(Meanwhile in the same marketplace, the same copycat author is still selling without a shame, and earning dollars by using an other fellow author’s hardwork.)
You should ask Envato if they can hire you to search and report duplicates and clones. I’m not joking, this would really help to make this marketplace a lot better.

Hi friends, sorry for Non-Related conversation on the forum (copyCat issue), it will never happen again.
The code was the SAME, even was the code comments. 100% same. The copyCat author deleted all the proofs and still selling here, and uploading an item each week by using the same method while thousands of authors try to come up with something original. Envato should be very careful on that author, and numerous authors are already contacted support about them.

Again, sorry folks; will not open the same issue again on this thread , but it was on a purpose, to show that there are much more important and effective ways to improve marketplace (of course InOurHumbleOpinion)
By the way, thanks very much for your kind words @zerostrikes, really appreciate that.

Honestly, I hope it will not be implemented very soon on TF or CC. Because then, it will happen like it happens already on some freelancing websites: people from some countries will start implementing what’s called dumping

And as an addition, it shouldn’T be a matter of time.
Big NO NO on AuthorDrivenPricing.

This thread will go on and on and I can assure you that there will be a poll on this matter very soon, and there we will clearly see that the 95% of authors will be totally against AuthorDrivenPricing, naturally.
That would also indicate that 95% of authors don’t have any trust in their own items and capacities.

Of course you’re totally free to think like that (but I absolutely wouldn’t be so sure about the “trust” and “capacity” of the trend-setting hardworking fellow authors here) ; and I respect it, because having your own ideas is a “right” and whether we like it or not it’s a “right” for every individual.

Why a lot of authors wanted feature where they can set own prices for items, when now you reject it ? It can be for example range of price from XX usd to XX usd or totally own prices but cant be under 30-40 per WP theme

Can you please name those “a lot of” authors?
Let’s see how many they are

And why to “talk” with a new account? What would this place look like if everyone started to create new accounts to let the community know about their ideas?

We don’t need anything to hide here…
We don’t have to agree in everything, but we (including us) have to respect that each individual can have their own ideas whether we like them or not.

So there is nothing to afraid, friend ;)
Be yourself ;)

-1 for Author-driven pricing, I think it’s better to just increase price for big multi-purpose themes..
+1
Of course, the thoughts of the authors of those “multiPurpose” themes are very important too ; but without a doubt this is a far better idea than ADP (AuthorDrivenPricing).

A thousand “NO” to ADP.

Any staff reply on this?
Please let us know if this will be implemented on ThemeForest too ; so we can decide to leave or stay.

We are investing our most precious asset here, our time and it will never come back; so it would be good to know about the future projects.

And friends, if your answer is “yes we are going to implement this feature to ThemeForest too”, just know that “The road to hell is paved with good intentions”.

Why don’t you give your precious authors a piece of peace?
Why are you trying so hard to do the opposite?
Just wear our own shoes once.

Sad, sad, sad.

Why we don’t let customers decide the price?
Yes, we should do it.
If they want to download our items for free, it should be “ok” too.

Please; I need an immediate, clear, staff reply on this ; if this will be the same for the future of ThemeForest, I am leaving now.

- So called Authors blatantly copying “real” authors’ hardwork and selling on ThemeForest, without any fear of a ban (the code is the same, the code comments are the same, yet they are still selling here).
- Authors are caring much more when it comes to “piracy”, then Envato,
- MultiPurposeThemes Pricing issues,
- Continuous wrong UI / UX Decisions,
- DDoS Attacks and slow site,

And Now This?

Friends, what’s happening here?
Aren’t our items already priced incredibly cheap enough?
