maybe to have a seperate section on the front page for each category?, so each category is getting its own exposure and not mixed, i dont really agree with the packs to be honest as it means someone has to buy a full pack at a higher price for just 1 single item that they may want, good for the seller but not really good for the buyer in my opinion
no you can only do 1 thing at a time, usually very quick unless its a huge file, what are your system specs and size of file you are working on?
Richie Hawtin and Dubfire, Oliver Koletszki, Jamie Jones and any other house/tech house, tehno and minimal
there is a long wait for items to be accepted, prepare to wait a few weeks before anything gets accepted/rejected
Maybe a more strict author test would help the ques or a practical test from the review department, i would imagine the review ques are full of work from people who have no experience in design at all, people who have used photoshop for about a week and think they have what it takes but really the work they produce is nowhere near good enough to be here in a number of ways, ending in rejection after rejection. These people cause delays to the designers who make a living from here and have experience of the design process.
Not meaning to sound harsh
It good to see other moving through the marketplaces, this year i want to actively earn more money so need to be more serious in my design adventures. it really is hard to find time how do you all do it.
18 hour days, 7 days a week developing our first theme for themeforest and hopefully get my work accepted here, already in codecanyon and have stuff in the que for audiojungle.
Depends how much work you can do yourself, if I was to rewind back a few years and do what you want to do on basic WordPress knowledge I could see you spending $100-$200 on a theme and a few plugins, nowadays I would custom make most of it
I would personally build it myself so I know how it works, how I can make it better and for the general experience! Depends how WP literate you are
To be honest, you could break this website down to a basic WordPress theme with a few plugins. The file submission side of things (the most complex part I can invision) could be handled by our Author Submit Plugin: http://codecanyon.net/item/author-submit-file-wordpress-submission-plugin/3771346
Building a whole new system for a site like this could start getting costly, working with a few premium plugins and a decent theme will cost you a lot less and allow you to customize to your hearts content
