I second that. I’m pretty sure I read somewhere that Envato is working on new versions of the market places, they should definitely include this.

Can’t really see how it could hurt anyone, but as it has already been suggested, you should contact support or send a direct message to Jeffrey Way.

In my opinion, the smilies are horrible.

Great theme! Two things I would change, though:

  • Get rid of the unordered list dots in the sidebar by adding the CSS -attribute list-style and the value none. Maybe increase the line-height in the sidebar too.
  • Make a little space between the thumbnails and the video title in the “latest videos” section.

Keep up the great work!

That is really much, much better. Can’t think of any major flaws that the typography has right now.

I think he wants to write a post for AppStorm.

I’m not sure you can do that at all, but try making a pitch via. E-mail. If they like it, I’m sure they will let you guest post.

You’ve definitely made a lot of improvements but I still think there are a couple of issues:

  • You set word-spacing on body text. I thought the spacing before was a consequence of justified text. With word-spacing you get essentially the same problem: rivers of text and a very uniform text. Just let the browser take care of setting the default word spacing.
  • Missing hierarchy. You want to have a ladder of text sizes that you can mix, not just one. Try making the “Latest project”-text slightly bigger, and experiment with the inline introductions (the ones that are bold). Also try making the text in the footer smaller.

I may be a little tough here. You’re not doing everything wrong. I love the intro text in the header and the general layout. Keep up the good work!

I usually set my font sizes in ems, but you can use percentages too. In modern browsers you can’t really see the consequences of setting font sizes in pixels, but try resizing text in older browsers and you’ll see what I mean when I say that it’s best to use ems or percentages.

For a really great introduction to typography in general and typography on the web in particular have a look at the Typography section in Mark Boulton’s book “A Practical Guide to Designing for the Web”. It just came out a couple of days ago, and I would really recommend it to everybody.

Wow. There are a number of issues with the typography:

  • The text is too big I seriously can’t imagine how this would look on smaller resolutions or on browsers without text antialiasing. Default text size (16pt) is fine if there is not much text, but when the pages are filled with text like this, it’s not very pretty to look at.
  • The line height is too big Generally on the web, don’t go above 1.5. I would suggest going down to 1.3 or around that level
  • Justified text Just don’t use it on the web. You can’t predict how text will wrap or divide a word over multiple lines. This will create spaces between words that are WAY too big, and rivers that will distract the readers.

Overall, nice site! But it needs some work on the typography.
