The good thing is we had a promise to get an official reply “later this week”, so it can’t be much longer now.. Can it? :)

In last months staff promises reply about many important concerns (VAT and item support, specially), but after weeks and weeks they just replied about a few concerns with no clear answers, even knowing those topics are really high priority right now.

What can we expect from this topic…? more promises. I feel disappointed of such attitute :(

My main thought about set high prices and different category for multi themes that include indeed tons of different themes (not variation, THEMES!!) is to avoid give our work for free. I mean, 60+ themes for less than 60 USD??? Please authors, have some respect for your own time, work and skills.

Yes, we will be changing the background color to white (#FFFFFF) on the 11th of December. But we are also writing a whole post about it because this change will affect the item pages, and we know that some of you need a heads-up. The images used in some of our authors’ item descriptions and profiles often rely on (or try to match) our existing grey background.

I didn’t read the whole thread but in the start post only talks about background color update. Now that the update is live I see font sizes changed too. This ugly result is very disappointing coming from a company that pushes us to create products with very strict design guidelines.

I mean, are you kidding me?

Increasing the font size it’s a good move for accesibility

I don’t like the new font-size but agree about this point.

White color is nice but… the reading process just make me tired, if feels like too much light. I’m not joking.

My first impression is:

Unfortunately your “Visual Update: Changing to a White Background” isn’t quite ready for ThemeForest and requires significant improvements and changes before it can be resubmitted and reconsidered.

Every day, all the supermarkets in the world sell products which are manufactured/made by someone else. And we by from them, not from the manufacturers. The supermarkets are the sellers, not the manufacturers.

Great example! Very clear.


The problem with this kind of topics is that they’re not sticky and the Envato staff couldn’t care less about them, we all know who the real seller is, we just want an official reply from Envato.

This topic should be sticky and the staff should provide official answers.

Btw, did you noticed the amount of sticky topics? Many of them are not high priority. IMO seems to be there just to crowd the forum.

Based on how the money flows Envato is the seller [buyer pay to envato > envato pays to the author a % of the sale]

Is really annoying how the staff is ignoring the forum, they provide a few replies but that is not working, the answers needs to be clear; why they do this? I may think because there is no money in the forum :(

^ yep was always commission

Good one!

I just traveled in my time machine to go to Themeforest.net in 2011 when I signed up:

New authors begin at the 50% level and as sales volume adds up, so does the commission percentage. That means the more you sell, the more you earn!

See you guys! Time to travel to the future to see how this mess would ends :D

Again, you refuse to even look at what Envato Help says about buying a license to an item. To change that, is to change the terms of sales :) Cheers.
Then please sue Envato :)
This has nothing to do with Envato now, but Authors who wants to have subcription updates :)

lol. Everybody wants free lifetime service. What a joke :)

And, no one is forcing you to sell here :) If you don’t like the terms, leave

That is disrespectful and make no sense. Authors can decide sell or not here, we already know that :) Authors and buyers need to work together, let’s not make this a fight. We can do a healthy discussion.

Remember that the coming paid support rule is not an authors decition. We would only decide opt-in or opt-out, at some point everybody would opt-in to have a fair competition, many people think the same.
