Hi guys – apologies if this has already been asked, but I wanted to know something. In the blog post, Collis mentioned “For European buyers, VAT may need to be added to the price of items sold by authors located both in and out of the EU.” My question here is how on earth could this possibly be regulated? The very notion of a digital marketplace is that items are not physical and are just a series of bits and bytes, just like the authors here.
Unlike Google or Amazon, whom probably already know your name, address and other information, at no point am I required to disclose my country, and even if I am, it’s very simple to fake it, I can have an IP address located in every continent on the planet in over 30 different countries, so I just don’t understand how you know what “Europe” is when you’re dealing with entities who just so happen to be people who are represented by nothing more than a username…I can even fake my country when it comes to payment processors. To be honest, it’s about time Envato allows users to pay using Bitcoin, because I get the feeling this will only get more popular and allow people to buy things without being tracked as you are proposing for VAT purposes.
^ Something like this would have been better (Our humble opinion – we are not masters of illustration). Also with colors differentiating the status (keeping the badges clean) along with tool tip info description.Or else, simply the older one should be back. In all cases, the new badges are not professional
Still prefer the original, but if they are going to change the badges at least get their own designers on garphic river to come up with something, because you guys have done an awesome job. How about a competition where the public can vote and winner gets extra prize + featured items or something?
Guys there is a survey here: http://themeforest.net/community/badges
Maybe it will be more helpful if we fill it outCheers,
Maybe companies should start asking us about changes before deploying them? Not enough places do this and then they wonder why they get the reaction that they do.
“You should be aware that there are potentially serious consequences to filing DMCA notices, particularly inaccurate ones.”
Lol, that’s hilarious, considering there is literally no consequences to filing an incorrect DMCA, it’s gotten so bad even robots are programmed to send DMCA requests and they are inaccurate beyond belief. the entire system is flawed and abused to censor content, or used to gain an unfair advantage on these marketplaces. And what can you do about it as an author? Nothing.
Perhaps the most horrific logo of the 21st Century?
Funny – one of my items got disabled because buyers complained “it didn’t work with the latest version” of the software my script was based on
Sorry guys, but now you just look like you enjoy moaning. The new feature is pretty good. If an item has 6 ratings with 5 stars and just 1 with 1 star then obviosly the item is a good item with one crazy person who didn’t like it, and buyers know that because they see it on Amazon and Google Play and they see it on every marketplace. If the text will be required then people who rate will drop significally, because if now it is difficult to make them rate, how do you imagine with a required text? Then again, if you require the text just for one and two stars what you will get will be a file with six “five stars” and two “one star” WITH a bad feedback like “It has these bugs” or “the file is large I had to install it via filezilla” or “the documentation is very unclear, it look like the person doesn’t speak English” which are valid feedbacks, but are negative, besides, it will be wrong.
I know that you want to get rid of those one star ratings you have there, but guess what, they are normal, the file would look scammy with 3563 “five stars” ratings, so if you want a good rating, make a really badass file, but don’t moan just for moaning.There, I said it, attack me now!
This. This and only this. This should’ve been /thread because that comment is spot on.
Guess what peeps? We’re not the only marketplace in existence and if you think 1 star is bad, just go look at Apple or Google or Amazon or any other marketplace that exists. It’s the same problem and you just deal with it. We see 1 star on amazon all the time, this is not something that is new or exists only here.
God damn we have the start of a better rating system and people are still not happy, be grateful something is at least being done and after all these years we’re finally being acknowledged.
I wish you all the best with the business and don’t want to be the one pissing on your cornflakes at a late stage in the project but that front page looks really cluttered and lacking any kind of visual focus at all. The eye’s pulled in 10 different directions trying to figure out what is important, relevant content and what’s not. I’d de-clutter, make the titles a lot clearer, give the page elements some room to breath and not try and put every function of the site on the home page just because you can.
This was my first impression exactly. Overall, good work, but yes, decluttering the front page would be helpful.
