This I think would be the most logical and easiest to implement solution, while still keeping things fair for everyone. Simply split up the 4 rows for recent items and sort them by price. Highest priced items on top and lower priced items at the bottom. Lower priced items are uploaded more frequently so these rows will move faster. So in theory each row will get the right amount of exposure based on it’s price.
great, maybe the prices are not well balanced but is a good idea. Also if a 3$ item is uploaded only the line with that price tag will be updated, and that is what we want
Where are the $15-20 and $30-35 items? Or there isn’t any? Maybe I didn’t know that.
The top row will never get clicked until people figure out what it consists of. Instead this will drive traffic to cheaper files.
make the top row thums 160×160 and I’m all for it
I think it’s better to sort them by category.
Interesting idea, but like CrackerJack says, the price range will drive buyers to cheaper files.
Why cant each row be a single category (which would mean of course more than 4 rows would be needed, dont know if this is a limitation) ?
This way top row holds templates, row below that whatever comes next in the ‘Categories’ button list.
Good idea from authors point of view but buyers don’t need such segration at all! In fact it will raise the question whether the pages are really designed to help buyers to find right files or to convince author’s to have more initial exposure!
However the same 4 rows segregated by categories can be more efficient from everyones perspective:
Row1: Site Templates
Row2: Image Viewers & Galleries (or something most preferred / popular)
Row3: Other Flash categories
Row4: Flex & Unity
