I’m not saying it’s fair or clever, but whatever he’s doing CURRENTLY doesn’t violates any T&C. Onsite, he doesn’t hints anything. It’s a normal item for the traffic from here. That’s why Envato is silent over this. To stop it, they’ll have to change the current T&C. And include that you can’t offer any perks on any other sites as well (which Envato has no control over).
You’re right. I dislike this “marketing” method but the author is enough smart to not violate the T&C.
If this practice is still allowed in near future, we will end giving our work for free to compete.
Keep up the good work!
Which theme are we talking about? Themeforest already removed the reference of the item; I appreciate if somebody send me a PM with the name, just curious about the topic.
Keep up the great work
Thanks guys for sharing your suggestions!
btw, designing my own t-shirt and pay the print services sounds like a cool alternative
Hi Envato community,
Did you buy geek t-shirts like the one with HTML5, CSS3 logo, and other similar? If so, which online store do you recommend?
I appreciate your comments.
Today a user who bought one of my templates contact me asking for my details (name and address mainly) due he received an invoice with my username. I suggested email to firstname.lastname@example.org for help.
If Envato will handle this docs, why they put my Envato account details in the invoice? They should not do that, not even my username.
Some buyers still ask for refunds to authors because they don’t know that is handled by Envato, how do you plan to explain to the buyers how the platform works?
I did have the opportunity of going into Envato HQ yesterday. And after talking with some people face to face, I’m reassured that Envato want whats best for the community.
I noticed that the people suddenly become happy after a phone call with Collis or talked face to face with the staff. What authors and Envato people say in those conversations? I’m just curious – would be awesome if that same talk could be posted in the public forum, so everybody would share that same feeling
In my opinion, people can get angry/mad/etc because the recent changes and lack of communication become a massive misunderstanding. Changes in this market are not a game, we as authors make a living from this business and we just request clear answers.
ps. The new font anti-aliasing on the marketplace hurts my eyes, can we go back to how it was before?
