I’d say this is a bad move and has not been thought through by Enavto.
So in an attempt to fix the rare situation where a buyer mistakingly gives a rating of 1 star, the system has been completely opened, creating a situation where a buyer, who is angry that you won’t bend over backwards (again) and help make the latest change requested by their client, can use the ratings as a device to get revenge on authors (who are not required to give support in the first place)!
IMO it would make more sense to allow 1 single change only of the rating system, to allow for the correction of a mistake rating, and that this rating, if lower then the first one, is required to be accompanied by an explanation / feedback / reason for change – which is sent anonymously to the author.
This would obviously still be open to abuse, but in a limited way compared to this new system.
zendesk for ticketing system and vbulletin for forums.
forum registration only allowed for buyers, we wrote a small plugin to check purchase code against Envato API .
zendesk is unvaluable for us, handling all mails from envato and our site and reditecting support request to forum while still being able to answer presale and freelance questions by just replying to ticket.
Also, since we are a team, it allows us to receive each other mails without messing with bcc.
about vbulletin, nothing to add except is by far the best forum software you can find.
To give for free = distributing the theme to people who will use it without paying
that’s simply not the case here.
MelforDMThemes saidIt’s not free distribution if he’s not going to use the theme for anything else that making his plugin compatible.
Free distribution is not allowed afaik
Both items would still be sold here, both authors could benefit so why should Envato have something against it ?
why it shouldn’t ? great feature btw.
Thank you all for your proposals.
We have found our guy. This thread can be closed now.
Thanks to all who have replied. We’re reviewing the proposals and getting back to everyone slowly. But keep them coming…
Due to ongoing freelance work as well as development of new templates and WP plugins we are struggling to find time to also push our Wordpress themes.
Because of this we are searching for a talented Wordpress theme developer to help out in this department. These themes (1 to start with) would obviously be submitted to Themeforest and hence the developer’s work would need to be of a suitably high standard. To ensure that this standard can be met, the developer would ideally have either done this kind of ghost development for others here on Themeforest or have a Wordpress portfolio of their own. We are developers ourselves and sticklers for clean code and adherence to Wordpress best practices and would expect the same from the chosen developer.
The template which we require converted to a WP theme is our Brandspace template (see our portfolio). As compensation for this work, there are 3 options, ranked in order of our preference.
- A fixed one time fee.
- A one time fee + sales percentage (for a fixed time).
- A sales percentage.
If this is something you might be interested in, take a look at the template and contact us via our PROFILE PAGE (ignore autoresponder) with a proposal and mention your required rate for each of the above 3 options, which would allow you to take on the work.

||+460208|duotive @bitfade – everything here is viewed as a “feature” even google fonts integration so excuse the term.i didn’t explain myself: speaking of a template, googlefonts can be in there or not, same as canvas, audio or video tags.
HTML5 template means nothing functionally, it just validates against that spec and one could use HTML4 or XHTML prefix in the very same way.
