Hey, you’re on Themeforest! :D

I currently have to reach Elite Author status with sound effects, and most of my sales come from $1 items. Some people REALLY have their work cut out for them if they want to reach that level.

Before we send authors into outer-space.. I think Envato should spend more money on a complete redesign of the entire marketplace so it’s as good as it can be and sustainable for the next 10 years. For a multimillion dollar company, you should have a marketplace design that reflects that – but it has the same layout since it started . The site isn’t even responsive yet, come on!

Fair enough feedback, although the rewards are there to provide authors with inspiration to build amazing things!

Making the marketplaces responsive is a whole other undertaking, with a bit of history :)

One our of our front end devs, Jordan, wrote about it here, a great read if you have time: http://webuild.envato.com/blog/making-the-envato-marketplaces-responsive/

was under impression that you got the vegemite and tshirt and the rest when hitting elite at 75.000. when this has changed?

made a mistake on previous post, wanted to write 125.000$ :)

Hey Doru! Thanks for the kind words!

The first care pack has not changed, it was always awarded at the $125K in total sales point, but now, after September 1 when these new rewards kick in, you get the Studio Credit as well :)

Winning!

Hey, this is a quote for the rest of us dreaming about being themeforest authors (including me)

I found a “bug”. The rewards from the 25,000,000 section should be at the 75k section :nerdy:

I’m about to hit my red paw soon. Those $1 sales add up. :D In the eyes of an Elite Author, that may not seem like much in comparison, but to me, that’s an achievement.
