Looks good, doesn’t work. we won’t have “80” pages anymore but 6 millions and the users will watch the first 3 as they already do. The only items visible will be the most popular even more that way.
It’s becoming less worth day by day to publish here on the Envato markets with the amount of stuff you let through, the search tool being inferior since 2010, and the fantastic envato elements where you didn’t even invite all the good authors.
Just the best of the best gets visibility, the rest ends up in a pot with the old stuff.
Have you ever actually tried to “search” for something in the market? like for real that you need it? I don’t think so.
What will happen if you don’t clean, is what happens to every existing social network/ community up to now: it is gonna get too cluttered of old stuff and DIE like myspace, like Twitter ecc. and people will just go to new ones which are cleaner and newer when you can start all over and get new fresh stuff like Instagram. Then Instagram will die and a new fresh one will be created.
It will happen to Graphicriver as well one day, but if the place stays a bit more fresh maybe it won’t. We’re starting to rot specially in graphicriver where only actions, corporate and print sell.
Can you imagine the illustrations section with those thumbs? what’s the point of uploading in that category, you’re going to be at page number 236278 in 2 hours.
