In my opinion the only option now is to go back to the previous gray layout, you can’t fix this this one, is too bad.

With the “new white layout” + “the new badges” this marketplace honestly now looks a little bit more like a marketplace for amateurs and not a marketplace for professionals.

Thank you for the answer Damir, i think that a white background can really improve the experience and our sales but the problem in my opinion is how this update has been realized. I mean, there are parts of the marketplace that look really bad and there are also flaws.

I created these screenshots, so you can see exactly what i mean: ( please open them at full size, i used IE 11 to take these screenshots and as you can see the font rendering is awful and the overall layout looks really bad )

Please revert back in few hours/days, this update is embarrassing.

You have so many resources, i just don’t understand how you can come out with this mediocre design.

Thank you WebSmacker for supporting my theory, mine is that with the new badges we ( authors ) look a little bit more like amateurs than professionals and this decreases the perceived value of our products and as a consequence the overall value of the marketplace.

The same “decreased perceived value of our products” effect was achieved in the past when the item ratings were exposed and not hidden under the “more information” trigger.

I’m not sure what this post means. Are you trying to say that, when the new badges were introduced, your sales dropped?

Yes, i was trying to say that the popularity drop of themeforest, the popularity drop of codecanyon and the drop of my sales started on the August 21, exactly when the new badges were released.

A little guy that lives inside an svg can really do this? CodeCanyon has the same graph, and I have the same graph with my sales.

PGP encryption is a great option for text files, I use GPGTools for Mac but there are also Linux (GPA) and Windows (Gpg4Win) alternatives available. You’re able to set a password and sign the encryption, so only you will be able to decrypt the information. It’s easy to use, very secure, and can be used to encrypt sensitive text data of any kind (not just passwords). :)

Thank you very much, i’m starting reading documentation about gnupg to understand how does it work.

What I need is a tool that allows me to encrypt and retrieve passwords, basically my idea is to store my passwords in a text document, what i need is something similar to md5 but that allows me to retrieve the exact stored passwords with a master-key/word.

I found some database manager online but what i need is a simple program or a command line tool that allows me to generate encrypted password and store them in a simple text document, i mean that i don’t want to store the password in the database of the password manager but manually in simple text files.

Do you know if a similar program exists in windows or linux?

Thank you.

Can I use gif as a item thumbnail for my items? Do them work as animated gif or as a static gif inside the marketplace? If yes, can you link me some example? My idea is obviously to increase the CTR on my items. Thank you.
