Hey Emre, I think the problem may be specific to the engine version you’re using. I did a test in Great White and didn’t experience the same behavior:
Each png has a 3 pixel transparent border. Here’s the code:
And the xml file:
I’d like to see a “Featured Buyer” blog series. Take some of the big buyers here and ask them all sorts of interesting questions about their FlashDen experience. It would would be great to hear their thoughts. And add some money to their account for completing the interview and being such an awesome FlashDen member.
see the templates i am talkin about are not xml based
This is why I suggested buy FlashDen templates. They’re mostly xml based. I have worked with a few non-xml based templates from other sites and in my opinion they’re so difficult to customize they should be sold with a big fat warning stating so.
^ I definitely think it should be optional. I guess me theory is that when someone is rating an item they’re (hopefully) thinking about the item and therefore some thoughts may come to mind that they could quickly jot down.
Well I thought that we would receive explanation/review for the reasons behind each rating, including five stars. And maybe there would not be much change to the rating system, but I think that this way we could really know how to improve the quality of our files, based on the customer feedback. But… that’s my opinion
I like the idea of an option to leave a comment when rating. It would be a tremendous opportunity to help us not only improve our files but allow us to better understand the buyer. Sure this can be done on the item’s page but if someone takes the time to rate something it’s much more convenient for them to include a few comments while they rate.
I think Ezza makes a good point in that the problem is most people don’t rate. What if Envato set up an incentive program. Something like $1 added to your account every time you rate 5 files?
That’s awesome Emroni! This issue rings a bell but I can’t quite put my finger on it. Maybe the vectors/pngs need to be slightly larger to fill up the plane?
So I would have met your client, but I wouldn’t have given any free mockups (ideas yes). We never do that here at vuzum, and we bargain on budget only when we can negotiate on timeframe.
Bobocel I’ve checked out your sites. Looks like their doing great!
But if its a major job then think about it . i just got a major job abut 3 month work and for that we did a few mockups for them.
I think you’re right Tsafi. If the earning potential was substantial I would probably do it. But I agree with how that no-spec website says that if a client has a small budget and requires mock-ups their doing a disservice to themselves because most talented designers won’t participate.
