Nice one, thanks! :)

for functionality improvements, I suggest Envato to take in consideration the possibility to merge non-exlusive and exclusive into one account, as tim mcmorris suggested two years ago here: http://videohive.net/forums/thread/why-i-want-an-exclusivity-choice-per-item-not-account/62630?page=1

please! :)

And the change is just 1 hexadecimal number as per hex code and the difference is too little to even consider.

I think the bg lighter part is not shown in the preview image.

it will be indeed retarded to change the background 1 hex point. If this turns out to be true then we can close the forum and go home to our life and family because there will be no hope of ever see the real improvements.

by lighter background they probably mean #f4f4f4

Aw, I thought the screenshot included the color change :D ROFL

In case the intended change is much different one, then that’s fine.

I was afraid this when preparing my GIFs and this finally happened :) But lighter background I think will definitely better and fresher. So its need to announce new color and announce the date of migration to all authors can prepare in advance.

I think those tabs are a step backwards. There’s no distinction with the breadcrumbs and main navigation. It just looks like a bunch of text. A first time user will be probably be confused.

Pretend that you are a first time user and you have just found your way to this item page and now you have to process all of this:

Not very pleasant. It all looks way too confused and complex.

I understand that you are trying to slowly transition into this flat trend but I think by the time you have completed this transition throughout the whole site, this trend will probably be forgotten. Remember, you don’t have to be flat to be modern. Envato is a network with the most creative people in the world. You should be the trend setter not a trend follower.

Those “tabs” don’t look too good, sorry. I agree with some of the authors here, start a small project on improving the homepage and then bringing UI consistency across all marketplaces elements. And the lighter background color change is irrelevant – you make a small color change on your side (a few seconds of work) and that affects a lot of authors (a lot more seconds of work).

My point of view: Make the links at least somewhat visible. The buttons should also fit inside new design. If you remain with the current background color (#D2D1D0) + lighter transition from above (if will be less than 250px) = no one will have to change anything.

Instead of building on top of the current envato marketplace design, why not actually refresh the design and start from scratch? Obviously you guys want to make the marketplaces consistent with the other envato websites.

That will never happen when your building on top of the old design.
