Seems fine to me, can’t see any white pages

On an unrelated note, I really wish sites didn’t open full screen like this, I don’t particularly want a site to completely fill up my 27” screen

Thinking about it from a buyers perspective would be a good idea. Personally, if I wanted a completely unique item. I would find an author who has a style I like and contact them through their profile for freelance work, and get it 100% custom and unique for myself. After all, everyone has a check box to say ‘Available for freelance’
Yes, but there is a huge difference between freelance and envato marketplace. ;)

There IS a difference between freelance and envato marketplace regarding regular and extended licenses. However there is no difference between freelance and a unique license, as they are both unique in the way that no one else would have it. Plus, with freelance you know you are going to get something that has been tailored to you, the unique license wouldn’t have this so there’s no advantages to the unique over freelance.

Sorry buddy

Some good ideas there Dadu.

Personally I like the idea of being able to set a release date for an item. For example, I could submit an item, then after it gets approved it would require me to either make it live now, or set a date for it to go live.

Then in theory, we could create a queue of items, which would mean at any given time one of our items would be on the homepage.

I kinda like your idea, but realistically it would only work on PSDs.

For example, a WP theme is roughly $35, and can easily break 500 sales in the first month, so 500×35 = $17,5000 (excluding Envato’s cut). Why would an author want to remove the item from the marketplace for just 30 times the item price?

The item would need to be so unique that there would be incentive to purchase a unique license, like a PSD , but not a PHP script as these can be easily reproduced as it comes down to logic.

The item would need to have personality to it that only the author would be able to reproduce. Fair enough WP themes are the same, but the unique price would need to be closer to 1000 times the price. (I’m not a Themeforest author – I’m simply working out basic maths)

personally, i am not thrilled with authors who celebrate 100 sales, or so. i didn’t post anything considering breaking earning limits or getting a new paw,and i will probably do that when i reach more than 10 000 dollars. that is ok, but till then ,no. if you ask me ,there should be a a special forum section for achievements of this kind . so, FELT _TIPS is right.

I disagree, respectfully of course. Different people have different goals, whether it be 100 sales or 10,000 sales, at the end of the day they have reached their target milestone and want to share their happiness regardless of how big/small it was.

Personally, I think if those types of topics were moved to another forum, no one would bother reading them. For example, when was the last time you viewed the item discussion, or site feedback forum?

I sent an email to Jeffrey a few days ago about it, as I was concerned about breaking the terms of these marketplaces and his response was:

Yes – it’s 100% allowed, so have at it!

My idea was to showcase the best new items, and write a little review based on each one. Of course I would add my referral code on to each link to the marketplace :) And I’d also promote my own items too

It’s a sound idea, the only thing that is putting me off from doing it myself right now, is getting it noticed and getting traffic to it.
