On behalf of other authors (since I won’t get any features until I submit AS3 files) I’d like to question the latest featured file. It’s a year old file which has done very well and is always top 5 of the week since being uploaded, so why feature it on the home page too? Surely that defeats the purpose of weekly features since it’s to promote new files, not old ones – regardless if it’s been updated or not. I’m not calling out the file, I think it’s awesome.. the point I’m making is should we feature files that are several months old that are continuously selling well.. shouldn’t it be reserved for new files that deserve the extra exposure?

The featured file is for great files. This certainly falls into that category. I’m sure when you were featured it was a popular file as well.

The same doubt here, this may cause the Matthew effect. Why not give the exposure to some newer file like the one P&K mentioned in the other thread. :)

It’s ok if you feature a file and then it becomes popular but why feature a file when it’s already popular

I’m tellin ya. That rates increase really added a hit to the profits.

Envato employee #1: Shoot, we increased the rates too much!

Envato emplyee #2: We can always run 6 more bundles per year… :D :D

On topic,

I think the feature selections should be made at the site manager’s discretion.

That file is just crazy in sell`s, i think you have potential for 1000 sells more next year , but even more interesting is to fallow on your page what buyer say/request/ask or just general respond to your file, i cant stop laugh on some of the comments there :P

I can see DS’s point, but that spot is reserved for great files and the MPC file is just that. Sure his file has dominated the charts and sales of AD, but all the more reason to spotlight it. Just because a file has a million sales (thousands) doesn’t mean it shouldn’t be talked about. Some of the files they feature have miserable sales, but they’re still great files just the demand may not be super high.
