Guys, that’s not funny anymore. Everyone has a chance to earn some money. If envato wants to experiment with different business models, or they just want to increase the amount of new authors because of new and unique themes with a bit lower quality, or want to provide a choice between the quality with larger price range, let’s just work on our themes. Remember your first theme, was it good enough? Let’s be a community and respect other works and authors, this marketplace is not only for elite authors. Did you see any of power elite authors or someone with green paws arguing about themes quality? They just create new themes, one after another. Let’s be polite Just my 2 cents

I’m agree

I also was wondering what’s with the 35$ price tags on some new themes? Couple of them are surely worth more – and with “new” pricing policy I thought that 30$-35$ price is for simple themes like vcard etc. not for e.g magazine themes.

- $25-30 – Mobile or simple, single page themes
- $35-40 – Standard themes
- $45-50 – Themes with advanced functionality
- $55-60 – Themes incorporating eCommerce or compatibility with BuddyPress

Ah, so $35 is the new base price for a standard theme. Do you think it is possible for a non eCommerce or BuddyPress theme to have features so advanced (perhaps revolutionary, never-seen-before features) that it could be priced $55-60 (or higher)?

Of course, this is by way of enunciation and not as limitation.

Yes everyone has the right to earn but everyone should also have the eye required for designing. I mean for authors who spend months designing aren’t getting the right exposure.

Its not only about money its about one’s effort that he/she put’s while designing and after all that what he gets 5-10 sales. I think he/she deserves a lot more.

Talking about power elite authors, they have already earned the exposure. Also they have teams of designers working together or for support.

What about those designers working alone day and night,spending months to get the design right, but not getting the right exposure.

Doesn’t matter actually about the team. I am working alone, 2 of my first items were rejected, my next 2 are soft disabled and really i dont want them back. After a year here i have a necessary experience.

New designers and devs are coming here every day. After theme approval they see only negative forum threads where people wIth black and other paws tell us that new themes are totally suck and their themes are the best of the best. Well, i thought we are a COMMUNITY . Instead of negative threads you can point layout mistakes, wrong typography, whitespace issues, so help these people make approved items closer to standards, but no, much easier just to post a thread and tell us that envato dropped quality standards. Yes, that’s the fact. Now what? Let’s make our own quality standards higher and stop this kind of threads

Exactly, I trust the job of our dear reviewers here, they aren’t any noob that don’t know nothing about web, designer, WordPress or related subjects, so, if they said it’s good enough, we need trust this decision :)

Almost of items are really awesome, but some items are more awesome than others :D

The best thing to do, like was already said, is keep working to get more experience, if you work hard, you can be a Featured Author or have a Featured File :)

If your item is good enough, you’ll get sales, in the homepage or not.

Cheers :)

For example, one way for exposure should be with weekly featured items, since a while ago i asked what was the criterion to get in… got answer that it should be unique, well designed etc.

But i see that mostly the great selling themes get there… with few exception.

so the question is it ok to give the exposure to themes that are already doing great? or you should give a chance to cool themes that get pushed up really fast of the front page.

Maybe my thinking is way off?
