Just curious. I have 2 items: Layered Popups and Layered Popups for WordPress (although I put these links to make the question more clear, it can be considered as self-promotion; if so, mods, please remove the links). Both of them do the same, but first one is a standalone script, second one – WordPress plugin. WordPress plugin is more popular. It has more sales and every week it is in the middle of “Weekly Top Sellers” list. Moreover, according to Google Analytics, WordPress plugin has more then twice pageviews (comparing to standalone script) for last week. However, “Trending” badge is on standalone script, but not on WordPress plugin. I also played with periods in Google Analytics and didn’t notice any growth of pageviews for both items (user interests is stable).

Just curious, how “trending” is calculated? :-)

Will a Username change affect my sales?

... users try to describe issue by words and don’t provide URL where I can see the problem. One copy-pasted URL will say me more then long description.

I think that you can’t submit such theme any more, and all themes should pass Theme Checker. I really hope that theme reviewers are actually testing things like this.
I didn’t mean themes from ThemeForest. We are talking about CodeCanyon plugins and I meant themes that users may use on their websites (free themes; themes created by beginners who are not strong with WP; etc.)

If you purchase WP plugins, make sure that you theme is WordPress-compatible. Some poor-developed themes are absolutely incompatible with WP. For example, they have hardcoded old version of jQuery, or don’t have wp_head() and wp_footer() functions calls which are mandatory for all themes. Without this function calls 95% of plugin won’t work.

Cool. Now having Featured Item is more profitable. It will stay on hompage almost 2.5 months. Hope one day I’ll have featured item (I already have one candidate ;-))

I will reach the second Elite level in a couple of days. Will I already get the new Envato Studio credit?
Sorry but not yet! The new rewards take effect on Sept 1.
Ha-ha. That’s funny. :-) According to my calculation/prognosis, I’ll reach second Elite level several days before Sept 1. Hope it will happen not at Aug 31. It would be offensively. :-)

If I reach 25M level, I’ll definitely choose Option #1.
