...The authors get rewarded with higher commission the more they sell…why shouldn’t there be an incentive for buyers to buy more often?

Great thread and if MojoThemes is good enough for you Chris, I may give it a try as well.

Same here…

Don’t be stupid!

Just because you bought many themes on this marketplace, it doesn’t mean that they should give you money…

MojoThemes has given money to you, because, they have a looooot less buyers and authors than ThemeForest.

You look like a j*rk showing off his money and asking for more. You should be ashamed. Most of your forum posts are about how much money you own …

Do you know what humility is?

This is your first post on the forum and you do it to insult me.

Please tell me why I should be ashamed?

This is the first time someone has called me a jerk on here, so enlighten me please.

Calling me stupid or any insult is not a proper way to start a conversation.

I’m sorry for have insulted you :)

However I still think that you are just trying to show off yourself…

C’mon! Most of your posts on the forums are about how awesome you are because of the money you spent here. You even posted a screenshot!

Don’t you think you should be ashamed for thinking you are best than other buyers? And for showing off this way?

For Envato he is probably the best buyer…

what happens when you get more than 5000 purchases? ;)

Once you make the 5001th purchase, a special holographic projection of the Envato logo streams out of your CD drive (let’s face it, you don’t use that thing for anything else right?) and as it spins you hear the music from 2001: A Space Odyssey, and then your account unlocks a special version of Apple’s new Siri voice controlled system so that you can speak to the Envato logo and it will bring you the files you need… :-)

But seriously we are going to need another badge after 5k purchases! And Jordan’s been working on our upcoming Buyer Rewards program. As a couple of people have mentioned, we have a lot of focus on Authors, but are working to increase our buyer-oriented stuff too. Aside from anything else, stuff that benefits buyers … benefits authors!

Chris, after your post I decided to investigate and see who is closest to hitting 5000 purchases, and amazingly there is a buyer with double your buy count! I won’t name him/her as they don’t seem to be a forum user. But looks like they will be the first one to hit the milestone. Though I think you are out in front on actual $ spent, which will count for more in our rewards program! They must buy a lot of cheaper items from GraphicRiver I suspect.

The two of you are the leads in power buyers, though there are a few more gold buyers these days besides us! Still, more would be nice ;-)

“most” of my posts?

how bout maybe 2 or 3 out of almost 500 posts, and in those posts, I gave a thank you to the authors for their great products.

Im not trying to show off at all, every buyer and author contributes in some way, some more than others.

I never said at any time I was better than anyone else.

I wont be replying to you anymore, because you seem to be trying to troll, once I see you have contributed by posting postive things on the forum, I will consider replying to you again.

yes you need to work on buyers as well as authors, because without buyers, why would authors keep releasing products?

I was going to email you on regards to this, but last time it took almost 2 months to get a reply back, I even called the land of OZ, but their was no way to leave a msg for you, or drew, just a general mail box, i figured someone would answer the phone or have a voicemail system of some sort with so many employees.

Anyways, you know my email if you wish to contact me about this.

I hear what you’re saying Chris, but as a buyer I’m quite happy with the great bundles offered now and again and more than happy with the amount of pre-done work from the authors on the themes I buy when stacked up against the price I’m paying.

That’s not to say that when you get to the 5,000 purchases mark you shouldn’t get a bit of love – but price is the key for me and that keeps me a happy punter.

Cheers AL

Definitely agree! We can, and will do more!

And yes, sorry my inbox is often super busy so it can take a while, I believe the time you are referring to was when I was on paternity leave for the birth of my first son. Still I’m sorry it took a while.

Yep, we don’t really use telephones here, I think there is a landline with a messagebox because the office manager sometimes sends me voicemails to my email, but the majority are telemarketers :-)

Sure, I’ll shoot you an email!
