So… Envato is dead now?
First of all, I would like to say that I do not accuse or affirm. I just want to understand the problem and share my observations. I would really like to see a moderation response.
My name is Mark. I have been working as a designer for 5 years. I’m not trying to prove my high level of skills. I want to say that my work was acceptable for buyers and received good reviews.
After 10 consecutive hard-rejections in several different sections, I had some questions and I communicated on this forum. I carefully checked all the requirements described in
File Preparation Guide (https://help.market.envato.com/hc/en-us/articles/202821740-General-File-Preparation-Guidelines)
I am fully confident that all my work was in compliance with the rules described in these guides.
So the problem is in the design?
I created topics, asking to rate and suggest what I’m doing wrong. Waiting for an answer, I read similar topics of other people. I noticed that in cases where the design was frankly bad, there were 6-12 answers where each expressed his opinion on the problems of this work. In some of the cases I even saw moderation responses.
But in cases where the design was objectively at a good level and there were no obvious mistakes that would distinguish this work from those already in the store, there were either no answers at all or they were 1-2 absolutely subjective opinions on the choice of color and small minor details, with which it was quite possible to argue.
This is not just my problem. It is a problem of many…
The main problem is that in any case, you will get hard-rejection. Without any explanation.
You are left with a complete lack of understanding what exactly you did wrong. On forum, it is impossible to find advice, because people themselves do not know for sure what was done wrong. So you got rejected, over and over again.You spend a lot of time and energy, but you will be left with nothing. While in the store you can find 5+ works in a row from the same author. That’s just this account does not belong to one person, but a large design office. How will Envato explain this? Really in the category of logos sent so few works, that one author is able to put a few of his in a row?
To make my words more truthful
I could add proofs. Links to topics and comparisons of rejected works with those that are now in the store.
But I do not know the rules of the forum about using the work of others, even on the forum.
I would really like to read the explanations for the moderation, for what reasons one of them was not approved, and the other went on sale. If I have the opportunity to lay out the proofs.
I want to repeat
I do not accuse or affirm
But it seems to me that Envato is dying. It seems to me that there are too many authors. Too many works and too few buyers. Envato has to screen out a lot of good authors, only so that others could earn something.
If you are new to Envato and are reading this now, there is a chance that this place will not give you the opportunity to move on.
I will wait for an answer, can I give some illustrative examples and ask why one logo was rejected, and the other was accepted
