authors need to host their live previews but
  1. shared hosting can be uber slow
  2. dedicated server can be uber expensive
  3. virtual server is often just like 1 but more expensive
  4. cloud server = virtual server but the “cloud” word allows commercials to price it higher

so, what about a group of author getting a dual xeon, hardware raid, unmetered gigabit dedicated server and share the expenses ?

I like the idea if the group is not very large and composed by trusted authors only. :)

well why not?

instead of bussines cards and marmite jar :P, the elite authors (or from a certain sales figure up) could get dedicated server support from envato. Is in envato interest to have working previews and lighting server answer, else people may think the theme have some problem because it loads very slow

I remember a while ago several wordpress previews hosted on mediatemple were hacked and god knows how much damage it did for their business. It’s impossible for envato to grant such a thing.

I’m keen to this thing, since I’ll sooner or later jump into the WP train. So, count me in.
