music should start slowly rising. Music rise should be very good. and music to tell a post-war peace. orchestral

Hi, you may have a listen to my pack here:

http://audiojungle.net/item/epic-trailer-pack-xxl/4941211

Every track in this package (of course all available as single items, too) start slowly and rise nicely. All orchestral, epic cinematic ;)

Thanks Marco

I’ve been selling hardly anything for about 3 months now – with permanently falling tendency. Although I’m doing the same promotion for my stuff on twitter etc. as usual. Very frustrating, actually. Hope sales numbers will rise again next month or so…

The question is, why do you even check themes on IE8?

It’s your duty to tell your client, with IE8 support, comes great performance drawbacks and compatibility issues.

IE8: less than %7: http://gs.statcounter.com/#browser_version_partially_combined-ww-monthly-201212-201312

You are absolutely right. But that’s a completely different story. My point is: about 80-90% of the themes (I mainly checked HTML templates) offered here that are marked here as being IE8 compliant are not. The info in the description they are compatible when they are actually not is misleading, extremely annoying for customer and simply wrong. Being a customer myself in this marketplace, too, I have made the experience during the last few days that I actually wasted at least two whole evenings checking themes if they are really IE8 compatible.

I’m graphicsriver and audiojungle author, too. It’s the same as if I wrote that a graphics file I’m offering there is compatible with Photoshop CS3 although it’s actually not and only fine with CS6 or if I give in the description of an audio file that it’s seamlessly looping although it’s not.

So please understand my problem in the role of a themeforest customer here.

thanks Marco

phpStorm here – even when coding only HTML/CSS stuff. Brilliant IDE.

Dear themeforest authors,

I have spent the last three days checking at least a hundred themes for a customer and I was shocked how many themes having IE8 compliance in their description actually looked like total crap on IE8 – I had cases that even completely crashed IE8.

May I kindly ask you to check your themes again and rethink if your theme really is IE8 compliant?! It was such an annoying procedure for me to walk through all those themes that were supposed to work on IE8 but actually didn’t.

Being a web developer myself I know that IE8 is a complete nightmare but now as IE8 compliance isn’t compulsory any more on themeforest – please do check your themes and adjust your descriptions.

thanks a lot in advance

Marco

Wow! Didn’t know about that search engine! Awesome! Just made a test with one of my tracks and already found two videohive project that use my track without me being aware of :)

thanks a lot! Marco

Yes, it’s a great thing! My track “Something Big is Coming” was part of one of the last year’s bundle (Cinematic Bundle or something…) and the money coming in from the bundle sales was awesome :) I also had a lot of additional sales during the running time of that bundle and in the following 2 or 3 months. After that my sales got back to their usual numbers.

But being chosen for a bundle is like winning the lottery in terms of probability/likelihood I guess…

Not a single item sold this “whole year” (it’s the 4th ;) ) – I already actually thought the sales system on audiojungle has an issue or something :) Glad, I’m not alone…
