I got this Harman Kardon AVR 445

and this Infinity Sw 12 With Pioneer S5 surrounds. A perfect combination. The bass from the infinity goes down to 35hz, maybe lower because it’s earth shakingly good.

LOL ! Heads up Oxford dictionary, the term “terrorist” has now been redefined…by pirates. From now on, if someone does that a good deed, he should be called a terrorist. :D

Welcome to a great community. I think this is a very good sign that we are getting through to you guys and communication about what you have planned will definitely help diffuse authors’ frustrations.

Welcome and have fun :)

I just want to add a little comment, in hopes of helping Envato understand the underlying problem here. It must be tough going through all these comments and grasping the source issue. I’ll try to summarize it in one sentence.

You are prioritizing things (read features, visual changes, bundles, etc.) over requests that we, as authors, consider essential to the positive growth of the marketplace(s).

Instead of the 50+ design-related changes you have done in the past 3 years, you could have improved the rating system. Instead of the useless bar to my left, you could have put the reply-button on the comments-section under each reply. Instead of adding the “Upload item” feature to our dashboards (which, I am sorry, but I find completely senseless), you could have simply enabled us to see all of our followers, you could have dedicated 3 months to producing a good searching-system, shopping carts, a way for authors to communicate with buyers anonymously, and oh so much more.

Guys, it’s not about throwing rocks at you, but you keep doing struff that we (or at least I) can’t really comprehend. We have asked for features that are simply essential, necessary to the marketplaces, and we have received exactly the opposite (with some exceptions of course). I stood behind your back when the requests were 1, 3, 4, 5 months old.. but it’s been 3 years! The Envato marketplaces have always been strong because of their strong relationship with the community. If you decide that adding, for example, a “Upload item” feature to the author dashboard will enhance the author’s UX, then tell us why, talk to us.

Guys, I feel your frustrations, being an author myself. I don’t post here much but I check the forum and I try to keep up with the important topics and discussion that happen almost everyday.

It feels like apart from a few awesome ambassadors, Envato has a disconnect with the author community as a whole (or at least it looks like it). It’s like we are banging on a brick wall. Most of the responses provided are half a**ed at best.

It’s very frustrating. Most authors come here to vent these frustrations and nothing seems to be done for months, even years.

I mean, how hard can it be? Most of the features requested here are not that difficult to implement! Some may require A/B testing etc but still…

I wish you (Envato) listen more to authors because a business that doesn’t listen to their customers/authors and adjust accordingly is doomed which is sad but true.

I sleep a lot, go out on walks, and recently have began watching reruns of Top Gear, Mythbusters and other crazy documentaries. I also love messing around with my electronics. Taking them apart basically :)
