1. It’s incorrect to compare multipurpose theme vs “twenty fifteen”. Or “twenty fifteen” can do everything that that multipurpose theme can?
2. If page speed “was not in initial brief” then neither client nor Envato cannot demand it. I’m shocked by the fact that “the envato studio support replies back saying that “this issue needs to be fixed [...] before the job can be closed or they will be refunding back to the buyer””. I think you should contact Envato support regarding these incorrect actions of Envato studio staff.
Hey Oliver!WS-Theme said
Is it allowed to submit this Template as a new one (it has a new Name and also the design is changing). Can anybode answer this Question?
That’s a great question! If both the design and features are significantly different between the two versions, you should be safe to submit this as a new item.
Of course, it’ll still need to go through the review process and there’s no guarantee it will be approvedChristian
This way Envato just pushes authors to create more themes.
Guys, grow up already! This strategy was good for a small marketplace. You are big enough, and it’s time to start growing in terms of product quality, not quantity.
At this moment buyers are getting horrid experience with items that are not on Top Sellers list simply because you refuse to charge for updates: authors have zero interest in updating items the moments they stop selling. In todays world, this business model is not sustainable both for authors and buyers.

And remarks from Envato staff about “respect”, “civilized” and “constructive criticism” sounds as well hypocritical after this thread: http://themeforest.net/forums/thread/preparing-for-upcoming-vat-changes/151408?page=60 and locking it silently
Edit: Thank you for bringing the post back.
Since obviously nobody is going to restore the original post, I will re-post it:
I’m reading and thinking about this: http://www.envato.com/2014
No one will deny that 2014 was a great year both for Envato and us, authors. Though there were some controversial changes, you rolled out lots of long awaited features, improvements and other stuff. Kudos for it!
However. Don’t you find those triumphant reports about THE COMMUNITY (which you [find_your_own_word] by miscommunicating on VAT and “authors are selling directly to buyers” and other smelly things) being a bit hypocritical?
Personally I – do.

Can’t stand even slightest criticism? Yeah, go on. This is how to get things done in managing the COMMUNITY.

You can also go for themes that supports multiple portfolios natively. E.g. our The7 and Armada
From 0 (zero) communication on Envato side I can conclude that nobody gives to much of a … about Elites at Envato. Maybe it’s time to put down the elite.envato.com site, if you are not going to do what’s stated there?
(I’m not saying about lack of communication on Envato side in general. And on VAT particularly.)
