Just checked a stat, now again this could be summer, but last wordpress theme we got approved on the first day on 29 may got 3500+ visits this time new item got only 2500+ and when i check reall time visitors while the item is still on the front page the second day it dropped drastically in comparison to last time. Maybe as i sad it is just a coincident i just wanted to share with you the stat’s on first day of the new item
Same here, we released a new theme this morning only 2 sales dont know why, we never had such bad results, maybe its just summer, but still its to early to say
That’s just amazing! Thank you for sharing!

Some times you just have to give them what they want, i would remove or totally redesign the opening times since it is almost the same and redo footer, restyle it totally.
I ask if its soft reject because on notion of uniqueness its almost always a hard reject, of course if you have it in your hidden items then it is indeed a soft reject and one more reason why i ask because if its a hard reject then you will need quite a massive redesign to get it trough
In my book they already did that, i know quite a few authors that are now trying alternatives, to be honest we built a team as a company in small offices and we are struggling, of course a 1000$ is not the same to all country’s. Envato has to know that this business is not mobile app business you cannot earn billions from one or few themes and risk everything to achieve that. And leaving us authors to now days handle more and more things for our own exposures is just not profitable especially when clients are demanding more and more.
As somebody (cant remember who) sad on forums that when a big company registers 3 bad quarters in a row then they wake up but by then its all over.
Clients just don’t care how much money we as authors earn they demand support and god knows how many things they want in there head, i think that at least 20% of clients think that we are envato lol
And to be honest when an author as digitalscience which i see you have 7 years badge has such concerns and negative energy from all this and envato does very little then we shouldn’t expect much from them anyway.
If i compare my posts from when i began its funny how everything gets darker and darker in my words
Hi to all
let me add our 50c, in this short time we noticed increase of sales on our items trough all items, that is a good thing for now, but it is much to early to make a meaningful estimate in statistics. We are STILL waiting for our new theme to get approved, after that we will track visits+sales on it because this layout is it seems growing concerns new items are to far down and not visible I use 24” monitors with 1200px hight resolution and I don’t see them, for example “just for you” part is not so useful being as it is, should go lower or put featured and just for you in one row one by other with carousel.
But as I seed after we get our new item we will track and compare visits. In about a month or so we all will see a better picture.
I just don’t get it if you have such a team how come this kind of features aren’t predicted from design itself order on page has a big impact on visits/sales that is in my book a very logical thing or we could put the menu itself far down to the footer wouldn’t we?
All together new items, new authors have such a small exposure and everything is being channelled on popular list and now pushing that exposure to a lower priority is not good at all.
But as i sad will see….
Hi mate, yes this is bound to happen, all i can suggest make some unique improvements and it will go trough. We all went trough that. And are you sure this is a soft reject since in majority of cases design rejections on note of uniqueness is in most cases hard reject.
