I decided to stop uploading here because of that exclusivity rule. Without exclusivity 33% is way to low comparing with my amount of work. The real money ($5000+ in 3 weeks) can be made by participating in deals. There are many sites offering me opportunity to participate in deals. But here nobody can do this with this exclusivity on. Envato can implement a possibility here that allows authors to team up in deals. Clients love deals!

1. Too many fonts and sizes 2. Do not include in your design social icons. 3. Bad colors choices. 4. I’m not a big fan of photos on BC and you use all the team. Keep it simple. 5. Not sure about bleed with these lines. 6. Do not use script fonts in small sizes.

I think I’m officially done uploading my work to GraphicRiver. I just can’t do it. I’m getting good results from another marketplace where I set my own price and get 70% of each sale without having to be exclusive there. So what’s the incentive when my work gets priced too low here (often half of what it sells for elsewhere) and I get just 33%?

Let’s go, Envato. The competition is putting you guys to shame. At the very least you need to get the prices up so that we’re getting better royalties on sales. Right now we get hit hard twice with low prices AND low royalty percentages.

I’m done uploading here until I see some changes.

+1 same here

Congrats! 3 years for a front page promotion. Definitely we are far to many for this website and Envato do nothing about that. Same old promotion system like 5 years ago can’t serve so many authors now in 2014.

Simply do a back-up and format your PC or overclock your CPU to help them with more power :)

Your elements are to close to margins. Learn about bleed margins, trim line and safe area. Beside that your BC is not creative. In my opinion your design will be rejected.

Followers are useless here on Envato. Don’t waste your time on this.
