I’ve changed mine too ; the new one arrived in approx. 20 days.
Sorry for your issues, Max ; they should send you a special signature card for being one of the best animators here :)

“GREED” will destroy everything. You must always earn more, and more, and more, don’t you?

This would be a VERY VERY BAD idea, authors from low-paid countries will start selling themes for $10 and will ruin the whole marketplace

+1 , yes, absolutely a very bad idea.

BlueHost’s “wordpress” oriented options are pretty consistent (starting from $24 a month)
Also go for VaultPress and Sucuri for extra security services, and sleep with peace ;)

Content is the The Queen, The King, The Prince and the Princess.
Content is everything and a good design is the one that forces its users to showcase their content in an elegant, useful and consistent way.

In answer to your question about too many changes crowded within a short span of time – I think that’s mostly because at the start of the year I took over Envato Market with our old General Manager leaving. Then we planned out a 2014 Roadmap, formed teams, and started work. A lot of the big changes take quite a bit of effort, so now that we’ve hit the second half of the year – all of a sudden all the teams are getting to their respective releases stages. We have a “Launch Wall” here in the office, and it’s jam packed!

This not only gives the positive impression but some scaring feel too. Unlike the past changes / improvements, currently we do not sit and watch the actual outcomes of every change and see how authors and users responds. For example,

- Recently the homepage exposure trends altered for new items. (Subject to imbalance of exposure)

- The Trending feature added for search results. (Subject to unclear exposure benefits)

- The mandatory item support and 72 hour response time proposed, date fixed – just like that. (Subject to unexpected policy changes)

By looking all the above, personally I feel we will be slapped with features as well as instability? Please think this way too.

(Sorry for the hijack of subject, this is my last comment on this topic to respect other users ;) )

Yes Collis, And please bring those “CATEGORY” LINKS back, right over the “NEW ITEMS” section, as they are used to be. Nobody really cares about that “ghost” dropDown and exposure for new items is only tied to “luck” right now. New Items’ exposure is fatal for us, for fellow authors. Even experienced buyers/authors are reported that they even didn’t “notice” that useless dropDown menu, which tells the whole story.

Didn’t forget making withdrawal on 31st of the month! Yay!

Hmmm, if I am not wrong, there was a reminder for that, right? at top of the marketplaces? (a thin bar as we have for the bundles etc.?)

If you prefer Cactus type of plant ; they also eliminate (of course, to a degree) the effects of radiation from electronic devices.

Here’s a suggestion. Allow authors to force refund for specific user and rating from that user will be cleared automatically ;)

Not the best idea. They already downloaded the product and already shared months of our hardwork with all their relatives and cousins.

End result:

1- They have our hardWork , they downloaded it.
2- And plus they have a refund too. So they have our product for free.


If it make’s you feel good.

We had a 2 star rating because of Visual Composer.

And a 1 star rating because of Lorem Ipsum.
