I have a suggestion. It would be better if you move announcement section to the top of the page. For example, I’ve found the “Happy ThemePunch Day!” by chance and I guess so many of other members did not notice it at all.

People will look for items they want in the whole page but with current design you can’t make a bold thing in the homepage…

IMO of course :)

Cheers,
Iman

About the Recent changes in the homepage: let me be honest and tell everyone what i personally feel, its horrible, the original design was very very beautiful, and i dont think you guys should change it. and thats not the only problem, i think envato is trying to become someone who they r totally not, and i know that it is not intentional, but i have a feeling that they r trying to make it look like other marketplace’s design, seriously guys?!! thats totally silly, but if u really really have to change it, i think “EFEKT_Studio” has a great idea. lets hope for the best.

@justinfrench – Why don’t you guys make a competition for a best web solution for envato marketplaces with some $10.000 or $20.000 prize. After all, you have the some of the best designers/developers in the world.

Competition is not very good for so big deal, but I agree with EFEKT_Studio that some best developers work on Themeforest and Envato can hire some of elite developers to made new search engine, cart, and some other functionality that we all need. For example when Envato add new items root category they contact Elite authors with paid aportunity to made first themes for this new categories, why Envato can’t contact good elite authors with padi job for search engine or cart?

It looks nice :),
to me the header is cool and the search box too, no probs with that !
But the most probs it’s what happen below !!!!
Sorry to say that, but visually, it’s a big messy, it is not clear, in fact, there’s a lacks a real demarcation between the parts (Featured, New, Free, etc …)
We can’t find directly the parts, so it gives not want to pay attention to them !
It is a first step ? :p
Best regards
Steve

If I would submit a portfolio template with a similar design it definitely would be hard rejected :)

Tired of hearing opinions like this – really not sure if these are serious or joke.

If a design gets approved on ThemeForest, it doesn’t mean it will improve the business of buyer / customer. In the same way if the marketplace page design doesn’t look like a ThemeForest approval standard, it doesn’t mean it is unfit for the purposes we expect.

After a buyer completes customisation, our templates may not have same design standards – but still serve better for their business. ;)

It’s a joke, I think it’s a joke.

Don’t be offended but from a community with such great designers and developers, they (envato) could come up with better design from every point of view (design, functionality, etc). I’m not gonna start to detail the drawbacks as other people already did (take a look at previous replies).

Anyway, this changes were asked years ago.

Overall conversions (visitors to purchases) did not drop. If they dropped even a little we would not have rolled out these changes to 100% :)
Of course it not drop in “overall”. Now people who previously buy not power elite authors items will buy only top items, instead of regular items from regular authors. Market sales now moved from regular authors to power elite authors who have very popular items with a lot of sales.
I completely understand that concern, but as I’ve mentioned in other replies, the number of clicks through to new items from the home page also did not significantly change.

Sorry for bothering dude(you look sympatic in your avatar)but i don’t know what you are talking about.

I am speaking about videohive and motion graphics category.I don’t care about the other sites on Envato(sorry for that, fellow authors,but i have to).

I have a portfolio with 200 motion graphic files. After the New page got online i’ve had 2 sales in a week. The week before i had 25 sales and July was my 3rd best month in 2 years. After you made your changes,it was a total disaster for me and other fellow authors on Videohive.

Either you don’t know what you are doing, or you manipulate everything in a certain direction.

You are just redirecting buyers to what will give you the most money with a minimal cost. My 2 cents.

That’s ok for me.Elite authors deserve it,and you Envato deserve it. But tell us-all the small and medium authors-that you don’t like to have us here on Envato. It’s more fair,i think. If you like to expand with 100-150 authors,in certain categories and sites, it’s your right. You decide.

It’s clear now that The New Page is for the benefit of the big authors and for getting rid of the ants.

You have always the very nice excuse,that it’s summer time. I don’t buy it. My statistics don’t say so.

You are just redirecting buyers to the elite (sorry guys,no harm, you deserve it). Just admit it.

Coz you’re making some big backend changes to the Envato Marketplaces!

I and other fellow authors just want to know in a honestly way.

Thank you!

Similar situation is happening to me. Up to change the homepage of last week I had 22 sales. July was my best month from begin my stay. And I thought that August will be the same. But after the change this week, I have only 2 sales. What is happening? So should not be!
