So yeah, git. ;)

If there’s anything you take away from this thread, it is that you should try out a version control system. Git and SVN are currently the most popular, so it makes sense to give those a shot. Personally, I’ve had a better experience with git. If you’re somewhat familiar with the command line, learning the basic commands (pull, add, status, commit, push) on the CLI right from the start will make understanding a GUI much easier.


- How people get away with just using a lightweight editor like sublimetext for editing entire sites

I’ve been using Sublime for pretty much everything lately. I realise I’m missing some great features (most notably intelligent auto-completion that the Jetbrains products boast), but the simplicity makes up for that. For me, it’s an alternative to vim rather than a full IDE.

What do you currently do in Dreamweaver that an editor like Sublime Text would not be able to do?

It has to do with the checkout, you have to add billing address now before purchasing if you haven’t already so that’s most likely going to cause some hesitation.
Yeah, I mentioned this in another thread and moderator said “false causality”, which is a ridiculous thing to say IMO. I didn’t feel like arguing the point further, so I let it go.

While causality and correlation are often confused in these matters, I agree that it seems likely that there is a relation here.. Even though it is disappointing, I guess it does not come entirely as a surprise. I can only assume that Envato calculated the risk and the resulting net loss.

It’s just plastered with ‘Author Fee’ everywhere. Couldn’t we just make that a sub-note or something in the same row as the sale price?

Sounds annoying! As soon as I get a sale in the new system, I’ll whip up a few lines of Greasemonkey to fix this client-side :P

There used to be a Google group that a group of authors used as some sort of author-only forum a few years ago after requests for an author-only board within the marketplace were not addressed. It seems it has since died due to inactivity, though.

EDIT: If you’re interested in the history of the subject, have a read through this old classic

Yeah, regarding that, really sorry to disappoint you, but I spoke to authors / friends from France, Italy and Germany and the Netherlands. And all 4 countries allow invoices with NO full address. ...[snip]... Get a better accountant.

I can only speak for the Netherlands when I say that that is simply not true

@dtbaker my question was removed from the questions list, why is that?

Is creating an invoice by Envato from the author to the buyer for each purchase legal?

I’m not sure why it was removed, but I just wanted to give you a heads up that it’s not just Dave managing those summaries, even though it was originally his idea / post ;)

While all this is being sorted and as this new rules are applying in less than a day, I was wondering if is there a way of “pausing” item sales on the market? Any alternative to removing the items?
[snip]

I have previously soft-disabled my items in two different ways

1) submit an update to the item and in the “notes” ask the reviewer to soft-disable your item

2) send in a support ticket asking to soft disable your item

Ah, that’s a great hack! Nice. Over the next hours, I will have to seriously consider going that route (considering that it will take a bit of time to implement, in fact).


Keep in mind that there is 8:37 AM in Sydney. However it doesn’t mean they will answer questions as it’s Sunday.

Saturday, actually ;-)


This is illegal in most EU countries. AFAIK in PL and GER full address is mandatory. This is yet another reason why Envato should be reseller. Invoices should be issued by Envato to Customers and then Envato should: pay commision or purchase templates from Authors (resell).

Indeed. The full address is a legal requirement in the Netherlands as well. Envato claiming that they’ll just omit that is not a solution.

As far as I know, there is no such feature available. I agree that it would have been extremely useful in this situation, but unfortunately there’s no temporary freeze switch.
