no :S

well that’s that, no collaborative feature. :)

I thought about this (have nothing better to do ) and I think one big problem is under what rate the file would have been sold. If we take the following scenario: Author A has 70% rate and author B has 50%, then under what rate the file will be sold? If author A and B makes a third account (like now) that account start from the base rate, 50%

If a collaborative system would have been present, no need for a third account, then maybe the rate would have been 60%

In case of more than two authors: A at 70%, B at 50%, C at 50% the rate would have been 56.66%

But, let’s say the system would have let authors to split profit not only in equal parts but like 10% to author A and 90% to author B. But as we said author A is at 70% and author B is at 50%.

So if the item cost 10$ if author B would have sold this by himself would have made 5$ profit each sale. But if author A would have agreed to appear as a co author to the file for 10% of the profit then the file brings them 6$ (60% ) Author A takes 0,60 cents (10% ) and author B takes 5,40$ (90 %) there’s a nice 0,40 cents made by author B just by paying a small fee to a top author. Is a win win situation for both authors.

Now you may say that author A, who is a top author will have not risk his account to do this trick, but if someone would have asked him why he takes 10% from a certain file and what is his part in the creation of the item, the author would have answered that the 10% is a payment for some advice made by him to author B. It is illegal to pay someone to verify your work? Off course not, so it would have been difficult for envato prove that a “scam” took place, a way of taking advantage of his better rate by author A.

Definitely I have no better thing to do, :|

is a useful feature, I see no particular reason to not be implemented in the future, envato have nothing against people collaborating, there are many accounts that clearly are made from more authors and no one baned them

it was not implemented till now probably because of technical difficulties and no development time available. As envato development team is obviously working on changing how this place works (see last changes) when they will have the time to dedicate to this, they will do it.

so there are great chances to be implemented in the future, there is no definitive “NO” answer made anywhere by the staff

:) I’m just being positive

and “future” can be 10 years from now :P

Jami hit the nail on the head. I can’t even count how many support tickets we got before the Tuts+ Marketplace opened up with users who don’t want a subscription but were very interested in buying a single tutorial. I really think it’s been a huge success and from what I’ve seen the numbers from this sale have been great too. :)

making a managerial mistake is human and understandable, after all, in many cases the way envato creates business was and still is, innovative and new, it can’t get everything right each time.

but persevereting is stupid.

If the two option for payment is a success as you said then why not extending it to all the other marketplaces? Who needs to buy a wordpress theme can purchase it like it is now, or he can just pay a fee each month and get all the wordpress he want from all marketplace.

Who contacted you asked for a way to directly buy the tutorials were they were on the tuts network, they did not asked for a tuts marketplace. I think is a big difference. The tuts network publish a tutorial, people either pay a subscription or get access on the fly by paying some amount for that particular tutorial.

A marketplace instead obligates the same buyer to a)pay an additional 2$ fee if he wants to buy a particular tutorial or b) makes a deposit that is higher than the actual month subscription.

It is clear than who stops 2 seconds to think the most obvious solution is to buy the 9$ option. And this off course is not a bad thing for tuts network who can continue to exist and prosper.

for me the tuts marketplace failed miserable when it was allowed to upload tutorials that are available anyway if you pay the 9$ a moth on the tuts plus network.

For 9$ a month you get 98% (? ) of all items from the tuts marketplace.

It is bad marketing, a big mistake and is showing up, the “on sale” promotion will not fix the issue. I looked for half an hour at tutorials on sale and each one I checked was available as article on the tuts network.

I’m not discussing the quality of the items, have nothing to say against that, they are very good, the point is that the marketplace needs exclusive, original, not available anywhere else, tutorials.

799,716

I think envato should give a premium each time one of this landmark number is reached, like for example, if you are the 800000 user and you deposit 100$ you get 100$ free. Something like those online casino bonuses.

A delay should be implemented in showing the number of the users to everyone, when those landmark numbers are reached
