Preprocessors save time, but I would only use them for bigger projects. For small projects, creating more directories, compiling files, organising stuff – probably not worth the effort.
I have tried using Bootstrap in over a dozen projects – themes, SaaS, plugins, others. More often than not, I would end up writing a lot of code on top of BS simply to negate some of its CSS.
Bootstrap is am amazing project, but I wouldn’t use it in 99 / 100 projects I do.
Using CSS preprocessors is irrelevant, since you should be compiling it before launching the plugin. It makes no difference to the end user.
Having a forum would not prevent users from posting comments with the item.
A good topic. I am in the same boat. I have been using comments and Envato forms till now, but it is time to move on.
I think making the forum open, and allowing only registered users to participate is a good idea. Brings in search traffic.
1. Do people really help each other? I don’t see that happening in the comments
2. Is it really good to have a forum? Lots of theme companies shut down their forums and moved to ticketing systems.
How many emails do you get?
I got 79 emails today.
28 were notifications / useless
32 were from Envato – new support emails, or follow-ups, and some enquiries
19 were from my freemium SaaS project – mostly support
I sell about 12 licenses on CC in a day, and have about 6k registered users for SaaS (out of which, 20% are active users)
So, about 40 – 50 support or enquiry emails. Is it too much?
I make and sell software
Anyone have idea about general living expanses in Thailand/indonasia/India/Dubai/Vietnam
I am not aware about Vietnam, but Indian is the cheapest among the rest, but also has a low living standard. It is possible to make ends meet with $500, but, like everywhere else, it will be a hard life.
Dubai is a nice place to visit, but, aside from the tourism, somehow seems to lack a life of its own.
I agree with VF that this is our first meetup in India and we had chosen Hyderabad place for this meetup.
Travel magazine ranks Hyderabad second best place to see in 2015
Hyderabad is the second best place in the world that one should see in 2015, according to an international travel publication.The Presidio of San Francisco in the US ranked first on the ‘Best of the World — 20 Places You Should See in 2015’ list, published in the annual guide of ‘Traveler’ magazine of the National Geographic.
Yep. Not trying to sabotage the Hyderabad meetup
Was curious to know how many peeps we have from Bangalore. Was thinking about setting up an un-official group over at meetup.com. I’ll see if I can fly in for the Hyd meet.
Anybody interested in a Bangalore meetup?
