Page builder user here, I’ll give my input:

My page builder based themes work perfectly without the builder, that is, you still have access to a full blog, regular pages, usually a portfolio post type including single posts and archives, maybe even a team post type with the same.

So if you want, most of my page builder themes can be used to make a pretty big site without ever touching the page builder.

However, for those buyers that want to put together a complex, sectioned page, a page builder is an absolute must. I mention “sectioned” because that’s the main thing I find, it’s easy to make a few columns with regular short codes, but throw in some sectioning, complex elements (sliders, carousels etc.) and suddenly you’ve got a page full of short code mess.

That’s when page builders are great.

As for Visual Composer, I’m not a fan, Aqua Page Builder has always been and will continue to be my go to solution.

I hope that helps even the slightest.

As long as you don’t download the theme, Envato will have no issue refunding you, just drop a support ticket and be aware of the wait :)

Why not? People get better at what they do so their current level of competence should be reflected in any ratings, and not mistakes they may have made when they were starting out.

I totally appreciate that, and my rating would certainly jump a few marks if Envato did this, the issue I guess, is the potential for abuse: Upload a bad item, get a few sales, get some bad ratings, delete and it’s like it never happened.

That’s kinda bad. I understand that we can always do hard work to improve things, but since it`s based on past items that doesnt exist anymore, that reputation still follows. Awkwards.

Do you think it’s appropriate to be able to “clean” your reputation by deleting old, poor quality items?!
