Every day i archive my working project files and save it in DropBox.
Congrats mate! Great achievement
Yes you can re-submit the same design with improvements or if you want to submit totally new PSD design you can do it.
The thing is that if we have confirmed an item as malfunctioning or misleading, and decide to contact the author (instead of disabling it), then, potential new customers will be buying a product that we know is not 100% working or as described, which is not legal. That is the main reason right there, to continue to sell an item we know to have certain issues, as we can not expect customers to purchase something and wait for an update.
I’m not sure why envato is legally bound to soft-disable the item IMMEDIATELY when any bug is reported to them.
If there are any legal concerns, when you confirm any bug in some item you can put a notice on item’s description stating something like that …
‘There are a few known bugs in this item, for detail click here …’
In this way, any sale while the notice is there, will correspond to item’s description.
Soft-Disabling and then removing an item (without prior notice) just because it has a bug or two, which is reported by the customer, has many consequences as mentioned by the fellow authors.
If it is envato’s policy, many items here are vulnerable to be soft-disabled, especially newly published themes, because at this initial stage they will have some bugs, mostly.
And if based on such bugs you disable author’s file, authors will feel insecurity anyway. Also because this policy can be misused by any rival theme author to takedown some author’s file, for temporary period, causing him loss the competition.
As a solution:
1: Envato can fix a time frame (24-48 hrs may be) within which if item with respective fix is not submitted (subject to prior notice), it will be soft-disabled.
2: Upon disabling, again, item page should NOT be removed from the market. It has many consequences. Disabling purchase button is enough.
Or may be offering some bribe may help
Well, the reason is really weird in fact. I think i’ve found some bug or limitation (may be) in Mac OS X (Mavericks). My theme name starts with keyword ‘mime’, and in mac ‘mavericks’ version, any ZIP file which has any folder which name starts with ‘mime’ will throw this error.
Prefixing theme folder name with _ (i.e. _mime) or with any other prefix solved the issue for me.
Bad news is, now i’ve to delete 3 days earlier submission to submit the file again.
