Chuck Norris gets his items rated and downloaded (in that order) before even uploading them.

I wan’t aware of that and that’s a bit naive of me, I use the ratings as a guide when I buy from the lesser known authors. I try to buy from the elite authors as much as I can.

exactly the reason why such “clever marketing” exists in the first place. Yet another thread about the current rating system with authors asking for changes that will never happen.

Pitching the exact effectiveness of this aside, what exactly is wrong with having people buy your item whether to rate it or not? Missing the flow in logic there. Envato is still making their cut therefore they don’t care what you have to say about it.

If it is a new author doing this Envato only gets 20% cut from the sale. If it is an experienced author with 70% payment rate then Envato gets nothing and author looses no money from this practice.

As pixelenity says – that’s another argument against current rating system. The rating system needs to go.
