In a another topic about ratings I suggested that 3 star or less ratings should contain a description and reason for the rating. This has now been implemented. Not sure if this is due to my suggestion or because Envato already thought of this themselves.

Another part of my suggestion was to only allow buyers with more than X purchases to rate items. The reason for this is that when we released our first theme, we received a few 1 star ratings based on demo content (Where are the images? Send me the images or I will give you a 1 star rating!) and that customer support didn’t answer their questions within 2 hours.

Envato claims that no more than 350 ratings every day are of 3 or less stars. Buy imagine that a support staff member will have to evaluate 100 rating complaints from authors every day if authors can report ratings for incorrect reasons. (support, demo content, etc) This would be kind of costly for Envato. This is why I think we should only allow users with more than X purchases, to rate items. I mean how serious is a rating from a person that has never worked with WordPress and buys a WordPress theme.

PS: This is the same as if we would allow people without any knowledge on political subjects to vote for political candidates. Oh wait bad example, that is actually happening.

Hello,

You should probably start with Photoshop. But make sure to test certain details with CSS and HTML before considering them final. Most of the time fonts render different in HTML than they did in Photoshop. Also some limitations in CSS or older browsers might make certain details impossible to implement in HTML/CSS.

Make sure to make a design of all pages, layouts and components/shortcodes to make sure that you have this covered before starting with HTML and/or WordPress.

You should also try to use most of the demo content in your Photoshop designs as this makes it easier to set up a demo later on. If you don’t have the final content for your demo when starting to work on it, you might end up making a demo that doesn’t look as good as you initially expected. Another risk is that building a demo might take longer if you don’t have a clear picture on what to do for the demo.

Making some color variations of the design is also something I recommend, as this is something that your users might want to do. And of course if your theme allows users to change the color scheme, this would be essential.

Cheers

Hello Joe,

Do I ONLY get commissions from NEW Themeforest users? (where new = never visited Themeforest ever before)
Yes, that is correct. But you only receive commission if the user hasn’t deposited credit or purchased an item before on any of the Envato market places. So you also receive commission if the user already existed, but hasn’t purchased anything before.

Do I only get commissions on credit deposits? Or does all money spent count?
No, for both purchases and credit deposits. But only the first purchase or deposit.

If a user has previously bought from Themeforest, and then they visit my affiliate link and desposit money, am I eligible for any commission?
No, you will not receive any commission then.

Cheers

Hello everyone!

We’re looking to hire someone to help us with our customer support. We are currently using Zendesk to support our theme(s) and we’re planning to move to a forum based solution.

The person we’re looking for should be skilled in WordPress development. This means a good understanding of how WordPress works. But also know a good deal about HTML, CSS, JavaScript/jQuery and MySQL.

We have about 5-12 support requests per day and that means we need someone for about 1-4 hours per day. We provide support from Monday to Friday.

We can pay you using PayPal or any other payment method. This needs to be discussed.

If you’re interested or have any questions, please send us a message through our profile containing your name, email, skills, portfolio, rate per hour/month and any other relevant information.

Most themes that work for 3.5-3.6 are suitable for 3.8. Make sure to check whether the author has some history here in ThemeForest. You can do this by looking at the badges under their account name.

Most authors provide support with their themes. But if the author hasn’t updated the theme and hasn’t produced any themes in the last 6 months, you should probably be careful.

Vlajki has a valid point about the some high class themes. Nearly half of all themes have some kind of method of changing the color scheme. You should go through the product page and have a good look at the demo. Some themes have a demo customizer that allows you to change some colors within the demo. This indicates that the theme’s colors can be changed and often include a dark and light version of the theme.

Hi everyone! :)

WaveThemes is looking to hire someone to help us with our customer support. We are using Zendesk to support our theme(s) and we could use someone to strengthen our support team.

The person we’re looking for should be skilled in WordPress development. This means a good understanding of how WordPress works. But also know a good deal about HTML, CSS, JavaScript/jQuery and MySQL.

We have about 5-20 support requests per day and that means we need someone for about 1-3 hours per day. We provide support from Monday to Friday. But we are aiming to provide support in the weekends as this would be more comfortable for customers. So even if you don’t have time on every day of the week, please apply and maybe we can work it out.

We can pay you using PayPal or any other payment method. This needs to be discussed.

If you’re interested or have any questions, please send us a message through our profile containing your name, email, skills, portfolio, rate per hour and any other relevant information.

Yeah it seems a bit messy now, all icons. Maybe its from the nature we used to see themeforest we’ll get it as normal after some time for sure.
Your logo is awesome! Keep up the good work!



On Topic:
I think that the new design is in Envato’s best interest, not in the best interest of the authors.

When we launched our theme RAW there was another theme that was launched a few days earlier named Raw. This was a huge disappointment for us. We just spent a few months working on a project and we’d have to change the name a few days before launching it because another author came up with the same name.

To make it even worse… We ended up on the Popular Lists right next to each other. This was very frustrating for us and I can imagine that the author from the other Raw theme felt the same.

Now to get on the subject: What everyone need to realize is that the item name is ‘Avada | Responsive Multi-Purpose Theme’ not Avada. We’re the ones that started nicknaming themes ourselves. So the other Brooklyn’s author didn’t break any rules.

I don’t think claiming names for themes is a good idea but I do share your frustration with the problem. We would run out of good names in no time. Perhaps there should be a cool-down period for a nickname. For example for 3 months. Say my theme is nicknamed Pixeler and another author submits another theme nicknamed Pixeler, then he/she would have to change the name/nickname/prefix of the item before being approved. But then again, how will this work on other Marketplaces? I can’t image the implications if such a rule would be enforced on ActiveDen.
