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.

This is strange. The month started with good sales, but suddenly no sales in the last 3 days. I didn’t experienced this problem in almost 2 years.

...or can be the coming Christmas season? Who knows :)

Also, Woothemes continued giving lifetime updates and support to customers who purchased before they changed their contracts. Would you do that?

I would continue providing updates, and all the authors here since that won’t change, only limited support when the author of an specific theme decide opt in. Remember this task is related to provide paid support only. The buyers will continue access the files and updates.

Regards

I will jump into the conversation


3) Not all developers price themselves like you. There are many honest developers who don’t include yearly renewal charges because there was never one in the first place. They cannot change their contract
Changes are common. As example WooThemes changed prices at some point and explained why: http://www.woothemes.com/2013/08/a-sustainable-woothemes/


1) there are various types and sizes of authors here, and different types and needs of buyers as well. Your concerns (that themes are maintained for at least 2 years and it could be some obscure theme) is different than mine.
You’re right about the different needs and Themeforest authors do a great job by providing different kind of solutions (themes/templates)


3) Not all authors are able have a large support team.
+1 yes, many authors work alone or do partnership with other authors but support is provided by a single person. That is my situation actually :)

By the way, I’m one of those authors that complained about the coming support update. I agree in a few points but I disagree in general.

Now, what I recently realized (it was a DUUUUUUUUUUUUH momet) is that people can only use one license for a site (which has a purpose, say folio), so everything else gets thrown away as it is now rendered useless.

Yes, that is something I’m sure it happens: users buy a multi themes item paying just once but using the same item multiple times. Scary for authors? SURE!

2) @ait : Is that another excuse to push the prices up? :)
No, that’s a reason for company not to go bust. $55 is a price of lunch/dinner for 2 in many countries, you cannot really survive from this amount of money Lifetime :)
:p excuses
Its a little sad to see such a regular buyer treating an authors claims of what I consider to be”living expenses” an “excuse”. People have to eat you know, gees.

Personally I’m a little puzzled why would someone buy a theme that has multiple demos, since it’s limited for a single usage only (99.5%) of time.

To use a regular license in multiple sites, this obviously is against the license terms. I don’t see other reason to buy a theme with multiple demos.
