I smashed my keyboard after a last episode. Time for a new one.
And yeah, you don`t need to be a brainiac to realise that this isn`s about item promotion. It`s all about $$$. There are 1000 more ways to promote an item or category rather than a selling items for “almost-a-free” price. Envato really struggles to keep up a trend of these bundles. If you look on they official bundles website you`ll notice that there is a bundle every few months. I really don`t like this.
P.S. Recently you had microlancer banner at the top of the pages and I think it’s a great way of promoting stuff.
Could Envato really try something new except of the bundles?! VideoHive authors asking for some crucial features since 2010. E.G. Video Rollovers, better and improved video player,...etc. “Inventing” something like a rollover (mouse) player shouldn`t be a nuclear physic to you guys. All your competitors sites have that feature. And you should pay more attention to the authors themselves and they requests, not only $$$.
Here is one local:
At the opening of the Olympic Games director brought a local resident to read the introductory text. At first, he stood confused and did not say anything. And then he says: “OooooooOoooooooo”. The crowd was all excited echoed him: “Ooooooooooooo”. And after about thirty seconds he reads again: “OoooOooooooooooo.” The crowd again repeated: “OoooooOoooooo”. After the third time director approached him angry and says, “You idiot, read that below, these are the Olympic rings.”
I have printed big poster and stick it to my wall. It says “APRIL” with big and bolded IMPACT font.
1. I think that it is legal. 2. Why would they? That guy reffered a lot of other members, and maybe helped to sell some of your items. In my opinion that is not so bad.
EDIT: In some way, they are like marketing managers. They help to sell the product and they get percentage of doing that.
Great achievement Mocarg.
My opinion is that they shouldn`t bother VH authors. They should require from Envato devs better AudioJunge search system. I think that main problem on AJ is lack of avanced search and things like specific tags (duration, mood, instruments, etc.). Finding right track on AJ is like finding needle in a haystack. Once I tried to find something on AJ and I got old.
There is another forum thread with similar topic.http://videohive.net/forums/thread/see-your-videohive-member-photo/34419
