digitalscience saidFair enough feedback, although the rewards are there to provide authors with inspiration to build amazing things!
Before we send authors into outer-space.. I think Envato should spend more money on a complete redesign of the entire marketplace so it’s as good as it can be and sustainable for the next 10 years. For a multimillion dollar company, you should have a marketplace design that reflects that – but it has the same layout since it started . The site isn’t even responsive yet, come on!
Inspiration to build amazing things? After $5 milion you get a MacBook ? I think that someone who earned $5 milion has already a MacBook if they want one… I liked the previous rewards better. I am glad I have passed the $500k mark just few days before the new rewards were anounced.
P.S The website look very good
Hi, I am currently thinking of switching my shared servers for a dedicated server to improve the preview performance and page load. Which one do you think is the best for WordPress themes? Also is it really worth the money? I see that bluehost and synthesis is pretty good.
Please share your experience.
P.S Maybe a VPS would do the trick?
Hello, here are my 2 cents. I haven’t read all the comments but I get the idea and I also agree. As DS said this is about money for the value. For me the only solution is to increase the price on the Multi-purpose themes (on those that deserve it). We have joined the trend of multi-purpose giant themes but I would prefer to make simple specific themes.
Multi-purpose themes are a nightmare, a lot of work to make them, pain to support them and develop further but this is how the market looks nowadays.
In few months we will probably see a trend of “buy one and get one free” or “buy now and get one feature request for free”. The truth is authors are competing to give more and more for the same value…
Hi, for the past year we have been using: GoDaddy (the worst of all), HostGator (almost as bad as GoDaddy), MT (performance worst then on BlueHost for 1/4 of the price + the admin panel is terrible), BlueHost we still use this for some projects & SiteGround currently our number one (pretty good for such money.
