1. Standards evolve with time. maybe the items are old.
2. Post your items so we can judge.
is it possible that envato gets involved for some ratings. here is one I received today
Rating: 1 stars Reason: Other Comment: it wouldn’t let me upload the plug in.
Seriously? The customer didn’t even contact me about the issue. He probably tried to upload the whole package instead of extracting it and uploading just the plugin.
As some have already mentioned, it’s much worse than before. Those who will rate 1 star will do it anyway for whatever reason.
The other day, I had this idea: A CC/TF installer plugin. Any user can download the plugin and connects it to his CC/TF account. He buys some products on the CC/TF site and then from his WordPress admin panel he can install these products. This will solve many problems for authors. Actually, many users don’t know how to properly install a plugin and struggle (or never do) updates.
So instead of each author implementing an auto-update solution, this can solve it for everyone. What do you think?
nah, that’s a very bad idea. so if you file/application/envato is down, your client is down too. and that’s probably going to happen many times.
Did you receive an email from Envato about it? Check your emails.
Good to see that it’s not only me. I’m also having a serious slowdown of sales. Down around 40-50% from the last months.
aren’t the new rules supposed to solve this problem? I agree the marketplace (especially for plugins) is crap, but it makes money, has consistent cash-flow and is growing.
I guess if you want to have a professional offering and a rich clientele you should go solo.
