I’m rather speechless now, that is quite an extraordinary achievement. Thanks for the Motivation.
It seems there are no item requests on photodune yet.. let’s start then.I’m looking for photographs similar to these: http://img822.imageshack.us/img822/8122/beforeaftersa.jpg
I need several head shots of middle aged men and women (dark hair only), taken slightly from the above, to illustrate hair loss. Ideally at least two different photos per person, preferably on a plain background.
Can anyone help? I’m sorry for this poor quality scan, but that’s the best i can provide to exactly describe what i need.
Fantastic. Thanks a lot for implementing this.
It’s just too early to jump on board the HTML5 train.
I do agree, partly, but it is a double-sided sword. Once more and more sites begin to utilize HTML5 , users will want to switch to browsers that support it naturally (at least that’s the ideal situation). I remember observing a kind of revolution happening in the agencies, when about a year or two ago people started saying “no, we simply don’t support IE6 any more, [reasons here]). IE6 is almost a non-existing thing right now, but well.. it took 10 years to get rid of it, still? Anyway, i think that mentality of users evolved, and they (customers and laymen) are more eager to upgrade their software. They did it once, noticed the improvement, won’t be that hard convince them again, IMHO .
Good one with the buttons. I like that they are more consistent. Not so sure about links colours…
I would also suggest looking into support section design. After submitting a case, the whole thing looks a bit raw, needs some adjusting, in my humble opinion.
I thought i’ll start this thread to get some insight into what veteran and new authors, customers and Envato staff think about the future of themeforest marketplace. It is without a doubt that it’s really hot at the moment (reached 1 million members few days ago), but how long will it stay afloat and keep attracting new designers/developers? There are more and more themes and templates available and it’s inevitable that many will look similar. I’m saying this because many new designs get rejected just because of looking the same as existing ones, while being technically and style-wise really good. Are we reaching the point where it’s going to get noticeably more difficult to get new items approved, hence to get a lot of sales for new authors, and the only ones having constant, substantial revenue are going to be the existing elite members? I’m asking this from a perspective of a relatively fresh member of the community, comparing myself to the top twenty contributors for example.
The whole situation reminds me of some MMO games, where players who joined early will never ever be matched by new players, any time in the future. I couldn’t help but to notice this similarity. A pyramid scheme of a kind?
Maybe i am being to drastic, but what are your thoughts on the subject? If you are an established author, do you feel the breath of newbies on your back, or not? If you have joined recently, what are your fears, expectations, do you have any long or short term plans? Do you have any ideas how the TF business model could be improved for mutual benefit? Speak up.
