GET OUT WHILE YOU CAN !!1
Before too long you’ll be waking up in the middle of the night needing to check to see if you’ve had any more sales…
It’s pretty obvious which recently added item you’re talking about. For what it’s worth, I thought the exact same thing when I saw it – reminded me of your work.
Extremely cool, really nice idea! All works a treat (although I did just lose connection though).
This is definitely going to be great for killing some time at work
Where I work, we have a session which means that if you’ve been inactive for a period of time (i.e. not progressing to the next page) then it drops any stored info collected in that session. It is so that you don’t waste server load holding information about people who have abandoned the page. For us at work, we do it after 3 hours – but we only collect text data so we can hold it for that long without issue. Here they are collecting several files sometimes with huge file sizes.
Judging by the fact that all the sales related stats are now only updated every 24 hours (when it used to be every hour) – I’d say they are having server load issues and are trying to ease that where ever possible. So their session time out is probably set to be pretty low, keep your submission time short and you shouldn’t have any issues.
Might be wrong, but that’s my impression of it.
I do exactly the same as Giallo, write everything before hand in a text-editor (even keywords) so I can copy and paste it in. If you take too long it tends to return ‘page not found’. Once it has done it once, you need to completely exit your browser and go back it – clicking back and trying again tends to just make it error again.
Good luck with your files!
I was wondering why I cannot see your paw even though you have 2 sales..?.... Maybe a bug… it will be sorted out if it is.I noticed the same thing, the developers seem to add more bugs than additional functionality…!
Anyway, congratulations JinWook – I’m sure it’ll be the start of many sales to come!
I do love these ‘lets all have a group hug’ threads
Well I uploaded my first item well over a year ago, but then getting married, moving house and getting a promotion at work all kind of got in the way of my plans for world domination…! I then re-discovered this place at the start of this year and have managed to get a few more files up, some I’m reasonably proud of.
My general feeling towards my own portfolio is that it’s a bit ‘tacky’, I think I made too many files in response to other popular files – which isn’t really the best way to go about it. To much gloss and gradients…
I’m also a very competitive person, but channel that more into the ‘Top Authors’ list and various other comparisons – which I check every day! I’ve also kicked myself at some simple ideas done well which have sold like crazy (Smirnoff, I’m looking at you!). It’s really exciting at the moment, a lot of newer people coming along and doing very well – keeps me motivated to get some new and improved files on. By the looks of it, the weekly top sellers this week is going to contain a lot of items by brand new authors.
I currently have a file in the queue for ThemeForest, but agree it is completely terrifying – I’m just imagining the reviewers or community (if it gets approved!) laughing at me for my poor efforts. I get the feeling that ThemeForest is more ‘serious business’, and doesn’t quite have such a friendly community as GR.
The main thing I get out of this is creative development, I’m getting so much better because of this community. Almost every month I look back on the previous months work and think I could do it much better now.
Looking forward to what everyone else says!
I’m male, 24 – I live in Bedfordshire, UK with my wife and our dog. I work for an eCommerce company and do this on the side because I can be way more creative than during the day job…!
Hey I’m an oldieDon’t worry, you’re already putting us younger members to shame – you’re portfolio rocks (and you seem to be doing pretty well with sales too)!
One great way is to patiently answer question after question for new users who are too lazy to read for themselves.
just one question:Ha!
Congratulations on your first sale and your enthusiasm is awesome, but maybe slow down with the thread creating…?
