You are not alone. We released a new template yesterday and in just a few hours it was no longer on the homepage. Themeforest is a huge marketplace now and this is more than natural. Under these circumstances we believe there should be other things on the homepage rather than the recently released themes. Because it is no longer fair to show those. While exposure time of some themes are only 5-6 hours, some stay 3-4 days.
Homepage could display daily and weekly popular ones from the new releases. Seller bookmark lists could also be shown. Along with these we believe the popular files page should no longer be available. Some might argue with this but we think it prevents the competition in the marketplace. Still there are some few-year-old themes in the list. Surely they sell because of their huge number of sales rather than actually being liked. No doubt a large number of customers are intimidated by searching through lots and lots of themes so they choose to pick themes from the popular list because it is much easier. And of course one of the causes of this is the lack of effectiveness of searching system in Themeforest.
My hand constantly goes for a close button in the marketplaces bar which doesn’t exist cause it is not a bundle message! I have to keep reminding myself . it will take some time to adjust
