Hey guys,

I just got my latest item soft disabled for having a non-unique name. Don’t expect a mail first because you won’t get, so this is a warning for authors who will post their items or ALREADY HAVE non-unique names to be careful.

I’m posting here because from what i’ve searched over the Envato Knowledge i didn’t find nothing about this.

Cheers (Happy New Year!!)

Thanks for the warning Hogash :) It is quite interesting – your item was there for about a month and now somebody has found out that the name is not unique… really interesting (why they approved it with this name?? )

I had a similar issue – my latest item was accepted and was there for about 20 days. Then all of a sudden it was disabled because the preview image contained the apple logo. I understand that this is not allowed and I simply forgot about the apple logo that’s why I left it there, but why my item was approved at first place :)

So a HTML template that was in top 5 files for the latest 2 weeks was soft disabled after nearly one month just because it had a non-unique name? No offense, but don’t think this is unprofessional?

This is the way you treat your top authors? Not even a warning before? Why wasn’t this pointed before it being approved?

@joomfx no problem ;) Sorry to hear that mate! The issue you had was not quite the reviewers task, they assure only about the item’s quality for approval here not copyright issues. I know for sure copyright problems are beyond their scope. Only on reports or DMCA’s they might intervene. I had no problem that i was accepted first and then soft disabled for this reason, it’s not their job to check that, however i haven’t seen anywhere this rule (of having a unique name). I would’ve appreciated an email first before taking actions.

@FinalDestiny Hopefully in the future this will be added as a mandatory rule, to have a unique name and authors might get a warning first, i think it’s much more friendly and professional.

Alright, I see Hogash :) I was thinking that it is reviewers task to check for copyright materials in the demo content and the preview images.

Anyway, yes I also haven’t seen a rule for a unique name. Even if there is such, there must be an email informing you that your item will be disabled. Otherwise, it is really unprofessional ;)
