I would search the forums but… yeah I never get results :) I doubt I’ll have them anymore locally unfortunately.

I tried to find it, did invest quite some time. Guess what I found?

Ladies and Gentleman, the pipeline: http://videohive.net/forums/message/go_to/547530

For those guys who haven’t been around for quite some time: “It is in the pipeline” was the former used analogy for what is now replaced by “We are listening”, “We are still in the planning phase”, “We are working on it”, or “we have a dedicated team that will look into that issue”. All of these sentences mean something along the lines: There will be no changes made in the near future (=next 365 days)

btw, the linked thread is a good read, you will understand the dynamics and anger and frustration of the people in this thread much more when you read through that 2 years old thread :)

Although that’s not the thread about the thumbnails and future expectations.. it’s an awesome find and yes totally worth a read for anyone a little newer here to understand where a lot of us are coming from. Great read I just went thru most of it!

Why don’t you guys simply restore the old menu back until you fix/improve the current one? Also is this going so slow?

Because we’re not only seeking feedback in the forums, we’re watching analytics and usage. Iterating the design based on feedback. Iterating the design based on data as takes a little longer.

We have a second branch ready to deploy with adjusted opacity and a few other simple tweaks, should go live early next week.

Looking forward to it Justin… thanks.

That was a very good suggestion from jonathan01 having a shopping cart on Envato marketplaces… every leading stock marketplace has a shopping cart with checkout! And that suggestion was made over 2 years ago…. It just makes logical sense to have these features, it seems obvious to the community so why does Envato drag their feet? What do you guys do back there? :D I think we’re past the point of asking nicely and being civil.. WE DEMAND THESE UPDATES.. NOW ;)

The analytics are going to be a lie!

I can prove this.

For instance there area over 4.6mil people, I think around 50% are actual active users browsing the site frequently.

But as new buyers are coming here everyday lets raise the stats from 2.3mil to about 3mil people.

Now out of personal experience I have accidently clicked them buttons at least 50 times since they have come into place because of muscle memory and because of the late nights and heavy workload I am in auto drive a lot these days ;)

Now lets that at least 20% of the 3mil users have clicked the buttons accidentally.

Thats 600k users.

Now lets say that 50% of them users have accidentally clicked the button 5 times over the last week or so which is not alot.

The other 50% were lucky and have quick muscle memory and only clicked it once.

That makes the total number of false clicks a staggering 1.8 million.

Do you not think that these figures will make the analytics a little redundant?

Its not like its only a few hundred or thousand, its a staggering amount.

Granted its only a rough estimate but I bet this is true.

So basically you’ve released an experimental design and are seeing how it goes?

I don’t see any mention of usability testing on your list of things to do. This is a shockingly amateur approach for a site as busy and big as this. A couple of weeks later and I still have to hunt for links despite being a regular visitor. You’ve lost sales from me without a doubt as I’m struggling to find what I’m looking for now.


Iterating the design

Is this really what you mean: http://www.thefreedictionary.com/iterating ?

Come on Envato this isn’t good enough, your authors and customers deserve better than a ‘suck it and see’ approach to usability and design.

+1 That’s what I was just thinking. This is just wrong, I’m pretty sure the “experiment” could have been tested properly without launching it for millions of users…

Of course, all responsible companies will carry out thorough user-centered interaction design testing, either in-house or remotely before a live launch. One corporate I worked for wouldn’t allow me to move an ad box 10 pixels to the left without several days thorough testing of my new design.

The irony of all this is that Envato require authors to have thoroughly tested their products before they’re allowed on the marketplace.
