OK I just wanted to inform all users about [author] strategy. He has bought from me a script on codecanyon regular license, after that he wrote that he would like to use it in on of his themes on themeforest, I do not allow this because I will use it on my own theme…. anyway I’ve told him that it is my right not to allow usage on themeforest and he rated my product with one star. I think this is unfair and the envato team should do something about this kind of behavior. :(

This probably would be better addressed via a support ticket than directly in the forums… But I think it’s unfair and hope Envato swoop on this guy and his dodgy behavior asap.

who’s this [author]? there’s an user called like this but he bought nothing from anyone

anyway, this thread will get locked/deleted since is against forum rules to debate other authors, staff or items. (when the debate is negative off course :) )

While it is indeed the case that it is against the forum rules to call out specific authors, I feel like you should be allowed to mention the problem that is being addressed here. It is valuable to know that this is happening, and on what scale. I’ll keep this thread open for now, but I do have to edit out the specific author’s name.

Discussing the problem publicly is fine, discussing a specific author is not.

Lets be honest, not a single entity in the world got where it did on 5 star ratings. Even authors !

Your are dealing with people, they will have a myriad of reasons and excuses for rating the way they do. Just take it on the chin, but be aware if patterns form, thats where I think Envato should sttep in.

You are selling Extended license but you are not permitting to use your item as a part of a product if any author buy extended license. is it fair? I think not. You should stop sell extended license :D
