Thank you to everyone who submitted an application, we are so thankful to have such a helpful and involved community. Unfortunately we can’t have 60 moderators, but those chosen were judged on their past involvement, as well as their forum conduct around the time of the application. If you applied and were unsuccessful, just remember that we are sure to be looking for mods in the future and your forum conduct shows us who are the best candidates. On that note, please welcome our new community moderators!
Welcome Joost, Enabled and QuickandEasy to the moderator team! These three have consistently demonstrated positive and a helpful attitudes on the forums and we look forward to them being a great new addition to our moderator team.
Congratulations to our new community moderators!

As you may be aware, we are launching the Indie Game Dev Bundle on Monday the 5th of December at midday AEDT time. We’re super excited for our latest Bundle and as always, we want you to be able to earn some extra cash by referring your friends or website visitors to the sale.
The referral program allows you to earn 30% of the first deposit or purchase of any new member to the site (a new member is classified as someone without an account who has never visited any of the Marketplaces before which is tracked via cookies). It’s simple to use, all you need to do is link to any page on the Marketplaces (such as the landing page of the Indie Game Dev Bundle) and append this to the end of the URL:
Where ‘username’ is replaced by your username. So my referral link would look like this:
This is a great opportunity to earn some money. For your convenience, we’ve made some referral banners which you can use to promote the Bundle on your blog or site. Just remember to take them down by Monday the 12th of December at 12pm AEDT, as the Bundle will no longer be available.
You can also use your referral link to promote the Bundle on social media. If you’re involved with game dev, 3D, audio, Flash or Unity niches then we’d love your help promoting the Bundle.

“Way back” in August 2009, around the time Envato turned 3, Collis and Cyan were interviewed about the company – where it came from and where it was heading. In some ways that seems a long time ago – Envato is another two and half years older now. It’s great to look back and see how far we’ve come.
The interview will take less than four minutes of your time. So sit back and enjoy!

If you’re serious about your work, I’m sure you have a well-thought-out backup system that you run as if your income depends on it. An external hard drive, offsite backup, online backup, whatever. For a freelancer, it’s the ultimate insurance plan.
But have you ever thought about backup up your website? It cost you a lot of time or money – maybe both. And it’s also something that your business depends on.
And just in time for that spare time you might have over Christmas, Webdesigntuts+ have created the ultimate guide to backing up your website. The article covers manual backups, cPanel backups, backing up to the cloud, rsync backup, and automated solutions. There’s bound to be a solution that suits you.
Still not convinced? Author Andrew Gladwin gives five good reasons why website backups are important:
So head over to Webdesigntuts+ today, choose a backup strategy or two, and get to work!

We recently crossed a 15,000 member milestone at Envato’s Tuts+ Premium, our online education membership for creatives. Today, we’re very pleased to reveal a massive change for the better for Tuts+ Premium, including a gorgeous redesign, 27 top-selling eBooks worth more than $440, member forums, and a collection of full video courses. You can explore the new Tuts+ Premium or read on to find out what the membership has to offer you.
Library of Courses
Would you like to learn how to design your first website in 30 days? Or learn the language of the web, HTML & CSS? Or get a little more advanced, and start using CSS3? Or maybe use Photoshop to create concept art? Our new Tuts+ Premium courses will show you how. We’ll be adding new courses several times per month.
A wonderful new interface
Top-selling Educational eBooks
Tuts+ Premium memberships now include 27 top-selling eBooks worth more than $440, including:
724 High-end Tutorials
Our tutorials teach you one technique comprehensively and in great detail. When you complete a tutorial, we want to make sure that whatever you’re learning, you really get it. Every Tuts+ Premium tutorial goes above and beyond the quality and depth you can expect to find anywhere else. Our library includes both video and written tutorials with screenshots, so you can learn exactly how you like to learn.
After months of work, we are so excited to share the new Tuts+ Premium with the Envato community. Envato’s mission has always been to help people earn and learn online, and with Tuts+ Premium, we really feel we have the ‘learn’ part of our mission covered!

We want to hear from you. Each week we give you a chance to share your thoughts, opinions and ideas. Have your say!
Is Gary asleep at his desk because of too much work, or too little? In December, it could be either!
In Australia we’re already half way through the first day of December. The year is winding down, and for many of us, so is our workload. But that’s not the case for everyone. For some people, December is the busiest month of the year.
What is your workload like this month? Easing down or ramping up?
