With the large influx of bulk files from some authors recently the market appears to be supporting stock images.

I a bit confused as to how this marketplace selects some files to include and what not to include. I could fill a post with tons of link to files that appear to be stock oriented and not really have a value for use in creating other projects for clients.

I recently had a file rejected which has no different from any other files of its type. And I was told that it was stock imagery.

I’ve had to send links to reviewers to get items accepted by showing that what I have is the same as other items approved. With no changes they then get excepted which takes forever to get items on the marketplace.

I’m one who voted for a separate vector marketplace. Can someone explain how items (like tattoos or holiday items) aren’t stock images.

I’m very disappointed by the inconsistent message that the marketplace seems to be sending and how reviewers seem to have very different ideas on what the marketplace is or is not.

I think we need clarification.

I agree with you. I think that vectors should be a part of another marketplace and include such categories as T-Shirt templates, isolated objects etc. It’s pretty hard to search through graphicriver for vector files because all the random graphics pop up.

The idea is both good and bad, I think that a marketplace just for vectors might fail like 3Docean.

I don’t think vectors need a new marketplace,instead envato should give more space to exclusive authors.

I just really want the marketplace to be consistent on what they approve and don’t approve. I hate the need to have to prove that a file fits the marketplace.

hi all,

I’m new here so this is my first post. :)

I do not have enough experience here to really comment on the consistency argument. But what struck me is huge flood of logos I found to be available from some authors. There seem to be companies just flooding the marketplace with literally hundreds of logos.

While there is nothing wrong with the logos as such I think it takes away from the exclusiveness of this marketplace. So while I’m not 100% sure we need a separate vector marketplace (where would an all vector or web banner go? – I think that would be confusing) I do think it may be good idea to have a separate Logo market Place.

Just my $.02

Cheers

Chris
