Hello Nitroz,

Thanks for showing us your files. The files look good with soft, metallic gradients, and look well structured. However, they lack the feel that I feel they should have. Perhaps try to add some type of stroke to them, so they are more visible on all backgrounds.

I think that you have got off to a great start with this item, and I hope that you will be able to improve them so you we can see them approved for sale on the marketplace.

Good luck!
Thomas

Yes, if you want objective and quality advice it is necessary that you post a preview image here, so we can give you suggestions etc. on what to improve so hopefully you can get your item approved for sale.

Awesome, you’ve got some brilliant work here, and you’ve made a good amount of money in a short time! :)

You’ll be one of the great authors of GraphicRiver I think!

Congratulations, and good luck for the future,
Thomas

Hmm, July was my first month, so I have no idea. My sales were lovely for a first month I guess. :)

Wow, you’ve made a huge number of sales in such a short space of time! Wish you the best for the future! :)

I can truly understand your frustration at this eventuality, I’m sure that I would be extremely annoyed, and I know that the others in that situation were extremely frustrated.

Unfortunately, I’m not sure what I can suggest as a course of action that could help your predicament. I think that contacting support would be a beneficial avenue to take until we are able to discover why they feel that the prior made items have the right to monopolise.

But as I’ve said, Envato is a unique concept, and for the most part works extremely well, and I think that they will need to iron out some flaws for the good of the marketplaces.

If you are unable to get it onto the Envato marketplace, then I would strongly suggest that you follow Raincutter’s advice, and try to get noticed on sites like DeviantArt, or a design blog, as that has the potential to get your already existing items coverage and sales.

I hope this helped, if you want any more advice feel free to e-mail me!

P.S: Your portfolio is really good, you’re a very talented designer. :)

This in fact is a very common question/complaint on the Envato marketplace, as some say that only allowing those that first create a style to have that type of file, is monopolising that part of the market.

The main problem with something like this (i.e. the marketplace) is that it is new and therefore they need to see how it advances and make changes accordingly, an issue like this may force the marketplace to change, as it is mentioned so many times on different occasions.

With regards to your item, it does look very nice, and it’s a shame that it’s not been accepted on the marketplace. :(

Agreed, the response was disgusting, and you do deserve a lot more from authors than that, especially since you are such a significant presence on the marketplace.

I hope that this issue can be resolved. :)

Wow, looks an extremely nice mouse, I would love one of those, be especially great for gaming, with the precision aim button. :)

One thing strikes me as odd is the “Zero-latency”, whilst it’s possible to reduce it a lot, zero is always impossible. :P
