Hey Justin, thanks for the reply. Although things are still fuzzy, I’m glad there are some “visible” efforts. It seems like you’re on your way to improve our marketplaces, and I just hope you’ll do it soon.
By the way, I just read your Notes post. Since you’re the UX guy, I have a question, or better yet – a request.
It always puzzled me why there is an option to browse marketplaces by categories by levels (like here: http://audiojungle.net/category/all in the right column, when you open a category, you get a list of sub-levels) and there isn’t such an option in user portfolio listing. There are quite a few of us authors with rather big portfolios and I don’t see a reason not to make it easier to browse what we have to offer. If you take a look at my portfolio (for example, AudioJungle portfolio) and try to browse it, you’ll end up screaming and running! And there are some authors with even more items than me! Please take a look into it and find a way to make it possible to filter portfolio view into categories and sub-categories while browsing in addition to “show all” like it is now.
Happy anniversary! Here’s to many more to come!
Congrats! It’s a nice feeling, isn’t it?
I think it’s best not to think about Envato buyers as if they were kindergarten morons who will read a thread and turn their world around, based on what some random guy on the internet posted. Unless they think: “I need two sets of icons, a WP theme and a video project. Oh, look, a thread. Screw it all”. As you see, everyone is strongly sticking to their own opinions and most buyers are much more confident in knowing what they want and why they want it. They don’t come here to make themselves feel better. If it was so easy to influence casual buyers (who visit the forums in case of emergencies anyway) by posting threads, then we would have a very strong profit model.
I never said anybody here is a moron. And while we’re at it, I don’t think that, either.
Btw, I remember that some buyers stated on forums now and then about buying some files even if they didn’t need them at the moment. There is “unintentional” buying even on Envato, and it’s not so hard to imagine with so many professionally made previews
Now, just to make myself clear, I never meant to imply that your thread can cause a mass hysteria or something like that. But still, even in this thread you have examples of people who read only your title and left a comment, without reading the article you linked…
P.S. To put some laughter into this: there’s a joke about a scrooge who fell into depression and was advised to buy something to feel better… He was indecisive but after all he did it… He spent $200! What did he buy? He bought 154 euros
Everyone has the right to their own opinion. I personally don’t usually buy something I don’t need, although I probably do it sometimes. But I don’t like limiting myself. If I wanna buy it and if I can buy/afford it and if that’s at nobody’s cost (for example, I’m not spending money meant for food on something else…) then I’ll do it. Unless you have some greater goal for which you’re saving your money, then piling your money is meaningless act…
On the other hand, what I’m really concerned about here is the title of this thread. You know, even if they don’t post regularly here, I am sure there are quite a lot of buyers dropping by at these Forums. And I don’t want them, or anybody else, to have any wrong ideas because of this kind of titles. These are the marketplaces after all, places where people ARE supposed to buy stuff My 2 cents…
I’ve received an official answer from the Twitter trademark support person:
“Thank you for your inquiry. The Twitter “t” is several years retired from use as the Twitter logo. Additionally, we ask that there be no alteration or sale of our marks.”
I’d recommend leaving the hot potato on the table
I’m still investigating about the RSS icon. I found for sure that it’s licensed under the GPL licence, but I’m still struggling with understanding the license because it’s written in formal English which makes it harder for me to “process” it It would be wonderful if somebody could help me with understanding whether the works released under the GPL license can be edited and published/sold as stock files or not.
new update on the abovementioned issue: it seems like it only marks just the toppest new sale with green triangle,not all (when I have multiple new unseen sales). at least that’s how it’s been for the past couple of days…
