Or it is no longer financially beneficial for them to spend time on a theme that may not be selling well or at all? Since when are authors bound to you for eternity if you bought their themes? This mentality needs to go. You bought a product for a certain version and that’s it. If you get updates, you should be praising whatever god you praise.

Someone complains about authors keeping themes up unsupported when they need to be taken down. You’re complaining about authors taking down themes which have gone unsupported. See the problem?

From personal analytics, less than 0.75% of visitors of my live previews are IE8 users. Less than 3% are IE users in general, with 9 and 10 included, which make up the majority. It’s hard to justify offering IE8 support for future themes when less than 1% of all viewers see it, let alone buy it and use it.

I, too, have a theme in-progress based on the new post formats but I was pretty underwhelmed by the inconsistency of the UI. Some formats got it right with the revealing UI like audio/video, only missing options for a placeholder poster. Others like chat, quotes, etc. was incredibly annoying. Chat especially. Basically, it was impossible to have any content/text other than the chat transcript otherwise the parser would break. Quote had to be the first thing in the content, which is okay, I suppose, but it’s not very understandable. And the status/aside post formats are just useless, in my opinion.

It’s unfortunate that they wasted that much time and retracted it at the last minute. Working with the new implementation definitely shed light on how poor the UX of switching themes that support post formats really is. It’s essentially impossible without redoing all of your posts.

Oh well. Back to your caves, everyone.

My latest favorite is Person of Interest. You guys should really give it a try. It’s created by on of the three Nolan brothers and simply is an amazing series. Had high hopes for Arrow but so far, it’s not that great.
I also like Dexter,BB,community

Person of Interest, confirmed. I can’t remember the last time I enjoyed a show so much.

I don’t believe there is anything in the terms preventing you from doing whatever you wish with your item, as long as when you submit it with exclusivity, it is not available through other channels. Once you remove the item, you can, once again, do whatever you wish.

love the buy now option, this means a lot more of sales with that extra $2, yummy :) Great news! Next step is an increase in the price of the items in some categories in Graphicriver.

This thread is 3 years old, by the way.

Let’s say I made the investment of $117 and received a coin. What use does a coin have in the eyes of a person or company that does not recognize or refuse to accept the coin?
...this is another pyramid scam…

I don’t think you know what a pyramid scheme is. Allow me to direct you to the Wikipedia page.

I’m 14 :)
A 14 year-old Moldavian author. Nice, I was 16 when I first opened Photoshop. Good luck buddy! I’d like to see where you are in a couple of years. :)
Ah, I discovered Envato when I was 14 as well, also from Moldova. Crazy how many (known) authors there are from such a tiny country.
Are you from Moldova as well? I’m 23 years old(from MD). :)

Yep, moved to the US 10 years ago though. I’m 19 now.
