Let's do some Cleaning !



Am I the only one that thinks that there are too many useless items on Envato and that this dangerous for everyone ?

Proposal for Envato : Clean the old and low saling items to make some space!

  • Buyers will find higher quality items faster
  • The global quality of Envato will raise
  • It will be more difficult for new Authors to make an item but it will be a good one
  • Buyers will stop filtering by “Best Sellers” to see only the good ones

Filter example : ITEM SOLD less than 2 times in the last 6 month --> DELETE


I think every author should be responsible his/her items and portfolio. Maybe the item will sell in 6 months better, who knows? And there are other aspects to care about like seasonal products and so on.

If you ask me, I dont want that envato is deleting my items. But I share the perspective to maintain a high quality portfolio.
I have some items that were never been sold, because the niche is too small but maybe one day someone is looking exactly for this item.


But what doesn’t sell now could sell later, as demand can change over time. Say you made a series of animated clips showing a wall being built between Mexico and the US… you could have zero sales for years, but you’d be rolling in it now!


Yes, please delete all your christmas tracks.

Seriously: Less than 2 times is too much, it already would make a tremendous difference if all Authors would consider deleting their tracks with 0 sales which are at least one year old. In fact, I just did that yesterday.


I agree with you guys for the seasonal items and the niche items

Maybe like this : Less than 2 sales in 2 years --> DELETE

And do not dream ! Nobody will delete his item even if he did 0 Sales in 4 years ! Only Envato can do the cleaning job.


I work as a freelancer and sometimes I send my clients on audiojungle to find a music, and everytime they say me that it is very difficult to search because there is too many choice, bad and good of course.
And every time they choose a Best Seller music… thats what I do too with my Videohive items, I have no time to check the 10000 Epic musics.

By doing a massive Cleaning job it would be easier to find quality and new talented authors.

I would be curious to know what Envato thinks about this idea.


You cannot delete any old items just for your new items :wink:
