nvm, can delete this.

1 person can’t make a change anyway.

I agree, 1 person won’t make a change. at least as long as that one person is not part of envato staff.

what is this about?

I was linking to a shutterstock image that’s been used in 1 of my previews, so buyers could get the same look as I did in my preview, but Envato doesn’t allow to link to other sites. That’s new.

Our policies prohibit promotion of or linking to competing marketplaces in item files, previews, descriptions or otherwise that are submitted for sale on our marketplaces.

Your submission includes links that will need to be removed in order for it to meet approval requirements. Thanks for your understanding.

Quite selfish IMHO (in this specific issue).

Actually, that’s been in our Knowledgebase and Community Guidelines for a long time – http://support.envato.com/index.php?/Knowledgebase/Article/View/236

Actually its not selfish. Shutterstock is a competing market. And we have photodune here. To give an easier example, you would never see apple selling samsung products. Because its a competing market.

yeah sorry but you’re wrong, as long as I can remember you haven’t been allowed to link to other stock websites on this site.

The reason is obvious and not selfish, what business would purposely direct business to a direct competitor?!

It’s not selfish but I believe it’s not necessary too.

When people see and compare images in Photodune with other competitors, they will realize there is no better place than Photodune to purchase their images from ;)

Better quality, more affordable prices :)

I never knew that this wasn’t allowed so I was surprised.

Guess I’ll use Photodune in future :)

Thanks for clearing things out.
