UPDATE:



...I’ll be answering questions…
That’ll be interesting.
Hi @clarecomm,
I think he was joking :D I posted a single question in the first page and still no answer:
This means a private forum support integrated with Envato?

Regards

Hi @Collis,

We appreciate sharing this new post in the forum, I’m particulary interested in some points:

About our direct seller vs comission:
Since our launch in 2006, our Market terms have been clear that the sites act as a platform for authors to sell directly to buyers.
I still understand based on how the money flows, we (authors) are not direct sellers, is a commision based since (at least) joined in late 2011.

About support:
Last year we announced that we are making this kind of interaction a first class part of the marketplace, and giving authors the tools to further monetize these kinds of interactions.
This means a private forum support integrated with Envato?

About the community
We think that facilitating connections between creators and customers creates a better outcome for everyone.
Totally agree. That is something I personally appreciate to you and the Envato staff: authors we care about develop items, Envato about attract buyers to the market.

In addition, I feel there is a big misunderstanding in the way the Envato staff communicate very important topics since past year, like VAT, paid support, pricing for multi-themes items (no multi-purpose!). The forum is a place to make a community worth, the replies from the right people are missing and are so delayed many times.

I still see a bright light in future, keep the good work guys!

Seems Envato doesn’t care about replying in the forum even if we use the “request staff reply” link, so I will post again my question from 6 days ago expecting a reply from the staff in charge again:


Hi @coolakshay,

Welcome to the community forum :)

Thanks for joining to the conversation, I requested a second Envato elite t-shirt before Dan left the company, after almost 3 months of waiting I still don’t receive. The shipping date is from 19/10/2014
Do you have any information about this?

I appreciate your help

Regards

Note: there is a mistake in my posted date. The correct shipping date confirmed by Dan is 29/10/2014.

Hi @JollyThemes,

Obviously was a mistake. The reviewer will approve it once he reads the PSD version was approved recently.

Good luck!

A quick way to resume all this situation is: the money goes first.

I understand why Envato feels confortable with this new “trend”, they keep getting money. Authors also keep getting money but the amount of development time increased for same “salary”.

Oh wait, I forgot we are the sellers! I want to have my voice heard and reflected in the item’s price [sarcasm].

Let’s start building multiple-themes for multi-purpose category :)

I don’t really have a problem with the bloated multi-purpose ‘god’ themes. If someone wants to make one that’s fine, it’s no sweat off my back. I do however have a problem with the pricing of such items.

Agree. Increasing pricing for those multi-themes items can make a more healthy market… at least.

Hi guys,

Did somebody read this post: http://marketblog.envato.com/news/thoughts-policies-tips-wordpress-authors/ ?
Basically we can expect nothing from the multi-themes complain, in the article they said:

As you all know we do not currently allow “bundling” and selling of multiple different WordPress themes as one item.
Really? Some approved items says the opposite.
In a general sense, we feel the idea of providing multiple demos to showcase this flexibility is quite simply good marketing practice.

So, would prices increase for those themes? The article answer that:
For commercial reasons, while we are happy to receive general feedback on pricing, we are not able to discuss specific price points, and pricing as a whole remains entirely Envato’s responsibility.

So, Envato. I guess we are the sellers [sarcasm] but we don’t have the chance to affect prices :(
