Oh really ?

If I’ll start to create projects, following the most popular tutorials – in 2 months I’ll become an Elite Author!

sounds like a plan

at the moment I like these two:

Italian Pasta, San Marzano tomato, Buffalo mozzarella, fillets of salted anchovies, extra virgin olive oil cold pressed (important other types of oils are not good), fresh basil leaves, salt and pepper

and

Parmigiano Reggiano, pears, lettuce, black olives, yellow pepper, Walnuts, fresh lemon juice, extra virgin olive oil cold pressed, salt and pepper

there are pretty easy to make and are awesome

hope to reach that elite status in a few months but man no vegemite form me till the 250.000 mark :( this is my reward for being lazy for years

why? the care pack is still at the 125.000 mark. You actually get now more, as that milestone now also includes $250 envato studio credit.

I will be two weeks too early for that, so be happy about being lazy. You made $250 with it.

I hope I get an extra tim-tam for that!

was under impression that you got the vegemite and tshirt and the rest when hitting elite at 75.000. when this has changed?

made a mistake on previous post, wanted to write 125.000$ :)

  • that search bar button is bigger than an item thumbnail and the search bar section is too big
  • Put “new items section” under the big search area
  • then “new items from people I follow” section
  • then “featured by staff”

Now is a very static page. Those featured items will have a new item added once a week

That means we will see pretty much the same items for more than 2 months!

Not an improvement, very poor concept. You can do better people. You have a great job at a great company, what about investing a bit more research in designing the front page the biggest most important thing that this website have?

I’m harsh but I’m not an envato employ, I don’t have to be careful with stepping on some boss ideas. We need some truth here.

How is new items less important than featured items? The new item section show a big strong point of envato marketplaces.

Fresh new items and ideas baked every day!

This is a strong selling point for envato yet someone thought, and then the the rest of the team approved, that is better to place at the top a bar with items that don’t change for months?

This is not good design and usability.

Also, that grid of items is ugly, it was ugly before and now is worse

Please develop a system where exposure is a factor of item complexity and price.

Item is 3$? get him a thumbnail of 80×80px and a couple of hours of exposure. Item is 60$? Get him a bigger thumbnail and at maximum homepage coverage as possible, days even a week.

Now new items are just at the bottom of the page with a cluster of low priced items plus a search page results that is not developed yet and gives very approximate results and with no powerful filtering.

I’m working a week, a month, six months for an item and I’m rewarded by less exposure as possible? Is not fair and also is not logical for my interests and for envato interests.

needs a bit of work on animation make it more smooth

if you want to go with dark mood style then you need better lighting.

here is an example I’ve made using the same type of walls environment as in your project
