Just want to keep this thread alive until something is done about these badges. Any word from Envato staff?

They already gave us their conclusion on page 51:

http://themeforest.net/forums/thread/new-badges/139831?page=51

With an attitude of “our story is so awesome and worked so hard and we like the results so much” I don’t think there is a need to get another reply from them anytime soon.

However, I’d like to clarify some specific points: We won’t be reverting back to the old system/icons and the overall art direction is not going to change. We know the new designs are not to everyone’s taste, but we also know design is highly subjective and it’s impossible to make something everyone loves.

So what was the point of us filling out a survey if our opinions don’t even matter? That’s like saying, “hey we’d love to hear what you think about it but we aren’t going to change anything.”

So much for community first.

They look so wrong, I really liked the old ones. Specially the paws, they look so non motivational now :D

Here’s a survey to make you all feel like you have any valuable input into the community side of things. We’re going to ignore the results but fill it in anyway.

I didn’t thinking too much, not even bother about new badges, but recently I found that it could be cool if there is badge like…”This author have more than 50, 100, 200 items in portfolio”. Maybe it have no sense at all but in other hand it could motivate authors to make more good selling items and earn one more cool badge :D

Not a good idea to incentive authors to thrive for quantity instead of quality :p

I genuinely really like the icons they work really well. I enjoyed the old icons but the new ones are brilliant.

A colour code just doesn’t work for quick viewing, numbers do whilst people might think they look bad it really fits the brand, http://themeforest.net/community/badges is a lovely page.

Normally I’m not 100% behind change but this I am, they’re friendly, fun and not offensive
