funny how the interest raises instantly when you put up a decent budget.
Most threads like that end up in “we have a budget of $40 – $50 for that”.
At the end of the day buyers will look for different things:
- Some will look for simplicity and functionality.
- Some will look for mass features and options.
—> After realising they are priced the same, 95% of buyers will purchase the theme with mass features and options, regardless of how fast / simple the small niche theme is. They will go for value for money.
+1 with what CreativeKingdom has said.
There are so many people that want to make it to ThemeForest that it’s really hard to believe in the quality of your work without actually seeing a demo.
You may be an amazing talent, but without visual proof, let alone a profile avatar, you just look like every other guy who wants to be in the ThemeForest spotlight but cannot make it happen.
Please don’t take my message the wrong way – i am not trying to be rude or anything, but rather to provide some useful feedback.
You’ll find my contact form on my profile page if you want to send me a sample of your work – i will let you know if that would fit the ThemeForest HTML category in my opinion.
Have a nice week end!
It’s like eating a pizza that didn’t fit your taste, then wanting to “un-buy” the pizza.
Technically, envato issues refunds on specific occasions, but “didn’t fit my needs” will not lead you to a refund.
I guess you understand that once you downloaded a digital asset – there is no way to just “give it back”, so it’s understandable that a refund cannot be issued like when returning t-shirt in a clothing shop.
Maybe you can use it later for another project!
I am currently working with a partner on a WP version of one of my HTML template that had no problem being approved.
The WP theme got hard rejected on design standards, mentioning that the design requirements / expectations for WP are much higher than they are in HTML, due to the larger volume of competition.
I think you need to add many elements for the WP version (standard plugins / widgets styling, lots of different page templates / post formats, ...).
Good luck (to you and to us)!
Not sure if you are talking about the same user, but i just got a copy / paste of a bunch of cache errors on my MODX theme comment section.
The worst is because my theme was in the envato bundle i cannot tell if he is genuinely having an issue or just polluting the comments like you said..
Is this a good time to bring back this very first post from Kriesi?http://themeforest.net/forums/thread/how-long-do-items-sell/7257#59549
I guess your doubts / worries have been cleared by now, and reading this will give you a good trip back memory lane..
I literally JUST found out that you could see an author’s history of posts by hovering on their avatar and clicking on “recent posts” – this is awesome as you can really see how some people have had their life completely changed over a small stretch of time!
Well in Kriesi’s case it’s 8 years of hard work, so it definitely did not happen overnight – but finding this feature just gave me a chance to read my posts from only 1 year ago where i am about to give up, struggling with repeat hard rejections..
Have a read at some of your old own posts – it’s a pretty cool trip!
I wanted to jump in here to clarify that if you come across a rating that is clearly not constructive (eg. lorum ipsum text, or pasting in the ‘please describe’ text), please let us know by opening a support ticket. phpbits, I have found your ticket and removed the rating.
+1, that’s a good news
Ratings are private, and visible only to you and the buyer.
-1, that’s the bit that makes no sense. Most reviews are public-oriented (“I highly recommend to buy this template, author provides great support”), so i am pretty sure most users think their review will be public when they write it. That’s the way it should be, and i can’t wrap my head around the fact that you’re so inclined to leave it private despite the 1,000 requests from authors.
Honestly – 90% of item descriptions are showing these reviews as embedded images. Yes most of the time authors asked buyers for permissions – but wouldn’t it be simpler to have the review system public, and open for discussion?
You know, like every other review system out there.
Creattive saidI’ve submitted a new ticket regarding this one. I’m pretty sure they will not delete it but will post the response. I hope it’s not the same
he didn’t get this response for the lorem ispum text, but for another one. If he wasn’t too lazy to report it, it would be removed by support, I’m pretty sure…
Ah ok sorry, my bad.
Let us know what response you get
