Actually I am done on all those threads. Already said everything I had to say. Now better use the 3 months left to prepare for the worse if it still happens after all the talks.
I haven’t got a regular job for 2+ years, that is because I don’t like to work a specific 40 hours/week or to have people constantly tell me what to do or check my work progress (project manager, bug report, daily work report, agile meetings and so on).
If Envato wants, it can transform this into a corporate company where every author is more like an employee, however I do believe many authors are here because of the freedom. Bottom line, it’s easier to answer to a few people ( project manager, team lead… ) than to answer hundreds of people.
jayc said...... not allowing them to comment is very damaging ….
Hello, I could not read all 600+ comments, I apologize ….. Regards
Currently, users can keep asking for support even after the 6 months period as long as they have a purchased badge it’s all good.I suppose not much will change from how things are running now but if we must speculate they might introduce more badges to indicate if users support has run out. In which case you tell them to get a support package, just as you would expect the user to have purchased the item when asking for help in your comments section.
Telling a buyer that you’ll answer only if he pays for support is very damaging as well, if you already answer questions why someone pay for support anyway. Not to mention that no matter what answer I would replay, I’m already loosing time.
I do not provide support for my items, even so people ask questions as I would , 99.9% of the problems are caused by third party items, however I’m also losing time identifying the source of the problem.
I could not read all 600+ comments, I apologize if the following question has been previously posted.
After six months, a buyer who does not pay for support will be able to post comments for a specific item? (most of the comments are questions about the item and an author could not decline answer because the buyer simply did not pay for support, while others did).
Haha, I just checked out AD after 4+ months, I used to sell here , looking at popular files it feels so sad.
You are like three years + late, check out Code Canyon.
Man, I’ve never seen such ugly icons , ever.
If you’ve been working so much for this plugin, I think you should release a basic version as GPL on WP.org, and sell the pro version on your own with a lot more, like $150-$250, than again I wouldn’t know the best option.
Sales picked up for me (not 100%), today dropped again, ah I wish this will be fixed soon.
