This is a marketplace ,all classic lows of capitalism are at work. There isn’t any attempt on equality here or brotherhood of man.
Its even rude to suggest things that directly concern Envato’s business model.Though I see your point and agree but its just not how the world works.
We shouldn’t be McDonalds’ , this will make this place TemplateMonster in the longRun and that’s not good. Sometimes, “much” is not better.
I have to disagree..
Many Authors are here are not one man army. They are mostly a team with 2-15 members. In that case, They will be able to upload many items in short span.
However, Some authors are just modifying their existing item with some colors an typography to create new items. This should be banned.PS: they will not start fake accounts because of the commission structure.
But I think even a 50 author army shouldn’t be a reason to fill up the marketplace with an interval like this.
Once upon a time there was an author who was uploaded 10+ items in an Ecommerce category (TrueStory; If I am not mistaken it was the OpenCart category) IN THE SAME DAY.
Thanks very much for participating anyway, and letting us know about your thoughts, friend. I really appreciate it.
I really appreciate the time you have given into this, thank you very much for that.
I really don’t have anything else to say on this matter, I hope the Envato staff considers my suggestion.
Again, as authors we are all in the same boat and thanks for letting the community know about your thoughts on this matter. I wish you the best sales.
SpaceStockFootage saidWhat would you prefer?
What would your idea fix though? If you’re happy for these three items to be approved over a period of three weeks, then why would you not be happy for them to be approved over a period of one day?
- 10 items uploaded in 10 weeks?
- Or 10 items uploaded in 2 weeks? (So “author” have 50 items in 10 weeks)
(so the first author released 10 items in 10 weeks, but the abuser author is already uploaded 50 items in exactly same period and crowded the marketplace)
Which behavior is open to abuse and tricks, and which is creating more cacophony?
The answer is crystal clear.
If there is a company creating themes that have a whole department working on different themes and a whole different department working on bug testing and the like… then it’s not out of the ordinary for them to happen to finish three projects in one day. It just seems like you’re looking for a solution to something other than what you actually feel the problem is.
No, that’s not the case, the case is “abuse”.
What about if author has 10 to 15 team members ?
anyways this is not works.
my personal suggestion is don’t west your time on this forms giving to them ideas and bugs information. they don’t care about us. you can’t get any official replays.
I absolutely disagree especially with the part “don’t waste your time on this forms giving to them ideas and bugs information. they don’t care about us”
So please let us know, how “don’t mentioning the bugs on the forums” will serve to anything?
Well, what a FORUM IS FOR? Please let us know.
This is for THEMEFOREST.
The SAME USER shouldn’t be able to upload a NEW item unless a week has passed from the last time they uploaded an item. (Yes, I know they’ll start to open fake accounts but anyway…)
Some users are extremely abusing some categories and it’s really enough.
Envato, are you sure about the quality of the items when an author uploads 3 items in just 1 day ; especially when the rendering must be tested on 40+ different mediums including mobiles desktops and browsers? Do you really believe that it’s possible to upload 3 items in a single day without some “tricks”?
Even if the uploaded items are the “bestOfTheBest”, you should still prevent this practice. There should be at least a week between new items.
Here is my experience : I purchased an item on codecanyon and i was looking for support. Comments is the only way , if envato can put support button on item details page that will be awesome. What do you think?
Comments is not the only way ;
(if the authors of the item don’t already have a support forum of their own) “email” is the way to go by sending a message from their author profile page.
Here is the link for you to send support tickets if you need.
PS: Friends, “sending a support ticket” is almost hidden in the marketplaces, it would be very hard to find for newcomers to send a support ticket. Don’t you think that it must be easier to send a support ticket, especially for those who’s here for the very first time?
Envato should absolutely rethink their affiliate program, and Envato should do it by considering Google’s new strategies on SERPs. Affiliate Marketing is not as easy as it were 5-6 years ago (to be honest, it’s far and far from being easy; Panda, Penguin, updates ; etc. etc.)
A market’s “affiliateProgram” should be lucrative, and not only for those who started 7 years ago, but also for NEW promoters.
Now, the competition among affiliate marketers are already very strong, especially in the niches like, WordPressThemes, LandingPages, HTML Templates, Flyers, Brochures etc. etc.
And Envato is acting like, “don’t waste time to promote our marketplace because our affiliate system will not make money for you ; it will not worth your time”...
Affiliate Marketing is really hard, and the rewards should be worth the ammount of time and effort put by affiliates.
Envato should give a percentage of commission from each sale of the SAME product, which is promoted by an affiliate.
Affiliate Marketing is the easiest and the most cost effective way to promote a marketplace. Let your affiliate marketers do it for uncomparable low costs. But first, create an affiliate system that’s REALLY attractive and REALLY works for the affiliate marketers.
With the current state (one of the worst Affiliate Marketing Program on the entire web), no one will promote Envato, you can be sure about that.
Envato, why don’t you examine what your competitors’ afiliate marketing programs are offering to their affiliates?
Would you waste your time to promote your own marketplace in such conditions?
Please rethink about this, Envato.
Hi friends, as an author I absolutely understand OUR concerns, but I am sure that as always we will be getting our money on 15th(17th on monday) ; and we also have a thread here..:
Edit: And it’s the same for me too, my withdrawal is also not calculated yet. I am sure there is nothing unusual though.
