Why? VC is not myn, no use for that and if competition does it and i don’t i lose.
heh do not even get me started on plugins, cmone for example VC cost 140$ extended, majority of themes do not take so long to build and look at there extended prices.
You all know that this marketplace made it on only price dumping and free support. And since envato got big, you guys have a critical mass which lead authors here and when it got to big, people started to look on competitive edge as you say and since creativity of web design is limited to its technology, there is only one way… bundling for existing price. Envato’s system evolves with natures evolution reaaaaally slow with many mistakes
And again why o why would i buy a phone which can send text and make calls, when i can buy not just an iphone but all its devices for the same price? Same goes for plugins why shouldn’t i include something that will take me month and month to develope if i can include something for 140$?
That is why i use ””. the point is that this is a whole in a system, just because you make tons of features does not mean that this is not a separate theme.
Don’t get me wrong, i am not against theme i am just for setting up a competitive price system, that will allow more niche themes to rise up. There are few shining examples of niche themes or unique styles, but this sticks just so long until autors starts incorporating them in into there “demos”. That is why this days asking for uniqueness from us authors is absurd.
So again just raise the prices, and clients will spent much more time trying to find a better suiting item, hence authors will start competing in this field.
But if reviewers do not see this then there is no hope.
These are not just multiple demos, they are indeed “more themes in one pack”. Different home views are different variations built on the same layout. That is the point here.
Kailoooon… didn’t see you posting for aaaaages or am i not enough on forums
well i am glad 2 veteran reviewers are on board.
Well you cannot start rejecting this kind of themes as that would mean removing all top sellers, well most of them. The main point is that appropriate price is given. The advertising in mention was totally ok! “Demos” is the wrong advertising (to be honest we started joining this trend).
This are not demos, since tons of these “demos” are totally different layouts with totally different options.
Why i do not understand why price cannot be changed well because:
If you raise the price, you will most likely cut down by half sales but the price is so much higher the profit is the same… well with half sales there is half support, half expenses so actually you gain. I expressed this so many times i got even directly attacked from some top authors about this.
In the end customers/market decide which will go and for now “multi themes” go, one day it will stop, just remember the tulips
Other then the marketplace, the true powers stands in envato.
heh, someone finally told it like it is I am not against them i am just for charging waaaay more for them.
Well as usual you will get either tons of excuses why this is necessary and for the greater good of the community or a short we are so sorry. Such a shame. Very sorry mate, i really hope you get a satisfying answer.
First week was kind of okish. But this week a disaster!
This is playing with peoples lives! Would like to see if somebody put down envato marketplaces for 4 days, somebody would get such a hard law sue.
Again i am asking for a valid argument, why taking 30% on support earning? Hope this post does not get deleted as last one was. But i think no more then 15% should be taken as here we actually have additional expenses and how will you name this type of charge its a bit hard to name it as platform fee since well… there is no real platform that we use and majority of us have to pay for subscriptions for support platforms.
Not trying to be a pain in the bottom just wan’t someone to help me to understand.
