I’ll have to agree that removing the author quiz will increase the number of low-quality items submitted, by authors that don’t speak english almost at all.
I totally agree.
Besides that, I must say that because Envato marketplace is an international market and the main language is English, every author who upload items here should know English at an acceptable level.
In this situation, I would write a comment on the product page. But it shouldn’t be in this format:
Don’t buy X Theme from X Author…... “
My experience with this product was:
- nice features
- etc some other positive feedback
Still I had some issues with it:
- code not looking good
- is not working with IE10 as described
- conflicts with plugin X
A feedback should be very specific and impersonal and the comment should describe exactly why you say that the product does not work as described….. Then, it will not be deleted from the comments section. And the customer are warned. Most probably in this case, the author will respond too.
You can’t create bundles, but you can create collections and promote them on your profile page for instance.
Thanks for sharing, really, I did not notice it. Do you know if there is a way I could receive an email on each WordPress version release? Could be really helpful….
EDIT: just noticed that WordPress 3.7 is not yet in the software list
Patient. Respectful. Correct.
Though, 2-3 of my buyers were impatient and they were unhappy with some features, but everything ended with “Thank you for your great support”.
I really think that every unhappy customer can be transformed into a happy customer (of course, if they are not another Envato author in disguise, with the purpose to harm you)
I would not risk a live demo for a CSS item neither.
Judging by the popular files from last week, for some authors sales are still high, despite financial issues in USA
