To counter-act the heft of negative feedback on this:

@ Envato — Do what you think you need to do to improve the marketplace as efficiently as possible. I am a fan of the frontend changes happening on other Envato sites, and if dropping old visuals makes the marketplaces more extensible/maintainable then that means faster feature rollouts. Go for it.

@ Authors — You shot yourself in the foot assuming the background color would never change, and loading up item descriptions with images. Deal with it, and don’t make the same mistake again. But before you convert everything to 32-bit PNGs spend some time learning about image compression and start hosting on a solid CDN, or stop using images. You’re making the marketplaces feel slower for buyers and hurting everyone.

maybe one of our coder-gurus can write a small program or a script that would automatically convert images with a new color instead of the old gray color? not “on the fly”, of course, but off-line?

Regarding background color change: PLEASE NO. It’s a minor improve (not to discuss if it improves something, in fact) and will force all of us to spend valious time on updating images on ALL our items. Focus on other things, or better, go for a drink, Melbourne must be wonderful at this moment of the year! :P

LOL :D

For the love of God please don’t change what already works, can you please rather spend time and energy on new functionality, like improvements to home page exposure… honestly the background colour is fine for now, really guys – talk about dragging ones feet :D Tweaking boxes and colours etc is not going to improve sales for anyone.. so why waste time.. how about redesigning the home page!? could not agree more It seems pretty obvious now Envato will only make changes to the site that doesn’t interrupt sales distribution. Which is why we only see tweaks to stuff that already works, and slight shuffling around, tweaking colors… this site is gonna go nowhere if that policy doesn’t change.

time fly fast unfortunately :(

9 months ago work had been started on the ratings, I think is time we do a jump of quality and finally have those text reviews for the items near the star ratings. Would really love to read buyers thoughts, suggestion, critiques.
