I don’t think it helps that much to simply increase the amount of items shown on the frontpage. It won’t help new files if they need to compete with dozens of other files. Otherwise we could just clutter the frontpage with hundred of files- The frontpage bonus would be worthless.
I do like the idea of adding a “new and popular” site. Envato could add a prominent tab on the popular items page… The most important addition however would be an improved search. This is something we are talking about for a long long time. I mean I love envato for helping me pay my drinks after work, but it is kind of annoying waiting for the obvious for so long. The marketplaces are way behind where they should be considering their success. The site feels very 2011 while it should feel 2014 ( if you know what you mean )
Good and fair communication. Thanks.
nice list -thanks for sharing. Don’t forget that istock.com and photodune.net also offer free files of the wee/month! They are usually of high quality.
As for themes: At least for the preview I would buy some high quality images. Good images make such a big difference and it cost you not much compared to what you earn with a nice looking template.
Yeah, some questions are a bit too personal I agree. Also, I couldn`t find Germany in the list of countries at the end
Today’s sunday. The banks and envato will not process money on week ends or public holidays. In that case, it will be transfered the next possible day. In this case, it will be send tomorrow and should get to you by tuesday or wednesday.
It’s terrible. Let’s hope and pray for those families…
Looks great- I’ll give it a try
I sent you an email through your profile page. Might be able to work something out for your theme.
any news on price adjustment tools for authors? I know that it didn’t work out for elite authors in the past but is there anything new in this direction planned by envato?
We are okay with the price increase but would love to have more flexibility when it comes to pricing certain items. The problem is that the more features you have, the more expensive your item gets. But you can’t really create an item that is not responsive etc. without getting the s* beaten out by buyers who demand a full blown theme. Our last item for example is pretty simple but because of the stuff it can do it still sells for $40 even though we really believe it would be far more appropriate for $35. But “downgrading” on features to match a lower price point would piss off buyers…
I think it would be great if reviewers gave is two price options to choose from.
