Yes, by the looks of that picture it’s probably a 50mm 1.8. I owned a 50mm 1.4 and that created more blur that than, basically when I took a picture of a face straight on the nose would be in focus and the rest would start to blur.

Have a search on Flickr for photos taken with a 50mm 1.4

I’ve had this on one or two occasions, so I always ensure they’re a genuine buyer before asking for post-support.

However saying that, I am very polite and subtle about it because on a few occasions people do buy using a different account and then submit a question via another (for example a developer asking for support from their account when using an item purchased via their client). I kind of play it dumb like “Oh, for some reason it says you haven’t bought the item yet?” or “I can’t seem to locate your purchase history for that item” etc.

tl;dr Be vigilant, but be subtle, as people often buy with another account and request support from another and are still genuine buyers

Why not just get a Dropbox plugin and put the files in Dropbox and organise via folders on there?

On another note, to display PDFs in browser I highly recommend PDF.js which is what Mozilla use in Firefox to display PDFs and it’s awesome.

Opinions. User’s are entitled to their opinion and people’s standards are different. One persons 5 star is another’s 3 star. I think contacting the buyer to asking about ratings has zero benefit for the buyer and is a purely selfish and ego driven motive; what will the buyer benefit from you e-mailing, apart from taking up their time? If it were a 1 star and a comment implied they didn’t understand or see the full potential of the item, then fair enough, but it isn’t the case here.

It’s also a way back to get on the product page or codecanyon. I personally use it like that many times. —Edited Typo

I concur, I do the same just to go back to the item description.

Here in England we have a small claims court. You fill out a form online and pay something like £20 or £40 and prove they owe you money, and then the client will get a court summons. By proving they owe you money this can be done via emails agreeing to the cost or a signed specification. Again, here in England an email acknowledging charges is a legal acceptance of the work and therefore considered a contract.

Now, this is how it works in England, I’m not sure if this is the case in the rest of the UK, but given that you’re in Europe I’d think that there would be something similar where you are.

In the interim I suggest you write a detailed account of correspondence between you and the client and provide email proof and send it to Paypal. If you’re acting on behalf of a company make sure you that state this and show that your history with Paypal is decent and fraud free and that for the past X years you’ve been consistent with your Paypal transactions.

I’m not sure how helpful I’m being here, but hopefully it’ll point you in the right direction. Also, if all else fails and you lose the money make sure you check you local laws before exposing the client and it could be deemed slander.

Wish you the best buddy :)

“I’m sorry, but I can’t promise you that I’ll be good for nothing.”

I like it, saved as an email draft for future use! Cheers for sharing

When referring to bandwidth, the conversion is actually factors of 1000 rather than 1024 – http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_device_bandwidths#Conventions

What you’ve done is fine, building a site so it builds your referrals, but advertising it on here is a poor move. I think Envato were correct to remove the link, after all, why would they want you to take traffic away from them?

My piece of advice would be to get your own user base, advertise the site elsewhere, and bring new traffic to the marketplace, rather than trying to poach the existing user base. :)
