Yes, I lost some 15 followers too. Strange.

You aren’t wrong, so this is Envato’s fault then. Why are searches for tags running full-text queries? That defeats the purpose of normalized tagging. I might as well just spam my description (which reviewers don’t check with keywords).

When you upload something, below the description field it says “This field is used for search, so please be descriptive!” ... and this has been there for as long as I can remember.

Please please put it back. Do we have to beg?

Maybe we don’t have to beg, but maybe we have to reach a certain number of pages of “+1” before someone cares. But it should be common courtesy to address the comments here… a simple explanation from staff regarding why information that used to be available on the old earnings page is now gone would be fine. Is it going to be added later, is it gone forever, what?

+1

And there goes the author rate indicator… Who wants to go to an extra page to get the author fee, not to mention calculate it via sliders?... It used to be shown automatically and say how much until the next rate… this new earnings page is like a good looking downgrade.

I don’t understand why the new earnings page was implemented without displaying the current commission/author fee. Why do they need to send authors to a page where they have to calculate that value via a slider (!) when it could obviously be calculated and shown automatically like the old earnings page. Guess we’ll never know.

On items with no sales, Grid View shows “0 Sales”... but if you change it to List View it doesn’t show anything (unless it has at least 1 sale). Is this by design?

Surely the graph should cut vertically with current month/day instead of sloping towards 0 value of next month.

This. It’s even stranger looking at consecutive days with equal sales… the green line just waves along. To me the lines would look better straight and finishing on the dot of the current day, with the days ahead showing a neutral gray dot.

Come on someone from staff has to answer this…

It says on the release blog post that the old earnings page will be retired November 3rd. So where are we going to find things like current author rate or how much more till the next rate… this information will simply vanish? I mean it’s hard to believe this was deployed and no one remembered they were removing this information. Same with the yearly sales default view… how did someone figure out it was the best default view for the earnings page?...

I’ve seen items with no sales and no comments trending, which probably means that if an author has lots of followers and has a new item, all the followers simply checking the page will trigger the trending… Same for websites with referral links… if your item starts to get noticed outside envato, then it can also start trending in envato.
