappointing as I was looking forward for a bit of exposure which is always quite helpful when you start from zero.
