2 days is completely normal. If you have a customer who needs an update, you can send it to them directly.

Got a little nervous the first 5-10 minutes, but then Kyrie Irving took over. The dude hasn’t even reached his full potential yet which is crazy.

Great tournament. I hope we’ll see more NBA players next time around. I’d love to see the NBA replace their All-Star game with a “USA vs. International” game. Where the best NBA international players collectively played against the best NBA U.S.A. players.

If you’ll looking for a trusted author then take a look these points: Author rating must be 4.5+ (Recommended 4.75+); Theme rating must be 4.5+ (Recommended 4.75+);

Ratings aren’t a good barometer for judging the quality of an item. It’s really more reflective of support. The reason for this is no matter how amazing your item is, how easy it is to use, and how well your documentation is written, a small percentage of buyers still aren’t going to be able to figure out how to use it. So the author is faced with two choices:

a) Work for free and help the customer setup the product on their site.
b) Choose not to work for free, as custom setups aren’t included with the product.

a = Avoid 1 star rating
b = Guaranteed 1 star rating

If you sell in high volume, an item can almost always overcome these 1-star stingers. But for smaller samples, luck is a big factor (i.e. how many of your total sales were from the type of customer described above).

I guess the solution would be to show buyers the actual rating breakdown (x stars for “support”, y stars for “item quality”, etc.), but I suspect the “support” average would still be low, as most happy buyers would choose “item quality” instead. So the best solution is probably to expand the ratings to more than just a single, overall rating, and instead allow buyers to rate multiple criteria. For example:

Code Quality – 5 stars
Support – 5 stars
Documentation: 3 stars

This would make the ratings much more meaningful, as opposed to just being a microcosm of the support scenario described above.

I tried to warn you Spain. Prophecy fulfilled!

Epic prediction. Rubio, M. Gasol and Ibaka all shot 1-7. Rubio is notorious for having bad shooting nights, but I don’t think I’ve ever seen that kind of FG% from M. Gasol or Ibaka before.

Anthony Davis is the ‘next big thing’. He’s even added the three-ball to his arsenal.

Absolutely. He hasn’t quite reached “superstar” status yet in the NBA, but the Pelicans are never on TV. His production across the board is off the chain. #4 in PER last year only behind Lebron, Durant and K. Love.

D. Rose is looking really rusty this summer. I hope he gets back to 100%. Pau Gasol has always been one of my favorite players, and since the Celtics will stink again this year, I’ll be rooting for the Bulls (I respect Lebron a lot more now than I once did, but as a Celtics fan, I can NEVER root for him :D ).

What’s up with Exum not getting more game time :(

I noticed that. Was looking forward to watching him play, because he’s kind of an “unknown” here in the U.S. who went high in the NBA draft. Guess I’ll have to watch some Utah Jazz games this year.

I sold an item today and my earning is less than when I sold it 2 days ago. I therefore see a decrease I my earnings.

This was explained nicely by QuanticoLabs earlier:

Assuming you are an elite author and earn 70% of every sale, you sold 1000 items a month and every fifth sale has been increased by $2 handling fee. It’s $280 additional income, or, rather was

So draw your own conclusions (and I guess if the fee is eventually removed, it’s a moot point). I just don’t understand why it was necessary to start making buyers think they have to pay a “fee” to shop here when in reality they aren’t spending anything extra out of their pocket.

From the item’s homepage:

Use, by you or one client, in a single end product which end users are not charged for. The total price includes the item price and a buyer fee.

Think of it like this:

You visit your favorite grocery store. All the prices look normal, but after you leave the store, you view your receipt and it lists a “Grocery Store Fee”. You’re going to think “What? When did they start charging a fee? I’m going to the other grocery store that doesn’t charge fees next time”.

Actual cost is exactly the same, but the customer is now shopping elsewhere.

Personally I think the phrase “buyer fee” needs to be removed from to the POS. If I’m a a loyal customer, and today I visit the site and see that phrase, the first thing I’m going to think is that the prices have been raised, and that I have to pay an extra fee now for everything.
