@pollyplummer – probably not WP themes as they would require ongoing support/updates

All products require updates and support… while I agree that there is more demand for support with WP themes, there is still support to be given and updates to email templates (and HTML, Landing Pages etc etc) – could you possibly elaborate a little more on this reasoning?

@nutzumi surely this is related to the thread no? Am I missing something else? But yes this should be made sticky so authors are aware of the alterations to their files pricing.

I’ve gotta be honest bud, you’re a little younger looking than I thought you would be ;)

I see you altered the dates – originally you posted from 4-7 feb.

Any chance that now that all the boxes have a border radius we can throw-in some css to make item images round cornered also? It’s the little things like this that just irk me ;)

Also all sidebars throughout the site seem to go from narrow to insanely wide – earnings page for example vs forums.

+1 @PassionThemes – seems logical to do it this way

I will say it seems like you guys really are proud of your microlancer colors…. :/

GR was also blue, PD was blue-ish.

Agreed but this is ThemeForest, and also these are microlancer colors, maybe a non-subtle way of possibly trying to get the banner advertisement to appear to match possibly – at least it looks that way. ;)

Gonna hold back from my initial thoughts.

I will say please go thru things today and align all the things. Also check elements are actually using the correct colors, right now for instance the heading background color in the sidebar on forums is fine, but look at the search icon button background, it’s darker still. Also you really cannot tell when you hover pagination here in the footer, goes from white background to barely noticeable slightly not white background but no hover color on the actual number so you can’t even tell.

I also disagree with the statement on branding colors for each marketplace – I think I see where we are heading, but no doubt if I’m correct that could be years away.

I really hope things start to come together – right now it all looks a mess tbh as we’ve got flat, 3d and old and all the colors.

If you are looking to eventually put this as responsive you really need to look at spacing also throughout – such as pagination buttons will be a nightmare being that close to each other etc.

I will say it seems like you guys really are proud of your microlancer colors…. :/

so now i see the best method is ” Display Metaboxes According to the Current Post Format ” if i need to add more options for any format, but if i need to add new post types example [ slider, LightBox and SoundCloud or other ] what should i do if i depend on this default post formats ?
Yes ! That’s the great idea in fact..integrate custom metaboxes with post format..that’s good and reliable way.
And what if customer decided to change the theme? all values defined in non-standard custom fields will not be available for the new theme.

+1 don’t use custom meta boxes.

Here’s my list fwiw:

  • Improve things – don’t just change them.
  • Regain the trust of your users (both buyers and authors)
  • Stop trying to cross promote everything, it looks all google up in here
  • Focus on quality, not just quantity
  • Go back to being an approachable company, not a corporation
  • Get this site up to basic standards of 2014 – that’s a huge list
  • Make better decisions as a CEO in whom you put power
  • Listen to your users
  • Act quicker on some ideas
  • Act slower on other ideas
  • Stop breaking the sites functions and just improve them
  • Get this community back together by creating a more level playing field for all addressing exposure concerns by redeveloping the site to become more search orientated rather than posters of new and best selling only
  • Encourage updates to items by either adding focus on updates or reducing focus on new / best sellers – right now there is NO incentive for authors to make massive updates to files
  • This list could go on for ever
  • Stop making lists and start action
  • You’re not reading this anymore are you?

All the very best in your transition Collis, sorry it came to you having to come back down the ladder, but in all honesty it’s your puppy, your decisions that got us here, and your decisions will set the future – with great power comes great responsibility as they say, and the CEO is ultimately responsible for steering the ship.
