Mandatory support? I like giving support, but making it mandatory is just pushing the author.
I would opt-out if possible.
I think the middle ground would be an Opt-in / Opt-out for authors. And if an author wishes to opt-in, the author should be given priority if he has an Envato Studio account.
I wouldn’t mind if the Install button directly links to the theme author’s Envato Studio profile.
That way I can make some extra bucks.
Agree to everything you said, and I don’t think $50 installation fee on a $50 WordPress theme would look good.
I thought Envato was going to take actions against these authors?
Last time I checked, you guys published a statement that these authors will be punished heavily.
Like I always say, Avada disagrees
