There are a lot more effective ways to market something then direct email. You could start buy simply doing a google search for online marketing / advertising. No one is going to give you anything on a silver platter though. Above all you need to invest time.
You want a list of 3 million plus user emails.. for free? People would pay tens if not 100s of thousands of dollars for such a list. Data entry is big business, I don’t see any company giving their user emails out to any one for free or even paid.
My advice would be to start making your own list / pay someone to make it for you. But even then, emailing people who have no opted in to recieve your emails would be a violation of spam laws.
Well done mate! I hope to be there one day
Lets be honest here though, 1 star items wouldn’t & shouldn’t ever make it pass the initial review… 2 star items even :/
it would be nice if there was a support ticket category for rating dispute.. or better yet a simple rating dispute button. We can report comments, why not ratings? After you submit the dispute (I would include links to images to the comments etc) someone at envato can make a final decision.
Obviously this would require additional Envato resources. Something they might not be keen on doing, but I think it’s needed.

Never waited more then a 10 minutes for a reply from support and they migrate your site for free.
Im a little confused as to how the ‘active items’ and ‘public portfolio’ differ? Or am I missing something super obvious here, were they always there, Is there any difference and whats the point? :/
An excellent write up full of good information for all authors not just the ones featured.
You make a nice point about the ‘about pages’, I’ll have to add one into the demos. Although, I’ll be doing some of my own research before I jump in. Not sure if it should warrant it’s own page template or a as jaynesh said just a default page.
ps. thank you for including my item!
I would also like to confirm this bug. I’ve been sitting here refreshing the main listings page for an hour wondering why the item rating wouldn’t display. Added a little br tag to the end of the item description, saved, refreshed listings page. Stars are now showing.
edit: ps. congrats on your item Jaynesh, i’ve had a lot of enjoyment watching that listing page the last couple of days
