For stock footage I agree that a price increase of any kind would be nice… because it’s always a bit disheartening when I realize the other top stock footage marketplaces are able to set prices on average 10x higher than envato.

I think 70% is more than enough. Combining the fact that the elite level was lowered from 300k to 75k, in this segment, Envato has done a lot for the authors.

I vote for 75%. Envato should take 1/4 of the winnings.

Talking about Elite. If I may put my two cents in, it would be better to be elite based on buyer ratings. It would involve much more other things but think about it and you’ll see how better that would be.

Isn’t that how it works now. The best vote for an author is when a buyer is willing to spend money on their work.

Not for all the cases. At the same time ratings also doesn’t necessarily reflect quality of item. I guess that’s why “earnings” based as milestones set here – unavoidably.

We are fine with 30% for Envato, but what we are not fine about is what we get (or rather don’t get) for it.

Number 1 is traffic, we need more consistent traffic. Even though the marketplace keeps growing, we don’t feel it. We are in a huge store with thousands of aisles where people only grab stuff from the few front aisles. This worked fine years ago, not anymore. Please innovate.

Number 2-?, the usual suspects, pipeline, dead horse

I continue to think that the markteplace should be “cleaned up” of very old items that does not sell. If an item is not selling since 1 year (or more, maybe depending also on the previous sales) then it should be removed. Of course the author could upload it again, but this will clean up envato from a lot of “useless” items.

for exampe, if you look at audiojungle music items, order them by date, you see songs uploaded in 2006-2007 with 0-2 sales. is this reasonable? don’t know about other marketplaces…
