I am not very familiar with the admin templates section. Would like to see what others have to say. I like the subtle shadows here, and the good use of material design.
The admin templates currently are brimming with flatness.
Looks pretty good to me. What reason did they mention?
The hexagon images look odd. Change the background, maybe. Also, I would change the font in the menu items. Other than that, it looks good.
This was a soft-reject?
I think I see the point.
The issue being “aesthetic and technical requirements”. I submitted it as a blog and magazine theme. I am guessing it’s technically not a magazine theme – just a blog.
Also, the first part of the email said, “cannot be resubmitted” and the second para says “will need to be improved before being resubmitted”
Some feedback would be great!http://ncrafts.net/white-space/preview
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?
