No one knows what hard reject means. They just ignore everybody and support in this company doesn’t exist. I made 3 email templates and 2 html templates, every hard rejected. I do not try to guess what I should fix and just change it and sell as individual project for some client.
Totally wrong nd demotivational comment. Try to improve your item’s quality rather than blaming the reviewers. You quit after 3 rejections only !!!!! I got accepted my last te,plate after 8 rejections. The rejections are only for your improvements. Read the item submission guidelines and submit your items then.

This guys has the right attitude!

I suggest going to similar news sites (not necessarily themes) and take particular note of how much content they have in view at any given time – your page seems so full of content to the point where it creates a bit of a claustrophobic effect.

I’d also reccomend ditching the smallest column content as things like the ‘recent post’ tile has titles that are only a few words long – how would this work for a longer (more realistic) post title?

I find the criteria for ‘trending’ a little confusing still (yes I read the article). For example, one of our latest items has had over 300 sales and 15 five star reviews in just over 2 weeks and it is not considered trending? I would have thought this would be the very definition of trending!

Could anyone shed some light?

This would be a VERY VERY BAD idea, authors from low-paid countries will start selling themes for $10 and will ruin the whole marketplace

+1 Given the vast range of economic circumstances of the authors, its best that a balance be struck and pricing remain consistent. You could argue that all the items are under-valued but that’s another discussion..

Authors – I think we need to come up with an outline of what would be feasible that we can all agree on, and present it to Envato – with so many voices and different ideas, it’s difficult to weigh what we want as a whole. The main thing for me would be “choice”.. such as opting-out or deciding what type of services we would offer, since it would our “time” at stake.

Hopefully this will become evident with the results of the survey, providing Envato ask the right questions. I think the main concerns have been summarised well a few times so provided this is taken into account when writing the sruvey – it should indicate the direction that the authors feel is right.

How about deploying a survey to all authors similar to how you did for the item details background colour change? That way you could better gauge the feelings of the community.
Please read the Read the Full Post on the Market Blog. Surveys are mentioned there.

Thanks,

my mistake

I think this announcement was met with such disdain because the community feels like it has had no voice on this issue.

Offering 6 month mandatory support with 72 hour turn-around = less support requests? no, no, no.

All great points QBKL, well said!

What bothers me is that Envato is happy to deploy a long winded survey to authors about changing the background colour of the item details page, but changes on a much more larger scale such as this was done with no consultation of all authors. It smacks of ‘look how we are taking your points into consideration, we’re asking you about the background colour :) you valued author, you!’
