I had this issue as well but I don’t think there’s any other fix. :) But on 99,999999% of the cases, no user will ever add that many menu items so you shouldn’t have to worry about it. :)

Sorry but this is nowhere near close to something premium. It’s miles away from anything that would even get soft-rejected here, sorry. I’d suggest taking a look at the library of psd’s and templates already approved and study for a few more weeks / months.

big no, most of the customers have no idea what those numbers mean and assume eveything above 85 is a fast theme.

Apparently Envato has too many authors and gets too much money from us so it starts removing and soft-disabling items.

How about you get your review team do their job in a normal fashion? I remember a time when the number of items was no different and there was just Ivor and kailoon. And everything was just fine, maximum 12-24 hours review time. Now I see new reviewers that have no idea about the standards here and soft-reject items for absolutely non-sense. And then you need to wait days before you get a chance again.

It’s easy for you to soft-disable themes without sending any notification upfront. If you’d approve it within a reasonable time after we update it, it would be totally fine, but waiting DAYS for getting it back is NOT OKAY and costing us good money. You can’t just screw us over and over and over again and think this is ok. You need to stop it!

Hey guys. Trust me when I say this is a super important topic. Being as complex as this is, we won’t be able to post as frequently as we get things worked up, but we will be giving you details as soon as we can. Thanks!

Hey there! We totally get that, however, it’s already 20th november and we have one month and one week in order to, possibly, change our business model. It’s not hard on your part to let us know your plans. You don’t need to implement anything, just let us know of what’s upcoming. A reply per week and that one being vague is not helping.

Finding your plans on Christmas won’t do much to help any of us.

What’s with that text? typo or? Or is it one of the “buyers send money directly to authors” “improvements”?

Envato is covering their tracks. This month’s payment via paypal is not called “Commission Payment” anymore.
Instead of commission, what exactly it called right now?

“withdrawal”

later edit: +1 for the above reasons too @Cubell!

Apart from VAT, we’re declaring that we’re getting a comission and not that we’re selling directly. The issue with the VAT is just one way to look at it, Envato declares everywhere that we sell to the customers.

In order to be legal, that’s what we should declare to our authorities as well. And you can’t do that, as they don’t provide you with the info required in order to issue licenses and invoices to the customers.

It’s as simple as that. In all the countries. You can declare whatever you want, it’s true, but as long as Envato will say that you’re lying, it’s your word vs theirs. :) They will never say that they’re selling to the customers in order to help you with your possible issues, it’s pretty clear now.

Changing the whole model impacts everything we declare to our governments.

As for the people that are saying it doesn’t matter what Envato says, we only get one payment and it’s pretty clear that we don’t sell to customers. That may be true, but you will still need to prove it. :) They will look for the money flow and where they come from and for what services. I think it’s possible that they can say that we authorize them to do the work on our behalf and hold our funds and everything, however, I never signed up for anything like that.

The moment they will put us to sign an agreement with something like that is the moment I will most likely look for alternatives.

In the end, the authors will prevail, don’t forget that your revenues are created by all of us. We leave, you’ll pay less taxes on nothing. :) I owe a lot to Envato, however, the brand name doesn’t mean anything to me now, I wouldn’t even think one second if I had the chance to leave for something else right now.

And, even if it may be funny to say that, you still have a way of turning it back, even if it may look too late. Show a little trust in the people that generate your revenues and don’t try to put us at risk. In the end, we’ll still have our products which we can sell, I can’t say the same for you.

Also the fact that we’re getting one reply a week is pretty sad.

:) How can we continue to work with Envato when they’re fooling us right in front of our noses? My trust in Envato at this specific moment is 0, soon to reach a negative value. And I’m 99% sure that it’s the same for many other elite and power elite authors.

It’s pretty clear that whatever issues you may have with your governments in the future, Envato won’t do anything to help you, but simply to save them from any responsability.
