Stop creating threads about your sales. Stop creating threads about your sales. Stop creating threads about your sales. Stop creating threads about your sales.

What exactly are these “important threads” you are talking about cyzer?

The “share funny gif”-threads?
The “review times”-threads
The “rejected!”-threads?
The “I want to buy eMvato” threads?
The “sales-monitor”-threads? (which is in fact also really useless, I pointed that out several times)

The few announcement thread should be stickied anyway and therefor easy to find.

In my eyes, almost any thread here is nonsense, from talking about hobbies, soccer world championship, strange sale behaviour for the one author. I don’t mind a few other nonsense celebration threads in between.

There is big difference between those threads and “100 sales!” threads.
“100 sales!” threads have only two words “congrats” and “thanks”... nothing more, no other info, no conversations… only dozen repeats of “congrats”. Those threads are useless in any case.

Although the small number celebrations occupy much forum space and unnecessary attention, it is little bit hard to ask everyone NOT to do that. That’s why we have YAY Thread dedicated for this :D

Better make the YAY Thread sticky :P

Out of curiosity I’ve just looked at the ThemeForest’s forum and things seem more interesting over there…

My first impression looking at Theme Forest’s forum is that it’s quite similar but with a rather more technical bias. And as a non-theme expert, I can’t say that titles like When you create a theme that uses Bootstrap, how do you handle css changes? really turn me on. Although I’m sure it’s a very interesting thread. On VH, a lot of our tech stuff is tucked away in threads like the Expressions Thread.

I think that’s important though. I think the forum should contain some threads that are gettable and interesting to non-Ae experts, non-authors, buyers, casual browsers, wannabees and newbs. Okay, Yay! threads are not much in the way of interesting, but they do break up the tecchie stuff and the moans a bit.

I say – if you want interesting threads just think up an interesting theme and hit that “Start New Topic” button. I’d love to see more threads about design, culture, graphic design history, the direction the motion graphics industry is taking, stock’s changing role in the design scene and so on, but it seems that forums are destined to be tech places, in exactly the same way as cinematography forums are full up with tech talk about lenses and so on.

But one way or another, I don’t think you can blame a forum’s interestingness or otherwise on a couple of errant Yay! threads.

I also agree. The increase of sales milestone threads are making us miss out on very important topics. It’s extremely annoying to look at, and very hard to ignore. Sales have also gone down due to these topics by 15%, and will continue to deflate if nothing is done about this pressing issue(devs have confirmed).. and pretty soon, Envato will be forced to shut down due to these miserable, lonely, lifeless threads. THIS IS A BIG DEAL.

This is what I mean. The whole thread is based on atom principle: 99% of the thread is constructed of empty space, the other 1% is just “congratz”.

On what do you base this gargantuan assumption, Zero? Or did you forget the sarcasm tags? :-)
