I’m just a little unsure if the collections are getting the right exposure. I have seen them being tweeted about, blogged about on tumblr and up on the GraphicRiver homepage, but even despite all of that, they don’t seem to be getting votes.
There can’t be a collated post with all of the collections where people can view them, rather than scrolling through this forum post?
I don’t know, I can build anything in C#...I do mean anything. However, it seems like Code Canyon in general is kind of dead and since I find programming anything easy, I really find it hard to just come up with something small to sell on Code Canyon as I feel everything I write is just not complicated enough that somebody would want to pay money for it. An app would be a lot of investment only to not have anybody buy it.
Take a look at the items that gets good sales, aren’t they complicated enough? No, they are. My tQuery which is a small 500 or 600 lines script was so complicated to the point I’ll kick it off at some points.The problem is with Open Source, which is a strong competitor. But if we increase quality (no bugs, documentation, great samples, customization); code canyon can be a huge success and developers will pay $7 or $8 to save 30 or 40 hours of work.
No, I see nothing complicated at all there. I lead the architecture design and development of many .NET applications for telecommunications companies from switching to provisioning to billing to real-time fraud management.
The things I see here would be considered minute tasks and barely scheduled.Not that they aren’t useful, because I am sure they are, but it’s hard after building such complicated software to get your head wrapped around the fact a snippet of your code could make you money.
I think you need to take into account the fact that not everyone knows what you know. I see a lot of things on CodeCanyon that are basic stuff for a website (for example) that I myself have absolutely no idea how to code and yet, I show my boyfriend the item and he looks at it and tells me it would be simple for him to code up (he’s a software engineer).
Just because you know how something can be coded up, doesn’t mean that everyone else does. People write fantastic “how to”’s with their files so any Tom, Dick and Harry can purchase the file for a couple of bucks, get it setup and off they go, when realistically they have absolutely no idea how it works.
I think CodeCanyon is great that it is now split off ThemeForest, but it could certainly be expanded to include other things such as C#, C++, etc. Even if it is just snippets of code, SOMEONE will probably find the time you have invested into the work useful and will pay the $$ for it.
I have three collection ideas in progress so far. Hoping to make some graphics for them tonight
What a great way to expose some unloved files, GraphicRiver! Kudos!
Good luck with that
I would think an ad on a job-seeking website would suit better, than this tbh. That would be a full-time job.
.* ahem * Kinda petty of me, but I re-activated it
And I was wondering – since it has been a week since I asked the question – will there be new icons added for the two newest marketplaces?
(apologies if this has been posted already – I’m at work and can’t catch up on the recent posts)I just posted that on the last page. Hilarious hey. A friend of mine stumbled across the site last week, she didn’t get referred to it. An original discovery! I’m curious where you heard about it? This seven degrees of separation may be much less in our case.
http://yvettesbridalformal.com/ – This one is absolutely gag-worthy imo.WARNING : Have a puke-bucket nearby, in arms reach.
Was shared around the office at my work for a laugh. I was transfixed at it’s colours. ewwww
I know I’m digging up an old post, but I was wondering if there was any chance Envato and/or TurboMilk might be adding icons for CodeCanyon and 3DOcean, so that we can use them all and keep our designs (for whatever we use them as) nice and uniform
I know I’d love to have a CodeCanyon one, but I’m sure others would like either/both!!!
Oh and if I can push even further – a wordpress one would rock
