Also, in the blog post, a request has been made to strip our items descriptions/docs/ of any information regarding free support as to accommodate these new changes.

Yet the first 6 months are free under this new rule – correct? Therefore stating this in your documentation would help enforce the time frame that Envato are placing on free support therefore why remove it.

All this is just silly and Envato are stepping in to territory they shouldn’t even be getting involved in. Leave it to the seller (author) and the buyer to arrange extended support and stay out of something that the marketplace isn’t built for.

Item > Documentation > Support:
“If you have any questions… Never mind… Officially I may not help you, however, you might want to visit the support page of my website… Can’t give you the URL directly… Do you know how to use Google?”

What happens when an author offers support but chooses not to sell support packs (because it’s a bad idea)? Are we going to see a giant red warning instead?

THIS ITEM IS NOT SUPPORTED

We do notice the giant boot Envato is raising over our toes.
Unfortunately yes – in previous discussions staff said there is no opt-out of extended support offer if you choose to support, you would have to opt-out of support.
Seriously!? Good grief…..
For reals, official response here
So basically, it’ll say we don’t support – if we don’t do it Envato’s way?

Sure seems that way. That certainly leaves a bad taste in your mouth right!?

My new item was opted out by default – which is fine by me as I don’t want the responsive view but does seem contrary to the official post.

Also +1 for entire portfolio switch.

This is what I see on the latest version of Chrome. You sure your viewport is not zoomed in?

Nevermind… I got confused looking at your screenshot of a screenshot :)

As an author, I truly understand your pessimism for such a situation as it might backfire against us, but IF the definition of support is made clear, and Envato stands behind it and its authors, I’m fairly certain buyers will not push toward this situations and even if they will they will face the consequences for their actions.
Yes, I believe that it will be done right. I also like the idea (it’s an additional income after all :D ), I just want Envato to do it right.

It’s only an additional income if it’s purchased, and that’s after the 6 months of mandatory support which is not charged for.

We will all be lucky to sell a single one that’s why I am doing the same as many others and not offering this here but rather on my own site, with my own terms and my own price. After all, with the changes made previously these are now my direct buyers and as such I will deal with them directly.

Why would they include in core? That doesn’t really make sense. I proposed it would become a module in Jetpack but the lead of Jetpack told me today that will also not happen.

Time will tell I guess.
