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?

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.

Ok, got a few questions, and I figured since the answers might be interesting for everyone here I ask in the forum instead of sending a mail to tax@envato.com:

Are you also sending it there, though? I feel like you should consider doing so, as you make important and fundamental points that should not be snowed under.

Don’t underestimate the difficulty in designing a well-balanced card or board game. It needs to be both graphically appealing and well-rounded from a game-play perspective, and humour is not free either. There are countless examples of failed attempts that demonstrate this perfectly ;)

I’ll throw in my two cents as well, I guess.

I’ve been using Digital Ocean for the past few months after getting a free bunch of credits in the Github student pack. I’ve been using it for incidental testing purposes, and to run a Tor middle relay. So far, it’s been suprisingly stable. I expected DO to be much more iffy, seeing as they’re quite cheap, but all in all, my experience is positive. Sure, you don’t get sole access to a high-end CPU, but it’s sufficient for my needs.

Apache and PHP (and Python!) come pre-installed with OSX, and adding MySQL is fairly straight-forward. I recommend against installing a complete MAMP or XAMP stack next to these. Instead, configure the built-in services or install drop-in replacements with Homebrew when the versions are not to your liking.

Alternatively, go for an intergrated development solution such as Vagrant that is properly isolated. I agree with guuthemes that turning your Mac into a server is not what you want to do here; keep things under control.

With regard to deleting a folder with rm -rf.. that’s pretty final. Keep up to date backups to prevent this in the future. That said, I have had positive experiences with testdisk. It is crucial that you immediately switch off the disk that this folder was on, as each write you do has a chance of overwriting the data. Given that this is 4 days after the fact, it is likely too late. :(

Exciting! :)

I think I forgot to do my homework and I didn’t submit my Mod Introduction.

Don’t worry, Ivor, I was late too. ;) Being busy is part of the task description, it seems.
