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.

A few weeks ago a buyer gave a 1 star rating on one of our themes (I have a few accounts here and partnerships). A few minutes earlier he had left a comment asking for help but he had not given us a chance to reply. I sent him a message and almost immediately he admitted that he had made a mistake and rated the wrong item. He went on and changed the rating to 5 stars and said he loved the product and apologized multiple times.

So yes, I think if we had a way to contact buyers who give low ratings it would greatly improve the situation. At least they would be held accountable.

Overall this proposal is 99% the same as before. The only thing that has changed is that it is now opt in which really isn’t a choice given how marketplaces work and you stated that the prices will be the same. We already rejected the previous plan. Your should leave support alone, maybe add clearer definitions about what is included in support and then charge for updates or yearly licenses.That is where the value is. A solution to those pesky 1 star ratings needs to be found.

  • Buyers should pay for updates – you’ve monetized the wrong thing. We are already offering support for free
  • If you insist on charging for support then items with opt in support should not be priced the same as those that are not. It is simply not fair to anyone.
  • If you are going to take 30% for the cut you have to offer something in return. You already are taking at least 30% of the item price.

My 2 cents.

Holy sweet mother of all that is sidebars please move it back to the right. Having the sidebar on the left is so awkward.

I agree it will work better if it is on the right.

This looks and works great. Congratulations on the launch. You should consider adding update date to the list of filters. The best products are the ones that are always being updated.
