I would like to reiterate that we absolutely and genuinely care about the experience you all have with the Marketplaces – we too want them to be the best they can be and we’re working to deliver that – it’s in our best interests as well!
Jordan, pretty much all authors are just “mad” about the current rating system and you’ve been told that for years. It makes no difference for Envato because, as somebody else already pointed out, if a buyer skip a theme rated 3-4, he’ll probably buy another one rated 5. But it’s a huge problem for each individual author.

The worst thing that can happen after working months on an item is not getting poor sales, it’s getting a one star rating early which will destroy item reputation and most likely kills its sales. Do you know what it means to hold your breath until you reach 3 ratings and you can finally your new item stars ? We do and i can assure it’s not nice. Even after that, until you get a decent amount of ratings, you’re still each buyer b..ch to avoid the damn 1 star rating but, now matter how much you work your a.s for free, it can still happen.

We asked and asked and asked again to change this madness but in vain. We keep being told Envato listen to us, if that’s true then do something about it because nice words and generic promises have no effect on (most) of us anymore.

Should be tested to see what wp_upload_dir() exactly returns on a sub blog.
it returns sub blog correct values (blogs.dir), that i can assure.

Yes, is what I do in my function I guess… because when you get the image url in a sub blog, the url returned is passed through rewrite rules, so it needs to be modified to point to the real sub blog uploads folder on server, otherwise scripts like timthumb fail.
I was suggesting to use something like
$ud = wp_upload_dir();
$file = str_replace($ud["baseurl"],$ud["basedir"],$url);
didn’t test at all but wp_upload_dir() would always provide right values whether multisite is enabled or not.

not sure if i got the problem but wouldn’t be simpler to just strip upload url from image and prepend upload dir to obtain file path ?

He means the URL posted by a buyer which points to his online page where he has installed the item he has just bought and is having a problem with. At the link the item’s unprotected sources are available for someone to take. As I’m sure you can understand, this is not such a nice thing to have in your file comments area.

The pixelentity team is seeking a part time support staff member to join our team.

We are a 2-man team who are full time authors here on the Envato marketplaces. As our number of items for sale increase we are spending more and more time providing support to our buyers and less time creating new stuff. Consequently we are looking for someone to help out in our support forum in order to ease the load on us and allow us to concentrate more on development. This person would be working with buyers who have bought anything from our portfolio, which includes the following types of items:

  1. HTML5 Templates,
  2. WordPress Themes,
  3. jQuery Plugins and
  4. WordPress Plugins.


Support would be given via our external support forum, where a moderator role would be assigned. We would still be putting some time into support, especially in the comments area of our files, so the successful person would not be working alone. We are based in Central European Time (GMT +1) and though being located near this timezone would be good, it is not essential.

Requirements

The right person will have all of the following:
  1. A good knowledge of PHP , Wordpress, Js, jQuery, CSS and HTML
  2. The patience of a saint and the ability to keep a cool head.
  3. A good command of the English language
  4. Experience of providing support for similar products


Hours

Initially we will be looking for someone for an average of 1-2 hours / day , during business days (Mon-Fri). We say an average because some days when there are no support queries, while other days there will be many. This daily requirement will very likely increase over time as our portfolio increases in size, so the right person would need to be open to increase this time commitment in the future.

Interested Applicants

If you are interested in applying for this role, please get in touch with us via our profile page. Include the following:

  1. A brief description of yourself,
  2. Details of your experience,
  3. Any relevant links,
  4. Your expected monthly salary for this position


Regards,
