So I was browing around a few files and came across one, went through to the author page and I saw the author had a perfect 5.00 rating on 38 reviews. I thought it looked a bit too good to be true, so I clicked through to their portfolio and they have items with 4.5 star ratings – thus making the perfect 5.00 impossible.

I don’t know whether I’m allowed to link or even mention another profile, but seeing as there’s no real way of me showing except to do that… look up the user “[...]”. And it’s not just his profile, if you look at ”...” (who has a lot of ratings!) his is the same.

Initially I thought it might just be one bugged profile, but it’s not. I’ve found quite a few using custom Google searches!

I’m not sure as to where the ratings discrepancy originates from, but calling out authors’ names on the forums – even if for such reasons – may be against the forum rules.

Back on topic: please take into account that some authors remove some of their own items – items with ratings, that is. Not sure if the removed items’ ratings still count towards the global author’s ratings though.

                    @"programmer",
                    @"speed motorcycle racer", nil];

                hasJob:[lifeValues objectAtIndex:3]];
;)

My array object is actually incomplete :D

NSArray *lifeValues = [[NSArray alloc]
                    initWithObjects:@"forever",
                    @"programmer",
                    @"speed motorcycle racer",
                    @"cop", nil];

LOL it’s getting late, I should’ve been asleep by now :D

Would love to help you but unfortunately you’re not an author so you don’t have a contact form on your profile page and there’s no way of contacting you unless you post your email address. Alternately, you could use the the contact form on my profile page to get in touch with me with more details.

Commandline russian roulette:
[ $[ $RANDOM % 6 ] == 0 ] && echo rm -rf / || echo *Click*
EDIT: Added an extra ‘echo’ to prevent injury :P

That really made my day :)

Good question, Ivor! :) I enjoyed the course, loved the clear explanations and straightforward theme building approach :)

Thanks for the opportunity, Envato!

If threads become personal or heated towards a user, reviewer, or staff member the thread will be locked/removed and further actions may be taken. This includes calling out specific items or authors on the marketplaces, which will not be tolerated.
Isn’t it time to lock this one?

Better yet, edited first. Locking should occur afterwards :)

[...] the author only accepts post in private and not on the public forum http://themeforest.net/item/gonzo-clean-responsive-wp-magazine/discussion/2415788 Is this right? I think not.

Although the authors on the Envato marketplaces are not required to provide support, the vast majority of them do. You shouldn’t feel offended just because the author have chosen to offer support on their private forum. It’s in your best interest to be polite and ask nicely for support. I know several authors who simply ignore support requests from demanding and impolite buyers. I’m not saying you’re one of them, just giving you a heads up.
