I believe he means it is like 99designs because there is no guarantee of any compensation for the effort a developer would put in. You say equity, what if the brand is a complete fail, the time that a developer puts in goes to waste.
Hey, if you post the link to your template/theme some author will have a look
Gareth we all get it that you want to be a mod here man but as I dont see any items by you, you probably dont get the frustration some authors feel whether its fair or unfair.
Definitely a nice effort, a few pointers
On first load home page slides take far too long to load, and on my screen the image of the girl on the first slide loads distorted, Im not sure why, I cant reproduce it again for whatever reason.
I would change the background of the footer to a darker color to add some contrast, and change the call to action “Want to say Hi or find out more?” background color to something more vibrant.
You should also minimize image sizes as much as possible, your smile-5.png is 250kb so I reckon the rest of your images are also very big in size. The slower the website loads the less likely you will get accepted.
I personally wouldnt use “Settings & Attributes” that you have on most pages displaying how certain blocks are set up, keep that for the help file, the intro file or a features page. Page previews are best if they only show how the page would look once it is set up.
Loading more portfolio posts again takes very long.
I think if you can make the whole theme function faster, you might get accepted.
Other then that there could be issues on the backend with your coding style or whatever, since you have been working for a year, I dont know how many new versions of WP have been out since then, what functions are obsolete etc.
Good luck and follow me on twitter Hasan
The thing is that Envatos’ competition is rapidly gaining ground. By this time next year it is highly unlikely envato will be enjoying the dominant position. So to be able to stay in the market and ahead of the curve these guys have to innovate, however like a corporation they are more focused on profits. Since survival will become harder and profits will become shorter, envato has probably realized they need to do something before the market gets too crowded and competition gets even stronger. To be able to mantain the dominant position they have to span out into smaller niches, which brings envato studio to life. However you cant [language removed] where you eat, so they will themselves damage their market as we can already see, and give away leverage to competition. Sucks for the authors at the moment, but long term, the more competition envato has the better it is for us authors.
I dont see why you thought it would be a good idea to move to a VPS if you yourself are not hosting wordpress theme demos, or other wordpress websites or any heavy CMS receiving large traffic. Most basic templates and websites, even WP would have run fine on a normal hosting for probably quarter of the cost.
you can call me captain hindsight.
thought id lighten this up a bit.
I got paid. I guess its on its way for everyone else. Good luck
Can you please explain if the payments were processed at your end why the withdrawal page is still saying “Currently processing withdrawals to be paid on September 15, 2014”
Hello Codeblvck.We only mark payments off in our system once we are able to check them against a payment receipt which PayPal provides. These days it typically takes quite some time to generate this receipt so the message generally remains for quite some time even though we’ve already uploaded all payments and funds have been deducted from Envato’s accounts.
Thanks for your reply
