Hi fellows,

the jungle is growing more and more. That’s great but we all know the effect of being a messy. You go mad and you’re loosing fun and control in searching for useful things in the bunch of useless stuff.

Well, it could be a sky-high price to chuck old stuff without looking on it again. So this is my idea to slim the jungle:

Give these called tracks a second chance over a certain period because there is a lot of good stuff sadly unheared and lost in the jungle for various reasons. These tracks could be placed on the front over a small period and being contained in a special collection, also over a certain period. The tracks which still have no sales could be removed for ever and maybe get a third chance anywhere else but no longer mess the jungle. (Without meaning these works are dirt!) This could help everybody. Authors, buyers, server and nerves. ;-)

What do you think about it?

If there are tracks that aren’t being heard, it’s because their creators aren’t doing a good enough job of marketing them. You can’t just upload and wait for the money to come, you need to market, test and market more.

Is just sad that there are so many nice songs there with no sales :(

I will give just an example of a nice song that I like (now this is subjective but anyway)

it was published in November 2012 but zero sales

audiojungle surely need some promotion in some way from envato, like “Great unknown country songs” (or some other genre) with links from frontpage.

instead of those four weakly featured slots that practically presents an item for one month, replace them with links to featured collections. This could work on all marketplaces.

Agree that some additional promotion can help. But don’t think removing old items is a good idea.

My profile have 2 AJ tracks with few sales and 3 other tracks with 0 sales. Everything pretty old but I’m glad i have it as part of me. :-) Any item removal will hurt me unless I do it myself.

Best regards, Andrey

I agree, although I think it should come in the form of encouraging authors to delete any old tracks that they don’t think are up to par and/or aren’t marketable.

I do think AJ has a great review team to make sure all items are eligible to sell. Old or new. Up to authors to decide whether to keep old items or not.

Thanks very much mates for your replies. :-)

TBH, I’m a bit surprised that all of you prefer to keep these items for sale but all your explanations are understandable. It was just an idea I wanted to share with you. For me it wouldn’t be a problems taking older zero-sale-items away and maybe I’ll do it later on my own to give them a chance anywhere else. This wouldn’t slim the jungle really. :-)

I wonder how our potential buyers think about it. Would it help finding useful tracks faster?

It’s really a nice track, doru. I like the guitar starting at 1:14 very much. :-) Thanks for sharing.

I don’t agree with removing any items. Look at this author.. http://codecanyon.net/forums/thread/thank-you-envato/120736

He was going to remove his item because he stopped supporting it and it wasn’t getting many sales, but right before he removed it he got 4,500 sales in one night!!! $40,500 and he gets at least 50%. If he would’ve taken the item down right away when he thought about it he would have lost out.

What idiot would buy 4,500 licences, be honest. Its either a stolen card, a hacked paypal or some scam. No way any person with that kinda money would shell out that kinda dosh for that.

The item isnt even that good. Support is abysmal.. nah something smells.

No Way
