Just a drop down under the “Forum” nav so that you can jump between the marketplace forums easier… right now it’s 2 clicks if I want to go from TF forums to CC forums… :)

That is all…

+1 – Good question…

Although… if they want to partner with WooThemes… Envato just needs to hide their little “checkmark” badge and the rest of us minions would never know… ;)

If one wants to purchase a Wordpress plugin from here and use it on Wordpress MU sites… do they need to purchase the Extended License or just the Standard?

On TF it’s the Extended… just wanted to make sure it’s the same here as well…

Screenshot... looks like this on Firefox, Chrome and Safari that I checked…

As for your design…

Usually I (and I’m sure others) see these rejected threads and can agree with the reviewer… but I think they got it wrong here… it looks clean, there’s lots of options.. everything seems to work… I don’t see why it wouldn’t sell…

I guess my standards are low… :D

The twitter feed in the bottom is currently overlapping… but other than that, looks pretty nice to me..

Are you sure the problems not more something with the code/documentation?

Have you asked the reviewer to be more specific?

Yeah, just found that one. While appzapper isn’t free, AppCleaner is ;-)

Free themes are free too but you get what you pay for… or don’t pay for in this case :)

If you want to shell out a little cash, CleanMyMac is only $30… easily deletes applications and other files too… been using it for awhile and it’s well worth the $30.

You should really buy a Mac :)
why? so he can struggle with the controls for the next 2-3 months and learn to use Apple’s GUI and structure instead of working on his themes :S Win7 >> Mac “any OS version”

I promise you, anybody who takes 2-3 months to figure out how to use a Mac, their themes won’t be any good… nor will their grill cheeses.

Is their a learning curve?... yes, but once you learn it… you’ll love it and work faster because of it.

Again… Pricing structure is poor.

I have to disagree with this. I don’t think the issue is the pricing structure as much as it is that unique themes tend not to receive as much traffic and in turn receive fewer sales.

However, highly unique themes would sell better if they were placed in front of more eyeballs on purpose. I’m not sure how this could be accomplished but if unique themes were given placement preference then they’d sell a lot more and more authors would work at creating themes that are more creative and unique.

I disagree with your disagreement… :)

All themes go through the same “eyeballs” process as far as I know… they’re approved, they sit on the homepage for awhile and then they’re dumped with the rest of them…

Mark does a pretty job of trying to use the Weekly Featured to point out unique ones and for the most part, besides the Photo type themes… they’re not flying off the shelves…

Unique themes require unique buyers with unique circumstances… and people looking for unique themes aren’t worried that it might cost them $70… in the real world it might cost them hundreds or thousands… $70 is nothing to them…

If you want Authors to flood this marketplace with unique themes… you’ve got to give them a reason to do so… If they know they can make the same amount with half the sales of the more common type themes… then I’m sure they’ll take that chance…

The current model of pricing everything in the $35 range certainly isn’t working to add variety…

Pricing structure is poor…

Unique items tend to sell less because they’re geared towards certain niches, markets, etc… or just have a certain look… not business/corporate.

Yet they’re are priced the same as the more common/can be used for anything styled themes…

If Authors want to make money and everything is priced the same… then they’re going to choose the style that sells the best… plain and simple…

In order to get Authors to make unique items, those items need to have the same potential to make as much money as the more common styled themes. If the unique items sell less, the only way to guarantee they’ll make near the same is to increase their price.

Example:

I as an Author have the choice to make a common/can be used for anything styled theme or let’s say a sports theme… and I want to make $5k from it…

at a $35 selling price where I’ll receive an average at 60% of that ($21)... to get to $5k… I need to sell around 238 of them… pretty reasonable around here for the common styled themes… yet to sell 238 themes that are unique to sports, or music, or video games, or dating, or babies, etc… or have something other than a corporate/business type style…

Well it’s pretty hard to get to that 238 total over a decent amount of time… double the price of the unique themes… they only have to get to half of what the others sell… which means you might see more Authors doing them…

Most Authors are here to make money… learn & grow too, yes… but we all want to make money… and we’re not going to waste time putting the hours (usually extra) to make unique themes and make less money…

Again… Pricing structure is poor.
