I would suggest two things:

1) I find it a bit simplistic and it doesn’t really wow me – but that may be just me 2) may be the main problem is that as a logo 184053template” it’s not versatile enough. Basically if you don’t call your company F square or E square you will not have any use for this logo

My items always take 5 days or more, so anything less I would regard as a success.

A couple of years ago there was a revolution going on in these forums about review times. Before that items used to be reviewed in a days time or 2. All of a sudden it became five or six days. Everybody was going crazy and Envato kept updating us with all sorts of promises of how this was going to change. More reviewers, new review management, new review guidelines, bla bla bla

I said at the time that it won’t change. Like any big corp Envato just sat it out. Just waited long enough until all of us got used to the fact that it will take 5 days or more. Now nobody is complaining any more it’s just become a fact.

That’s just how it is, we’ll just have to live with it. It won’t change. I say it again now, and I will be right again :)

There’s worse things in life, as long as you are aware of it will be okay :)

Cheers

Happens … especially in the flyers category, but all others, too.

One thing you can check are referrals. If you got a lot of referrals from an external page which may have disappeared, there may be a reason.

But all in all, there are ups and downs, even these dramatic ones…

Some parts of the upload page I think are in Flash. When Flash crashes, they disappear.

@nico: icon is too big in relation to text. You could not place this on a letterhead. Hence the rejection, you can’t actually use it this way.

This is not down to opinion. You can vary the size a little, but if it’s so out of relation you could not even put this on a business card that’s where opinion stops and it’s simply not acceptable.

Try putting it on a busness card and trit it out – just for testing, you’ll see it will be unusable.

Having said that: shape is great, idea is great – just balance it out and you’re done.

The extended licence allows you to resell.

The normal licence will only allow you to create artwork and sell to one customer. So not as part of a template.

Personally I would try and get in touch with an author. If for example you like an icon set, why not strike a deal with the author of the icon set you like? I think that makes most sense. Licenses are good and important, but they are also crazy :)

I don’t think I have any items you would be interested in for a website template, but speaking for myself I would happily agree for you to purchase a normal licence, and then use my items in your template either for a buck per sale, or a mention on your profile page or any other deal that might make sense from person to person.

Then again, I still believe in hand shakes, I’m old-fashioned that way :)

A hard rejection on an elaborate item without explanation is not cool!

I wouldn’t waste my time. If you are sure that your item is fine, get an account on a competitors market and just sell it there.

You will not get any feedback on hard rejected items. I do understand that on much of the rubbish that gets submitted here. But if it really is an elaborate item where you can see how much work was put into it, I find that really disrespectful.

I’ve just worked almost 2 months on my latest item which I will submit today. I’m sure it will get approved, but if it doesn’t I would assume I should at least get some feedback. and if I don’t, I’ll just sell it on another market.

No point getting aggravated about it :)

Cheers

Chris

this is very nice!

I don’t think you need to add any more detail.

But make sure you get the relation between the graphic and the text right. At the moment I think the graphic is to big. Or to make sure that the tagline isn’t to fine to be read in smaller sizes.

So play around with it a little and balance it out. Then I think you have a very nice logo there..

Cheers

Ok, that’s the point. I will show you soon.

PS

Just look what I found :)

http://graphicriver.net/item/happy-world-logo/3881653

That’s a nice logo. Just because the globe shape is similar to yours doesn’t mean it isn’t. If you look at it as a whole it has a concept, it’s nicely executed, it has a nice balance, iit has nice colours, it has the appropriate fonts, it has the right hierachy and rhythm. It has everything I explained about the basics of getting a logo right.

You can’t just judge it on the shape, and just because the shape is similar to yours doesn’t mean that yours was a good logo. It wasn’t. I wrote extensively on why it wasn’t. Just the round shape is not a logo. It’s the whole thing together. And as such, I think that’s a nice logo.

Cheers

@Bunch: I’m not sure I understand what you mean, but why would that logo not be approved?

Looks like a nice logo to me. Says in the comments it also has greyscale and black and white versions. So this has nicely detailed version, then synthesised iconic version, and then black and white and grey scale versions.

Looks to me like this has everything you need.

Or did I not understand you correctly?
