Yo guys, I reported a copyright infringment last week and the item has been removed. But I didn’t get any reply from Envato and I was expecting to get a Sheriff Badge or at least a “Thank you” for loosing my time for this. :|

The ticket seems closed but I didn’t get any human reply about this. Is this usually working that way?

I don’t think the badge was intended as a vast reward for reporting ‘bad guys’ on the marketplace. It wasn’t a waste of time, you made FlashDen a better place. Just keep on reporting evil when you see it, eventually someone’ll come around and give you the badge.

I recieved a silver sheriff’s badge after repeating several (not only one) hazardous posts. After 30 days it disappeared again – that’s just how things go. :P

What I’m trying to say is.. keep on reporting, regardless of the reward. You wouldn’t do charity to help yourself either, right? :o

More badges we have, more confusions for the new buyers :P
Better not to have too many badges!

I think they have a limited number of badge available. I hear that the plutonium badge cost something like 250.000$ :P

The sheriff badge more that possible are being recycled from one member to another, as the silver cost money this days.

@ Flashedge, providing that the copyright infridgement you have reported is unique you are entitled to a silver sheriffs badge which you keep for 30 days (only 1 unique report is required for silver).

Sometimes support do forget to hand them out so just shoot them an email and I’m sure they will sort it for you, although bare in mind it wont be of high priority :)

Nah, I was just curious because I thought the silver badge would popup after a reported infringment and the gold one after several reports.

I don’t care about a stupid icon below my avatar anyway. :)

Maybe it’s better this way, so I won’t be targeted. :P
