Love baba is back.. I think the current spam protection system just doesn’t work, something needs to be done! We also had passport guy over the weekend, they just won’t quit!

Well, while I mostly agree, there’s also another part – the new authors who get rejected and ask for a feedback, they wouldn’t be happy to get abandoned and if I was a newbie only making my first steps towards becoming a TF author, I’d be really frustrated to see there’s no chance to get a feedback from community.

And also, it’s clear that something should be done about those “love baba” solutions.

But then there is nothing stopping “love baba” from signing up as an author and continue to spam ;)

Lol. Envato Support is already taking 5-7 days to reply. Imagine what would happen if non authors and non buyers send emails to them, how much days it will them to get a reply?

True but non-authors and non-buyers are a small section of users, they have neither contributed anything to the market or are spending money, so it wouldn’t matter I don’t think if they have to wait longer to get a reply.

I guess.. but it’s like we’re offering a free service to help general members of the public to become authors – and there is a lot of people trying to become authors here. Envato should be more closed, and the forums only accessible to those who made the cut, so using the forums is more of an exclusive privilege.

The number of spam threads everyday is getting out of hand, and they keep doing it because the details they want to post are visible in the title even though the posts are removed. Another issue with spam is from non-authors trying to get approved and asking for feedback, and random users posting statements that break the rules.

So why are we giving non-buyers and non-authors a voice? Clearly they’re taking advantage of the system. Why not make the forum more closed so that only 1) Buyers who have deposited funds can post, or 2) Authors with at least one item approved can post. This way we will all be better protected from outsiders to Envato Market.

If anyone falls out side of those requirements and needs to find out something, then they can just use Envato support.

How do you know top themes haven’t been disabled though? Do you check them everyday? Maybe Avada did get disabled for a few hours. Or maybe Avada is the perfect theme and can’t do wrong :P .. I think lots of people have had the experience of being disabled, it’s rare but it happens. But what we really need is some sort of prior warning!

^ You can’t disable Avada.. Avada IS ThemeForest, might as well just shut down the whole home page :D But it is true what you say – all themes should be treated equal

Again i am asking for a valid argument, why taking 30% on support earning?

There is none, authors support was an untapped resource for Envato, they’ve just seen the success with Envato Studio and making money using human resources.. and obviously a light bulb went off and ‘paid support’ became something to push here ;)

I really don’t like it, we need to look at the bigger picture here, we already give away our hard work for nothing, a few dollars to each customer… it’s insane to even suggest we will bundle our support time on top of that, that makes us authors seem cheap, and the support packs is pretty much enslavement, as I seriously doubt they’ll match our freelance rates. The whole concept loses the freedoms of selling micro stock and will lead us all into a dark & dangerous customer support nightmare for a few extra bucks! :D
