Clients who edit my codes, create issues and want help for fixing these issues for free.

You guys should create accounts on https://www.elto.com :D

They offer 30% for each referred user. It’s not much i know, but i’ve made a little over $400 in a year by just referring clients for custom tweaks.

Hope someday soon we could send clients to Microlancer with affiliate links too :)

Reports an issue on IE8!! :D

@Ruben, this is absolutely interesting. For time matters I stopped doing customizations in 2012 but I have at least 20 requests per month. Thanks for sharing mate, I’ll take a look ;)

I had worked with this client sometimes ago. He asked for the quote of a single website. Later he agreed with my rate and want to begin the work. Actually it turns out he want a portal with multiple single web pages which he thinks is also considered a single website. :|

We’ve setup themecustomizers.com for this. Users can request customization and we scout for good developers who can take on these customizations. Works quite well :)

... don’t pay !

Running away when it’s time to pay is very annoying. It’s not just “small” clients that do that… I was once a victim of non-paid web design, and the culprit was the Beach Soccer Association of Ghana, a very well-known body here. It also happened with owners of a radio show on a top local channel… Since then, I’ve become stricter and wild. No advanced payment, no job done. I realized that by requesting 50% of deposit before starting work, I’ve not had this issue again. Some people simply don’t want you to play nice…

I hate it when someone:

user: Can I have support
US: Yes please go to our support site
user: Thanks I will do that now
user: Tried to sign in but it states I cant because I have not purchased any item from you.
US: You will need to sign in using your Envato username in which you purchased your item.
user: Well actually my friend purchased it and I am doing the customisations on it.
US: Please ask your friend to sign up to support and then use their account.
user: I cant as he is away, look if you are not going to give support I will rate just 1 star.
US: Without the account which purchased the item we will not support sorry.

Do they not know we are not stupid, we know they did not purchase the item and we know “its a friends theme and I’m customising it” is not true!
