Maybe you should quit everything you are doing now and make a community-wide site-wide poll on how confident authors are in Envato’s work. I am sure the results will be disastrous for you. Ah, sigh. I am done really. Signing off…
We are working on something like this with our Elite community (http://themeforest.net/forums/thread/envato-elite-community/185227). We’re close to 100 members now, once we reach a good number, we’ll start organising polls and present results to Envato.

Count me in as well.

Whoa, whoa, hold on a second there! Are you actually telling us that WE need to be the ones who are going to tell the customers that they need to purchase a support pack, every time support expires? Do you have any idea what sort of problems this will create for us authors?

You are putting all this responsibility on our shoulders solely, and not really doing anything except from a few very, very minor things, and then taking 30% on top of it for every purchased support pack. What you are doing really is just taking 30% for the transaction. You have no built-in tools for us or any other sort of tool or help from your side that would justify such a large fee. That is ludicrous.

This is not a community anymore. It’s more like Envato vs Authors because you never listen to us. And it actually goes even further than that; you are regularly showing to us that you don’t give jack squat about our opinions.

Maybe you should quit everything you are doing now and make a community-wide site-wide poll on how confident authors are in Envato’s work. I am sure the results will be disastrous for you.

Ah, sigh. I am done really. Signing off…

This was long one, huh? :)

Definitely the longest one I’ve ever seen since I joined ThemeForest. I think it lasted around 3 hours, if not even more.

Yep, I too am having these issues. Today ThemeForest was extremely slow for me at times.

Hey there,

What about the new “live preview” link currently used for thumbnails being incorporated into the main preview image on the item page when the image is moused over?

Example…

Best,

Chris

Hmmm, I like the sound of that. Good idea, Chris.

+1 for the original idea. I wanted to remove one of my oldest items for quite a while now, but didn’t want to face the repercussions that come with it, so the item is still available on the market.

This is a really good idea, but an even better one is paid updates. As for now, I don’t have any incentives whatsoever to keep updating the mentioned theme, and paid updates would certainly solve that.

Paid updates equals more quality, up-to-date, non-abandoned products and happier users. Make it happen.

I voiced my oppinion in a seperate thread. I’m very unsatisfied with the new feature. It’s completely senseless. I am a 4 year member with 100+ purchases on Envato over time.

As a customer I believe getting to the Live-preview is 100x as important as to go and see the screenshots. Perhaps on your other markets it would make more sense to link to screenshots (graphicriver), but for themes it’s very important that I can go test out the preview, see if there are issues, what functionality the theme has etc. Stuff that I can’t do in a screenshotgallery.

Anyways. Now is see the preview image is completely unclickable. Your “Share” buttons are not 100% aligned. There is either 1-2px space missing in the bottom border or top border depending if viewed from Chrome/firefox.

I don’t see the point of the share buttons taking up 1/3 of the space under the preview image. I understand ‘promoting envato’ and all. But I believe are better ways the implement some social sharing tools than right in the center of the page. Statistically, how often do these even get used? 1 in a 1000 visitors? Other than the author and friends of the author?

Anyways, would like to see the Live-preview link getting back in the preview image as before. I think this is of relevant importance for the THEMEforest market.

Without customers, any marketplace in the planet would be totally useless.
Fellow Envato Staff, please listen to your customers.

And not just any customer, but one that obviously knows what he is talking about.

Hey Stephen,

can you please confirm that two of my products which I have updated in the last few days are now off your list of “offending” themes.

Thank you!

Hey Onioneye,

Both are marked as updated.

Cheers, Stephen

Thanks, Stephen!

I just noticed this while trying to recommend the plugin to one of my customers. Why did they withdraw it from the plugin repository?
