How can authors that don’t speak english almost at all promote, sell and give support? English is a must in my opinion. Giving support in a language that X or Y don’t understand… I mean, really…

Anybody who’s tried using this would know that it mainly rips the English language to shreds as it can’t understand what context you are talking in.

Well said, my friend.

Anyone else feel that Envato potentially considers the quiz more of a barrier to sales than new authors? Perhaps the thinking was along the lines of: More authors = more sales, Remove quiz = more sales. I’ve got to give them credit for spinning it like they’re altruistically helping new authors out though. ;-)

I don’t get that impression, I’ve gotta say.

No neither do I.

They are doing this as a method to try and increase new authors, which will increase sales, of course. They are a business, that’s what business’s do.

Don’t wonder if the forums fill with dumb threads regarding “my file got rejected please help” or “my flyer with my mother and sister’s face got rejected i hate graphicriver”, though.

Agreed. I understand that Envato wants to take away a barrier, but this will surely be a result.

About using Google translate: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LMkJuDVJdTw miscommunication and support…never mix well ;-)

When is this happening?
We are aiming to release this some time later this week. We’ll let you know in this forum post as soon as it’s out there.

I know this will be easily skipped by staff ( :D ) but just interested to share my opinion:

While we have major upgrades like search system, please don’t make changes on other departments for a reasonable time – leave some clearance space :D So that authors can notice difference in sales trends with some clarity about what causes what.

Will those who passed the quiz, which they studied really, really hard for, receive a QuizMaster-badge? Badges, it’s all about the badges.
