Template Preview Clarification

Hey Template Producers,

We want to make a clarification related to the labeling of editable media in your sample previews.  While we highly recommend you make it very clear in your preview video which media items are meant to be replaced (we really can't emphasize the importance of this enough)!  We do want to say that there is some flexibility here. 

Uploaders should know that when reviewing, we look at templates from the buyer's perspective. They may not fully understand what a template is yet and so we want to clearly communicate:

A. That this is a template meant to be edited


B. Which items in this template are editable.

As long as your preview video is clear and your description backs it up, there should not be an issue. 

We are making this clarification so that our producers will be able to preserve the artistry of their designs, while still providing the necessary information to buyers.

The old policy of labeling/numbering media INSIDE the project will remain. This is intended to make navigation super easy for less experienced users. 

Regarding text in the preview: Again, we would like to emphasize the importance of using language that communicates, "This is a template." (Examples: YOUR TEXT HERE, YOUR WEBSITE HERE, etc.) Technical features of the design should be left in the project description.

Hope this helps clarify things for you. If you have any questions, let us know in the comments. We would love to hear from any template customers as well! What is important to you in the preview when searching for a template?

Thanks guys,
Amy M.
