Hello everyone!

We have another bundle coming up, and this one will be packed full of items for corporate projects. Like the last bundle, we want your help finding gems for us to include!

The process here is the same as the last contest, but in case you missed it, here are the rules:

  • You can nominate an item by responding to this thread with a link to the item
  • You can only nominate someone else’s item
  • You can’t nominate more than two items (so pick wisely!)
  • 10 of these items will be picked and re-reviewed by our staff to go into the finals
  • The finals will consist of a community poll that we will post on Envato Notes
  • We will include the five items with the most votes from the community poll in the bundle

All nominations need to be made by the 26th of February AEDT

Here are some general guidelines on how we pick the final 10 items for the polling:

  • The author hasn’t been in a bundle before
  • The author isn’t Elite
  • The item stands out as being particular unique or interesting
  • The item hasn’t encountered any notable issues from buyers
  • The item meets the goals of the bundle: To help everyone build awesome corporate projects

Here are some sample categories:

  • Business Website Templates
  • Business Icons
  • Navigational Elements
  • Website Badges
  • Business Stock Photos
  • Newsletter Templates
  • Social Sharing Plugins
  • Facebook Page Templates
  • Corporate Music
  • Logo Video Templates
  • Brochure Templates
  • Presentation Templates
  • Feel free to nominate files from other categories too.

    If you are curious why we run bundles in the first place, check out this Notes post.

    Most importantly, I’m looking forward to seeing everyone’s nominations!

    Now I’m just curious what is the different between elite and normal authors? Elite was the most important milestone for me, because elite authors was able to adjust items prices.
    When I got elite badge, that privilege was abolished, only older elite authors took a chance for that.
    Now I have elite badge, and my items can’t be nominated.
    In my case elite / non elite status was always useless.
    I’m sure that there are more elite authors without bundle badge and with same disappointment.
    I don’t want to ask why the rules exclude elite authors, because I think that there is no reasonable answer, maybe just a rhetorical monologue from members with higher status than author. Ok, rules are rules and I can’t and don’t want to complain. Just sayin’. :zipped:

    I hope it’s not a problem because I stated my opinion. If it is please feel free to delete this post. I don’t want to aim this thread to wrong direction.
    I’ll nominate items when I find good stuffs. :)
    Thanks.

    I have got to be honest I don’t like the fact that you have excluded a segment of your users out of the running.. what’s next those from a particular country aren’t allowed.

    I honestly wish you just scrapped the stupid Elite thing anyways, we have half of the new authors complaining that Elite earn too much, always get this and that (which is completely unjustified) then we get all the privileges removed practically and now we are excluded from things like this.

    This is seriously not cool :/

    One of the main goals of the bundles is to promote new items and new authors. We do a bunch of other promotions for elite authors, such as the elite ads (which I’m running too right now).

    I’m up for including items by elite authors in this if the items are particularly good, but I will be leaning towards items by non-elites.

    I believe the ‘single’ ad campaign doesn’t produce much for anyone (see forum posts / threads with regard to how Elite authors with this promo don’t seem to agree it does anything)

    I would also like to know what other benefits as you mention a “bunch” – please don’t take this as a personal attack but when you exclude groups and then remark that bunches of stuff are done for Elite authors it pretty much pisses me off as the useful things that were promised have all pretty much been taken away.

    I think excluding elites is a good idea for the community nominations, because the little guy will probably always lose to an elite in the voting. But as long as elites are considered for the other selections (the ones made by staff) that seems like the best way to include everyone.

    jonathan01, by reaching elite status you have obviously achieved great success. What is wrong with giving slightly less established authors a bit of a boost? Your complaint about the lack of elite features is fine, but don’t complain about newer authors being given a chance with the bundle.

    ^ I agree with CodingJack.

    +1 with codingjack.

    It’s a good idea to see community nominations come from newer authors (ie: not elite). Otherwise most nominations would probably be for elite authors.

    Here’s the argument – 5 years of working really darned hard to earn money for myself (and my family) and Envato, and now I am told because I have been successful I can’t participate… surely it should be about the quality of the item, not who created it. That’s my point.

    Let’s not make this a you and us thing (as has previously happened and that I referenced earlier) as we all started with zero sales and worked hard making items that sell, that buyers want, that we support 24/7 – everyone can reach this level – it just seems now that we are being penalized for working hard by being excluded – I do not have a personal motive, I do not want to be part of the bundle I just see this as segregation of the authors and for me that’s just not right.

    Anyways, let the voting begin – I didn’t want to turn everyone away from the purpose of the thread.
