Why this topic keeps coming up, is because exposure of new items is dependent on the competency of humans… an automated system with complex filtering options would be a fail safe system, and will always auto correct itself regardless of what reviewers approve, and then we won’t have any threads like this anymore – that’s for sure.
Excellent analysis. TF need to come up with some sort of mechanism based on the ‘decay’ factor of the themes. They should devise a complex formula comprising of ( number of sales / how many days old / author’s reputation / theme’s ratings / author’s ratings) to list the items on the homepage. This is what Facebook does. A recently published new post with 0 likes is pushed below a post with 10 likes posted few hours ago.
Thanks Envato. Managed to get 4 sales under 70% commission. That’s equivalent to selling 2 more items.
Very cool. Traveling around the world is my dream too.. You are more than welcome in India. If you are going to start your journey from Thailand, it’s best to start India from South to the way up. Some really great temples down south, white desert (Kutch, Gujarat) and metropolis Mumbai, Gateway of India in the the west , beautiful hills side and wildlife national parks in the east (don’t miss Cherrapunji here, the wettest place in the world), and some great religious culture (Varanasi, Mathura, etc) and monuments in north (Taj Mahal, Qutub Minar, etc). Would love to grab a coffee when you are around Mumbai.
Have a great trip!!
I started when I was 10. Now I am 25. Has a lot to learn.
... What you point out (about generic options) is quite important, but also an unique theme could affect sales as it will be hard to “customize” so it won’t look a template, which is what many users here are looking for. Consider that many of the users here are not direct customers of that template, but they are reselling the web to third clients…
+1 for that. Perfectly said.
Thanks jegtheme for your input. I think I am slowly figuring out this marketplace. There is respect for uniqueness all over but authors must draw a line so that their product does not narrow down to meet the requirements of only a specific group of people. Uniqueness sometimes isolates. I think, authors should first make a product that has all the features a layman would ask from it and then add their creative spice to make it different. If some basic generic options are missing, your product, however creative, would fail to convert to sales.
I am in favor. The header does mess up with the tiny functionalities which can cost you a customer.
