Just as I thought, no reply at all for the whole duration of this. :) Not that I would’ve expected anything else….

Maybe this is a new feature of Envato elite program? I’m also curious about this..

I’d hope not. Decreasing the value of our items IS NOT THE WAY TO GO. What next? Avada 50% discount? Like they’re not already poorly priced.

And of course we’ll probably get a reply from the staff AFTER the promotion ends, when there’s nothing that can be changed. Let’s hope not, but if this happens, we’d better get used to these “promotions” globally

It might be a new promotion feature. In that case it’s a welcome step and Envato should use their subscriber list more often, but to promote deserving items, not individual authors.

what? 50% discount is a welcome step? What’s next? Buy one, get 5?

edit: can anyone send me the author name privately? I’m curious

I’m on a decline too. While it may be true that I haven’t released themes as I used to do in the past, I’m observing the sales of the other items as well, ThemeForest is pretty much turning into templatemonster :) If the traffic is the same, then the amount of items is way too high. They showed no interest in doing anything what would benefit the authors that are working here full-time and I can only assume that sooner or later most of us will go somewhere else, if anything better pops up. And it will. It always does.

Everybody is tired of these huge, monster multipurpose themes having the same price as normal themes and that’s pretty much killing the marketplaces, but Envato couldn’t care less, as long as they get their share.

I’d say they could clean up the marketplaces a little bit too, old items that either look bad or are not maintained / supported in any way and don’t bring value to the end user can be removed.

There’s a bug for soft rejected items. The preview image doesn’t show up. The URL has the “Access denied” message. https://image-tf.s3.envato.com/files/57055319/unrealestatePNG.__large_preview.png?AWSAccessKeyId=AKIAJYG5ROGJ6X7Z3M6Q&Expires=1752191904&Signature=Wo0kbH6hXB8QYmS2KpKCUPSzKl0%3D And this happens for all the soft rejected items.. I need those images to re-submit the items, as I don’t store the preview / icon for each one of them.

Also please add a download link for those items as well, as it’s a crucial feature that’s missing and we’re forced to create the URL ourselves using already-approved themes. (or there may be some other way that others use, anyway, that’s not the point)

Check my “Sura” theme, it’s probably one of the closest things you’ll find on the marketplaces, as far as I know. There’s no front-end submission, but that’s pretty easy to custom code if you have a coder.

Uhm. Sorry, but my opinion is that it won’t go. Uhm….not my opinion… the truth: it really won’t go through the approval process.

Some things I personally see wrong: That green doesn’t look good, not on the top menu(I’d choose a black or a dark color on white) or either the one on the background in the services section where it looks pretty bad).

Plus: non-uniform spacing http://prntscr.com/7ld5be

About us: Uhm, it looks pretty bad, there’s some blank space that I don’t understand http://prntscr.com/7ld62n

Portfolio: I’d try with 1px border instead of 2px on the categories. Plus: lose the box-shadow. And the borders on the individual portfolio http://prntscr.com/7ld6yg

I’d try to work more on this section as it looks pretty basic right now and doesn’t stand out at all

More things: lose the lorem ipsums, use some real text, write something yourself. Or get something from books where you need a large piece of text. Double check the typos too “Why choose” and not “Why chose”

Pricing table: I don’t like this one at all. It looks bad in all aspects. Lose the border between the features or try to put it in some other way. “sing up” -> “sign up”. Button looks is too simple, it doesn’t stand out at all. The gray – green combination of backgrounds mash-up is terrible in my opinion :)

Blog: Uhm, quite simple, you can lose the top border above the titles. And align the arrows http://prntscr.com/7ld8ng

Our team – No, it looks horrible. Random pics of people(at least pick some decent pictures if you want someone to buy it. If you don’t invest time / money in buying at least some decent pics, why do you expect someone to purchase your theme?). The text is too big, the member picture is 1px smaller on both left and right than the text containers and it looks horrible. Non-uniform margins in the description text.

Testimonials: Poor again, the bottom navigation is horrible, the “quote” icons are too big, on the top one the margins are too low and it looks crowded.

Everything below needs to be re-worked completely.

Overall I felt that the more I went down scrolling, the pages were worse, one worse than another.

You’ll have to work quite a little bit in order to have chances with this one. Typography is pretty poor too.

35 – 40 daily WordPress Themes? Wow! It’s been more than 1.5 years since my last item. Seems like a lot of things changed here :) That’s not looking really cool on the author side. It may cause some themes to be lost with the flood.
If you theme is unique and not bloated, it will stand out.

No, it won’t. :) Not anymore.
