A file can not be downloaded more than 50 times in total, regardless of the time frame in which these downloads occur. Once you have exceeded 50 downloads in total, you will receive the following error message if you attempt to download the file again; “This item has been flagged for being downloaded too many times in one day. Contact support for more details.”

I read this today… I’m a little confused.

http://wiki.envato.com/buying/support-buying/limits-on-file-downloads/

So does this mean the total sales for a file I capped to 50, or am I reading wrong?

Or is it Author downloads?

I think that applies to your personal limit of how many times you can download a file if you have purchased a file… not how many times a file can be downloaded by buyers in total – that should be unrestricted.

Also, I see this limit is per day.

Do you really need to download the same file 50 times in one day?

It wouldn’t make sense that the sales would be capped. After reading it a second time, I believe your correct. It’s just that they didn’t specify.

if someone buys more than 50 items a day, we should make him a statue or alternatively, call the cops.

XD Or if someone buys 1-2 files, and download ‘em 50 times in a day. :D

Basically it’s a great idea, a author can only download the file 50 times, when he exceeded that limit it usually means something is wrong. And you must agree with them on this fact. Why would you download your own file more than 50 times? You have it in your computer right? If not on a DVD or on envato, or backed up somewhere, and even if you don’t have it backed up, 50 times, is a reasonable limit to download it. After that your item gets blocked.

Good move Envato!

The moral of the story is to stop compulsively deleting your own work. See, Envato teaches life lessons as well as keeps their server loads under control. :D
