Hello to you all. I come here with a doubt (more than a complain actually)
It has been 5 months since my last approved project on Videohive. Since then I have made 5 more projects, all of them rejected. I am at envato since 2011.
After my second rejection I made a complain to envato asking for more info but never received an answer. My third project was then soft rejected were they asked for some changes, I spent a week making those changes and then it got Hard Rejected. I then opened a forum thread to complain about it feeling I wasn’t treated fairly and My Post was deleted by the envato team.
I then uploaded another project a month latter that got rejected. Some weeks ago I uploaded a Christmas Project and once again I got a Hard Rejection stating “Unfortunately this item does not meet our quality requirements and cannot be accepted at this time.”. They also said they are receiving a lot of Christmas Project and mine wasn’t has good as the others.
Then I ask a friend of mine (A best Seller at envato) to upload my project on his name as if it was his project, changing only the title of it… and… the project was accepted
The Question is: How can the same project be rejected to me and accepted by a best seller? I just can’t understand this way of dealing with us authors and I ask myself if I am being treat fairly compare to better sellers. I feel shattered by this. I was talking about all this to a lawyer friend of mine today (just talking to a friend) and he actually said that, with all this proofs and If I even added, for example, my sexual orientation to it, I could sue envato for discrimination. But this is something I won’t do because first I don’t want to waste my time with it and also I still believe envato team is fair to all his authors.
I was just trying to understand why something like this would ever happen.
Again I tried to contact envato about this situation but never received any reply. And that’s why I am writing it down here. And probably will get a blocked Threat again.
