Jaynesh said+ 1, Updated items should be highlighted ! That would improve the situation.
Having something as simple as a “Latest updated items” list on the front page can solve a lot of problems on this marketplace.
A big No No.
This would only give some authors a one more way to “cheat” the marketplace.
What we need here actually is a new space on the front page which randomly displays an item from each category, to send those items’ authors some exposure they need (of course, there would be some criteria like a rating treshold etc.).
All of those efforts to bring the end of Flash is really nonSense.
FlashPlayer has its own place (Of course we are not talking about “videos”, Flash has its place especially in education and gaming industry), no matter what some haters say.
I would say, “idiots”.
Hi friends, wish you great sales all.
It would be better if the future “UnOfficial” community space include nonElites too.
Elites’ and NonElites’ problems are all the same, not different.
And “important data” or “marketing tricks”etc. may also come from many nonElite authors too
We need an Unofficial Author community without any restrictions.
KindRegards to all,
Facebook is the best way TO WASTE TIME, stay away
Hello, I have here two accounts. One as lipowski, second as mlipowski. I guess I bought around 200-300 items here. Sadly, i didn’t use them all. When I do shopping, I use Search. Eg “post slider”. Lots of authors has not enough keywords when uploading item.
I do filtering by best rating, high sales and best match. I will choose 5 or 10 items which I could buy. Then i am looking when was item released and if author is uploading item from time to time. Example: if i want WP theme and it was released in 2013 with no updates, I won’t buy it. I need to see that author is providing support with updates.
Also VERY IMPORTANT thing is available demo. I hate video previews. Also I am checking Comments. If I see some author’s arogancy to not experienced user or not answering questions, also I won’t buy the item.
After shopping and testing the item I do rating. Usually I rate with 5 stars. Sometime I would like to rate with 10 stars, lol. Few times I rated with one star, because item didn’t work as was promised and after communication with author issue was not fixed, also author was not standardly friendly, I had feeling I was disturbing.In overview, my shopping was always quite successful. I like Envato market place very much for shopping. Just my sales on photodune are low
Thanks very much for all your precious time.
As I have already said before, I hope this thread will serve as an “Almanac” for all of the community here.
christhelwell saidHi everyone, Just letting you know we are still working on the changes Chris mentioned, we hope to have them out early next week. Thanks for your feedback and patience!
So, taking all factors into consideration, we’ve decided to:
- Keep the new screenshot lightbox
- Make the main image link to screenshots by default unless there is a live preview – in which case it will go to the live preview (or do nothing if no screenshots or live preview)
- Add an overlay on hover on the main image which provides a cue to users to show that a) the main image is clickable and b) what will happen when they click
Thanks very much, for your heads-up, Michelle – You can’t imagine how good those feedbacks make us feel. Please do this more and more.
I purchase items based on my clients needs, or for my own needs if it’s a personal project. In all cases I will chose a theme that has good support; there are a few that I have really liked the look of, but that haven’t had any response to simple pre-sales questions; and those are themes I ignore.
Currently I am looking for a new theme to use as my own personal site and I am frustrated with all the hamburger navigations – it seems theme designers have taken this from app design and thought “hey that looks cool” and applied it to desktops which just does not work and makes the theme completely unfriendly.I hope this is a trend that will stop because some nice themes are not getting sales because of it.
Thanks very much for your precious time ; I hope this thread serves as a good source to all of us.
Just letting you know, thanks.
