I’ve tried rubbing my eyes a couple times, the font’s still blurred.
Change the font.
Is there an easy way to locate the items that are licenced 100% GPL?
The only way I can see at the moment, is literally clicking through to every single item and looking at the licence options – not too easy.
Can we filter on them somewhere?
Kriesi has summarised it all perfectly.
1. Those theme’s are NO WHERE NEAR good enough for themeforest, and would have been rejected by any other author.
2. They are massively overpriced.
Really poor consistency in terms of equality for authors. As a regular buyer, I wouldn’t dream of buying those tired/dated/overpriced themes.
And why should people follow you on Twitter and Facebook? Shouldn’t the invite go to the person that has the best skills? It’s a shameless self-promotion.
It’s pathetic the way people keep creating ‘competitions’ and forcing people to follow them on social channels.
It’s not what the invitation system was designed for – it was to pass invites on to talent.
Sorry to put a downer on it, but in my honest opinion …
As someone who’s getting married in 6 months and would love to find and setup a terrific theme for it. Most (not quite all) of the wedding theme entries really feel like the First 15 Wedding Themes & Templates submitted, rather than 15 top quality themes that have been accepted into the marketplace because they were well considered and awesome.
Most of them feel really rushed and lack a unique style and high quality aesthetic.
Again, sorry, but this is how it feels – and I’m a hugely regular buyer.
Also, I have noticed that the buyers can change the ratings at any point of time. I feel the ratings should be locked once the item has been rated. You should never allow the user to change the ratings, once done.
I disagree. Sometimes I’ve bought an item, everything’s looked great – rated it highly – then somewhere down the line it turns out there are fundamental flaws in the theme/script that render it useless.
Boom! Rating changed.
“Great idea guys, based on your feedback we’re going to implement this asap!”
Said no-one at envato ever.
It’s pointless making these suggestions here, they don’t get implemented. Just look at the things like the abysmal search functionality – how many years has that been completely useless for? This kind of thread pops up once ever other week ..
P.S. There should be a 12 or 24 hour window for obtaining an automatic refund from the time you first download it.
This would get abused endlessly..- Ed
Just because you and Ed might abuse the system, does not mean the rest of us would. Yet, you believe we should all have to deal with substandard themes and have to wait for Support to refund after they “investigate”? What will they “investigate”? It’s right there in the comments of the theme from multiple users having issues. Also, it wouldn’t be an issue if “Envato” had screened the theme better in the first place, so my faith in Envato’s ability to “investigate” these issues is a little short.
There are ways to activate and lock down themes to help alleviate these issues, by the way. If I don’t have a “purchase”, you can lock down a theme to where it won’t work. This would keep people from potentially abusing the system, as it were. So, I’m just trying to point out that the current system leaves a lot to be desired. If Envato isn’t going to screen and keep the theme developers in line and the products Envato sells being 100% functional without the need to get support right after a purchase, because the features that are advertised are non-functional, then there needs to be a better refund / licensing / activation system.P.S. This isn’t Google+. That +1 won’t do anything.
