This is a big problem, and if “copycat” authors survive this without serious punishment (BAN the author and the email address, and take legal actions), they will do it again and again.
We also have a case that two of our author friends’ work is copied, even the comments of the code is the same, let alone the designs itself. And copycat author is STILL selling on this marketplace. He steals different parts from different authors’ work and makes money from the hardworking authors. Code is the same, code comments is the same, design is the same. Our friends sent a DMCA, but guess what? Author removed the parts they have copied and continues to sell here, and of course, our friends can’T even send a second DMCA because shameless so called “author” removed all of the proofs now. What a shame! – Is this justice? No.
How can an author continue to sell here while they even copied the code comments?
The BAD intention of the author is obvious and the intention is the thing that we should punish here. And that is a clear BAN fom the marketplaces.
The shameless “author” is still selling among us, making money from the work of honest hardworking authors.
Envato’s behavior is important here.
If they were visited themeForest before it doesn’t count; in such cases it would be best to tell the customer that they have to clear their broswer.
“Featured File” area is broken, it looks weird (Author’s Featured Item on their own profile pages)

Believe me ratings are public enough with the current structure
Hi fellow author friends,
As I always say, it’s all about..:
- A better referral system: This will bring more and more NEW customers to the marketplaces, whether it be GraphicRiver, ThemeForest or 3DOcean. Envato’s referral system is the worst I have ever encountered. Please look how your competing marketplaces are doing it and learn from them.
Current Referral system is really far from being attractive for Affiliate Marketers (and affiliate marketers have a big impact when it comes to the success of Envato Marketplaces.) – Just fix your referral system, Envato. This will be beneficial for everyone ; for authors, marketers and of course the marketplaces themselves.
As we all know, with the changes that Gogle have made over the last couple of years (Penguin, Panda and so on and on) it became more and more difficult for New Affiliate Marketers to benefit from organic search results, so at least make your ReferralSystem more attractive, else no one will deal with this kind of “lacking” referral system for bringing new customers to your marketplaces.
For example, you may give a very little percentage of commission for the each future purchase of the referred member. Attractive Referral System would create wonders for us all with the LOWEST COSTS. Please think about this.
Would you deal with Envato’s referral system if you were a new AffiliateMarketer? Absolutely NOT, you wouldn’t waste your time.
- Equal Exposure Right: It’s obvious that this is easy to say, but this also has vital importance. For example, perform a search on any category page, and you’ll see that the results’ pages have (or they can be) full of items from the same authors. Why you’re not giving a chance to other authors instead of listing the 4-5 items of the SAME author on the results’ pages? You can handle this with a very simple algorithm. What is the meaning of displaying 4-5 items from the SAME author on the same search result page? Please think about this.
- We also need those pagination buttons both at the bottom and the top section of the item category pages. On the world of the web, TO SEE IS TO CLICK. If visitors don’t see those pagination buttons, they will NOT click on them. If they don’t click, they can’T see other items. This is a very basic USABILITY mistake.

tohidgolkar saidThis is a good one, probably the only one that aliens would be able to understand and get an idea of where earth is, and also shows that we understand our own solar system, so it makes us seem somewhat advanced / intelligent
We are in Solar System, best address that who we are in universe.
+1 Great one
