I don’t necessarily have stats to support the theory, but I’m fairly confident that the price increase didn’t have a negative affect on sales.

If we approved only 2-5 projects per day, your projects would be sitting in the queue for months!

The best thing every author can do is work on “searchability” of their items and concentrate on better promoting their overall portfolios. Writing good item descriptions and using descriptive tags helps customers who actually search for items instead of browsing through a few easily accessible pages.

Relying on exposure from the front page or New Items page is never a good long-term solution.

It was likely categorized wrong by the author and accepted into the MG category by mistake. It’s not really that big of a deal, but I fixed it.

Any time there is a recognizable human face in any marketplace item, you must submit a signed model release form. If there are multiple people in the shot, you must submit a signed form for each person.

every month theres a new free file
errrr…duh – i gathered that – maybe that’;s why it’s called ‘Free File of the Month

How would the author get paid if the file is “free”? ;)

But really. What’s wrong with including ‘4k’, ‘loop’ and even ‘logo’ in your titles.

Yes they may/may not be filtered. but if i was a new as a buyer, looking for Fluffy Clouds in 4k. I am going to type Fluffy Clouds 4k in the search. And i want a list of all 4k fluffy clouds that describe this clearly in the title. I dont want to waste my time filtering.

As it stands now, if i type Fluffy Clouds, i get a thousand items, and have to spend my time searching for those that are 4k…. All because Envato refuse to allow authors to use the words 4K in the title.

Lets us put the actually descriptor in the title!!!

Actually, you can see the resolution of the clip in the short description right next to each search item in list view. It may not be displayed in the most visually appealing manner, but maybe the only issue here is presenting that information in a more digestible format so that it’s easier to scan with your eyes to pick out the clips that you’re looking for.

Or, maybe it’s possible for the devs to allow for a separate resolution filter option that will show clips that are of a certain resolution, therefore removing any doubt what the resolution of a clip is. If you want to search 4K clips only, you could click a “4K” filter and see only clips listed as 4K. Just an idea…

The Author Knowledgeable is currently being updated to include a list of words we don’t accept in the titles, however, in the meantime, we’re trying to weed out the submissions that do contain these words.

off course this is not your job (how the marketplace interface/website works) but I can’t visit that knowledge database very often and read everything each time just to check if something had been updated/changed/removed.

We need a better system

I agree with you that the system could be better and more automated (it would certainly make things easier!), but I do know that there are certain limitations inherent within the current system that is in place.

I completely understand that you can’t or don’t want to check the Knowledgebase frequently. But that’s partially what the reviewers are here for… to make authors aware of changes or things that we do and don’t accept.

We aren’t saying they’re not important, we just don’t accept them in titles. The search results aren’t based on the text in the title alone.

A title such as “Clouds in a Blue Sky” is much cleaner and more professional looking than “Clouds in a Blue Sky 4K Time Lapse Looping Dolly Shot” :)

Adding those terms to a well-written item description and to the tags is just as important – if not more important – than adding them to the title.

savastgfx, you’re now aware of the rule :)

The Author Knowledgeable is currently being updated to include a list of words we don’t accept in the titles, however, in the meantime, we’re trying to weed out the submissions that do contain these words.

Again, small things such as this will unfortunately slip through on occasion. An issue of whether we miss a “4K” in the title has no bearing on the quality of its content or the number of sales an item will generate.
