... The user who took advantage of this new rule is well known, staff promoted him on front page and I’m sure they visited his items and saw the banner, so there is no doubt in my mind that the rule exist.

The problem is staffs having less awareness about rules than authors – due to specialized nature of work. It is natural that an author can easily find broken rules than staffs (unless the staff’s job is related to rules and policies). This is where complaints and complainers are inevitable.

However the accuracy and efficiency on managing these things are what differentiates well calculated business expansion Vs raw decisions to hike numbers.

@doru,

Basically, I can say that there is no change on the rules here. It is only on our interpretation, and different author has different interpretation here.

And, this is only because some of us think that doing anything to get more sales is allowed here. And when Envato said, “don’t do that”, then some of us said, “oh, Envato changes the rules”... I can say that it is not “his” first time… ;)

I think, it is better if Envato can make a dedicated page to show the rule, “easy to read” DOs and DON’Ts for authors. So, it can be good author guidelines before doing anything that possibly cross the line.

this is awesome news. :) because having that new rule is a great thing but if we can just do as we want depending of our interpretation then is fantastic :D

one thing we can do just now is throw a rave party at envato headquarters, working hours only. I will bring the beer but we need to stock it somewhere. Did some of you have the key to Collis office? If not, we will break the door.

I drink Guinness, if someone have other preferences please let me know.

Sad fact but it is true. It does happen several times here. I send a real example via message to you. Check your email. ;)

I found a new rule that changed what used to be not allowed around here and yet no one told me this has changed. I don’t mind, is just awesome we can do it now.

You know you were not allowed to use game screenshots in your previews? You didn’t know?

Well it doesn’t matter because now is allowed.

Awesome, no?

But surely games are copyrighted. Seems strange that you can use them.

it must be allowed :) there is no doubt about it.

there is even the name of the game on the image.

(not a new item anyway but quite popular so this changes in rules happened from quite some time)

too bad I was not informed
