same with wikipedia
I have a lot of admiration for the folks who are able to do Envato full time. I’m curious though how their local economy comes into play here. I mean, if an author is living in a country where the average national income is $300 per month then, yeah, you can easily make a living doing the full time Envato author thing. But other more economically advanced nations in Europe, North America, Australia, etc., have a much higher income level to satisfy before they can call themselves “full timers”. It’s not exactly a level playing field.
ditto on that – I recently moved to Australia where my envato earnings don’t compare to my day job. Before i moved however it was roughly the same.
@Firsh – that looks awesome. Id love to see more of that – rather than templates which rely on images for impact.
I think this is a great idea and definitely worth pursuing despite the obvious real world issues. The biggest issue would be quantifying ‘support’ and if or not the question was answered effectively. Rather than work on a basis of of questions and answers – how about answering the question with an actual working file.
So rather than asking – ‘how do i change the font here’ say ‘i need the font of this content area changed to arial’? Maybe the buyer could see the modified file as a preview before he accepts the transfers of credits to the author? And only get the modified source file after that?
That would be similar to the current model of business anyway so would probably not bee too complicated to implement.
Ask yourself : would you place more emphasis on 1.wowing your visitors on their first visit to your website or 2.having them return numerous times to use your services. If you choose 1 go with Flash – 2 go with HTMLWhy would you not return to a site thats wowed you? If a site doesn’t wow me then I likely wont go back…
Well FWA sites are a good example actually – ‘site of the day’ is in fact exactly what its called – a site for a day – you wouldn’t return to any of them more than a couple of times – weeks later.
Actually a great design and skills in animations with jquery tend to blur the boundaries a bit – and an HTML website can pack just as much punch as a flash site. Ask yourself : would you place more emphasis on 1.wowing your visitors on their first visit to your website or 2.having them return numerous times to use your services.

you’ve just got the January blues
Happy birthday kramz! how does being born so close to Christmas work? do you get one BIG present instead of two?
I’ve just started my first major project using AS3 – before this id done all my work in AS2 and although it may seem annoyingly complicated i think in the long run it’ll be worthwhile. (I hope!!)
The major pain i had to get over was still thinking in AS2 but writing the code in AS3 ! I have a sneaky suspicion that if you’re starting off with no knowledge of AS2 you might find it easier to adapt.
Is someone kind enough to spend me one of his Templates? Or could he make me one? Or something like that?LOLZ
