Actually sometimes when I read through all those posts and critique, I ask myself why not create your own marketplace. I don’t mean every author should make his/her own marketplace but alltogether? There are so many developers out there from every single niche. Theme-Design, Frontend Development, Backend Development, so many various talents reaching from authors who know more about Social Media, while others know more about Video Advertising – yet it isn’t possible to group together and make an open, community-driven marketplace with some kind of democratic elected management where all authors drive the whole project into a specific direction. I know it probably won’t earn that much as envato for example but who knows? As long as you don’t think about this – nothing will happen.

That won’t work. You need a tough head management and bold marketing team. I don’t believe in “community making business” – I’m from former USSR and I know how communism works :D

No actually I wouldn’t say those are the reasons why it could fail. Since here are many various talents I’m pretty sure that it is possible to make a all-surrounding team out of it – theoretically.

In Practice it’s of course a different story. I guess such a thing would fail because of reasons like missing stamina, too different goals or even an outstanding capital which is needed for every startup.

Regarding the analogy to communism – maybe I haven’t explained it well. I didn’t meant a fully community-driven project but some sort of it, with an authority of course. But something like “uservoice”. I’m sure you know what I mean. And Communism is, as much as I’ve learned about it, a moneyless socialist movement. Or at least a movement where all are the same. This would be the case here. :)

@EireStudio. Ta. I guess I’ll just go google something like “how to write a script for chrome” :D

Yeah… or you could use something like Tampermonkey. :O

Envato, haven’t you ever thought of just temporarily hiring a trusted TF author to do this? Quite frankly, I would fix these issues for free just to get them the hell out of here. Issues like, but not limited to, the reply button and the pagination.

Hi everyone, we’re in a code freeze at the moment with the Rails 3 upgrade, but I want to get this fixed straight afterwards. In fact, I hacked this back into shape on the commute this morning :)

As soon as this can be reviewed, merged and deployed, it will be, sorry for the wait.
