There are many such authors I think. Elite with a few quality admin templates – http://themeforest.net/user/Kopyov/portfolio?WT.ac=portfolio_item&WT.z_author=Kopyov
Even without the ability to reply, this is still a good idea to make them visible. After reading the reviews the user can decide if an item with 3 star rating is good or not.
No it’s not. From our experience, 90% of 1-star raters don’t read the documentation nor they ever contact for support and I suspect that any of the authors here would be happy to have 9 subjective negative ratings shown against one objective, even if that last one is helpful for the buyer in some way.
In this matter, better get with ideas on how to raise buyer awareness, many buyers think they buy it from Envato directly and not some author, you might have noticed it from many support questions opened in general forum.
About $40 000. But you should rather focus on having your first item approved, as having too much expectations often leads to a big disappointment:) There are 3700 ThemeForest authors with at least 1 sale and only 1000 of them have passed 1000 sales (and it took often years for many of them to achieve this). So, with hundreds (or maybe thousands?) of aspiring authors who never get approved each year, having a 1000 sales with $58 theme is a BIG achievement. It is ok to dream big, but you should be a little bit realistic at the same time:)
But the guy apparently starts from zero so it’s 50% share initially. For $40.000 out of $58.000 he has to be an elite author.
Elon Musk – The guy behind Tesla Motors, SpaceX and Paypal. Looking at what he does brings this feeling that nothing’s impossible and even a single person can change the world.
With the current system, there’s NOTHING you can do about it. And the only answer from Envato to the myriads of such threads is the regular “We know it’s an issue but we have to rethink the whole system”. We’ve asked Envato millions of times to provide at least any means to contact the buyer back, but no. So my advice is, just forget about that, if something ever changes with this, it will be like in 1-2 years I guess, considering how the new features are introduced and prioritized nowadays…
abhimanyusharma003 saidOk man, just saw “2014” on IMDB. Anyway, I watched it in 2015 and it looks really epic movie.
woorockets saidIt is released in 2015
Vote for American Sniper really touching movie 2014 and based on the true story.
Based on true story? Really? Hollywood makes a really good job on brainwashing. One of the hundred articles regarding that “truth” – http://www.theguardian.com/commentisfree/2014/dec/24/american-sniper-real-life-movies-hollywood
I would drop the client. Unless you really, really, badly need the money, never take such jobs.
Totally agree with CodingJack, if we can’t change the new system, no matter how inconvenient it is for us and despite the fact that 95%+ authors are against it, let’s at least stand our ground on such vital issues as contacting the buyers back and the ability to refund the buyers. If Envato claims its a platform and we are direct sellers and we can’t do anything about it – fine, but let them at least provide us the options and advantages that such model should provide.
