Hey @tommusrhodus, we’ll be on WC LDN! Me (Primoz) and my co-worker Marko (both devs) are flying Friday morning to London.

Fantastic, see you on Saturday!

If anyone else is going, be sure to say hi!

Since you’re UK based the $4 is VAT, the buyer and author fee, though extremely confusing, are part of the original $20 and form part of Envatos split fee (author commission)

Bascially $20 + $4 = original price + VAT

@MigC

Regarding a period of subsidation: This new EU ruling was actually in effect since 1st of January, Envato have subsidised this VAT burden in it’s whole for the past 2 and a half months, which is pretty decent of them I’d say :)

@MigC & @DOGMotion

Regarding VAT added to your items & or, VAT added to your purchases: this new ‘micro’ VAT actually comes from a new EU ruling that any digital product bought by an individual from a country in the EU must have that countries VAT ruling applied to the purchase, is it annoying? Yes of course. Are Envato doing anything wrong? No, they’re just following the new rules as set out by the EU courts.

Thanks so much everyone! It’s definitely been a wild ride to this point :)

I couldn’t of done this without the buyers, so thanks to each and every one of you! Also, to each of my HTML partners a big thankyou, but most of all to Danny (DistinctiveThemes) who’s been running my support for a year now and doing a killer job of it, thanks mate :)

Agreed. It’s horrible for me on a mac. Changing the default scrollbar behavior in such a way is a big no-no in my book, but it’s so popular for some reason. I just can’t grasp why people like to add useless sh*t to their themes.

+1, leave scroll bars well and truly alone

Hey guys :)

Whenever I’ve done HTML templates in the past, I’ve just run the images folder through a heavy blur script in photoshop, this has always been accepted by the reviewers.

Another author here (sorry, I forget) uses the crystallise filter in Photoshop for the same thing, which looks a bit more elegant than a blur :)

vuzzu,

Nothing is hidden on purpose, it’s clearly a bug which both Travis and Christian have jumped in to assure that it’s being looked into.

I think it’s not right when TF/Envato interferes with non TF content.

But it is Envato Content, they’re attaching $200 worth of freebies directly to a purchase made on Envato. If I were to release a theme that said ”$200 Free Themes Extra!” on the item page, there would be uproar, just because they have gamed the system and done it externally doesn’t mean it’s not exactly the same thing, bundling.
