Well done, Envato. There couldn’t have been a better outcome for the situation. :)

First off, I’m proud to have reached 800 sales, mostly due to 4 items in particular. :)

I want to point something out that I’ve witnessed over the course of nearly 3 years:

We’ve had some scary stuff happen in the past from the Heartbleed incident, to VAT Tax policies, to referral cut reversals and rampant 1-star ratings. You know what all these things had in common?

We survived them all! :D

And you know something, life is still roughly the same on Envato; nothing really has changed on a fundamental level outside of some functional and cosmetic improvements. Envato is still Envato, and no matter what happens in the future, be it bright or dark, it’ll still be business as usual for most people, and to me, that’s a comforting thought.

What about you?

This is the public moan zone, this very thread. Important lesson? Yes. But there are better ways to approach it than this.

If you can’t do something by yourself, hire someone who can.

I tried to open a shop on Unity Asset Store earlier today and quickly found that it’s more than I can handle.

I spent the next five hours pulling my hair out, mostly troubleshooting problems instead of uploading assets. The description text kept getting truncated and the formatting was messed up, and I had no way to fix that in Unity. I had to reinstall the engine, reinstall the Asset Store Tools in order to upload the asset packs as “packages” and all the while, I didn’t realize that I had already published this particular pack I was working on through my partner who runs a shop of his own on the Asset Store.

Ladies and gentlemen, take my advice…if you can’t do it by yourself, don’t try to. It’s an incredibly frustrating job. Get some help if you can. ._.

I can’t run a store to save my life; thank god there are people who can.

Do you Aussies have Flake bars like we Brits do? :)
I seem to remember that when I visited Australia yes, they had Flakes and other Cadbury’s chocolate bars. Why? Is yours a 99, Blinn? :)

We have Flake 99’s but we also have them in wrapped bars, which are twice as big as the 99’s. :)

No way this happens on TF :) Good for you! We just experienced 50% drop of income from one week to another. So… a sad end of February and star of April .

Yeah, but you’re an Elite Author. :D

I live in the UK, so I think the closest thing we have to a Tim Tam is a Penguin Bar. If Tim Tams are as good as Penguin Bars, I’ll be in for a treat when I go back to the USA. :)
Hi Blinn! They are indeed very, very similar to Penguins, but I would describe them as half as light, and taste twice as good. Which I guess is why I eat twice as many. ;)
