Not yet, but Mozambique and Zanzibar are on my bucket list… probably the safest places to travel to on the East Coast.

I live in South Africa and have traveled most of the country, but I have also traveled to Namibia, Botswana, Swaziland and Zimbabwe. Which part of Africa you travelling to?

I don’t want to opt-out of support (who want’s that nasty badge saying we don’t support our items – when in reality “why wouldn’t we”)... but give us the option to opt-out of the extended option.

If Envato won’t give us the option to opt out of extended support, and it’s not something an author is comfortable with, then they should just opt out of support, but still provide support in the comments as usual. This way the author has more control and freedom. Although the item may say “this item is unsupported”, I’m pretty sure buyers will look at the feedback in the comments before making a decision to purchase. If the item rating is good, reviews are good, comments section is active by the author, then honestly I don’t see opting out of support as such a bad thing. Sure you might lose some potential sales, but you also gain a lot more control and freedom, I guess it depends what is more valuable to the author.

Oh nice did I win something? Thanks Envato :)

I think we should keep the yay thread and that other one with all the funny gifs.. these two are the only reason why I check the forums, also “what I do on my dashboard 99% of the time” is to good to delete.

This support policy to enforce authors to provide support for a cheap price and limit time, sounds more like a way to reduce the number of active designers/developer selling themes; since the market is saturated. Is just a guess (call me crazy – lol) That is my conspiration theory about this Envato’s update. What’s yours? xD

I think Envato wants to take a bigger slice of the pie. You can see with the support pricing structure its modeled around the top end priced items like multiple purpose themes (because its not really feasible for authors of lower priced items). Envato takes 30% from these top end sellers, but obviously they noticed the huge aftermarket support going on behind the scenes, they just seen the success with Envato Studio, and then a light bulb went off and paid support is happening.

this is an EPIC FAIL in the making. virtually nobody wants it. Famous quote “If it’s not broken, don’t fix it”

whether good idea or not, I think this will correct itself in due time – Envato is assuming this is what buyers want, and its going to work for authors, but ultimately the market will decide.

usually you’d put the late payment terms on the quotation.. so the client will be aware of the late payment charges – otherwise they might be surprised when you tell them they owe you more :D also invoices should be paid with in 30 days – unless otherwise stated, if not paid in 30 days then 10% added every month until payment is made. But all of this should be on the quotation in the fine print, which they must agree to prior to proceeding with the job.

Envato Studio has been locked down to prevent market saturation – should the same be done for Themeforest?

It’s interesting they did that on Envato Studio but not on Envato Market – would make sense!
