phpdude saidNot at all! In fact, these things greatly annoy these guys and as soon as it’s too much of a hassle, they’ll quit.
and trying to trick warez sites is impossible.
I respectfully disagree. These are the same people who nullify much larger commercial scripts. so they have the know-how to get around it.
Agreed, this is a deterrent and will put people off, but there’s always a way around it.
Not bad, but if you only allow your site, what about all those legit sites that use the Envato API and autopost to WordPress and add their referral username?
Stopping only bad sites is decent enough, but this won’t stop those kind of people, so example stuff like annoym.to.
I like your thinking, but nothing is foolproof and trying to trick warez sites is impossible.
Just a thought.
I 100 % agree with you, although we can only educate inexperienced freelances who may fall for these types of projects, and even then I think we would be surprised of how many people would actually still do it anyway.
Personally, I think portfolios speak volumes, and may be for some freelancers this is the only way to start building their portfolio. They may be thinking “If I don’t get this job, at least I have something to add to my portfolio”
Just a thought
A bit late to the party here, but isn’t this item exactly what you are after?
BTW : It’s not my script…
You guys are not reading my text. I said, it could be option if you want it.. Like a checkbox “Make this item have Unique option”.
They essentially said it’s a nice thought but completely pointless because, why would I want to purchase a pre-designed item for a bespoke price? when I could paid a bespoke price and get a bespoke item? Unique has no benefit over Freelance and Freelance has loads of benefits over Unique.If I was going to spend $4000 on a suit, I wouldn’t just wander into the tailors and pull one off the peg. I would have it tailored to fit me perfectly and only me.
Very well put Network Savvy, that’s exactly what my point was trying to get at.
@EFEKT_Studio I think it’s a good idea, but simply wouldn’t be beneficial to most the items on the marketplace here.
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
phpdude saidYes, but there is a huge difference between freelance and envato marketplace.
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’
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.

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.
