Things are simple, if you don’t want to be “under pressure” and basically you want to have any item approved, even if it’s not the highest quality, you are definitely in the wrong place. That’s not going to happen and your suggestion would make things a nightmare for the normal authors, it would take weeks for items to be reviewed.

If you want to go that extra mile, you will stay here, if you want the easy way, going to some other sites is the option. If your team doesn’t like the review process and you don’t want to handle the pressure here, ask yourself if your team is good enough. Top people like challenges, being challenged and doing their best for a product, average people just give up from the first or the second try.

We thought Envato will listen to newbie’s now that they are listening to their authors. If we can’t expect even this much then why should we be part of it?

Listen to what? One author that has no items vs all the others that have lots of items that strongly disagree? Your suggestion doesn’t bring anything good to the marketplaces, it’s just something that would benefit you and the people that can’t get past the review process. This is a marketplace, not a kindergarden, reviewers can’t hold your hand and teach you how to do X, Y, Z

Good to see that we’re being listened. However, it doesn’t really make me any less concerned. This is just a “delay”, something for them to “analyze” the data. Meaning it will most likely still be added.

No matter what, I will never guarantee support to anyone.

I will be on vacation 12 months a year and that’s it. If you force me not to be on vacation 12 months, then it’s clear that Envato will want us to be employees and not partners, which obviously won’t work.

Support is up to our discretion, it comes with OUR items, not with yours, you can’t interfere with our work if you’re not part of it. You deal with your payments and interface and we deal with the items. That’s our agreement.

If the theme was removed since you purchased it, there’s not much you can do about it, Envato recommends you to download the item immediately, as the author may remove it at anytime, since it’s their item, not Envato’s.

If it wasn’t removed, you should be able to download it normally from the Downloads section

Since I couldn’t find any topic related to this, PLEASE STOP WITH THE DAMN BANNERS AND OFFERS, are you guys trying to find money for the winter holidays? What the hell? For the past month we’ve had banners all day long, no surprise our sales are so down

So many messages and feedback and absolutely no official reply whatsoever from Envato. Sad. We exclude here the “business lorem ipsum” some of the staff are posting, we’re tired of hearing BS.

They can’t handle their own support and they ask(sorry, FORCE) us to do it. That’s kind-of funny.

Totally agree! Currently, the trust I have in Envato is ZERO, 0.

We give you 30% of our business and you think you own everything and start dictating stuff to us. No, that’s wrong, WE own OUR WORK, not YOU. You just help us sell, you don’t dictate how we do it and when we do it. Start acting like it.

@collis, what about an opt-out button? A lot of authors have asked about this! Can we have an official response to this, please?
Any response to this one?
Hi there…as part of making support expectations far clearer to buyers on Themeforest and Codecanyon, we don’t think its a good idea to allow opting out.

You don’t think, but we do, we have 70%, you have 30%. You want business, do business, don’t play this stupid game. And I don’t give a damn about the support expectations you might think fit, it’s not your items, it’s not your support, expectations are set BY ME and not BY YOU.

I’m wondering if the guys at Envato are trying from all their power to ruin this marketplace. They’re doing a great job so far.

I don’t care what Envato will say, I will still do support on my OWN TERMS. They can soft-reject and remove my items so I can search something else, along with tens of other elite authors. ;) If that’s what they want.

Just imagine the number of refunds requested because of the lack of support. :D

Tomorrow we might see that our rates dropped from 70% to 50% just because guys at Envato thought it’s cool. Based on the new trend, they do pretty much what they want anyway, basically I’d say 70-80% of top authors do not agree with the latest modifications, yet they don’t care at all.

I’m suggesting to announce every modification and auto-lock the thread. And delete every discussion related to that. It would simplify things a lot.

How about a tab with an Envato Studio big banner? :D That sounds like a more reasonable thing to add.
