In Envato’s own words:
At the end of 2014, the total we’ve paid out to Envato’s global community of over 4 million members is $224,000,000.
How can you pay something out if you didn’t sell it?

Sweet sweet hypocrisy.

Typical Envato: http://marketblog.envato.com/news/thoughts-policies-tips-wordpress-authors/

Thoughts, Policies, and Tips for WordPress Authors

Blog post about extreme bundling/demoing (which affects all platforms) is addressed only to WordPress authors.

And as the rest of us read on:

We don’t ever want to place arbitrary limitations to stand in your way as a designer, developer or business, or dictate what buyers should or shouldn’t want. That’s for free market factors as well as you yourselves as authors to decide.

Wait for it…

For commercial reasons, while we are happy to receive general feedback on pricing, we are not able to discuss specific price points, and pricing as a whole remains entirely Envato’s responsibility. Safe to say, we are always monitoring and evaluating pricing and looking for opportunities to maximize earnings potential for the community.

And the community’s stance:

What’s the problem? Looks like every other template website, but I don’t see anything wrong. I mean really, I don’t see a single glaring error / layout issue / design inconsistency. Looks a lot better than $58 of designer time could buy from anyone on earth.

“Can’t see anything wrong with it”.

What.

Let’s not pretend we don’t all sell cookie cutters here. There are +100,000 Avada sites out there. For $58 and two hours, it’s a damn good website for a company that’s never built a website.

If you want to argue it’s a bad website vs a $75,000 / 3 month design project, then I’ll hop right on board. But it’s bad karma for our industry to suggest this company has a “crap” website because they picked a multi-purpose template.

It doesn’t matter what template they pick. They’re buying a cookie cutter and they know that. The whole point of ThemeForest is you’re not hiring a designer and developer, and you get a decent DIY website for 2% of the cost.

Day 4 of 2015 VAT law. Still no sign of life from Envato. Not at all surprised.
