After the latest (last months) developments on the Envato marketplaces I wanted to take the time and digest the whole state of the marketplace today. Not saying that my views are those of everyone here. They represent me and the people I collaborate with and our views on issues which I noticed to find common ground with many other authors. I wrote them down in a post on Medium which I’d like to share with you the authors, Envato staff and whoever else would like to have a read (8 min read according to Medium)

An Open Letter to Envato – An author’s views on current and forthcoming marketplace issues.

Thank you for taking the time to read through and looking forward to reactions.

Regards, Alex

PS: Hopefully no one will get trigger finger happy and lock the thread, for now at least.

@envato staff: Dare/Care to make this thread sticky next to the Collis’ thread? We are a community after all, right? ;)

Indeed, although I think that nothing’s gonna change except that Envato might “produce” new competitors and really lose their competitive strength.

+1 Envato forgets that they are just a middle man and no matter how hard they will try to please buyers without authors in the end they will have nothing to sell.
