I understand what you mean MoeHaydar. I am also 9h behind, and in the beginning, as an author, was strange, then you just get used to it. You just have to remember it And the most important thing to remember: Withdrawal time limit arrives earlier , a lot of people forget this!
For statistics purposes, it’s a bit strange also. For example, I have the most number of sales at 4AM (Envato time). Well… that’s a strange hour to have a lot of sales… but in the US, this 4AM mean it’s like 1PM from the day before, or something like that.
When we are selling stuff worldwide we need a reference timezone. After we get used to it, it’s ok, but I understand it can be strange.
Yes, this would be great. For example, something on the Withdrawal page, like choosing to Withdrawal money from our earnings to a charity cause, each month could be something different. I would give a few dollars each month for sure.
I have around 5-8 support requests a day, so I can handle them easily and fast when I’m online – most of them are pre-purchase questions or easy CSS fixes.
I always have a codecanyon tab open and email tab open, so as soon as I get a new request/question, I try to handle it right away if I’m online.
Usually I can answer everything in less than 24h unless it’s weekend or I’m traveling.
But I guess for authors with a bigger bigger volume of support requests this aproach wouldn’t work…
I am working on a new project where I am using code that is only PHP 5.3+ compatible.
5.3 is available since November 2009, but I wonder if there are many servers still running on 5.2.
I searched the envato docs and guidelines, but it doesn’t specify anything related to this issue. And on the plugin page we can only specify WordPress version compatibility, not PHP version.
WordPress itself only needs 5.2.4+, apparently.
Do you think it’s safe to program for 5.3+? What’s your experience?
Hi DigitalBuilder! Welcome to the forums!
This has been a well debated topic, almost every week someone starts a thread with a similar suggestions.Check out some of them:
And an official thread by envato staff:http://codecanyon.net/forums/thread/new-features-the-starting-point-for-ratings/95607
Hopefully they will hear us out
I think filtering search by date (first release and last update) is very important for a buyer…
First release +1
Last update, nope.
Why? Well last update doesn’t always mean an item is abandoned, it could just mean the item is now currently stable. I find that the update rate of all my items slows down from release, as initial bugs are discovered, fixed, new features etc. It gets to a point where I would consider the item stable, and from then the updates become major releases, once every two months depending on the item, once every 4 months.I’d hate to think people were missing my items because of mistaking freshness of update, against stability of item.
I agree with TommusRhodus. If ‘sort by last update’ was available, it would only make authors make small insignificant updates all the time just to be on top of the list.
I agree also with cooledition idea: sort items by most sales with a date range makes sense. But I guess in the end they would be similar results anyway.
