It times out after a month. You get gold if you’re really good, that doesn’t time out.

Now where the heck is my silver badge, I caught 6 icon packs yesterday during review :P and an additional 4 authors ripping.

It gets timed out after one month I believe. If you want one that sticks, you’ll have to prevent copyright issues more than once. You’ll get the gold badge.

Edit: Lol, I forgot to press the post reply button, which is why Arik beat me. I was checking out Google Wave, I was just invited. :)

Cheers i was wondering why, and i had just begun to build up my collection of badges.

I shall have to keep an eyeout for those people out there cheating!

out of interest ArikB, what happens to a user if they have an item removed for copyright reasons, also what if it is spotted to late and people buy it, wont they then use it illegally and i would have thought there would be ramifications for envato as they sold it, or is it all down to the user.

also how big a problem is it are people that stupid to take really well known files and try to pass tehm of aas there own?

Hey guys, I’m a bit new here. Could you please tell me how you spot a “scammer” on GraphicRiver? I did not know that you were getting rewarded for reporting scammers, as I did not know GraphicRiver even had such a thing. How do I spot someone trying to scam someone else?

You look them square in the eyes… and you say,

“What in thrashing tar nations? Where is it that thou hath done to that thing there?”

If they look confused… they’re probably alright… walk away. However, if they start quivering like a willy nilly… you know you caught one!

Happy Hunting!

if you so much after thos badges, create some accounts at most known sites and start hunting them down…after 15-20 reports, you get your golden sheriff. Continue on, you get an additional silver badge :-)
