This feature was requested here: http://themeforest.net/forums/thread/autoreply-in-item-comments-during-absence-can-envato-add-this/114418?page=1.

It would make our lives so much easier not only during vacations, but during regular work days as well because so many of us provide support via a third-party service or forum, and we still have customers posting support inquiries in the comments section on a daily basis. Providing an auto-reply to those people would save us so much time.

It’s really tiring and frustrating having to point so many customers to the support forum. I can imagine this being frustrating for customers as well because they need to wait longer to get a response to their questions.

You’re absolutely right, guys. This is a “nice to have” feature that we’ve previously recorded and represented on your behalf as something that would be of great value to both authors and customers alike. Please be encouraged to know that we’re mindful of subtle improvements such as this and we ensure they fall to the right people and teams that can make these things happen. Collis’ roadmap for this year has Sustainable Item Support as one of our main focus areas so expect lots of significant improvement in this area later this year.

We will continue to represent your suggestions and ideas internally as always.

And just before purchasing, there may be a warning message like “this author is on vacation now and he/she can’t provide item support till xx.xx.xxxx -> “Ok,I get it” or “cancel”)

Exactly

OK I will wait till the author is back (1%) No, I will browse further through 1000s of other beautiful themes and let this guy miss on a sale just because he is on vacation.(99%)
