If I am not mistaken, the guy behind that website is freshface…

We don’t have a project like that. Maybe someone from our team talked about this idea in some way or other back in 2010, but nothing concrete came out of it as far as I remember.

Reviewers usually provide good feedback, but when it comes to design it’s not really easy to explain to someone why exactly their design needs improvement so you usually get the cookie cutter responses like “bad typography”, etc.

9 times out of 10 you have to fight tooth and nail for feedback. Usually it’s just the copy & paste soft-reject message.

If your theme is close enough to being accepted they’ll give you specifics.

Not necessarily. I’ve had plenty of themes soft rejected with the same copy/paste “general improvements” copy. It can be very frustrating – but either way, Envato will make their buck – so what’s another day/week in the review queue for us meek authors :)

There’s a whole slew of mess in the UI/X and overall design asthetic with Envato Market in general. These avatars are just awful (and an unnecessary use of precious development time).

how do you manage to create beautiful themes with that Magic mouse? :p

Bahaha – How do you manage without it? ;)

I used to be solely trackpad only, but now I dual wield.

This has us burning. We own hosting, and design services, and now we find we are competing against Envato wiith our own clientele.

We can’t charge 3rd world rates as we are not third world in location.

This had better change quickly. Don’t know who thought out this one but it is completely antagonistic to authors.

And they simply want a cut of your clientele services. That’s all.

I don’t see them taking it down at all – but they could potentially let authors hook up their Envato Studio account one day (as to divert the overwhelming unpopular approach they’ve taken). Still they’ll be getting 30% of a $50 transaction, so doing that has zero affect on their revenue.

I haven’t received any either – sometimes it’s just the way it is :)

If I was a user that don’t understand that much of Installing themes I’d think that I must pay $50 to install the theme..

Which is exactly what they want you think. Then the thought follows by coming back to the author when there’s something not setup/installed right.

I didn’t get an email notification, but it’s there in PayPal.
