If it involves ukulele then you already have the answer: stop it. :p Nah really, it’s just that golden star of yours which radiates and illuminates everyone. I’ve heard that its curse diminishes over time and will eventually even cease to be. Let’s just hope those forest ninjas you were talking about will never get it into their hands, for that would change the newly uploaded works to AudioJungle drastically.

It happened to me already 4-5 times and I had to drop my new item because it became useless…

I really think someone (maybe a team? because they move fast) has access to the keywords searched here and they quickly develop new items that were searched …

Couldn’t resist asking this question, how much is the time it takes for you to complete the product from your first idea? The more time span it takes, the more coincidences you have to face!

From my experience, 3 weeks are fair enough to escape from these coincidence tragedies! :D

So what to do when you’re working around 3 months on a WP theme? :D

Is it a whimsical retro style white title/badge overlay on top of some kind of whimsical golden-hour videofootage? I saw one a month or two ago and now they’re everywhere!

nope, but I’ve had some ideas about that type of project a year ago and did nothing, now someone else profits because he took action while I was looking at the window how rain falls.


You say you are almost done. Just finish it and upload as soon as possible. Even to copy someone’s work it takes a lot of time. If you upload it soon, that can be your proof that it’s your own project.

well don’t think this can be accepted as proof :) but I’m now I need to lose more time on how to make it better and less similar.

“The Envato conspiracy” :P
But as every Conspiracy theory… there is always a grain of truth.

I’m not a “conspiracy guy” but i don’t belive in coincidence either.
