Envato recently added { -webkit-font-smoothing: antialiased; } which makes text extremely thin on non-Retina Macs running Chrome/Safari/Opera. I’m squinting just writing this.

Surprised nobody has mentioned this yet. It’s been a few days. This hack was popular a few years ago to make web fonts render thinner, but I rarely see it used anymore. The noticeable color shift is a side effect.

Now we’re stuck with it I guess.

If she is withdrawing your earnings to PayPal, then for IRS purposes she has earned that income and depending on the amount PayPal may file a 1099 report automatically that she received it.

It doesn’t sound illegal per se, but it raises her taxable income so she’ll be paying your tax essentially. Explaining could get sticky if she’s audited because it looks unusual.

@ BrutalDesign ; Did you include your gruntfile in the theme? Curious if this confused buyers to the point where it wasn’t worth it.

So it begins…

This is Envato’s answer to tax reporting and who is the seller.

See buyer’s invoice: https://help.market.envato.com/hc/en-us/articles/204159940-A-Buyer-s-Guide-to-Your-Statement-Document

City + State + Country — AND — full name.

Motivated people don’t need a street address to find you. A pinpoint on high earners goes out with every invoice. That would scare me in many parts of the world.

I’m not even Liam Neeson, and I bet I could touch any author in any city with a little digging. Now imagine what motivation a wretchedly poor and unscrupulous person will have and do.

Unless the author rewrites the theme you’ll either need to start with a new theme or hire someone to rewrite yours. In many cases your content will survive migrating to a new theme, but a lot may not line up.

Next time you announce a feature, could you post screenshots of the before/after process so we can easily see what’s changing? Not exactly helping us be productive when everyone has to go simulate a purchase just to see what the impact is.
hey GravityDept, sorry about that! Can definitely get some before/after screenshots going :) You can see screens of the new flow in this Help Center article

Thanks, I know a lot of tax/invoice changes are “coming soon” and people will want examples as soon as they’re rolled out. It will really help if you illustrate all the edge cases up front, so it’s not a surprise later.

Patience with Envato be locked in 3.. 2.. 1.. seconds.

Until Envato addresses the countless concerns raised in the last 12 months (really way longer) about pricing, taxes, updates, and support they shouldn’t expect us to give them quarter. Some of us have paid in tens and hundreds of thousands of dollars for Envato to make selling easy and hassle-free. That’s not happening.

I won’t be providing any tax numbers until Envato does a 180 degree twist on transparency, communication, and respect to the people who they earn on the backs of.
