This thread deserves the title: Open letter to Envato Community!
Also deserves this meme:
In such case, even updated date will also mislead. For example 4 years old item can be updated today while 2 months old item may not get updated.
Even if both the dates hidden, buyers can find the age of item by seeing the time stamp of 1st comment. So better display the date!
No questions but food for thought:
An author has low/regularly selling item uploaded 3 or 4 years back. Stopped responding the comment section for 2 years. But updates the item regularly to support new devices, script versions etc. Still the item makes sales here and there. Buyers aware they can’t expect answer from author – as they see no replies on comment section.
Now, if the author doesn’t want to agree the new policy as of December, what exactly the author should do to obey the spirit of selling?
1. Remove the item, so that there won’t be new purchases with the expectation of mandatory support.
2. At the same time, keep the item downloadable for old buyers so that they can download any time and also get updates.
The above example of item support may sound like rare case but if we look closely, that’s what the current trend here.

I don’t like to comment on this but I would say – the way they handled badges – conveys big picture. Not joking but explains the way they make decisions and abilities.
And what about our example? http://themeforest.net/forums/thread/soft-rejecting-that-have-no-sense/140671
Just add the wording “Open Letter to Envato: ” to your thread title and that will get attention
VF saidWhat do you mean?
Just wondering how the item comment section will look once Envato approves sketchpixy’s item
I mean at this rate of reaction speed, you may respond too fast to your buyer questions, both in a positive and negative way . Was joking (please excuse).
Personally, I would suggest you to focus on getting approved your first item, so that you will go through full complete cycle of review process. Just my 2 cents.
