Maybe they are giving the $3 from their end? idk, but i’d like to know more :)
I don’t think so.
What are we doing here is, (Be a WordPress Theme, or a Landing Page Template) , “Those items are really, really so easy to produce, so we’re really ok with any profit we can make from them”. Why am I writing all of this , We all are just an employee of McDonalds.

The official reasoning when I asked is available here:

Basically, Envato decided that we don’t have as much support as other categories… I have no reply to this, I did, but I decided to move in more positive directions :)

I never saw any discount items before, (there was also a thread about giving discounts to attract customers, which was pretty neutral i guess)...

No Envato are not reducing their commission with this promotion – they will keep their standard percentage and so will you, meaning that because Envato want to have a sale with your work you and they will both earn less.

Not your choice unfortunately, as already stated in other threads they have full right to alter product prices at anytime – they could sell it for $3 (or $30) and there is nothing you can do.

@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 ;)

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…. :/
