^ I thought that’s what going on here already – in a natural way. The only difference is we do the same by sharing individual opinion. I afraid both of us deserve Mr.Obvious badge. :D

Congrats!

800 sales is reasonably reasonable reason to be happy! :D

Kinda takes the human element out of webdesign.. then again computers will get smarter and smarter… perhaps in the future computers will mind read clients and output their website :D

Then computers will mind read computers and things will end up with “null” :P

Lets see experimental attempt’s immediate practical usages too ;)

This sounds great, but one problem I see is what happens if a buyer contacts us after his support expires?

Voluntary help is always upto the author’s decision. There won’t be any restrictions for buyers for such requests and author may or may not respond those. Similar to how things work now.

However the consequent issue would be possible bad ratings after support expiry. This is complex to handle.

Authors with items on ThemeForest and CodeCanyon will be able to choose whether or not they support each item (on an item-by-item basis).

Great move, hope this stance will not be changed any time in the future! :)

^ Was pointing it from support context. We all know highly dynamic content items (TF, CC) can’t take creative freedom (on creation) more than certain level due to device limits, usability limits which is different than GR, AJ, VH items (which are semi dynamic or static enough to allow much more creative freedom). So finally “let go of certainties” can’t be done for “buyer content” (can’t avoid testing and support). We may do it for static content on which we put our hands directly.

^ I think this well fits GR, VH, AJ, 3DO etc but from my experience, I would say TF and CC falls under more than 70% compatibility, usability, flexibility and around 30% creativity. Sorry but at certain point, it requires measures :)

Doesn’t mean I incline with support topic but pretty sure the creativity criteria can’t be weighed here.

^ May be those times community managers didn’t want to take the risk of answer and flame or not even familiar with system and other staffs. If that’s the case, they are not helpful at all, should have been titled “forum managers” instead of “community managers”.

Anyway, two words are mysterious right now. Community and commission :P

^ In my theory, a bad+bloated item can be a 10 sales theme that got lucky exposure/sales uploaded in a “trendy time”. While a good item can be off-beat from trend that lost its 10 sales due to exposure instability. I mean lets stay away from this topic – with the concious that removal of items can’t help system but may help the author of item :D
