Easy to notice that, not every featured item gets exposure converted into sales equally. The conversion depends on category, sub category etc. So without a reasonable amount of time span such as 7 days, featured items will get nothing more than a badge. So 1 day is nothing in my opinion.

Also the more items added to featured section, there will be less attention given by buyers. Weekly peak and valley days are another concern. Anything that syncs with weekly cycle will work better and encourage consistently repeated visits too.

Day 1:
“New project, is it possible to complete by tomorrow?”
“Yes, send me the spec”

Day 2:
“Is that finished?”
“Still waiting for the spec which I asked you yesterday”

Long Silence…. After 6 months…
“Hope you can remember about this project. I tried this with another designer but he left it half done. Can you take care this…”
“I am happy to help you but I am busy for next 10 years”.

haha, people speak about insurance. But when it comes to small chunk of numerous works and minor stress due to unexpected workloads, insurance can’t compensate it :D Pain is a pain. The only solution for these kind of issues are simply taking responsibility. Giving away login details to a random person is never a good practice. Atleast the permission should be removed once we know commitment of developer completed.

@germinc,

Sometimes it is better double check if something is own mistake. Could be a misunderstanding on both ends as you didn’t update the author that those changes are not needed.

This is afterall a product marketplace, where no one including author can be responsible for mistakes on item support / service.

May be someone from dev team attacking your browser :P

Few times I found some chrome extensions contribute bugs. So better check them.

No, that won’t fix it, it will only ruin it for those authors. If you put $100 as the price for your item, do you think someone will pay extra $40 or $45 just to get your theme instead of another 150-in-1 theme? Unless this is forced by Envato, manual adjustation by some users won’t make any difference

I should have explained more… Since the price increment being made voluntarily by author, the author may prefer to do it after some solid sales / earning numbers. That’s safe, healthy for competitors and buyers will pay higher price for a solidly proven / successful item. atleast this will allow us experimenting. As of now there is not even room for experiment.

... But Envato could do a much better job at representing all authors here by pricing themes more appropriately.

We should be asking for better pricing, not necessarily higher theme regulation, because as we all know that will never happen.

Exactly. This is what needs to be discussed more to avoid complex regulations / restrictions.

Everyone may remember there was a price increment tool introduced for Elite authors. That approach can resolve this issue upto certain extent, since many authors would have no problem raising the price upto 2 or 1.5 times a minimal functional item offers. Sadly the price increment tool discontinued – may be it deserves to be allowed again with some necessary restrictions if preferred.

May be they need to filter certain words on titles automatically, without depending reviewer attention.


The rules have always been in place, no ones ever followed them ;-)

Yes, can remember a thread posted by staff 4 years back: :D
