A few months ago, express withdrawals were introduced for very high level authors. They should be allowed for level 3 up authors now as well.

That’s after $40K and only because they don’t seem comfortable holding that much money on your behalf, as they are not a bank after all.

I’m looking for the official statement which says it’s disallowed to use incentives to get people to buy our products. I’d like to point a link to the officisal source / explanation in a FAQ entry where I explain why I cannot give discounts on items.

The fact that Envato Support can’t change an incorrect withdrawal email address or similar suggests it was poorly designed or someone wanted it as secure as possible for some reason.

That’ll be a problem since a withdrawal of mine was made using incorrect SWIFT details, let’s hope they fix it :D

What’s more interesting is what happens the money from the end of the month until the 15th when they actually start processing. It’d be better if payouts would occur on the 1st day of each month and the deadline to request would be the end of the month as usual. Wouldn’t that be more logical?

I just noticed these, when were these added? Great!

Optional WordPress Plugin Compatible With

My questions are… why won’t the “Optional WordPress Plugin” accept my WP plugin zip, where I clearly have the header in the main php file? It says the plugin header is not found.

And should I tick any plugin on the “compatible with” list that may have nothing to do with my plugin, but doesn’t cause an incompatibility either? Therefore they are compatible. Or should I just tick those for which I’ve built in compatibility explicitly?

When clickin the “screenshots” button it’s cool.

NOT when I click on the product picture. I think people are expecting the product demo site when they click that image, just like on ThemeForest.

Also, if you click on the screenshots button below a theme product image on ThemeForest it directs you to a “Page not found”.

Small thing I don’t like is that the item name link any any comment (starting with “on”) does not take to the item page, but the comments instead. It’s not logical.

The amount of time spent on the forums is equal to the time not spent developing = lower sales.

Hmm, so all time not spent developing is spent on the forums? That can also apply to sleeping, or eating? :D

Sometimes it’s just good to spend time with friends.. the best ideas sometimes strike when you’re doing something else, no?

Seriously though, it’s debatable whether there is a direct correlation.. it might depend on the market.. However I have to agree with Scott, as far as the notion of reputation. That, and being an active, helpful and positive poster may help get one noticed for a feature perhaps.. So in those cases, yes it may translate indirectly.

Yeah but what I’m trying to say is.. You figure you wish to work 6 solid hours a day. It’s not that possible to do it in one go as you said one needs to eat etc. With time tracking software you can easily see your efficiency and if it’s about 50% then you already “work” 12 hours. Things that lower your efficiency is link from friends (that funny youtube video), FORUMS, checking the weather, reddit and whatever might take one’s mind off of the actual work. Take the remaining ~4 hours to go to the gym and eat etc. Sadly not much time left for anything else. Compare this to jobs when you are not working from home and the workplace requires your contant attention at high >90% efficiency. Their limiting factor is commute.

I’m on the forums now instead of working. Duh. :D
