Sorry if this has been asked before but if we are selling directly to the buyer, will we be able to set our own prices?

Hello amazing authors, staff, and buyers :)

A few weeks ago I submitted a WordPress theme and it has been soft-rejected 3 times for looking like a “Visual Composer Showcase”. This is confusing to me as:

a) All the default Visual Composer elements have been custom designed as part of the theme.

b) I have created additional Visual Composer elements as part of the theme.

c) Not sure on what is wrong with having a strong focus of Visual Composer elements in the theme showcase? The blog post here http://marketblog.envato.com/news/thoughts-policies-tips-wordpress-authors/ specifically states that any included plugins must serve a purpose to the theme and not just be included for the sake of it.

Here are some screenshots of the theme.

Any advice on what can be improved or have I been wrongfully soft-rejected? I’m already receiving emails from buyers that want to purchase this theme.

Try namepros.com. It’s a forum for domains.

There seems to be a bug with the badges. Not sure if others have reported it.

Changing the margin on .badges li to 2px 2px seems to fix it.

The ghost version looks slightly cleaner than the WP version but it could also be that WP is more popular so the quality requirements are going to be higher.

When you learn all the little shortcuts you won’t want to go back.

Here is something which is great for multitasking. Go into your mission control and setup multiple desktops. (I’ve set 4 desktops on mine) https://beinglinux.files.wordpress.com/2013/02/missioncontrol-full-246059.jpg

and then go into your keyboard settings and set a shortcut for each desktop. ( I set mine to cmd+1, cmd+2, cmd+3, cmd+4)

Now you can drag windows into each desktop and easily move between different desktops. I usually have chrome on desktop 1, SublimeText on desktop 2, and the other two for miscellaneous things.

Also cmd+space will open Spotlight. Simply press cmd+space and the first few letters of your app and then hit enter to open it.

Come on guys! I’ve seen a lot of quick tempers on this thread, now, no one can give suggestions to improve the process taking into account the list I posted above? Seriously? :)

Having a simple notification at the top of the item page alerting the buyer about a potential bug is better than the item just mysteriously disappearing of the marketplace.

Enabled,

I agree with everything you have said in the original post but I strongly disagree on soft-disabling items on the first sign of a bug. Just go to the item pages of all the top selling plugins and themes and look at the update histories and see how many bugs are fixed in every update. Bugs are inevitable. Soft-disabling items for every minor bug causes panic and makes it impossible for authors to communicate with the buyers. IMO It does more harm than good and it just leaves the buyers in the dark.

Is there a badge involved in this? :)
