I’ve created this thread with only 1 purpose: IMO “Yay! n-sales” threads are stupid. Imagine cashiers at the supermarket constantly yelling “Yay! n-sales”. Cool ha?

I agree. But, not every cashier at the supermarket is as passionate as the community here. In todays digital age, it is fantastic that anyone, and I mean anyone can go online, be good at something and actually see income immediately. Totally unheard of not to long ago.

I know so many people who set so many goals for them self – to get 1 sale, 10 sales, 50 sales 100 sales etc; and it is so gratifying to accomplish those goals.

Of course there should be a time and place for that, which you have created for us – but sometimes seeing “Congrats!”, “Nice work, keep it up!” is truly motivating, pushing that person closer to their next goal. One of the reasons why I love this community.

Now, 1 person alone, cool not so many messages, but Envato has 2.7MM members! Crazy awesome! That inturn means many more Yay posts its just simple math.

I think there should be a place for people to post stuff like that to, maybe someplace MORE official, and ofcourse like anything, once its created it will take time for people to understand where to post.

But dont worry to much, it will be ok :)

Just my two cents.

yay-threads = self promotion = noise = me so sad = me no read forum

yay-threads = self promotion = noise = me so sad = no read yay-threads = problem solved

:D
Haha, true, but there’s a lot of other random noise… I just feel like this forum could be so interesting and worthwhile – but it’s just not :(

I guess I can’t say that my posts are adding much value either :D

I like these posts. I just posted one myself : )

It is motivating to be congratulated on achieving a milestone, regardless of what that milestone is, as long as it represents something to the person posting. Perhaps Envato could start a “Milestones” forum or something similar?

Since many of us probably spend much of our time working alone, connecting with fellow designers here is one opportunity to hang out with peers and share our collective experience.
