Leaves a “non-fiveStar rating” without a comment. :)
By the way (sorry if it already exists) we should also have a “I like it when a client” version. I don’t think it will be as popular as this one but anyway , there are many , many fantastic buyers here too!

It’s not as popular. People prefer to complain. It’s human nature

I Hate It When a Client…

  1. purchases your HTML template at $10, clearly not in the WordPress category
  2. Gives you a 1-star rating before getting in touch
  3. Sends a cold e-mail – “Your WordPress theme is not even working, i can’t install, please refund asap”

Clients who ignore every major “support forum” sign and still use the comments section of an item as a support center.

Even worse: Clients that just added a support ticket and then go to the comments section of the TF item to tell everyone their issue. (Which is most of the time something custom they’ve added to your theme and then scream nothing works.)

Clients who don’t read the documentation and ask how they should change a simple image, which is clearly in the documentation.

Clients that use your theme for their client, and only have 2 days after purchasing it to finish it. Then they discover a tiny bug, type it in capitals only, you provide them support within 2 hours (in the weekend!) but enfortunately the client didn’t make his deadline and gives your item… 1 star.

When they give you specs to design from then after you design they totally change everything again, but they still want to pay you the same amount.
