..... Also buyers only purchase top sellers items, weird.
I agree, lately VH is turning very very exclusively to the top and very well known authors. Most of us can’t compete with them and we only have some sales the first days of approved file. Only a new and effective SEO and autopromotion outside VH, would give chances to us. Finally i guess a lot of authors looking for other alternatives to sell

A good technique will be trying to calculate if your file is going to hit a Monday on approval. It’s really hard to estimate that, but the best option is to try and go for the first days of the week and pray your file gets in the top files until the end of it.

The sales are really messed up, I guess the fix that they have applied ( if they did) didn’t) fix anything, How about you all ??

They should have gone with “if ain’t broke, don’t fix it” approach :(

Not sure about it. I experience a major sales drop as most of you, yet I hope to see a great increase when this is all over. The search system was never great, and I talk in perspective of years of being around here. With such vast amounts of content over the marketplace, the search should be superb! Well, I hope it will be :) There are good projects that by some misfortune go unnoticed…

Well, here comes Monday, lets hope for a good start :)

Sorry to say but I agree with you guys. Last 3 days have been the worst I’ve seen in literally years.

Yep. My average daily sales have held between 5 and 6 sales a day for years, despite the fact that I haven’t had much opportunity to upload more than a couple of projects a year. (so there’s very little upload based noise in there).

The last three days have been 1s, 2s and 3s…. so a 50% fall. There was a “no sales” day a couple of days before.

Something is definitely weird. Is that Microlancer box diverting traffic over to Microlancer? Has something changed with the search engine that is finding other stuff instead? Are new files being ranked much higher than they used to be? What’s going on? Is it the Theme Forest offer? Are other market places suffering?
