Hi all, What do you think about older items without update in TF? Do better not be deleted from marketplace?

I think if this items is not be in marketplace, So searchs for other new items with more features will be better. :)

What do you think?

Well the first question is why delete them? How do you know they don’t work fine and have zero issues – you can’t just go off the last date something was touched :) We have things in place such as buyers are able to ask questions before buying an item, we have support so if an item doesn’t work it can be soft disabled so the author can update etc – I think we’re pretty much covered on this subject really.

We talking about WordPress themes? A carefully made WordPress theme can work for years without needing to be updated in most cases (unless it uses functions that become depreciated). Anything that old I’d just retire it and offer it for free.

About all items

Also i think design of this items is outdated, and i think when this items will be soft disabled or deleted, this a special privilege for new items that will be showing better in search pages.

If the buyers consider it useful, why remove it? The buyers are capable themselves to realize which theme is new and which not. If a theme works perfectly fine, why remove it? You think you’ll have more sales by removing old items? I doubt it
