My thoughts about this “new thing” were in this post yesterday – http://themeforest.net/forums/thread/screenshot-button-gone/178076

But as I can see today, the Envato Team has roamed through the thread and deleted that post without an answer.

Such class… Making a huge plunder and their best response to this is by smothering authors voices. Good job on the PR.

Hello, Bridgette!

I am afraid I have some rather bad news.

First of all, you need to look what is causing your page load time to be so high. It took 1 minute and 28 seconds for me to load the page, because of icon_05.png. Here is a picture of the load time:

Load time

Secondly, you have errors on page and a lot of them. Have a look at this picture:

\\

The homepage slider didn’t load at all – even after 5 minutes it was still loading…

If you get these things right, then we can talk about the design aspect, which needs to have many improvements before Themeforest accepts the theme for sale. If you have any questions, I would be glad to answer them.

All the best,<br/> Kris” />

You are wasting your time and money on a solution that will make everything worse and you are happy about that. Lose the ratings, work on some proper support tools and sell yearly license/support packages, like it should be done.

Why would you lose the ratings? A crap item of an author is a crap and deserves to have a less than 4 star ratings, unless the author wants to hide his crap to the eyes of the public. Looking at the bigger picture, ratings still serves its purpose.

Excluding support tools, this could be done in a week, month tops. After that everything would be much simpler for both parties(authors/buyers).

Like you know what you are talking about. Maybe a prototype could take a week (I know some prototypes that could even take a month(s) to implement). This marketplace has millions of users not hundreds of thousands. You should take great considerations on scalability, speed, cost, and efficiency. Not to mentions the business models and terms that comes along with the new features and this is just the tip of the iceberg. I don’t even know how did you came up with weeks. You made it sound like it’s very easy.

Anyways, I got a feeling that this feature will be implemented soon and that Envato is just gathering data with regards to pricing, timeline, and other things. I really hope they implement this properly and that buyers can understand the limitation of “support”.

Cheers :)

Lose the ratings as they are right now, I should have been more specific. Amazon’s rating system is pretty nice and if Envato had something similar, then by all means, let’s have a rating system. :)

How I got my timeframes? When we exclude support tools, then we are left with ratings and licensing. It can’t take more than a week to remove everything rating related and double check it. If the code is properly written, then it wouldn’t be anything too hard. About the yearly license – this only means rewriting some things in the licenses section. I am sorry, but I can’t think of more than a month for those jobs.

This has been somewhat a rant and I apologize, because this post is already off-topic, but I wanted to clarify myself.

Have a great weekend!
Kris

Hi All,

It’s almost 6pm in Melbourne so we’re going to sign off for the weekend. We’ll be collating all your feedback from the weekend and responding to any new questions about pricing and timelines on Monday.

Thanks again, and have a great weekend.

Andrew

That’s just wrong. You are ignoring what everybody is saying and doing your thing. Instead, you could focus on what the community wants and at last do something about the whole rating/support situation.

Can someone give us an answer why we are ignored?

Timeline + Prices seem fine… but why are you wasting your time and effort doing something that nobody wants?

Do the things which community has asked for a long time:
  • Get rid of ratings or make them public
  • Introduce paid updates, not paid support – this doesn’t even make any sense!

This way both parties are happy and you can still get your money if you want.

Hey Logan,

I’m a bit confused about the rejection message. The design seems to be really nice and Envato doesn’t have many these kind of designs.

The only thing I can think of, are the logos and the usage of the name Quartz. These could be the reason for a rejection. You should use unique names and not include well-known company logos.

I would also contact the support team and ask for some clarification via this form – https://help.market.envato.com/hc/en-us/requests/new?ticket_form_id=37840

Best regards,
Kris

or, you can search in TF after GPL, and select to show just the WordPress themes: http://themeforest.net/category/wordpress?term=gpl

Unfortunately, this doesn’t work. It only finds a couple of themes, which have mentioned the term “GPL” in their description.
