Complaints I and many others have regarding the forums usage, please read them, it seems the forums have gone crazy!

  • 1. Nice avatar! Use Off Topic! This is subliminal advertising so go for twitter.
  • 2. Nice, new badge! Use Off Topic! Thank your buyers there, still, this is advertising!
  • 3. Awesome, you’re a sheriff now! Then investigate in silence, or again, use the Off Topic…
  • 4. UAU !!! CHECK OUT THIS LINK !!! Again, that’s off topic, not item discussion, is that link for sale on Envato? No? Then it’s off topic!
  • 5. Google is moving out of China?Apple launches the new iNuke with touchscreen?! Good news, OFF TOPIC !!! It’s ENVATO not BBC or CNN !
  • 6. I got a new gadget/thingy/template/site/song/business card/pc/. Really cool, that’s Off Topic as well. Else it’s advertising, not fair to others!
  • 7. “JOHN DOE Please help me with my file”. Use Item Discussions! It’s faster, or send the author an e-mail.
  • 8. Stop posting the same thing 9 times. If you don`t get an answer that means you will not get an answer ever. Maybe a few curses for filling the forums with spam!
  • 9. What’s your opinion on … … … … that is OFF TOPIC ! We all love iMacs and iPhones. Do you see iPhones for sale on Envato? No?! Then it’s OFF TOPIC !
  • 10. Stop posting links to items, they are deleted daily by the duzines, didn’t you figure it out yet? Advertise on twitter or facebook!
  • Let’s at least try to keep the forums on subjects related to the Envato marketplaces, really. It’s starting to become a mess, just check the forums out on a regular day, out of a page filled of topics, one is related to the marketplaces, the rest are all SPAM !

    I meant to cause no offence with this topic, but it’s all going nuts!

    Maybe cut back on the drama just a tid bit?

    I look at the main forum page several times per day and I think your statements are a bit exaggerated; I don’t notice that much spam at all.

    Besides, Envato has a whole bunch of moderators who do a good job at keeping things neat and organized.

    Maybe on TF :) Look on AD :) Indeed moderators rock :) but still, it’s up to us to keep it clean in the first place don`t you think?

    Ah, I see. You were referring to the AD forums… Could be that those are a bit messier then the TF ones…

    I think that the small number of replies to obviously inappropriate topics is a good natural filter – these threads quickly disappear. And if a seemingly off topic thread does get a lot of replies them so be it, perhaps it’s ok to let discussions that are popular thrive.

    I don’t think there is a terribly major problem with our forums overall… Especially compared to the majority of online communities.
