There are thousands of items on Graphic River and on theme forest. People using word “Professional” in their files but if i use professional word in my items so there is a big red alert “No your items can’t be approve even it’s already approved”. Envato changed the Policy of keywords??

People here on this forum do you think, word ‘Professional’ comes under ‘Awesome, damn good, Cool’.

Nothing`s wrong with “Professional” but that word means nothing to be honest. As far as I remember, to describe a product you should use adjectives adequate to your item, like blue, flexible, dedicate for business etc..

Using professional in a description, what does it really mean? Your item is professional, others not?!

That`s why they will soft reject items with words like that.

Hope, you get it now :)

If something is still not clear, have a look at [this note] (section: Name & Description)

cheers

Well here are some derivations of the word professional: artistically , standardized ,etc.. What is wrong with them is the fact that they are descriptive words not direct words like : car,portfolio,flyer,book,etc. Well keep in mind that english is not my base language ,this is just my idea of how the english words work ,hope it helps. :)

Alex. I’m not proving that other items on Graphic river have no professional quality. Simply I’m saying on all 7 websites of Envato the word professional used on most of the items. It matters to buyers when they buy something so they deserve a good professional level of quality work.

My question is “has Envato changed the policy recently not to use professional word in the title” and thanks for sharing the link it doesn’t say anything not to use word professional.

For your knowledge please check ot this link and read the point number 9: http://dictionary.infoplease.com/professional

I hope that helps.

Thanks

Don`t be mad, I tried to help you :)

The policy didn`t change. Even one of question in Graphicriver test was about naming items, using words like great, professional, awesome etc..

Regarding to others… sometimes reviewers don`t notice that the description contains words like that but it doesn`t mean it`s fine.

cheers

I’m not getting mad just it’s annoying because I want to update one of my file and I have more than 200 sales of that item. But reviewer said you need to rename the title then he will approve the updates on the file. If I do that then I might lose the search standing of my item. Just looking a right answer.

I do know, what you mean, but unfortunately it`s up to a reviewer, I think ;/

Perhaps, the solutions would be use “professional” as one of keywords rather in description but I have no idea if that would work.

Hmm. So, is “Pro” allowed instead? I guess we’d need a checklist of words being allowed and not.

I thought we weren’t allowed to use descriptive titles like

The Best, Professional, Beautiful, Top notch…..

I Guess that’s just overlooked, or maybe somethings’ changed?

You always can try : “supercalifragilisticexpialidocious” instead of professional. :D;)
