@enabled Do you realize that we are now hijacking your thread because Doru’s thread about that topic got closed?

maybe move all these comments to the locked thread because for my part this debate is done.

will give one week to see if anything changes and if not will create a new thread to clarify if what we are talking about is allowed after all

Got answer from report
We will have it investigated and take appropriate action if necessary.
Time will tell…
There you go! :)
Not more than hot air till now… When you have actually done something we can start to believe again :)

well I think it will take some time to verify and maybe get someone higher in the staff into the equation.

the result will be probably a clean item page.

I’m not asking for anything more than this, because I give the benefit of the doubt. Not everyone knows the rules. I know is author duty to know them but since till now rules were split in many locations and even in thin air (unwritten rules :) ) it may happen to not know them. It depends of author history of rule infringements off course but a heavy approach is never a good choice.

the $2 surcharge is now going completely to envato and is not getting split up between the author and envato, like in the past.

So when you sometimes in the past wondered why you earned around $1 more for the same item, then that was because the buyer didn’t purchased with deposited money, but paid directly via paypal and then a fee of $2 is added to the item price.

Now you will always get only your share of the item price, not a share of this $2 on top.

nooo :D

was trying to make MediaSfx read the whole thread, now you’ve ruined my plan :)

You see, Doru refrains from using Support, even after he got redirected to that channel by you. He completely lost faith in that communication channel

Yes and no. Last time I’ve contacted support (was envato studio support staff but is the same I think) they were pretty fast in fixing a little problem I’ve had and I’m very thank full about this. I’ve requested a percentage information when uploading files on envato studio and they delivered very fast even if my tone was, I confess, a bit angry (was not expecting to get a solution :) )

(I detect a bit of sarcasm but is ok

for now ;) )

In many of your examples, you say when the item fee is $100, buyer pays $80 to author, and $20 to envato, why is 20 and 80? How does that get calculated? Based on what?
envato decided it is $80 and 20$
Because it is always 20% and 80% of the price?
not really sure what you are asking but 20% is the fixed buyer fee, is why is always 20% and 80% and why those numbers had been used as examples
Thanks. I couldn’t find anywhere saying the buyer fee is always 20%.

you can see is always 20% on this page http://videohive.net/make_money/become_an_author

(actually is not 20% all the time if we want to be really detailed about this)

in case of a direct purchase is 20% + 1$ or 2$

As long as the percent I get is not changed I don’t care, so why should I read ?

maybe to find out that you will earn less money even if the rate doesn’t change?

is this something that will increase your curiosity?

The best I can recommend Creattive, if it’s very important, tweet @envato_support

was sitting on his item page for months probably so at this points it really doesn’t matter for another five days till support gets to the ticket

Forum search is broken, can’t find that thread, but we’ve had a conversation with Andrew Kramer on this forum about this license issue.

It was about Element3D, and while I don’t agree with the fact that the render of a video using that particular plugin can’t be sold as stock items, he made perfectly clear you can’t do it.

Is why there is a rule for After Effects files that use this plugin to not offer the pre rendered version (similar with his other product Optical Flares)

I’m assuming it was to late to change the rules about Optical Flares and thankfully he understood the problems would had created for authors to update all their items that use that plugin.

For Element3D the rule was clear before the marketplace started accepting the files so no problem there.

In the case of videocopilot stock elements there is a rule that forbids the use of those elements in creating stock items but there is also common sense.

The license under which we sell our items don’t allow for these items to be used to created stock items (with a few notable exceptions)

To restrict the example, stock motion videos can’t be purchased to create other stock items for this marketplace or any other one.

To pretend from him to use his items to create stock items while we don’t allow for our item to be used for the same purpose is not nice. (to say it in civil manner)

I apologize if my thread had created problems to staff and moderators not was my intention.

was just joking around but looks like I’ve got the wrong reaction.
