Only 3? To make this at least a bit fair I don’t think anyone should be in more then 2 bundles in let’s say a period of 5 years. Bundles should be something that cover the biggest number of different authors as possible.

It will always be unfair competition against regular items , no matter who’s in. Barely acceptable once per year, let alone monthly (for now).

Agree that monthly is way too often. Because if it’s monthly, it means that 25% of the year Envato is running a bundle. Jonathan does a good job of explaning why frequent bundles are bad for business here:

Envato only care for money, that’s blatantly obvious. I bet this thread will get like 100 replies and then somebody will actually bother replying from the staff. That’s usually the way it works around here.

Each author should only ever be allowed in one bundle and bundles should only happen up to twice a year (one for birthday and another for one other special occasion).

This, and also a year imo shouldn’t contain more than three bundles, one every 4 months or so.

Quit bitching. Envato owe you nothing. The cheek to be telling them what to do. :ohrly:

That is definitely not the way to look at it, without authors envanto wouldn’t have a marketplace.

Hey guys. I will see if I can get Carmen to provide some details. If I am correct, it’s nothing to get worked up about :)
