Which communication? The communication works like this “Envato decides what to add, what to change, adds it without asking any authors or buyers anything and then releases a topic on the forum. Even if most of the authors disagree, who cares?”.
Great communication. Well done.
Envato deserves credit for improving some of the stuff. What I don’t like is the totally ignorance in treating the authors and the fact that they decide to do whatever they want instead of maybe asking the community and the buyers that use the forum what THEY would like most and not what whoever is behind the changes want.
Now we see mini bundles. Now, just tell me, who needed mini-bundles? Did anyone ever say anything about that? No, of course not. We’ve been saying that we need a better search engine, a better commenting system, we need “customization” and “support” to be taken out of the options for ratings because they are NOT NEEDED. But you still do whatever you want. I just can’t approve with you guys in this. For the rest of the effort we’re all grateful, but try to involve the community a little bit too.
Envato will become something like “5 ITEMS FOR JUST $19,99”. Seriously? You’re thinking only about bundles and lowering the value of our items instead of helping the marketplaces grow. Do you want to compete with fiverr in the next 3 years? If that’s the target, you’re doing absolutely great.
And as someone said above, Envato is actually Enbundle. 200 items for $4,99 is going to be the next slogan.
ENVATO: WE DO NOT WANT OR NEED BUNDLES. Let us sell our work like we did before, without lowering the value of our work everyday and offering bundles, minibundles, holiday bundles, weekend bundles and whatever other bundles you want to add. Sooner or later our sales will be affected and the top authors will look for alternatives where their work is appreciated and not lowered by each day that passes.
I had sales on 13th so it was online.
If you add it in the “Reasons” list, the buyer thinks he deserved some customization and support and that can make him change his rating.
If he comes to rate and is still not decided and sees “Customization help” in the options list and, previously, he had a customization question, he’ll think customization is actually included and since he didn’t receive any help, he’ll probably rate it poor.
If it’s not required, then remove it at all from the reasons list. You rate based on what you receive, not on what you CAN receive.
And hiding the info from the authors is pointless, they rate our products, not your website, so we’re the ones that should see them at first.
Congratulations mate, well deserved.
Even if you obfuscate the code or whatever solutions you may have thinked of, they won’t work with normal templates, there’s no solution for that, it may take some time in order to get the original code in place if you obfuscate or encode it, but that’s the only effect you can get.
You can’t. Not for HTML templates.
The default wp pages.. Blog page, single post, category, archive page, search results…And I guess that would be all.
