From the Forum Rules:
Because of the commercial nature of the Envato networks, authors are expected to understand and respect the fact that using the forum to post links to one’s own items, or to give away free files to the community, is not allowed. This practice effectively undercuts the hard work of all authors who wish to sell their items fairly, and as such it is not tolerated.
I’m just curious as I have seen many reported and told not to do this maybe the rules changed would love to know.
I thought we were not allowed to self promote ourselves in the forums? Did I miss something?
Hey @Massix – just wanted to let you know that I understand 100% what you are saying and basically agree with you – just wanted to let you know you are wasting your time looking for support – it’s just proven way things happen around here.
I wanted to let you know that you are not alone in your thoughts and observations – many authors here see the same thing, have tried to say something, got silenced by the “troops” and then either just don’t post anymore or don’t upload products and have moved on.
ThemeForest was a great place – still could be – but your concerns are echoed by many silent voices my friend.
Actually I disagree – I have hosting of different levels at a few hosting companies – and ALWAYS the issues with security are Media Temple – I got all my sites hacked a year ago and they blamed my password – which was 10 characters long and had numbers characters and letters – it was rock solid and not stored anywhere and no access apart from me – then a few months ago they had a major breach of customer information – do NOT believe the hype – they are all glitter and gold and when it comes down to it the service is also terrible (unless you use the phone) ticketing takes DAYS – my other host I have been with for 8 years – have 4 servers from shared – reseller – VPS and Dedicated – NEVER a single issue.

Contact support if you haven’t already guys with details on OS and browser versions etc – will be quicker than simply posting about it in the forums where it may not be read by the correct people.
the plugins folder is within the wp-content folder on your server – it’s there by default. Use an ftp program to go to your site – then the directory of your wordpress install (if not root) and then wp-content / plugins – drop the wp-pagenavi in there.
To encourage higher caliber designers please provide a pay rate you are willing to fluctuate dependent on the skill level – also it may prove beneficial to give examples of the standard of work you are looking for – an idea on project time – how many and what rights you would like etc – you mention a NDA so I presume that there is a structure behind the projects plus you mention a broken schedule right now so again I presume there are more details you could share to help encourage applicants.
Also reporting that previous respondents have little or no skill may come across as slightly less than professional.
Maybe post an average hourly rate or if you are not interested in hourly rates show an example and explain more in detail what is required so that designers can work out if their rates are too high for you etc on a project basis.
