Thanks for the stats, very interesting. Our sales are dismal this month, so it’s good to at least commiserate with others here – makes me feel better :)

I am absolutely thrilled about these changes. This is most assuredly going to result in less support requests for me (and potentially more money for premium packages). I spend on average 2.5 hours a day on support (7 days a week) and at least a third of that is customers who purchase the theme more than 6 months ago (maybe even half). So right there, less support = more time for me to develop = more money. I already provide outstanding support every single day, so nothing will change for me on that end. Oh, and I absolutely LOVE the idea of being able to tell my customers I’m on vacation. I haven’t taken a vacation without bringing my laptop in over 4 years, for fear of 1-star ratings from customers who have to wait 3+ days for a support response (my average support response time is less than 24 hours). Going to Disney with my two small kids in November… it would be awesome to not have to bring my laptop… just sayin’ :)
One question is this your main source of income or a side job?

This is my main source of income. It’s my full time job.

Envato runs the marketplace, let them do what they do best.
OH, MY GOD! You are so funny! :D Did you see the latest updates?
I don’t spit in the plate I eat. Not funny at all :(

Seriously. And anyway, obviously that’s what Envato does best. Just look at the marketplace market. Numbers don’t lie.

We’ve got a nice big pile of authors, so I’ll disable the form for now. Thanks everyone for your interest, we’ll be in touch with some of you soon.

Dangit I just missed it! I know you said you don’t know yet, but is there any chance this will be rolled out before November? Would be awesome if I didn’t have to take my laptop to Disney World…

I believe this just started occurring today, but I could be mistaken…

On my portfolio page when I change the sorting the Date Published option remains selected (even though the item order does indeed change) and the ASC/DESC selector always stays the same.

Also, a little more concerning… the Date Published order is completely incorrect for my items. Anyone else noticing this on their portfolio pages?

The first thing that strikes me is the typography, it needs some work. Also, maybe it’s too similar to other themes that already exist? I’m not sure because I don’t really have my finger on the pulse of the one page parallax style theme niche, but it seems like I’ve seen similar to this before. Also word of warning, they might make you take down the link to your theme demo, I can’t remember if that’s against forum rules or not. Keep trying though, the functionality of it is pretty slick!

I know right!? I tried to create an account at this marketplace but it said my username was already taken. Ugh that sucks, especially because it’s like now I can’t ever create that account on that site because it’s been defiled. I guess if anything let this be a word of warning to my fellow theme authors: go to all of the other legit marketplaces and grab up your username as soon as you can so this doesn’t happen to you.

(not saying to upload your themes there :) just saying to grab your username so other people don’t use them to pirate your company).

There is a certain competing marketplace which I shall not name here (it is a market full of creative people…) where my ENTIRE company has been pirated. Someone created an account using my company name, logo, marketing, and ALL my themes and is selling them and then passing its customers to me for support. Obviously my themes (and everyone else’s) are being pirated all of the Internet, so it’s not that I’m so concerned about that. What bothers me is that what if ThemeForest sees that? Will they check with me first to verify if this is really me? Or will they just automatically assume I’m breaking my exclusive license terms and selling my themes at other sites? That would of course result in an immediate suspension of my account and would be disastrous.

Has this happened to you? If so, what did you do about it? Should I officially inform ThemeForest just so they have on record that I’m not selling my themes other places?

P.S. Yes I’ve contacted this other marketplace already and told them to delete the shop and all themes associated with it.

No. I opened a thread about it some time ago and the official answer (someone asked the support/reviewers) was that it is not longer required.

Awesome, do you have the link so I can see staff actually saying that? Thanks!
