Really not good times for SFX makers here. Now it has no sense to upload. I keep it on minimal level. I’ve noticed that new uploads are viewed and bought by following me old clients for the rest of the world they are buried under flooding commercial libraries stuff. The only hope is that this invasion brings more clients to AJ having now wider choice

Congrats, great achievement with so small portfolio. I’ve just passed 20,000!

Great – you can load it on a truck platform and move to another place :)

The problem is not in volume of accepted sounds, the problem is that some new commercial contributors use facilities unavailable for us and have accepted sounds that we old contributors cannot submit. When I came at AJ I have submit few thousands sounds manually one by one… they do it in other way (even if this would be available for me now, I’ve done my job and I haven’t got tons of SFX on my disk waiting to upload).

I’m curious what would happen if AJ ingest several thousand music items from other commercial library – without queues, near immediately with near no review. What would you say? Anyway it could happen.

3 sales ih 12 hours on the same item..Whats wrong? I had no single sale for 5 days and now i got them 3 in 12 hours on the same item..LOL
Nothing’s wrong! That’s called “success” in my book! ;)
I was having success here until it was like a switch was flicked and it went away. It certainly doesn’t tally that the more work you upload the greater sales. It seems some seem to be more visible than others by reading the posts here. Sorry if I sound a tad cynical but it’s not very encouraging, especially when AJ was one of my main income streams and now it falls well behind.
Marb, are you blind or don’t you want to see what is happening? Do you see rapidly increasing number of SFX in last months… thousands and thousands…? How much SFX do you submit to compete with that? Just do simple math and answer is quick and obvious.
Sorry, I now see what you mean. I am finding many of the multiple newly added sounds by single contributors to be very very similar as well as well covered themes that I have been turned away with for that reason. How have all these multiples of a similar sounds got through ?

AJ want to be a strong player on SFX market and ingest existing commercial libraries. Of course it’s against rules that limits us – individual contributors entering our noises one by one every day. Probably soon we also will be allowed to upload files from ‘files we dont want’ list and maybe uploading system will be more pleasant and easier for us. But I think that so called commercial users take advantage from using it now and just sinking us. It’s impossible to enter few thousands items in one week in the way that we must to do it from years. This uploading system has been protecting us from such flooding, but now someone isn’t playing fair.

I had batch approval of 70 items. But frankly what does it change?... It looks like I will have batch approvals once a week, so as someone said I will have an exposure in one day per week. I thought that it will be batch uploading feature no batch approval. The problem is in manual entering of all the data and making previews. I made it over 6400 times… Is it so hard to invent mass uploads in csv files and optional autowatermarking?

As Martin said about 1% sales gives ratings and mostly by the same people (in many cases also contributors). It means that ratings are nearly useless on AJ.
