I’m not sure this is a bug or no, but previous week i saw this theme http://themeforest.net/item/x-the-ultimate-wordpress-theme/5871901 has been Featured weekly item, but now theme removed from featured items. I’m confused now. :nerdy: why “X” is not in featured items page: http://themeforest.net/feature
I think this may have caused some controversy behind the scenes. Did an item that was already in the top 5 in weekly top sellers really need to be featured?
maybe 8-) but if one day this would happen to me, I’ll awfully angry :bigwink: khhhhh

Not real sure what’s going on with the home page, currently we have the featured author with only 1 file and that same file is also the current weekly featured…

@CodingJack Unfortunately the nature of the tests makes this kind of direct communication prohibitive. The intention of this announcement was to serve as upfront notification that these tests will be occurring, and of what to expect. As the price changes will not require any action on an author’s behalf, we intend to keep this process as unobtrusive as possible. If any concerns arise over a specific price change, please bring them to support.
Unfortunately there are lots of authors who advertise their items and say things like “Buy now for only $9!”, and will now have to check their portfolios every day to see if a price change occurred. That may not seem like a big deal to some, but to those with large portfolios, it’s a fairly large task.
I’m curious, do you do this with your items? If so, do you use the Envato API? If the displayed price information is pulled from the API, it will update automatically whenever any pricing changes occur.

I believe CodingJack was referring to graphical ads (google ads, buysellads etc) you can’t dynamically alter a price using an API on a graphical advert. Even if this was not what was meant by CodingJack, it does bring up a valid point however.

Thanks for the update Jordan. :) Anyway, I recently got 1-star rating among the 5-stars ratings for my latest item (you know the feeling). I went to the reviews tab and I could see the username of who rated that but there’s no review included. Do you have any idea why? :S

I have anonymous next to all my ratings.. can’t wait to be able to see these names and cross ref with the support center :evil:

What’s funny is the last one is 2 days old, for a landing page app template, and I know the exact person as they emailed asking why it will not install in WordPress.. 3 star rating! < – this is why we want to be able to reply once a comment is made to set the record straight or to get the rating removed.

It would be great if authors who experience price changes could get notified via email about the change.
or have the price changes an opt in thing, some authors live of Envato income and if a price swing in a item(either up or down) drastically changes the authors profits thats kinda of a big deal.

+1 – please ask my permission before altering the agreed pricing of any of my current items – thanks.

Jonathan

do you have some custom contract with envato about your item pricing?

I was under the impression that they can alter the prices how they want without author permission.

Nope I do not, however it’s common courtesy with a partnership to just not up and change prices on the other person without discussing first, and the fact that Envato have had a structure for pricing that I and my buyers are accustomed to would be looked upon as an agreement – they have a history of pricing and that would be the basis for an agreed pricing structure in the partnership.

I’m not asking for anything out-of-the-ordinary here – just some courtesy and you know, actually opening the doors for discussion rather than this heavy-handed approach – I don’t think that’s unfair to ask for at all.

Any good hosting company will transfer your site / WP and DB and make sure things are working for you for free – just ask them.

You will have to change the DNS settings for your domain at your registrar to the new hosting company, who again will supply the details needed for the name servers.

Hi again – yes we are still waiting for a reply – I have flagged your original post yet again… hopefully someone is hanging around not enjoying the sun and will reply :)

You will never stop people from sharing stuff they don’t want to pay for – concentrate on giving those that pay a better experience. Offering updates on a different website to that they purchased from and get messages from etc isn’t a good experience in my opinion. Offering updates on a different site will not stop this from happening I’m afraid, if they are determined they will work around things.
