I agree silenceplease , As a Contest, One man submitted 1200 works, accounting for 40 pages, I have not seen any Contest like this number of works. (I am not against pixellogo, I doubt the rules of the Contest )

I’m pretty sure, hopefully, Pixellogo is out of the contest.

With probably being a major player in the game set up.

So now, after 1200 logos submitted, at once, we have to brainstorm and submit ?

At least add exclusive logo category like pixellogo.com.

Otherwise, like Philmo said “I’m going to just pretend this category isn’t here…”

mh..those babies are logos according to the envato staff so end of the story.

now philmo pointed out most probably the only argument we have the right to discuss about.

last year i remember that i tried to upload some mockup templates. they almost looked the same – i could say “same object in different angulation” – so both amanda and reviewer talked me about the 3 variations rule which says you can upload max 3 similar items.

i never found anything about it neither in the wiki nor in the forum, anyway i got 2 or 3 rejections so i convinced myself it was a real rule.

now i see 26 items that are basically based on the same idea. colors, angulation, size, everything is the same but the letters.

i understand this can happen in photodune where a particular angulation determines a project success but here we are talking about graphics.

couldn’t the author just let the purchaser edit the “letter” too?

no?

really?

what if i upload a similar set of logos with the japanese ideograms?

A 3D render of a cylinder with a blue letter in front of it is not a logo. The fact that you’ve accepted 26 of them, one for each letter of the alphabet (as seperate files!) is even worse.

Similarly a silver square with a letter in it (again, 3D rendered) is not a logo. The fact that you’ve accepted 26 of them is even worse.

I’m going to just pretend this category isn’t here…

This whole situation is just really disappointing in my opinion. I hope Envato realizes that this is a terrible idea sooner rather than later – before they do irreparable damage to their own company image.

Absolutely a valid point Michael.

Easy with the language there WillemoesDK!

I’m going to sit on the fence for this one…Just reserving my judgement and seeing how all this pans out! No use butchering the idea in it’s primary stage!

I feel like this thread http://graphicriver.net/forums/thread/new-logos-category-coming-soon-contest/48490?page=1 was totally overlooked :(

I think Envato just start this category on pixellogo demand.

If You have huge portfolio of any graphical items – Envato will catch You like other cheap stock sites. That is how I feel it these days and I’m not happy with it.

May be it is time to start search new marketplace only for designers with some unique touch.

:(

come on guys, don’t freak out.

envato is a qualified company. they are mainly (completely i’d say) involved in stock market so quantity (which brings money) will be always a step before quality (which is already pimped to high levels by the way)

i would invite all the authors to refrain from accusing envato of making a huge mistake by importing logos in the marketplaces.

they actually made a big move with the use of the word “logo”

think about it >

yesterday i googled “vector graphics” and as results i got envato and other websites

then i google “logo templates” and envato disappeared

today i google “logo templates” end as results i get envato and the other websites.

its marketing and complaining doesn’t help.

let’s accept this as a well pondered choice and move on.
