Simply because the designers put “their heart, soul and intentions” into the badges, it shouldn’t mean those badges can’t be questioned. It seems that as long as someone in the envato team is proud of these badges, then all is good, community comes second and will learn to love them with time, even though the community has spoken with 50 pages of highly negative replies.

Seems like you don’t want the community that much involved in the community badges :|. At the very least, for those future tweaks with our feedback in mind, first assemble a small group of design variations of a badge and then ask YOUR community to vote on which one they prefer.

Thanks for the feedback. We’re looking into this and will come back to you asap.

Good to know :) BTW, you probably noticed the mistake but I actually meant that the “number or clips” information shows up when viewing that item in “List View”, not “Grid View” ... It’s the 5th item on my portfolio if that’s any help.

What an anti-climatic conclusion to this story. Why even call them community badges if the opinion of said community is absolutely ignored…?

Hm? They were “quite surprised”?...

I might be wrong but this seems quite obvious at least in the audiojungle/videohive relation… some audiojungle authors are looking to have some partnership with videohive authors, or at least make them aware of their audio tracks, in the hope that eventually, those videohive authors use those tracks in their preview videos, which in turn gives the audiojungle author some exposure.

Because mass commenting a videohive author’s items or sending unsolicited profile messages is frowned upon, simply following someone is a quick way that makes sure that the videohive author will notice a new avatar on the Followers section, which might earn some interest. Do that for every author on videohive and you’ve reached 2000.

That said, this doesn’t bother me a bit and I actually go hear one or two items from any new audiojungle follower.

@andrewfreeman

It’s been 12 days so maybe something’s up. The Upload page indeed shows that new field.

However, for existing items, it’s not showing up anywhere in the Edit page.

Furthermore, a while ago before this announcement was made, this feature was tested/half-implemented and I edited an existing item to correctly show “Number of Clips: 10”. That information still shows up when viewing that item on my portfolio in Grid View, yet it doesn’t appear on the item’s actual page on the attributes section. And it also doesn’t appear anywhere when I open the Edit page for it, so there is no way to change it if I needed to.

So, lot’s of strange things going on…

More importantly, this thread is about to hit 5,000 posts.
What happens then? :-0
We’ll receive new badges.

Ha!

I think after #5000, this thread should simply auto-reply the same posts from 3 years ago, in the same order, with the same time intervals, thus completing its circle of life.

Just reminding everyone that if we want to be heard regarding the new badges, it’s also a good idea to fill that short survey at: http://themeforest.net/community/badges

On videohive updating either the thumbnail or the preview image happens immediately after you press “Submit files for review”, so you don’t actually need to wait for review/approval. I’m sure it works the same on audiojungle for the thumbnail.

Hey, I care too, but like doru said we can’t do nothing… and the fact that we’re talking about this publicly yet no one from staff removed those stock footage videos from the motion graphics category should tell you how much it bothers them… It took me all but 10 seconds to find two stock videos on the first two pages of the the new motion graphics items, let’s see how long they stay there…

Aaaand the 100% commission is gone… I was kind of hoping that for the rest of the week it would be 70% for everyone (like last year)... looking at my current rate I guess not… this birthday’s one-day 100% commission ended up mainly benefiting elites.
