I’ve forwarded them on to our product guys and while they won’t be reversing or tweaking the change at this stage (given it’s an experiment and we want to see how it goes first), they’ll definitely take them into consideration for future iterations as well as related projects such as buyer education and sustainable item support.

Yes, they’ll “definitely” take them into consideration. For future iterations. Yeaaah, sure, like all the time, in all the other topics. If future is 2050, we might as well wait for it.

No offense, but this is not enough. Nobody needs it, if you want to use Envato Studio, use our 30% to promote it, don’t throw it on our back while reducing the value of our product. This is unprofessional, you have one successful product and you mess it up in order to grow some other microbusinesses. This is not going to work.

Pissing off the authors will have its limit, someday. Don’t you see that barely 20% of what you do is welcomed here? Why don’t you use your time to actually do something useful and requested by us?

It takes months to do something as small as this button, that doesn’t deliver any quality… and then you keep saying that “We take your feedback very seriously and will definitely consider it for the next review or thing”. No, you don’t care at all about us and this can only become clearer and clearer by each passing month.

Seriously, how do you guys work? 80% of the authors here complain and write feedback and all the Envato Team has to say is that “this is an experiment and we’ll see how it goes?”. Basically you will wait to see if you generate enough revenue in order to keep it. Please, can someone that can actually do/say something useful, from the Envato Team, come and say something? I(and for sure some other authors) are so tired of hearing the same bullsh*t over and over again, without seeing anything happening.

+1 with FinalDestiny’s insights on staff responses and Envato’s overall actions. There are limits for experiments.

This service have some logic if it were added as an addon in the purchase of our themes. Lost of hours to make an install systems by just one click. And then someone else win $50 for that click.

Shame on you.

But what is more ridiculous is:
I have signup in the studio Envato 2 months ago, and I not received any answer.

Hi again,

I’ve just had a quick chat with our legal team about the concerns raised by UK Themes and others.

What about concerns raised by rest of us?
I’ve forwarded them on to our product guys and while they won’t be reversing or tweaking the change at this stage (given it’s an experiment and we want to see how it goes first), they’ll definitely take them into consideration for future iterations as well as related projects such as buyer education and sustainable item support.
Thanks, If I have your attention already ;) could you please clarify how the process actually works? Who install the themes, does it go to selected providers from Envato Studio?

Yep, that’s exactly right. The button links to this page :)

I think the middle ground would be an Opt-in / Opt-out for authors. And if an author wishes to opt-in, the author should be given priority if he has an Envato Studio account.

+1 Absolutely. Giving authors priority would be a great way to get the relationship started between author and buyer, and would provide an extra potential revenue stream for authors. Envato makes the same amount either way; the experience for authors and buyers would be improved though.

Why cannot we as authors offer this service? We currently do all the support free of charge, but cannot ask any fees for installation. Am I missing something?

Here’s a part of the Legal agreement: http://themeforest.net/legal/author

23. As an author you promise to us that you will:
not use Envato Market to offer non-Envato-Market items to buyers;

Because they can’t earn money out of your work and time which they didn’t own or support in any way.
