And I was wondering whole morning what’s wrong with my eyes
I’ve just filled the form and I’m 3 weeks before my vacation so it’s good timing
minti said+1 Only reasonable with small modification
For us, this easy solution would work best:
1) Buy item with support (get all updates and can ask questions)
2) Buy item without support (get all updates but can’t ask questions)I think the 6 month time limited support just confuses everyone.
1) Buy item with premium support (get all updates and help to solve more complex problems)
2) Buy item with basic support (get all updates and fix issues/bugs caused by theme)
purethemes saidI’ve forwarded them on to our product guys and while they won’t be reversing or tweaking the change at this stage (given it’s an experiment and we want to see how it goes first), they’ll definitely take them into consideration for future iterations as well as related projects such as buyer education and sustainable item support.
natman saidWhat about concerns raised by rest of us?
I’ve just had a quick chat with our legal team about the concerns raised by UK Themes and others.
Thanks, If I have your attention already could you please clarify how the process actually works? Who install the themes, does it go to selected providers from Envato Studio?
The truth is, all of them.
I have not given anyone apart from the person who purchased the item to have access to a theme.
These people are having our theme for free whilst profiting from our work.
We actually offer installation and customisations, and now some profits will be lost on our own themes.
Installation services exists for a long time on Envato Studio https://studio.envato.com/explore/wordpress-installation – it’s nothing new. If someone buys your theme, why shouldn’t he be allowed to pay someone else to install that theme?. However the person who installs it for a fee is not allowed to keep that theme and use it in any way. (But the reality might be different as we know)
Does anyone went through the process after clicking this ‘Install Theme’? I wonder if there’s a list of people who offer this service or it is invisible for user and just goes to queue for selected providers. Who actually is doing the installation?
Guys, keep clicking ’ REQUEST STAFF REPLY’ on first post, maybe someone from Envato will come to clear this up.
+1 to that. And I really don’t like the new idea of locking threads like that by default. Shows the attitude to us as authors.
