Just thinking about this for a second and anyone could easily be on the #1 spot after some sales… Sales divided by number of files…. If someone makes lets say 1000 sales on 100 items that would be a 10. But now that this hypothetical person has 1000 sales and then just deletes 95 of the 100 files… Well that kind of just put that person as a possible top spot forever.

1/ ”... having a huge portfolio can easily get you in the first positions…”

Sometimes it’s easy to get hate and jealousy to one’s top positions and big portfolios, while obviously not that easy to get it created, produced, distributed and approved for selling…

2/ ”...Well I didn’t meant to ask for new ranking implementation with this post…”

Exactly!... While you should rather ask Envato about that… Why we are still limited with this primitive ranking of small mutimedia market called FlashDen, where some of us started 6-7 years ago?... Even for sales there obviously could be separate rankings for live footage, motion graphics, templates, etc… with different customizable options…

3/ And for what you’re starting that absurd personal comparison of incomparable art business achievements of individual talented authors like Maupa made a few perfect AE-logos… and the great photo-video-print team corporations like Pressmaster … One may be spend alone 1 day per week on generic laptop , while other for sure manage to run 24/7 with a production teams on a few locations with a lot of hi-tech equipment…

3/ Any discussion about the local ’’top selling quality and portfolio quantity’’ would be again absurd and funny when you are not trying to analyze it in dynamics and in context of many other economical, social, cultural and psychological aspects of various global media stocking trends…

4/ There are different trading and marketing strategies and tactics, and purchasing needs and interest as well… Shortly one authors and buyers could focus on a few most popular main-stream items with 1000-sales for each… Other could be interested in 1000-items with a few sales for each… The tastes, needs, genres and technics vary by many many many subjective and objective reasons changing in times and minds…

5/ Nobody knows… I guess in a few years all the good selling templates will become old fashioned and their technics will be commonly known, and nobody would be interested to get them even for free … But some of the original motion graphics and live footage will be selling for ever… as the unique artistic masterpieces and vintage samples…

6/ ”... I’m more interested in guys like…”

Just follow your favourite authors, and do not blame others also favourite for others…

7/ “IMPROVE THE SEARCH (and the follow functionality, so that when I find a great author I can bookmark and manage the or their work in the way that I want to)”

Absolutely!... Envato needs ASAP a modern sophisticated search, exposure and promotion systems with various customization options… And this is now the REAL TOP-ic of this thread…

Best, VM ;)

I was going to reply to this thread but you nailed it… 100% agree with every word you said.

At the end of the day, I had ONE sale reversal thus far, and I make roughly 400-500 sales a month… seriously now, sale reversals count for 0.0000000005 of my sales, so I don’t really care!
Enabled, if I calculate 1/500 it gives the number 0.002 and not 0.0000000005. I don’t mean the reversals as big thing to consider but your number is in-accurate by 7 decimal points – huge! :D

pretty sure he was trying to say out of all his sales ever.

50% of the earnings go to the authors. So if the bundle is $25 and there is lets say 10,000 sales it would mean $125,000 is going to all the authors in the bundle. Then lets say your file costs $10 that would be about 1.75% to 2% depending how much over $500 the bundle is(since the bundle always is OVER $500 in the bundle). So that would be around $2500-$2125 in earnings. Obviously all this changes when you have a different price for your item and there are less(or more) sales of the bundle.

Ah geez, I actually just came back from a trip to California to both LA & SF. Don’t think I can pull off flying back to the west coast unfortunately.
