I am a member of the Audiojungle in September 2012. I have 1 sale in end od September and 30 sales in October, why am I not in the list Top New Authors In October? It’s a shame, I think that I deserve to be in this top.

Because your first item was uploaded in September thus your “new author period” applied only to September. Had you waited until 1 October to upload your first track you would be there.

Because your first sale was in September, you have to time your first upload carefully, I had a similar mistake when I started. Quite funny really, I’ve been here since the end of August and have only 29 sales! You’re doing great, just keep up the good work and soon you may get a feature on the front page if you continue to upload regularly :)

You’re right, you do deserve to be in the top. I wish we could come up with a better way to generate top new authors but I just don’t know. It’s dependent on first sale, not on upload date… so if you first sale came in October instead the end of September (even if it got approved in September), you’d be there. It’s tricky.

Sorry man. At least it seems you got some returning customers. You’re doing well. My first month (December 2011) got me 3 sales… yes, three… with a handful of items uploaded. But it’s funny, because those 3 sales got me on the top new authors list about half way down.

Good luck!

Thank you all. But still a damn shame. Especially when you get to the top authors who downloaded this month hundreds of mediocre tracks and sell only a dozen pieces. I was terribly angry.

You have to time your registration process accordingly.

The same was with me. Actually there are people who have read some forum threads carefully and have learned some tricks. That allowed them to get the first place in the Top New Author chart for example. Some people are very seriously preparing for this kind of job. I begin to understand this things only now. And I’ve made many mistakes in the past. Anyway, mate, everything will be alright, I sure and I wish you good luck!

It’s really not hard. If they just generated a system which showed the Top New Authors (and Top Authors – which wouldn’t change as much, but still might be interesting to follow) of the last 30 days it would be much more varied and interesting for buyers. Likewise, Top Selling Items of the last 30 days would be way more interesting because it would help buyers to see what’s trending. I’m no coding expert but this can’t be that hard to implement compared to some of the other stuff that needs to be coded here. Maybe I’m wrong though and it could be the hardest thing in the world.

(and if the retroactive 30 days thing was going to be implemented at all, a further way of improving that would be to allow buyers to change the number of days that can be viewed. e.g. Top selling authors of the last 14 days, 21 days, etc…. probably a far larger undertaking though)

Having to time the registration process is just silly. I wish Envato would take notice of these things, but like the horrible ratings system which multiple authors have requested to be changed for months, nothing happens. Likewise with the search engine – though I do understand that is a huge and incredibly important undertaking.

The only significant thing I’ve seen on AJ in the past 6 months is the ‘similar items’ addition on item pages, and that is something I can’t understand why it was prioritized.

I appreciate the marketplace that Envato provides for us, but AJ is just absolutely nowhere near its full potential as a marketplace in its current form. It’s disappointing given that every author here gives at least 30% of their earnings,and in turn, it’s hard to see how any of it gets fed back into the marketplace. Ultimately, it’s everyone’s loss, the authors, the buyers, and Envato. Just my thoughts on the matter, forgive me for veering off topic.

For sure you echo the words of many Gareth. Many of which don’t want to voice things so as to not come across as negative.

Nothing you’ve suggested above is hard to implement at all for even a Jr developer. Something like that should take an hour tops Imo.

I for one have become frustrated by both the lack of implementation and the lack of acknowledgement of even the most brain dead sensible suggestions and as such don’t even bother anymore.
