Hey Tricycle,

Congratulations to you!

ps. Did your profile not show an Irish flag before? I ask because, as I remembered it, you were one of the few other Irish authors on here, apart from me ;) .

I have some question on this..

as a BUYER : what happens to my custom work (code) when I make an update using this script?

thanks ;)

Modifications of template files will be overwritten/lost unless you make your modifications by using a child theme, in which case they will remain.

I didn’t ever meet a reviewer in person but i doubt they have a range of knobs on their backs, one for each category, which allow quality level to be raised/lowered at will.

The amount of submissions is too damn high, lower quality item (as in both design/coding) and copycats will be approved no matter what.

This wouldn’t this bad if broken themes would be soft disabled and blatant rips removed at light speed but, unfortunately, that’s not the case.

Right now, envato doesn’t seem to have enough human resource to deal with a 2 millions users base, support just takes too much to answer/react and the fact a DMCA must be sent before killing copycats make the situation even worse.

Interesting. One question. If i buy one of my themes to test it out, will it work? Or will it work with our own details?
It won’t work with your own details because you’re not a buyer of your own themes so either purchase from a different account or ask a buyer to create a temporary api key for you.

Keys can now be deleted so it wouldn’t be like giving out envato account details.

@PixelBook .. there is a line which you if uncomment, it’ll work as a test. Check the class file and you’ll see the line which needs to be uncommented for debugging.
He would still need buyer api key to test, that debug line only make sure the update code gets called on each page reload. Only way is to ask a buyer for it or purchase own item from another account.

@duotive fixed link is in post 4

Later edit: This works perfectly fine! But not on Multisite..
That’s odd, i don’t see why it shouldn’t. Thanks for the feedback, we’ll take a look.

One of our themes was featured. Now it’s off the homepage. Guys, I can assure you that homepage gives you MASSIVE sales increase.
A featured item now gets 1 month of home exposure which is an insane amount compared to 1-2 days of newly approved items. Why not having 1 feat per day instead, with seven spots each item would be granted 1 week

Honestly, i don’t think themeforest can be kept clean anymore by only relying on reviewers / quality bar raises. Not with the increasing amount of items submitted each day.

Reviewers do an amazing job but this cannot prevent a lot of stuff from being approved to only sell little to nothing. Early exposure is crucial and we need better automated ways to manage it.

I really don’t get why any author should be against it. He gets the job, you get the sale, everybody win.

I use the ratings as a guide when I buy from the lesser known authors.
exactly the reason why such “clever marketing” exists in the first place. Yet another thread about the current rating system with authors asking for changes that will never happen.
