I really wonder how much water is simply wasted like this while many are dying for just one drop of it.

^ I don’t care about water. The required care level varies place to place depending on availability of water and arrangements. Earth’s gravity will take care most cases – why worry too much?

But it is worrisome to ignore the search system improvements here which causes inefficient exposure / purchase / product connectivity issues of such a huge library of items / resource being wasted for a long time.

Sorry for the off topic.

Hi VF, I am with you all except the “water” thing. It’s too “expensive” to waste.
It wasn’t off-topic ; exposure is water to us, to any fellow author here.

Whole this “ALS ice Bucket Challenge” trend exactly shows the hypocrisy of our race, and our way of making fun with serious matters. Ask 90% of those “challengers” about the meaning of the abbrevation “A.L.S.” and they will look with empty eyes to you. Save those water for those who really needs it, and donate some money.

Edit: I really wonder how much water is simply wasted like this while many are dying for just one drop of it.

Please listen to your authors ; Jonathan, DigitalScience and Designova have valid points here. Why are you trying to “fix” where things shouldn’t be fixed?

When I hear the word “refund” in a place where life is definitely not child’sPlay like themeForest, I feel like I’m listening to one of Justin Bieber’s songs :) :) (just joking)

This is a digital marketplace and “refund” option is too abusive (even though I offered refunds in private via payPal for my customers in some conditions, even though I was losing $10 for each).
Once they download an item, they download it and they already have it for all whether they use it or not.

What I suggest IMHO are..:

  • Encourage your visitors to ask questions on your item’s pages.
  • Be very descriptive about what they will be getting with the download package
  • And also include a “READ-THIS-FIRST.pdf” into your help files that covers the most critical aspects of your digital work (i.e “How to install a WordPress theme” etc. As you know there are many customers who don’t know which file to upload to their server)
  • And add a notification like “please ask us questions if you ever encounter a problem , we are here to help you with our best” ;)


  • Those may at least save you from some of the possible negative ratings.

As other fellow authors stated, Logitech Performance MX is simply the best one I have ever used.

Most of the fellow authors are building everything themselves here.

Sure, every little helps..
No, it’s not actually “little” ; new items need exposure and that category links was the key for that. All we want is “equal” and “fair” exposure right for all fellow authors.
Maybe the “fact” that it is not little is just your own illusion? I guess it is as much exposure to us as starting a thread in forums or…complementing on someones item… nothing we should worry about too much in terms of boost in sales..yes it was perhaps more relevant when new items were presented bang on the front page and not on the far forgotten footer..

Real illusion is hiding the links from visitors and expecting them to click on them. :)

^ Eight days ago they said that will bring those buttons back but will take some time because of “envato birthday and a lot of new stuff shipping”. Please allow me to be a bit sarcastic, bringing those buttons back is not like building space ships and shouldn’t take that long! We all know, exposure and visibility are everything! Right now seems that only Envato staff doesn’t know it. I will repeat what a fellow author said in a previous post: one-click is better that two-clicks and visible is better that hidden.

Yes but did you think why it has not been implemented yet? They (Envato) have the information whether those links were in fact crucial to generating sales or not, so bringing those links back just cause it seems logical from an AUTHOR’s point of view does not make sense. And the whole new items list was moved down the home page for a reason too, cause I think its only viewed by other authors, not buyers.. I can not imagine a scenario where the majority of buyers hover over the new items list, feeling lucky, clicking on totally random items to look for something specific.

But we can imagine a scenario where at least some of the buyers are looking for something new and fresh, and the word “SOME” can make a real difference for those who are trying to feed their family with an income from a stock market.

If visitors can see links, they can click on them ; if they can’t see category links, they will not click on them.
