I didn’t ever meet a reviewer in person but i doubt they have a range of knobs on their backs, one for each category, which allow quality level to be raised/lowered at will.
The amount of submissions is too damn high, lower quality item (as in both design/coding) and copycats will be approved no matter what.
This wouldn’t this bad if broken themes would be soft disabled and blatant rips removed at light speed but, unfortunately, that’s not the case.
Right now, envato doesn’t seem to have enough human resource to deal with a 2 millions users base, support just takes too much to answer/react and the fact a DMCA must be sent before killing copycats make the situation even worse.
duotive saidIt won’t work with your own details because you’re not a buyer of your own themes so either purchase from a different account or ask a buyer to create a temporary api key for you.
Interesting. One question. If i buy one of my themes to test it out, will it work? Or will it work with our own details?
Keys can now be deleted so it wouldn’t be like giving out envato account details.
RubenBristian saidHe would still need buyer api key to test, that debug line only make sure the update code gets called on each page reload. Only way is to ask a buyer for it or purchase own item from another account.
@PixelBook .. there is a line which you if uncomment, it’ll work as a test. Check the class file and you’ll see the line which needs to be uncommented for debugging.
@duotive fixed link is in post 4
Dream-Theme saidA featured item now gets 1 month of home exposure which is an insane amount compared to 1-2 days of newly approved items. Why not having 1 feat per day instead, with seven spots each item would be granted 1 week
One of our themes was featured. Now it’s off the homepage. Guys, I can assure you that homepage gives you MASSIVE sales increase.
Honestly, i don’t think themeforest can be kept clean anymore by only relying on reviewers / quality bar raises. Not with the increasing amount of items submitted each day.
Reviewers do an amazing job but this cannot prevent a lot of stuff from being approved to only sell little to nothing. Early exposure is crucial and we need better automated ways to manage it.
I really don’t get why any author should be against it. He gets the job, you get the sale, everybody win.
I think the way you should be going about is make a profit splitting partnership offer right off the bat. That way your financial position would be irrelevant. Also, you’d get a lot more designers than you would for your present offer.
I would be inclined to agree that this is the best way to get going with developeing from TF.
By the way, those of you that come down hard on designers, remember the designer has to keep coming up with original stuff every design he/she does, whereas the coder keeps doing the same thing again and again. I’m not saying coding isn’t difficult, but it just isn’t the rocket science some developers try to make it look like.
In my previous post, I wasn’t coming down hard on designers, being more of a designer myself, I was only referring to the fair split up of work/earnings based on my experience of collaboartion here on TF. I would disagree however that designing for TF, one needs to come up with original stuff on a constant basis, this imo is not true. Infact being original on TF is generaly more a recipe for disaster then for success. The vast majority of designs which are selling well here on TF are not original and have very little originality about them. Of course I’m not saying that creating them is easy of requires no skill, it does.
But from a pure “design” only point of view, you can’t compare it with say the task facing a creative director of a design firm who has lots of big clients,. These guys really have to come up with original stuff on a continuous basis. Now that would be a hard job.
you mean including both parent/child in each item with parent being the same ?
