Don’t get me wrong I am in love in this community, but if you don’t have a bit of luck hitting the jackpot… then this becomes just a side earning and that’s not my goal.
I haven’t hit the Jackpot too as you can see by my overall number of sales :)
But, between a Jackpot and being just a side earning there’s a big distance and I’m happy to be on that fringe these last months. And I think that a problem for a large number of complaining authors (and in this case I’m not referring to any of your previous comments) is that they haven’t hit any Jackpot yet… But, beware: I’m always working for a Jackpot item though :D

Actually I am still in the comfort zone, but I am following trends from the days when I was not an author, and things need improvement, since then, with respect to envato devs, things didn’t change that much.

Again, lots to respond to here, I will respond to as much as possible as quickly as possible, but please note that I will be dropping by each day, and perhaps multiple times per day, to ensure all the big questions here are answered. Keep the conversation coming. Thanks for understanding. :)

... Regarding specific upgrades/fixes that deal with the issues mentioned in this thread, I’m already in the process of finding out what more we can share with you. I will need to resolve that dilemma before I can report back, but already on it. I saw your questions here, great summary, thank you. :)

No answer, Ok, I giveup! :D No longer needed any answer from staff. There are too many things to worry in life! Discussion about home page exposure are as usual a philosophical stuff. Finally I am tired looking these kind of threads! Sometimes getting tired is better than not getting tired! :P

I am talking to myself in the public forum! :D

@VF They haven’t answered even the topic with the official WordPress changes, which were due to this november, I’ve already given up on waiting something to happen here. But it’s good to see other authors giving feedback.

It’s really a shame to see how the bigger Envato gets, the less they care about its users and community. Sad. This model can only lead to fail, lucky them there are no real competitors yet.

Envato needs to do something soon, cos this type of thing will make people jump ship and sell elsewhere if competitors pop up. If we new authors can’t sell here, they will go elsewhere.. and so will the buyers.

I think making improvements just to avoid losing members also not a productive thinking – that won’t fit. Regardless of such things, improvements should happen just as a commitment and realization of responsibility. When it is technically possible to arrange equal initial exposure time and not doing that for a long time just points how irresponsible both Envato as well as us authors ourselves.
