@cyzer @digitalscience My kitten could be brothers with yours :)

I can see the resemblance, perhaps distant cousins separated by the great continental shift of Pangaea ;)

Don’t worry I’m sure Envato will come up with a solution because…

Why are you shouting? Use the comments section on the item you purchased, and the author will be able to assist you further.

I agree that quality standards should be increased – this will slow down the rate of new files approved and thus increase exposure to new files – the problem with this “filtering” though is it’s done by humans (reviewers) which means it’s not always going to be reliable. (hence this thread)

By simply adding better filtering by sorting by sales and time period, we have a filtering mechanism controlled by an automated system – which is far more reliable. The system will automatically filter out files that don’t sell, and show buyers files that do sell based on the time period selected. Problem solved.

Why this topic keeps coming up, is because exposure of new items is dependent on the competency of humans… an automated system with complex filtering options would be a fail safe system, and will always auto correct itself regardless of what reviewers approve, and then we won’t have any threads like this anymore – that’s for sure.

digitalscience, mate I feel you, I really do, but the point of this topic was the quality of the submissions lately, not exposure time.

If the topic of quality standards was coming up, it means it’s effecting exposure and sales of quality files. Why else would it come up by a top author? Exposure of new items is the route cause of this thread… If we had better filtering options and authors uploaded crap, it wouldn’t effect new high quality submissions at all.

Next argument ;)

Besides the home page exposure battle between high quality and poor quality files, another reason why we need a better filtering option is this scenario.

An author develops a theme for 6 months which is priced at $55, they’ll be lucky to get a day or two of exposure on the home page. On the same home page there are several One Page PSD themes and coming soon pages going for $10 which can be created in a few days to a week which don’t really sell well. Buyers are more likely to purchase whole completed themes.

How can it be fair if both types of files have equal amount of exposure on the home page? Sorting by sales + upload date will solve this problem.
