Hi,

I’ve read previous super long thread fairly full and this thread partly, maybe my issues are already mentioned

In my portfolio there are some lower priced items where I get between $3,95 and $4,95

that’s okay, and I’m supporting these items though, but sometimes I think “please take your money and don’t ask again” ;) – but solved any issues, even if it costs some time

codecanyon’s PHP items are depending on so many things and every server and case of usage is different and if these really low priced items have to be supported by rule … I think this isn’t worth and that fair

Outside the marketplace customers will get just three minutes for those $4,95 from me (while I’m charging with every beginning 30 minutes)

don’t get me wrong, I’m happy to spend time in my items, but in my case (for example) the invested time won’t be compensated when I’m comparing to my usual hourly rates – but that’s okay

and I’m happy to improve, extend and bug fixing my items too – and if there’re questions I’m happy to answer
when support is part of the price and prominent announced I think there’re would be much mor questions ..

so if the support ist mandatory for 6 month AND with the same item price I’m not that amused

that’s my 2 cents
thx for reading my confusedness :)

Hey guys, as an icon designer I’m also frustrated, but I can understand that envato wants to keep it going with today’s design trends, the old ones was good but they been really outdated they spent a lot of time on this big new badges(i think), and they do look good in big size, and there is no way they will going to redo them just because this thread was created.

But anyway I’m surprised how designers have not thought of redrawing all badges into smaller-more simple version, they just took the big badges and shrink them into 32×32 pixel and kept all the unnecessary details, a quickie.

In this situation is only 1 way is possible to do, without redrawing big badges and keep the way as it is, first is to shrink it into smaller size like 24×24 and they can be 3 per row under user, keep the paws with color range as it was before, and redraw all badges(for small version) into flat and much more simple style, who needs little glow-stars and unnecessary lines on little badge, it looks like visual garbage.

I had around free 40 min and i made some experiment, this is not the same as it was before but might be still better then it is now, what you think about it? > http://cl.ly/image/1L2Q3p3N0o1B —-
Hi @Lazy, great to see your feedback. The one size SVG that fits all was really tricky to work with.
I don’t think that there’s a great need to create the SVGs fitting all sizes, because mainly they are used with the dimensions 32×32 (except the badges page itself, but that shouldn’t be a problem)

I think as Envato learned to successfully ignore some threads which kind of hurts my feelings :P they should learn to accept some criticism along with that, to actually do something on it.

I think they will go with “announce with lock thread” path for now:

thought the same 1 minute ago too :)

How is that supposed to help you build a better product? It’s irrelevant to the item itself..

it’s an old thread, but:

maybe they didn’t read it (the extra comment from the buyer) :/

they are really too big :shocked: (no difference between avatar and badges ;) ) – the old ones were nice and not that intrusive

By the way, what was the split initially when Envato started back in the day? I can’t remember now.
when I started in July 2009 it was 40 – 60 (author – envato) as an exclusive author
I think it was even worse for me. 30 : 70 (author – envato) at the end of 2008. We have come a long way ;)

and now you switched to 70:30 :)
