our aim here is to set clear expectations with buyers without placing unreasonable expectations on authors.
And you decided to do this by placing the unreasonable expectations on authors yourself…? What am I missing here?

Last but certainly not least is to remind everyone that one of the key goals of this change is to reduce the amount of support work for the majority of authors.
You actually want to reduce the amount of work they voluntarily do, by imposing some rules nobody wants to agree to… Yeah, right, we believe you mean well for your authors…

The main problem here, as I see it, is that Envato got greedy and saw a chance to grab even more money out of the milking cow aka ThemeForest, by trying to get 30% out of something that they get 0% right now… Sad…

Soooooooo many loose ends and missing features that affect ALL 8 MARKET (PLACES), yet every day I only see new features that affect ThemeForest (and possibly CodeCanyon) only ... :(

To name a few:
1) faceted search and other search improvements
2) shopping cart and multiple licences…
3) numerous small fixes/additions which were recommended numerous times and were promised to be “looked at”...

I am sorry, but I really don’t like this anymore.

Short comment: although my files rarely (almost never) need any support, I still get some question or task from time to time and I always respond in less than one day, and I do it gladly. I know that this new Envato’s decision doesn’t hit me directly, but indirectly this whole mess worries me a lot, as it raises so many red flags in my mind…

Aaaaand yet another indication that Envato focuses mainly on ThemeForest and cares less and less about other market(places :P )

Imho, it depends. Yes, clips are more interesting with added music, but on the other hand – I believe that many potential buyers buy clips with the idea of type of music they want to use it with? So it might even distract buyers. Or what if buyers are browsing for footage while listening to some music, and then music from the footage mixes with it…?

I’ve noticed this as well…

And also often happens that motion graphics file ends up in stock footage (something that is clearly computer rendered, like space/planets, but is photo-realistic which, I guess, confuses reviewers…)

So far people recommended you: Slovenia, Greece, Turkey… Between Slovenia and Greece you’ll find Serbia (which I recommend :) ) so… what about road trip? ;)

In terms of enjoyment, definitely iPod Classic 80GB. Although I really don’t like the whole Apple fuss, their old iPods were/are one of the best portable audio products I’ve encountered so far.

In terms of work: the best, most important and the most significant thing I ever bought was Zoom H2 portable sound recorder. It literally changed my life :)

I have one as well, but I lost weight and now it’s large for me… :D
Same I’ve dropped from 115 kg to 70 kg

Omg, that’s drastic! I hope it was intentional… ;)
