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 :D

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.

And if I understand correctly, authors will no longer get any cut from 2$ fee that was added to final item price if buyer pays directly through PayPal? You’re breaking my balls, Envato!

Yes, that is the takeaway. Although, to make you feed good about yourself, you can now say that you only pay 12.5% author fee to Envato

Some people seem to forget that recently all prices of themes and templates were raised so even if you’ll don’t get your part from 2$ surcharge you’ll still earn more

Keeping things simple, increasing the price would reduce the sales, so it would benefit / harm Envato and authors equally.

By not giving us the surcharge anymore, it’s as simple as increasing Envato income by reducing our payouts.

People are so confused by the new fee rules, they are forgetting the anger over the mandatory-support issue. Well played, Envato ;)

Why not just offer two things to buyers: 1) same price = no support, and 2) higher price = with 6 months support. No mandatory stuff. Why impose support to authors who don’t want to? Just incentivise those who do give support.

The easiest solution. Also, if someone choses to opt-out, he can still sell support outside.

The new fee structure has no effect whatsoever, for the buyer or the authors (exclusive).

I’m starting to think this was an attempt to confuse the authors to get attention off the mandatory-support issue.
