When I read the title, I was hoping that it was about something else.
Namely, I think that the upload form deserves some “love” and changes, and also some automation. It is probably not needed for most of you who only produce AE templates, but for us who submit stock footage the upload process is real PITA and many things can be improved. That said, I know that there were some experimental changes to the upload form page recently (only available for some users) but IMHO it was only for the worse :/
Anybody else has any thoughts about this? Or am I hijacking a topic (in which case I’m sorry…)?
I have some videos with business people, but not with a group of them. Anyway, feel free to search through my portfolio, maybe you’ll find something interesting

OMG! You even beat Scott Wills!!!
You are now officially new god of Envato marketplaces!
I am selling less and less videos, as it seems… And with 1300+ footage files in my portfolio (and still growing…) it is a statistical improbability… these days I usually get sales for videos which have already been bought a few times in the past, or at least that’s my impression…
Imho, the whole point of new search functionality was to provide buyers to discover files they need, not to provide yet another place where already popular files will be promoted and those less popular to get buried even more.
I am commenting like this because so far I’ve read in a few occasions that sales are (or are going to be) used to boost search rankings… Why would it matter? If it does matter, buyers should be able to sort by sales and that’s it, why use sales as a default parameter to boost search ranking…?
The same applies to new VS old items – if needed, there should be a sort functionality. I know it might be important for ThemeForest, CodeCanyon, or for AE templates (where newer items use more modern technologies/techniques) but what about music, sound effects, photos, footage…? Does the upload really matter? It can only make things worse imho.
Different marketplace segments should be approached differently, there just can’t be the same pattern for everything anymore… Or am I wrong? Am I missing something?
Let’s think about how this can be useful for ThemeForest and you’ll see how it magically gets implemented in a few weeks…
