so yes I updated over 20 themes last week but didn’t include that string (didn’t even notice it tbh). So I have to update all themes again now with that string or they will all be disabled?
My little project where I offer some of my images for free in hi-res:http://dreamypixel.com/gallery-of-free-photograhs-images/
5) it isn’t an Envato problem – try selling on Other marketplaces or on your own. The results might be even worse. Why? Because the market is indeed saturated and so called ‘Monster’ themes or theme frameworks are the norm now
We did, we also try on or site, which is current not really sale site And results were quite good, without any advertising and any big effort put into it. So yes there are other options and we are working on it. of course we will not leave ThemeForest for now, but to where this is going (new support policy, prices..) you just need to have other options open and ready.
Just look support, we will need to pay 30% to Envato so can offer support package, but we need to hire support staff, which we already have . Meantime Envato didn’t do anything to help us with support (like support forum at least). We only have comments, which can’t be used for real support purpose! This is just ridiculous..
I know of several high performing authors who have been here since the start as many of us have that are now making plans and are actively working towards moving off the marketplaces here in the next few months unfortunately, and I feel this is only the beginning.
This is sad, but true. You simply can’t work on market that doesn’t care about authors. Ok they care about few top selling
Sale has dropped at least 30% so we are also thinking about other options a lot.
Welcome aboard . What is the best way to contact you? We are still missing the $500 coupon for Envato studio for level 11 . Thanks.
You can check my portfolio also, we have one theme just for this particular niche .
I think it was 3 changes all together, and yes changes of the rating in this way are very annoying
Yeah I think most would agree on that. I had someone who was extorting me for extra support, changing the rating from 5 to 1 and then back to 5 and to 1 again. Until I got fed up with him and just left it at 1. I also reported him but Envato support said he is not breaking any rules. So yeah, that Theme now has 35 5 ratings and 1 rating with 1 .
So, yes, it needs an overhaul, not sure it will happen though.
Congratulations, a big achievement
