I was just browsing themeforest and some suggestions comes to my mid.

This is the list of things I would change in Themeforest.

Main page:
  1. search form. Maybe it’s just me but it’s hard to find it at the first time when you are looking for it, I think it should be separate box on the main page. There should also be some more advanced search box where you can specify what kind of file you are looking for.
  2. recent items titles. I think the font is too bright and too small but thats just a detail. Exept that, the main page looks awesome for not logged users. When you are logged the one thing which annoys me is list of posts from blog. When title is long, and you are hovering it, it makes whole box bigger. Just a detail but annoying.
Browsing
  1. Imagine you’re a user who wants to find some cool template. What do you do? Probably search for a keword or just browse. When you find some nice template on the list you click it and see details. You have also a tab called “Related” which is good idea, but nice feature would be links for next and previous item from categorie, just like a posts. A lot more easier and faster to check other items.
Improvements for users.
  1. It would be nice to have some info about statistcs eg. how many peoples visit my profile and each item, how they have found it (search, browse, external link). I know it’s probably impossible but would be nice ;)
  2. What is needed urgently IMHO – notification when someone leaves a comment under my item. Notification when someone reply to my comment on forum etc.. And e-mail notification or some e-mail reports of how many sales user have.

Don’t take me wrong. I really LOVE themeforest and I think it’s the best of the best! And i love to be a part of it. My suggestions are just to make it a little bit better place in my opinion. I hope to start some nice discussion here :) Cheers!

ps. sorry for my english. It’s not my native language. Still learning. Hope you will understand me:)

Great suggestions. We’ll definitely consider them.

I agree about the home page blog links. When you hover over them, they become bold – which many times causes them to wrap onto a new line. I’ll see about fixing this.

In regards to the search form, I think we’ve categorized the templates as best as we can – through the Files tab.

Thanks so much!

Yea ! I really think if someone leaves a comment on one of your themes there should be an email right away to notify you !

Oh Yea! A list of the buyers would be great.A little notice for comments would be great, too! How i said in another topic it would be very useful if you have your own in/out box for personal messages like in forums.
