Sorry to be that guy but why tell us the day the funded are due? I presume that evanto have known about this for some time and could have allowed those affected time to make alternative arrangements.

Also any indication to which authors are getting a delayed payment?

I appreciate the apology, but surely contacting each author as soon as evanto knew about the issue would have been more fitting.

I hate frameworks.. I code everything up from scratch.. It takes me less time.. :D

+1 I find ‘rolling’ my own CSS a lot quicker than a framework. Less bloat, and as I wrote the class names / ids, I think it easier to debug.

Frameworks are a great starting tool though.

Well done Mike! :) I’ve been on TF 6 months, & GR a while before that, I’m about to take the jump into full-time on here now, any advice from a year long veteran? :)

Thank you! :)

My advice would be to always go with your gut, make the best products you can, and listen to the buyers. If it wasn’t for the buyers asking / suggesting things to add / change in my themes, I don’t think I would have made it this far!

Also remember the community, its packed full of super helpful people!

Congrats Mike! My first item was released on the 8th Januar of 2011 so it’s about two years for me

Thank you! Really? Only 2 years? I thought you were like the oracle of TF. :)

I must say your tools for authors have been super helpful in my first year!

Hey Guys,

I have officially been on ThemeForest for one year! My first theme Notes got accepted a year today! :)

I did intended on writing something a bit more in depth (More like a review) later on, but I just wanted to say thank you to every single person who has bought, commented, or shown off one of my themes.

I never intended to get that involved in creating themes, I started doing them as something to keep me busy whilst waiting for freelance work. A year later and I am working on them full time.

I just wanted to say a big thank you to ThemeForest and the other Evanto communities, as you are blooming awesome.

Mike

I live in England where things are pretty expensive, my rent is about $2418.30 a month. I live with my girlfriend, yeah we follow the 30% rules, just saving to buy a house in the next 6 months.

+1. We rent a 3 bedroom house that is around £650 / $995 (aud) a month, before a single bill is paid. It is great at the moment, but we shall be moving to our own (smaller) place hopefully next year. Just have to wait to have two years accounts. :(
