Hi Codestar,

I’ve been studying the framework. Very good work. I’m impressed at how light weight it is. I may switch to using it once am able to port some of my code to it. Thanks again.

Yeah I have waited for over 5 months for my campaign. I wasn’t surprised, I got used to it already, so should you – this is Eliter Program :O

Wow, 3 to 5 months is a long time. My 10 days is nothing compared to that. Sorry to hear all you guys are having these delays.

I think giving away campaign money as a Google Adword gift card or credits in other platforms so that authors can ran their own campaigns is a good idea. Looks like a total waste of money if $1000 generates only 3 sales.

I think the elite program is dying an agonizing death. I got the elite badge about 10 days ago or so and the only message I’ve gotten so far was the automated email saying “Woohoo – you did it. You just joined the Envato Elite Author program…etc”. I haven’t heard from anyone since. I haven’t bothered to contact support because we all know how that’s gonna be like.

When I joined Themeforest the Elite badge was kinda of a motivation to keep going but now am a bit underwhelmed to say the least. Now I have set my own goals. It’s not about the rewards but I think the experience could be better. The analytics is a great feature. A tuts plus subscription was promised but I haven’t gotten that yet.

Another thing that bothers me is how the rewards were lowered when you reach 75k. I think too many people became elites and it became expensive, but was it really THAT expensive considering you’ve made envato almost 30k?

Thanks for sharing. I wouldn’t have known about the campaign otherwise and I love those projects. I’ve added a small amount too, I hope it helps ;)

Great article. I remember my first 5 products here were Joomla Templates. It was fun but I didn’t find Joomla challenging enough to learn new technology. That’s when I moved on to Wordpress learnt PHP, JS etc. Now I find myself doing node js and ruby on rails projects. Most clients I have come across in the last year or so are not interested in Joomla.

No Man, you can’t say you are too stupid :)

Managing a server is a great learning experience but it can be a real pain. It is ok 90% of the time but the 10% when things go wrong you will pull some of your hairs out and wish you had paid someone to worry about that 10%.

Thanks for suggestions, guys!
Am I mistaking: Linode the infrastructure provider behind the WPEngine?

Correct, WP Engine runs on Linodes. I’ve been using linode for years now. I don’t use the managed hosting option so I can’t say how that is like.
